Embarrassing

Vikings Meadows is a mostly nondescript course. A decent layout with enough variety to keep it from being boring. That's where the positives (if you want to call it that) end.

Let's start with Hole 15. Walking up to the tee box....we were greeted with a sign saying "temporary green". This meant that instead of a 490 yard Par 5....the pin was placed about 250 yards, straight out in the middle of the fairway. Ok. The sad thing was when we got closer, it turns out that the "temporary green" wasn't a green at all. They had simply dug a shallow hole and put a pin down in the middle of the fairway. No treatment to the surrounding area....meaning....there was no green at all. Not to mention that the fairway grass was so poorly taken care of, that even if you wanted to attempt to putt, it was unlikely that the ground would allow reasonable condition to do so.

I am willing to forgive that complete lack of effort. What really ruined the round was the general lack of care given to the course all around. Particularly the rough. On many holes, despite it being a Sunday (one of the busier days of the week), the rough was so overgrown and thick, that it was difficult to even shoot out of it. The rough on most holes basically acted as a hazard, which is unforgivable.

Finally....since I booked online, I had to prepay. Well one of my friends got to the course early. Unbenounced to me, he was prompted to pay when he checked in. It wasn't until later that I found out that he payed for a round that I had already paid for. By this time we had already left.

In summary....I paid twice for what was probably the lousiest round of not only this year....but quite a few years now. Viking Meadows has a decent course hidden away somewhere, but management/ownership doesn't appear to care at all about maintaining it. Really sucks....because it is hard enough to get away for a round of golf. But to overpay for a disappointing experience like this is unforgivable. I don't know. Maybe they are closing up at the end of the year and that's why they've given up on trying.

I would like to amend my review. The course DID refund my friend's double payment. For that....I would up the rating to two stars. Still need to fix the course.

Violent Ranger

The ranger that works here screamed at my 9 year old son and threatened my teenager son with his dog. He then swung a golf club at my husband and circled around us until we made our way back to the clubhouse. No manager on site for all of it but it’s on video. Will never go back and recommend no one goes to this course!

18 holes

It’s been 20 years from the last time I played at Viking, you still need a strong back to withstand the extremely bumpy ride. Other than that it was a great round of relaxing golf and environment

Beautiful Evening for a round of golf

Beautiful evening for a round of golf. The course is attractive but it is VERY lumpy and the cart ride is like an amusement park ride. Wear a support bra. The course needs a steam roller to smooth it out. It was all about the get-together. I’d return for a bargain.

A good place to play

Being a Saturday, I expected a slow pace. The rangers did their best to keep it moving. The staff was very friendly and the course was well maintained. I look forward to playing here again.

Fun day, VERY rough fairways

The golf course is decent play, but some of the. Fairways are fo rough and bumpy that I actually strained my back. They really need to do something about that. Plus one of the holes is under construction and you get screwed out of playing a good hole. It’s been “under construction” for almost 2 years now.

Great Value

For most courses at this price you’re going to have shorter par three’s and most par fours too.
The group I was in had to get prodded by staff to get a move on, (we weren’t aware that we were causing issues, the holes are quite spread), which I think is indicative of a course that is trying to get everyone to have the best experience possible.
Two of my group of four were late (kill me) and the ranger, while obviously displeased, made jokes and comments instead of getting nasty or mean.
Oh, I also broke 100 for the first time here, couldn’t neglect to mention that :)
