Easy on and enjoyable

Once I book a tee time online it is always easy to get on the course and most times earlier than scheduled. I always enjoy this course. It is a little gem!

Great course

Starting with the friendly staff and ease of check in, I've been very pleased with my visits. Carts are always ready, clean and in great condition. The course is aesthetically beautiful and the design is great for a beginner like me.

Great Value & Experience

WTG Meadows! This was my first time playing there and was worried based on the price and am so excited that it exceeded my expectations and those of the group. Such a great value with course in great shape and variety of holes. The only negative was a few blind tee shots and I can live with that...especially if you are a better golfer than me. They offer a driving range, practice green with chipping and nicely priced drinks and food, too! Thanks for a great day and look forward to playing here again in the future.

A great day

was great over all, until some jackals hit in to us. A golfer hit into us while we were on the green and started arguing with us saying that we were slow it's called it takes patience but over all was a good day ..

Good value close to the city

Great little track close to the city. Pace of play was good. Greens were in good shape. Fairways a little patchy. All in all, a great value.

Excellent Course for the Money

It’s not one of the premier public golf courses around Chicago, but that’s partly due to the richness in public golf here in general. This course is one of the best bang for buck you are going to get, it’s a well maintained, slightly above average golf course that you can play with fast pace on a lucky day, for a low
price. I’ll be back.

Getting Out to Play!

All Staff Members were courteous and friendly at the Clubhouse. I hadn’t played the Course for a while so it was nice to get back out to play! Course was in great playing condition and aside from a brief shower, it was a great day of golf!!!
I will be back out again!!!

On Top of Each Other

The staff did not do a good job of spacing out golfers. We were backed up 4 groups at 1 point. Also, the course itself is all over the place. People are always on other fairways and you seemed to be losing balls which were hit in good spots. To be fair it was only $37 with a cart but I won't be returning as I'm not trying to spend another 6 hours for 18 holes.

Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With so many golfers looking to get out, we are working very hard to maintain social distancing while accommodating everyone who visits our course. We are doing everything we can to allow our guests the chance to complete their rounds and finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and thank you for playing The Meadows Golf Club of Blue Island. We hope to see you again soon.

So so

Course was in decent shape besides all the grass clippings. I lost several balls in the rough because there were so many huge patches of cut grass left over from the last mowing. Need some blowers!
