Course condition excellent. It is in such great condition I'd give it a 5 but: driving range irons only, too many holes tight blind fairways off the tee and when hitting in the fairway, parking is far... read more »
Well maintained course with a challenging layout. Great staff, and GPS on the carts that is state of the art. Honestly, the type of course that would benefit from a caddy system if that weren't so out... read more »
5 star course + casino = enough said.
For all of the rave reviews this course gets by the media, I was very unimpressed. The greens were badly damaged on most all the holes (not sure if it's from disease or winter damage.. hopefully disease since I played in late July), all of the low areas were saturated and drawing water, and the tee boxes were torn up and for the most part, not on level ground which is one of my biggest pet peeves. I took advantage of their super twilight and finished just as the sun was going down. $40 with cart is a very good price for this course. I'd never pay the $80 or whatever they charge during peak hours, however. To go along with the maintenance issues, many of which make it painfully obvious that this course was built on a swamp, the layout itself is very annoying. At least half of the non-par 3s had blind tee shots. There are also only a handful of holes out here that you can hit driver, which again is a huge pet peeve. Oh, and I almost forgot, NO ALCOHOL???? What kind of bunk golf course doesn't allow alcohol?? It's the same ridiculous policy as their casino, which is by far the worst money pit in the state. You can smoke up the place but you can't knock back a cold one.. what a disgrace. Positives: GPS on carts made the blind tee shots slightly more tolerable. The staff was very friendly. The pro shop was gorgeous and the carts were by far the best I've ever ridden in. Many of the holes are very cool after the tee shot - tough shots over water to island-like greens, long irons or hybrids to reachable par 5s, and short irons over massive greenside bunkers to elevated greens are frequent approaches. Overall, I was simply disappointed. I'd played a similar course - Legends - the weekend before and that was leaps and bounds better than anything Meadows could hope to be. A big part of the problem is probably the rich entitled pricks that play the place who don't appreciate the game enough to fix their ball marks or divots, contributing to the unacceptable condition of the greens and teeboxes. Combine that with a crappy layout and diseased/damaged greens, and the only word that comes to mind is overrated.
