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.

Needs a trim

Greens were in decent shape, but they really need enforce fixing the ball marks on them. Like putting through a mine field. Bunkers were like cement! Send someone out to rake them in the AM. The fairways were in dire need of a trim, but it’s been so hot n dry that they probably haven’t grown much before today. Also, the tee boxes are a disgrace. Uneven and all chopped and chewed up from the last 2 weeks + of use. Like this course for the value and location, but come in guys. You’ve put in so much effort to fix the ponds on the 6 and 7th hole, other areas of the course, and general maintenance, are lacking.

Great value, course is developing well!

I was visiting the area for a wedding, and had some time. I got a reservation the night before; $40 total as a Senior. I read all the reviews, very conflicting. Some loved it, some had harsh things to say. I thought it was surprisingly good.

First, it is not a country club, and don't expect it to be. It obviously gets a lot of play. Second, it is not really a difficult course; good golfers would probably shoot 5-10 strokes better than their handicap.

But I enjoyed it. The course was full, yet we played in 4 hours and 15 minutes. Greens were consistent, on the slow side, but not ridiculously so. Yes, there were a number of unrepaired ball marks, but I didn't have one that interfered with my play...they were on the edges of the green. I didn't lose one ball in the rough, and while it was thick in parts, it was not THAT thick. I saw no garbage on the course as some reviews have intimated. Either I missed it, they cleaned it up, or it was never there.

You can see how much time and effort they are putting into it. While it will never be a CC, it will be even better a year from now.

As several others have said, the staff was unbelievably nice, friendly and accommodating.

As many public courses are, the holes are close together. You need to be aware of this as you play.

I am between a 3 and a 4 on rating, but to balance out those "1's" out there, I am giving it a four.

Thanks very much for a nice outing!

Course was dry but still cart path only. No ranger on the course to evaluate conditions. Greens in terrible shape, no ball marks repaired. Tee boxes are a mess. Only play here if can't get on anywhere else.

Needs lots of TLC

High rough, tough to find balls that are mishit. Litter and beer cans all over the place, even though there are trash cans at almost every tee box. The staff was very friendly and the cart girls are sweet and easy on the eyes. Sad that the track is not in good shape.

Good bang for the buck.

Nicel layout with enough challenges for an intermediate golfer.
Continued work and improvements in the course has made it better last 2-3 years we have been playing here.
Staff is always friendly and accommodating.
Bar is nice enough for a wind down drink and chips and talk..

Club House Staff

Played here twice at the crack of dawn and it was so peaceful. Mike the club house guy is the nicest man ever. So much class. Helped smooth out an issue with booking and was very understanding.

Course was under construction and being maintained but who cares. Are you really that bothered by that? If you’re that good evade the nice people cutting grass and making the course look and play a lot better.

Give this course a few more months and it’ll be prime.

Course design 4/5

MINOR ADJUSTMENTS

After two days of dry conditions the course was dripping wet? Rough was extremely to high with wet conditions. Shot an 84 but would have been better without grass sticking to my ball on the greens. However it’s a great layout. Keep up the good work.

Course had taken a turn for the worse since last month. Tee boxes all chewed up, many fairways have water damage and I have never seen so many ball marks/divots on any greens in my life. Guess no one cares who plays here…? Why not repair them.? For the price it’s just ok.
