Meadow Hills Golf Course is an 18-hole course in Aurora that was designed by Henry B. Hughes, who designed a few other courses in the Colorado countryside. This municipal golf course stretches over 6,492 yards, playing to a par of 70. The course's landscape includes six lakes, which provide water hazards that come into play on several holes. It is also very well-bunkered. Meadow Hills Golf Course's signature hole is the par-4 18th. The hole is 401 yards and requires a tricky shot over a water hazard. There is also a putting green and on-site teaching pro, as well as twilight discounts.

Classic Muni, Old Time Former Country Clubv

This course had a lot of reviews but since the GolfPass - GolfAdvisor merger it looks like only a handful remain? I had written a review just a few years ago but it's gone. I don't live right near the course but I like to get over there at least once a month as it rarely disappoints and can often play in 4 hours or less, even on weekends sometimes.

This course is a fun, walkable classic muni that was once a formidable country club course back in the throwback days. Not long at only 6500 and change from the tips, par 70 (back 9 has 3 par 3s and 2 par 5s) it nevertheless requires straight and strategic shots due to the tree lines and sometimes narrow fairways with OB and hazards coming into play more often than not. It's rare for me not to be in "tree jail" more than once during 18 holes, sometimes even after a decent tee shot. Greens are relatively small so GIRs are good, not a lot of undulations and fairly readable. Course conditions are regularly excellent from tee box to green. Staff is friendly and water for drinking and towels usually every 3 or 4 holes as with most City of Aurora courses. They have a popular city amateur 2-day tourney every Sep that's always fun.

Aurora's Vintage Gem

Golfers who live near Aurora are lucky to have five different courses to choose from. Each with its own unique qualities. If I was pressed to pick just one course to play then I would likely settle on Murphy Creek, the links style monster out east of town. Meadow Hills would come In a close second place. Luckily I get to play both from time to time!

Meadow Hills is an old layout with a classic feel. The city does a great job of maintaining this beautiful golf course. The greens are quite small, they are mostly tilted from back to front and are very fast and smooth. Most of the fairways are narrow and lined by mature trees. Tee shots that miss the fairway at this course are often penalized by needing to punch out away from the wooded areas.

At around 6500 yards from the tips, this course can play longer than it appears on paper. This is a par 70 course with 3 par 5s and 5 par 3s. There are a few short par 4s, but plenty of opportunities to hit the driver.

The opening hole at this course is a devilish par 4, dead straight, but very long. Two straight and long shots are required to get to the putting surface. I think think the first is one of the most challenging openers around. Hole 2 is no picnic either, a par three stretching over 200 yards. The 9th, when tipped out, offers a tough tee shot with a very narrow landing area between a lake left and lots of large trees to the right.

Making the turn, players are met with a par 5 and par 4, both sharp dog-legs to the right. The 12th moves right to left up the hill and calls for a draw (for righties) to keep a drive in the fairway. The 14th hole is a brute at over 450 yards. The green is unseen from the tee, but you will hopefully get a glimpse of it after a good tee shot to the top of the rolling hill.

My favorite hole at Meadow Hills is the par 5 16th with a picturesque tee-shot. The hole curves gently around the trees lining the right side of the fairway. It is possible to get home in 2 with a good drive, but shots placed too far left will end up out of bounds. The tee shot on the par 3 17th may be longer than your second on the 16th, this bear of a hole stretches beyond 230 yards. The closing hole has a fun the shot over a lake to a nice wide fairway and a second shot uphill to a very small 2 tiered green. Good luck putting if you end up on the wrong portion of this green!

Meadow Hills always offers a great challenge and a change of pace from the newer links style courses that are more common in the area. This course may be old, but it is definitely worth your time!

Play if you want residents to heckle and curse at you

One resident on the 18 green decided it was fun to curse and heckle my foursome- which included 2 kids. He was clearly drunk and continued to harass us with profanity from our approach to putting. He even began talking to the kids. When I brought this up with the clubhouse(superintendent was not there), they explained they know him by name as he's a regular drunk- he was black out drunk a few nights previous. If this is the reputation the course is going for, then great; they made it happen- but I will not be supporting this course and strongly encourage kids to play somewhere else.

How is the course responsible for the behavior of an individual off the property of the course? Ridiculous review. Judge the neighborhood or Aurora PD for not doing anything but to blame the course for this man’s behavior is absurd.

Nothing wrong with this course at all...

My regular walking course is Meadow Hills in Aurora. I love this course for an early morning swing. The layout is fun, the greens differ from month to month with the speed, which I like and the people are always professional and friendly. The course itself used to be a country club back in the day and although public now, it's maintained well.
This is not a course that is going to stress you to the point of club bending, it's one for you and three pals to get together and enjoy the CO weather. You won't walk off thinking "what just happened", more like "that was better than last week" haha... Enjoy Meadow Hills, I haven't met someone that doesn't yet
