Rolling Meadows Golf Club has a traditional layout that still manages to feel modern. The diverse mix of holes on the course will have golfers using every club in their bag. As its name implies, the course sprawls across rolling, grassy meadows. There are a few trees coming into play but overall the course is wide-open. The course is easy to walk, making it an excellent option for seniors. There are four ponds that come into play on several holes as well as a meandering stream that cuts through the back of the course. It is not the most challenging golf course, but players of all skill levels will find it to be an enjoyable round. Rolling Meadows Golf Club also boasts a friendly, casual atmosphere and affordable rates.

This course has got to be one of the most highly under-rated courses in the Central Ohio area. Easily the best bargain. Although some of the grass is burnt, the greens and tees and nearly perfect. I'd say far better than some courses charging 2-3x more than this one. Everything about this course is simple. Simple clubhouse/parking/access to golf carts/access to 1st and 10th tees.

There is one bad thing about this course. Be sure to buy lots of water. There isn't any provided on course, and there is no cart driving around looking to sell you any. Also, they make you spend $5 minimum to use a card for payment. Bring cash for that $2 bottle of water (or go fishing for change in your car like I did).

Rolling Meadows is a decent track that is usually in pretty good shape. I enjoy playing there because of the close proximity to my home and the reasonable pricing when I can find a hot deal. My biggest gripe about the course is the greens. They are been pretty bumpy and INCREDIBLY slow, which any decent golfer will tell you that it’s really hard to make puts in these conditions. Based on the cost of greens fees I would hope to see some type of improvement in the speed, but nothing has changed.

I'm in the area for a two year work assignment and this was my first time playing in about 2 years. I was pleasantly surprised by the great condition of the fairways and greens. A bit less challenging from the white tees that I played so I'll probably play the back tees next time. Staff was wonderful. I got the very last GolfNow available that day at 4:20PM. There was alot of league play going on so they started me on hole 5. I thank them for that because there was no one in front or back of me that I could see. Had a very good round. Sounds like the "sweet spot" for timing in the evening after work is about 6:00PM to avoid league play. Overall, very good experience and I would recommend to other players.

Wide open, easy course to play. What you see is what you get. Can’t beat $12+ fees for 18 and a cart. Course is in good shape. Great place to work on your game. I’ll be back.

Second time playing this track. It made a great impression on me and my friends the first time we played last year. This year wasn't any different. The fairways are in excellent condition and so are the greens. Looks like a hillbilly course when you roll up but it is a great place to play.

I played today and given all of the rain recently the course was obviously pretty wet and muddy but will be rounding into shape nicely if we can get some dry days. I mainly am writing this to advised that the course has all NEW carts, which has been a complaint for some reviewers. As always I will be back

Very straightforward course. Not very difficult for the better golfer, but that is just fine now and then. Most holes are pretty forgiving off the tee. If you are having driver issues you will likely love it here. Staff is great. Always very friendly.

Greens are usually excellent and pretty darn quick for a modest country course. Bunkers could be better, but that goes for just about every public course anymore. They are just so expensive to maintain.

Cost is quite reasonable. Clubhouse is very modest but it serves its purpose. Dogs, brats, sandwiches, beers, sodas and snacks. Some balls and gloves and a tv and a dozen or so tables.

Carts are hysterically bad. Just accept it. For the price paid you can’t have everything.

I Wish there were more places like this out there that could manage to stay in business.

We played this course once in 2014 and weren’t too terribly impressed. But I played it again on 10/7/17 for a nice round of fall golf. I must say the course was much improved. Even though the greens had been airerated, they were in good shape. The fairway was also comparable for other similarly priced courses in the region.

Pace of play was excellent and we (a 2-some) followed a 4-some with only minimal wait.

The course lives true to its name - some nice rolling meadows on what appears to have been farmland in the past. There is some water and some trees that will penalize and extremely errant shot.

We’ve decided after Saturday’s round that we will for sure be playing this course again when the deal and price is right.

This was the 3rd time playing this course this summer. Unfortunately the weather was the worst this outing. It was overcast the whole day, rained 14 out of 18 holes. But the rain was not horrible, just the annoying little drops. I still shot a decent round but today's conditions were not too favorable.. but I will be back again.

Course is in good shape! Green rolled about 8-9. But management has kept course in great shape through the heat wave. Just wish they would take the governors off the carts. So we could play a little faster out there. Good course for anyone's handicap who wants to get a round in under $35 bucks!
