Amazing Layout Terrible Course Conditions

First off the layout and design is amazing WaterfallI/Island was the courses that I played.... Oh but the conditions dandelions and weeds every where and general maintenance of the fairways very poor. I think for the prices that they charge they would put more detail and care in the course. I hope they step up the maintenance of the course because it is an a great layout and I like the staff.

Pace of play was very slow

Pace of play was very slow not sure what happened but as we teed off we had 8 players in front of us and would not pick up pace after Marshall had talked to players it normally takes 4 1/2 hrs to play but almost 6 hrs on a weekday afternoon it was ridiculous...
I know the starter/Marshall was also getting frustrated with players cuz they were just laughing at them and saying whatever..
it was only 2 of us and we play here a lot cuz it’s a home coarse for us

Come On Guys Do Better

Played this course again yesterday. Course was the same, but it was unbelievable how many people were congregating in large groups, players were riding 2 to a cart, and the whole place seems WAY too cavalier about COVID-19. It’s like they don’t care, they are just pumping players out still. As a business they should be ashamed of themselves.

Public Golf

First time playing. Lots of gimmicky holes. Rough conditions. Needs a lot of work. Lots of people standing around in groups (kind of upsetting with Covid-19 in the area).

Driving range and some practice facilities.

Had a good time with family.

Thank you for coming out and playing, we are glad you had a good time. We are working hard to get everything in great shape which will improve more when it gets warmer and the grass can start growing again. We are keeping a limit to how many can be in the clubhouse and doing our best to work with our guest to try and discourage hanging around the parking lot or at least to remember to keep that 6 foot distance. We want to keep everyone safe and still offer some fun exercise through this time . We are keeping everything sanitized constantly. If you have any more concerns please reach out to us, we are happy to get any suggestions that can help keep everyone safe.

A fun track

This is really a fun track to play with your friends. Very nice layout with ups and downs. It’s pretty open but challenging with very nice scenery. The holes are moderately to very challenging and the pace of play, on this day, was very good. Given the time of year the course is in pretty good shape but could definitely use some work. Overall it was fun, fun, fun.

Downhill Fast

Been playing this course sparingly over the past few years. Have never really enjoyed it, but this past round was horrendous. The greens are terrible. There are weird bare spots or weeds on a lot of them. They were not putting very smooth at all. A lot of the fringes are bare. Fairways were in decent shape, and the tees were hit or miss.

The course is very gimmicky, which I guess is what they market towards. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of poor golfers go there, because it took us almost 6 hours to play 18 holes. We were waiting 10 mins on every tee box. Felt like the starter wasn’t concerned about pace of play.

For new golfers: Greens are small and tough to hit. A lot of blind shots that if you don’t know the course, you will be in trouble.

My suggestion: Play somewhere else.

Fun

This is a very fun course to play great landscaping and some unique hole layouts. Included with the island 9 is a practice hole to warmup before keeping score. The par 6 is challenging but not impossible to par with strong 2nd and 3rd shots.

Lesson Learned

Course was in poor condition. Several holes closed with makeshift greens. For example, par 3 green was what looked to be a tee box and if your ball landed on it, it was counted as a birdie. Not a real green.

Will not go back.

Very Interesting and challenging

Played Waterfall and Longest courses. Course layout very good, with reward for staying in fairway. Greens were a little wet so not a lot of roll out and plenty of mark repair to do. Greens were a four of five with good sloping but thin in a few places. No warning signs for pond on Longest hole, so know there is one at the dog leg right. Reasonable Saturday pace of play, weather overcast and no beating sun, fortunately. Staff friendliness is a six of five!

Longest Hole

Home of the. Longest Hole a Par 6 over 800 yards is a very competitive hole and will definitely be challenged to most players.
Definitely one of the Best courses for the cost

Charm Factor Diminished But Still A Solid Play

Over the years the charm and uniqueness of Meadow Farms Golf Club has been reduced as I’m sure the course struggles with the upkeep of so many unique,high-maintenance features. While that makes the course less quirky, the layout itself still holds its own with plenty of diversity in the holes and plenty of shots to utilize to score well here.

The conditions were pretty good the day I played with the greens, fairways, bunkers, rough, and tee boxes all looking well. Signs of heavy traffic were the only detractor. They were spraying the greens with that bluish-green chemical that gets all over your ball and hands but doesn’t really have an impact on play.

The long 600+ yard par-6 is still the draw for me to this course; I love playing such a unique hole that really challenges you to make 4 good swings.

I make it up here about once a year and plan to come again soon.

Played the Island Green and Waterfall nine's. Both were in great shape. The course looks and plays nicely. There isn't enough drinking water on the course and yesterday was an extremely warm day. Overall experience was very good at the course.

Almost everything about the course was perfect. Only complaint is that there were no ball washers on the course. This was about my fourth time to play the course, and I will certainly come again.
