Poor water drainage
Due to late night/early morning rain the course was in rough condition. However outside of conditions that are outside the course and staffs control the course played well.
Broke the mark
Best pace of play in a long time, finished the round in 2 hours and 55 minutes to break the 3 hour mark at this course. Was paired up with a very nice gentleman and we played well together. Course conditions were very good and the greens were running pretty fast with some very precarious pin placements for a nice challenging finish to each hole.
The Worst Round EVER!
9:45 tee time finally went off at 10:30 Three groups waiting on every hole. Course conditions were fair at best. Beginners playing on a Sunday morning. Wait Wait Wait every hole. Made the turn at 1:45 - 3 hours for the front nine. Went to Starter who said it was slow on the back they gave our group a 9 hole rain check... doubt I'll be back....
Short but fun
Teed off at 7:45AM in a three-some. Great pace of play. Finished by around 11:00AM. The course is in decent shape for a muni. I would definitely play here again.
Course not honoring tee times
Course will just accommodate golfers by bumping those that made prior reservations. I am not sure why they even use reservation system. Also, foursomes will sneak in between groups. Happened in 7th hope.
QUIT AFTER 13 HOLES. tOO MANY GOLFERS. WILL TRY NOT TO PLAY DURING HOLIDAYS.
Cold wet Christmas Eve round
It was a very cold and wet morning after the heavy rain on the 23rd. The course was cart path only with most fairways flooded or heavily soggy which made the conditions anything but desirable. Those conditions and being paired up with the worlds slowest walker made this almost a 5 hour round (that would have been closer to 3-1/2). With all of that said the greens were almost perfect and ran very fast like a dry summer day. The real highlight were those amazing breakfast burritos we got. Really hit the spot on that cold morning. Overall it was a good round but could have been better.
Best Muni In Orange County For The Price
Meadowlark is a course that exceeds your expectations when you think of a muni course. The greens are always in excellent condition. There is a defined border from the fairway and rough. Due to the course being in Southern California (drought), the rough is kept very low. The course is walk able, but do expect some holes where you will have to hike an incline. What brings this course to the top is the price. Within close proximity to the ocean, even on a hot day, the weather is still comfortable to play in. After a rain storm, the course drains pretty well. If there is any accumulation of water, it is in locations that shouldn't affect play. Bunkers are the exception. The only downfall is the Pace of Play. There are time where I would be able to finish the course in four hours. There are time when it is quite longer. There is good news though, the marshals are on top of informing and speeding up the slower players. When you sign for their e-mail list, they offer specials that cannot be beat in Orange County.
I've been going to Meadowlark for a bit over 2 years now, and it never disappoints. The greens and fairways are good enough for the price, and the layout of the course is great. The people are very friendly, and you can get a really cheap twilight round on the weekends. It's never overly crowded.
One complaint I have is that the course can get backed up on hole 7. For whatever reason, this intimidating par 3 seems to slow the pace of play down a bit. Piece of advice: on hole7, always club up. The wind swirls on that hole like Amen Corner at Augusta. It plays like 180 or so, which is usually a 6/7 iron for me. But this weekend, I took a 5 iron, hit it flush, and it still went in the water.
first and last probably lol
May be the last time i beat my son...he did well today....84 but somehow i pulled off an 83 but that don't matter. If he does win some day I believe I win too. so much fun getting out with your boy on days like this....priceless.
Nice course and layout. Course is short and wide open. Played on a Sunday and pace was slow. I wish the marshals would’ve punched the slow groups along. 60 bucks a bit steep for the value but I’d play again during the week when it may be cheaper and pace may be a bit faster.
