  • Went here for a quick bite with 3 other couples. Not quite dinner time so they were able to seat all of us pretty quickly. Catherine got us drinks right away and gave us plenty of time to make our foo...  more »
  • While playing a round of golf at the Meadows is fun, their quick but complete menu and wonderful outside seating make it a "go to" for us just to watch the sunsets. Great sandwich choices and flatbrea...  more »
  • This is a beautiful course, but we were harassed by the golf rangers. The GPS in the cart said we were 13 minutes behind and the ranger came and told us we had to hurry because we were playing to slow...  more »
  • I think the Meadows is a hidden gem at the casino. We always go there to eat. The food and service are very good. It is a nice atmosphere overlooking the golf course. We had the NOLA shrimp appetizer and it is delicious.
  • I won't be back. I called around noon to make sure they would be open and have the Pittsburgh and Baltimore NFL game on, since it is on the NFL Network. They said yes. So, I decided I would go here to have dinner and watch the game. After having a few drinks and dinner the manager told me they were closing due to inclement weather. It was 39 degrees outside and lightly raining. Then my waitress told me the same thing. I looked around and only seen a few other people and commented 'Is it the weather or the fact there isn't enough people in here to stay open?' I would of had a little more respect had they not blamed it on the weather which was very mild for this time of year (December). I'm disappointed that I missed the second half of the football game. I won't be back.
  • Good place
  • 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.
