The Meadows - One of my favorite courses

I always love playing at The Meadows in Blue Island. The greens were very well manicured and smooth to putt. Sand traps had sand in them (as some courses still don't). Grass was cut in the rough to allow you to find errant shots easier. The course has its challenges so it is fun to play.

Fast play

My wife and I played in 3hrs. Threesome in front of us but playing fast. Greens were in good condition. I believe a couple had a little issue but overall good. Fairways were cut nice. Had a good time.

Cinco de Mayo Round

No starter so you guess when it’s your turn. Front 9 needed a good rough grass mowing. Still early in the year.

Good value.

Played for $28 with cart. Grass was cut. The greens have been recently irritated so that wasn’t great but the greens were mostly in good shape. Fairways were good. We had recent rain and they must have good drainage because no standing water. Enjoyed the course will play again.

Overpriced for a course in this condition. Have played multiple times and they used to charge much less for a round of golf than they do now. Not sure why they charge as much as they currently do considering the course is nothing all too special. Pace of play is usually pretty terrible, I never hit out of the sand traps because they are littered with rocks. Greens always have a ton of divots that are not repaired along with tee boxes. If they would drop their prices by $10-$15 I would golf there more often because I like the layout.

I’ve played this course twice now. Good course for a good price.. Challenging layout that will require you use every club in your bag. Great variety amongst the holes. They have long and short par 3’s/4’s. Good mix of water/sand in play on a number of holes.
