This course is in great shape for this time of year. Fairways are still fairly green and the greens while a little long and fairly slow are very consistant.

For those that might remember when golf was a shotmaker's game, then Meadowbrook Golf Course in Fort Worth fits your game. This course is not overly long, but placement of your shots is a key on almost every hole. The greens range between fairly flat to severe in a few cases. No blnd shots, but you better pay attention to the positioning of bunkers and hazards on your shots. As with all municiipal courses, the maintenance is decent, but not suprelative. The course gets a lot of play by people that have been around the game for awhile. This course is definitely worth the time!

Nice, challenging course. We have played there since childhood. The price is right too...but if you come with a foursome, get ready to let singles and twosomes go through. They don't pair em up. Also, some groups try to monopolize the couse and play like their hair is on fire so watch out...they will hit into you. And its NOT an isolated incident. One man in each cart and play as fast as they can. Too bad.

The golf course is in great shape. Fairway very nice. But they are letting the second cut grow. If your ball roll in it its hard to find, so beware. Green stii healing from when they punch it. I think 1 more week and it wii be perfect staff very nice and helpful.

You have to be able to move the ball, plenty of tight shots and there are some risk/rewards holes as well as blind shots. Tee boxes can bee better, more of an even surface, fairways are always in great shape and the greens are even better. No driving range but practice putting green is a great indication of what to expect, layout is fun and you will not get bored, holes are very different. Very little water and the bunkers are more of a target than hazards, they really are irrelevant here. Par 3s are short on average and you will be tempted to go for the green on the par 5s if you're able to catch one off the tee, the 13th being your best shot with the helping stadium-like surroundings. Treat #5, 8, 15 and 16 with respect off the tee as well as the approach, these holes can eat your lunch.

I've never seen a cart girl out there but then again it's a munie, kitchen can use the most improvement but food is not bad.

Overall, I can tell you that I keep coming here because it just feels right, keeps my decision making and mental game sharp.

Tee boxes were horrible and the sand traps were almost as bad. For last of April, the fairways should be plush and soft , but this is a cIty muni , so they arent going to fertilize , so you get what you pay for. Be prepared to roll the ball around in the fairways for a decent lie . The greens were hippity hoppity , not very good but like i said you get what you pay for . The green fees should be no more than $25-30 tops .

The course was maintained for the most part. The tee boxes and greens were pretty nice, but other than dead center of the fairways, there was some work to be desired. The sand was hard as a rock in most traps, but it had rained recently.

I liked the elevation changes and challenging green sizes. I think the $32 we paid was slightly more expensive than I am willing to shell out again though. I think this would be a deal at around $25 instead.

I played this course on an April afternoon and the course is currently in poor condition. The fairways, though mostly in good condition, are plagued with bald patches in low spots where standing water may have been present. The greens were very patchy and inconsistent. The greens may mature later in the year once they fill out but right now they are patchy and not putting very true.

Another thing was the pin placement and tee marker locations were obviously not placed by golfers. There were many tee boxes where if you played within the tee markers you'd be standing on uneven ground and in the rough (so I cheated a little bit). Also the pin placement on the par 3 hole 3 was near impossible to score on. The pin was placed about two feet from a false front down a sharp incline meaning even if a putt rolled two feet passed the hole meant the ball went down the hill (which two in my group did).

It's also worth mentioning that the golf course is located near a declining neighborhood in Fort Worth. During our round two kids rode bikes through the golf course. Definitely not something you see during your average round!

However through all of its nuances Meadowbrook offers a fairly decent course layout while still remaining friendly to beginners. Personally I think it'd be a fine course for >$25 but at it's current rates there are better courses in the area to get your money's worth.

Of course, for a city-run course and the price I paid, I have no room to complain. But just to clarify... The greens! The greens were HORRIBLE. I would have rather been putting on someone's driveway. Hard as a rock and covered with sand. So much so that you could see the line from just about any position on the green. But don't get excited, because if you give your putt any more than a whisper behind it, it will surely fly off the other side of the green.

And the carts are gas powered! C'mon man. I don't want to ride around the course on a lawn mower, and I certainly don't want to smell like it when I get home.

Other than that, the course has lots of elevation changes and has undulation that adds a bit of excitement to some of the holes.

My favorite part is how you get a 2"x2" square of a course map so you can see how the holes are laid out, which adds a nice challenge of trying to figure out which flagstick you're shooting at. The indicators at the tee box have some sort of hieroglyphics that don't really help you in any way. More than once I was confidently driving towards the wrong flag.

I wouldn't recommend this course to anyone that doesn't enjoy a good laugh or takes his game seriously in any capacity.
