Well manicured course

We have always enjoyed playing Meadows for the past several years. The course is in great shape but a little hard to book times ever since COVID. A few amenities have fallen by the wayside as well, bag drop attendants, small towels on your carts, and lack of rangers on the course have slowed play lately. Nonetheless, this course is a gem to our community and we enjoying visiting.

Customer service

We loved the course. Conditions were terrific. However if you're spending $140 per round the on course customer service needs to improve. It was 95 degrees and we didn't see the beverage cart until hole 13. Not acceptable. There was also a very slow group in front of us...there was no ranger. I asked the cart girl where the ranger was and she said...I don't think they have one working today. What? A busy Saturday and there's no ranger? For one of the highest priced courses in the metro I would expect more. The course was fantastic. Too bad the entire experience wasn't.

beautiful course

I have been wanting to play this course for some time. I finally did play and wasn't disappointed. It is a very pretty course with water on many of the holes. The course was in very good shape for an early spring round. Greens were pretty fast but true. Bring your A game as some of the missed fairways are unforgiving!

Spring

T to green the course is very fun.
Fairways are the challenge. Select your T box’s with care.
Greens are a good size. Some are well protected. You won’t have trouble reading your putts.

Great facility

Value for money, worth the drive. Nice practice area. Free balls at driving range with real turf. Track is long, but fairways are accommodating. Would recommend.

Great Course

This course makes other courses look like a goat ranch. Bright white sand in the bunkers, you can stretch the course to over 7,000 yds if you are a good player and want a challenge, the carts are the best I've ever seen. Friendly staff, good course layout, very well manicured. What a good golf course should look like. I always enjoy coming back here.

Terrible greens

I've played the Meadows a few times this year and have been somewhat disappointed in the quality of the greens each time, but this latest visit was the worst. Greens were not only "fuzzy" and slow (needed to be cut) but the number of unrepaired divots and marks on the green made for guaranteed erratic ball roll on almost every putt. This isn't something I would even normally notice but it wa kks really bad. I probably repaired at least 3-4 divots on every green, and those were just in the areas where I was standing while.waitinf for others to putt.

This course is beautiful and otherwise excellent. It deserves better, more challenging (firmer) greens which are better cared for.

Food

We arrived for a 1218 tee time and they ran out of buns, so they had no burgers. The wraps were terrible, and the cart girl showed up on the back 9 for one hole. Not impressive.

Meadows @ Mystic Lake

Nice range not well marked for distance. Nice carts with chargers and GPS. Nicely groomed. Very nice greens that are challenging and undulating. Chipping areas and approaches around greens excellent. Level tee boxes. Greens a little beat up consistent with public course. Well placed bunkers with uniform sand that are well drained. While there is a lot to like not the least of which is the setting, there we significant negatives. The course seems over designed leading to tee box carry distances over hazards that are unnecessarily long, one par three is adjacent to a parking lot without protective fencing, and too many blind approach and second shots. Finally, on approach to 18, in front of approach water hazard, there are four or so drainage grates at least three feet round that can easily eat balls, as they did mine after flushing a beautiful five iron. Don’t get me wrong, it is a beautiful course just not a gem. To enjoy it, you have to play it often. A gem captures you at first tee and captivates you through eighteen. Would play again but there is a lot of great public golf in Twin Cities for this course to compete with.

Mystic Meadows

Very solid golf course. Fairway conditions were consistent and the rough was light to aid off center drives. Ample fairways allows for a golfer to plod their way around the tract. Greens were fast and aprons permitted putting around the green en lieu of the typical chip. Staff was very friendly and pace of play ways inside 4 hours. Almost worth the green fees., which were a bit steep for mid September.
