Meadows Golf Course in Lincoln Park offers a casual and enjoyable round for players of all skill levels. For more of a challenge, golfers can try the blue tees while the white and the red tees are more forgiving of errant shots. The course sprawls across mostly flat terrain but there are a few subtly elevated greens to contend with. The layout is situated amidst native wetlands, which come into play on many of the holes. The back nine is more challenging than the front, with the toughest hole being the par-5 13th. At 455 yards, it's not a long hole but there are two large fairway bunkers and an elevated green that is surrounded by even more sand. The best view on the golf course can also be enjoyed from the middle of the green on this hole.

Pace of Play

Afternoon tee times will leave you waiting for a while. I had a tee time for 4:20 to try and squeeze in 18 and my group couldn’t start until almost 5:00 because they were so backed up. Never had this issue with a morning tee time here, but the afternoon is way overbooked and unorganized.

Course needs a lot of work

I have played golf outings on this course 2 times and know the course pretty well. I have to say the conditions of the course were not very good and the greens looked like they were just aerated so your putting game was a joke with all the holes on the green. The 7th hole looks like they have a water issue and the cart path was half under water. There were a lot of people playing and the back nine was very slow moving and I even saw one group in front of us that had 5 people playing and that should never happen on a busy day or ever. The fairways seem to be more narrow then I remembered but I hope they turn the course conditions around before the summer . Rating out a 5 I would give it. 2 being not so good

Course Needs Work

Greens must have recently been aerated. Couldn't putt on them. Fairways are in terrible shape. Many bare spots and not an enjoyable experience.

DO NOT USE PAYPAL

DO NOT PAY WITH PAYPAL!!! Despite paying at the course my paypal has multiple holds for the full reservations, two as of now one for a tee time cancelled way in advance and one for a round played and paid at the course. Paypal says that golf now needs to cancel it in there system and golf now is saying they have and both keep saying to call the other while I'm stuck in the middle out a couple foresomes of greensfees with no help from anyone.
