Any golfer with a sense of history will fall in love with the Meadow Club, Alister MacKenzie's first design in North America. The private course - hidden high above the charming downtown of Fairfax by a winding, narrow road - has been restored by Mike DeVries, the Michigan architect who grew up playing MacKenzie's Crystal Downs Country Club in northern Michigan. It's too bad every golf course can't be this beautiful, this well cared for, this playable, this strategic. The game would never be in such dire straits. It's an easy walk, and there's a great variety of holes. The club bought acres of land surrounding the property and donated it to a land conservancy, so it will never be developed. My group played through nearly a dozen deer, some with large antler racks. The clubhouse, perched on a hill above the ninth and 18th greens, overlooks the entire course. As the sun dips below the surrounding hillsides, it's easy to find solitude in such a natural place.

Meadow Club is just magical. I was fortunate to play on a warm sunny day and the course was in superb condition. The layout is quirky, the greens are treacherous, the rough is short but tough and the bunkering is what you would expect at a McKenzie course.
