Greens in good shape
First time playing here this year , course in good shape. Fortunately played on a reasonably calm day as wind has a major impact on this course
Best you know how to putt
First time out and was surprised I hadn’t heard more about the course. Interesting layout with the front 9 being exposed and the back 9 treed. Greens were fast and in good shape. Staff were very accommodating
Go before it"s gone!
Sadly, unless the deal falls through, I was told by staff The Meadows will be ripped up for housing in 2 years! For a layout with no elevation and almost no trees(only holes 11, 12 and 16 have tree lined fairways), it is a well thought out track. The fairways are wide for the most part with very good use of water hazards and bunkers. There are mounds with long native grasses that will eat most errant shots. The fescue has finally matured to make the fairways stand out. Some of the fairway grass is sparse but they were aerating to try and fix it. The greens are large, undulating and as fast as you will find at a public course. The clubhouse is very basic but the staff were very friendly. I saw many fivesomes but other than one holding up a twosome of ladies (come on guys, let faster groups through) pace of play was good. We played in under four hours walking for $39CDN.
A new-ish championship course.
This is one of the newer courses in Winnipeg and has well-designed holes and greens. Many greens are elevated and well-protected by bunkers. The greens are large and tricky. Some of the holes are wide open, making this course a pleasure to unleash your driver. Some of the rough is deep and thick grass, so you will want to avoid those areas. This is one of the top public courses in Winnipeg.
