Nice Municipal Course

The course was in decent condition. The fairways were bad to good. However, the greens were fast and consistant as well as being in good shape.. If your looking for a nice muni to play, The Meadows is for you.

Perfect weather
Walked

Greens, fairways (though patchy in some spots), and bunkers were all in good shape. The tee boxes were a bit scruffy.

I was the first one off the tee, so no complaints about pace... though that has been an issue I've experienced in the past here.

Pace of play......

POOR pace of play for the 2nd time in 2 rounds of 18 hole golf at this facility.....they need a person at the 1st tee to regulate.....tee times aren't held accountable so there is ALWAYS AT LEAST A 10 WAIT AT EACH HOLE.....!!!!!

Not worth the $$

Poor shape, high rough eaten up grass w weed filled fairways. Could be a fun track, but not worth $43, plays more like a $20-25 per round course (cart included).

Wet weather

Didn't play

They said the course was too wet for carts. I have bad feet from my 24yrs in the military and unable to really walk a course. If I do, I pay a hefty price the next day. I was willing to do so, just to get out with a pull cart, but they didn't have those to rent out as well. I lost out on some money booking it thru GolfNow, Decided to drive about 30 minutes to Lost Marsh and play there instead. Better course, my opinion. Marks and rating don't really reflect this course, but something to put out there, that's all.

Fun Course

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this course but I thought it looked intriguing and I was right. The course doesn’t play too hard but it throws in enough obstacles to make you focus.

The course is full of dog legs, blind shots, tricky sand traps, thick rough placed strategically, and lots of natural hazards. These all ended up giving you a good experience and really not knowing what to expect one hole to another. The par 3’s were all difficult, mix in some long par 4’s and really long par 5’s and you have a good afternoon of golf.

I recommend the blue tees otherwise things get too easy and the tee boxes were a bit chewed up. The worst part was the pace of play, the ranger was no where to be found and there was a huge bottleneck for 14 holes which really impacted things for me.
