Fun course slow play

I enjoyed the course fun layout good greens. The only issue with this course is the pace of play with vet 3 hrs to play the 1st 9 holes . The course manager came out to try and help the past but it was a lost cause. I will play hear again when the weather is cooler and pace of play is better

Management needs to get their act together

Had a scheduled round booked on golf now for 1pm. At 1 pm golfers from a Thursday league were coming off 18 to play the front 9 as they had started that day on the back 9. The golfers suggested that a start on #10which I did. Apparently no other golfer had the 1 pm tee time so I went off on my own. After playing the back 9 , I was hoping to now play the front 9. To my dismay, there were 2 foursomes waiting to tee off. So with hole 10 open again I played the back nine a second time.
For the third time reviewing, my opinion is that a starter is needed. I enjoy the course, but too often there is confusion at the Ist tee.

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.
