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.

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!

You can't beat this for the last minute golfer price of $12 for 18 with a cart!!!

Like others have said, the carts are indeed terrible. Course fairways and greens were in great shape. There are a few spots that need proper draining implemented in order to prevent swamp like conditions. Great place to play at a good value. Course layout is quite bland. Very open and no tight fairways. I would play here again.

Course was in great condition considering the recent rain. A little soggy, but that was to be expected. Greens were in really good shape. Two of us played the front nine in 90 minutes, but got behind a group of 4 on the back nine which slowed pace of play to 150 minutes. Overall enjoyed a great day at the course.

I have played rolling meadows 3 times this year and have enjoyed each trip out. The course has been a bit soggy given the amount of rain we have been getting but it holds up well on the fairways and greens.

For the money it's hard to beat and I will keep coming out

Not very difficult, not very long, but it's a pleasant course out in the country that ususally has pretty nice conditions and very good greens and is priced very reasonably. I played here 5 or 6 times last season. The carts are crummy, but I don't go for the carts.

Obviously now, in late February things aren't great yet, but the greens have been cut and rolled and they really were quite nice. Pleasantly surprised.

45 degrees and breezy. It was literally me and three other singles on the entire course. Played two balls from various locations for some good practice. It Was a good afternoon but I was quite ready for the heater in the car by 5:30.
