The fairways and greens are in excellent shape for this time of year. Take advantage of a course near city limits.

Long par 4's, but beat up greens and sand traps

Left work early to take advantage of the 2:52 pm Hot Deal - a real bargain. I hadn't played the course in several years, but was familiar with the layout. It's only a par 70 and we played the white tees at a little under 6,000 yds, but it plays to about 6,400 since it's a par 70. All of the front 9 par 4's are very long (over 400 yds), but the back is easier. Wide tree-lined fairways with some tough holes. Being close to the city, I'm sure this course gets a lot of play, but the greens were covered in ball marks and the bunker were either rock hard or full of foot prints. They need a ranger out there to teach some golf etiquette. We still had a good time, but I was disappointed in conditions.

Very friendly staff

The staff is very friendly and personal but they could use some Rangers out there and also they have mounds of mulch that have been there for a long time grown weeds out of them they should get rid of the Mounds of mulch would help the course greatly

Outing circus

As usual, the geniuses that run Fresh Meadows had a shotgun start for a charity outing occurring at the same time as other parties (twosomes, threesomes, foursomes) going off #1. It's not hard guys - why do you make it seem like rocket science?

Poor Conditions

Poor conditions all around from tee to green. Every green was spotty and bumpy. Fairways and tees were shaggy. Roughs looked like they are were partly cut and inconsistent. Bunkers had hardly any sand. Crush burger menu is below average for pricing.

He laughed and said he had been hearing that all week. Do not Golf here!! I am a 10 handicap & lost 6 balls not even 10 yards off fairway. No LYING!!!! Never going again.

Terrible course worse staff

I give it the lowest rating possible you could not pay me golf there again. I have been playing this course for many due to location and value but this was the first time this year the rough is higher than my ankles if you drive the ball 20 off the fairway you will be lucky to find your ball save you money. I wouldn’t give it any stars but for review to be posted you have to give it 1 star at least my true rating is no stars and that’s being generous

Save your money worst course ever

I have played this course for years mostly because of location and value but this was my first round there this year. The rough was so deep it covered my shoes ankle deep, if you miss the fairway at all it could take 10+ minutes to look for your ball and you probably won’t find it. Then when I mentioned it to the cashier that the rough was horrible he laughed and said he heard that, WOW how about cutting the rough and the fairway was crap also . SAVE YOUR MONEY. You couldn’t pay me to golf there again

I will never be back

Cheap, fine, SLOW

Might have been the time of day (5 PM tee) but this course was incredibly slow. Maybe the slowest play I've seen. There were at least two 6-somes running around.

The relaxed environment was kinda nice too, but overall just made the whole thing too slow. We were hoping to get 15 holes in before dark, but we only got 9.

Course was fine, wide open. Grass ok, but greens really heavily airated.

Disgusting Restrooms and Club house

Restrooms need remolding, only one toilet works in women’s restroom and filthy. Clubhouse floors are dirty and need replacing. Everything is filthy and I didn’t feel that food was safe to eat.

Course is good.

pin position is everything!

I have shot sub 80 rounds when the pin positions were not diabolical. Yesterday was quite a bit different!. Add to this strong winds and suffice it to say we had problems. Que sera, sera.

Great course...

My brother used to work here as assistant manager, I went to see him here but never got the chance to play. I love the layout of this course. My friends and I decided to play here in memory of my bro Jason. Brings back sad memories when I went in the clubhouse but all turn well when staff said good things about my bro. Enjoyed every minute of my time playing.

Save your money

Over priced in my opinion. Horrible greens with nasty duffs that look like they weren't repaired from last year. One hole had two holes ....I'd assume from pin movement old hole wasn't filled in. Pro Shop / bar looks horrible and about to fall apart. Cart manager is extremely rude.

Fresh meadow Golf course

The course could be really nice if it was maintained better. I used to really enjoy playing this course but it is far to expensive for the quality of the course. This was my first time playing here in over a year and a half and will probably not be back for a long time. On a more positive note the staff is very friendly and the course has potential to be decent.

Basic golf

Basic golf describes this course on a good day. Unfortunately, this was not one of those good days.

Course is really beat up from the season, and the fact that recent green aeration has not healed did not help. Greens were really beat up and fairways shaggy. On one par 5, there is a huge mound of soil and rocks where a bunker should be (or was?).

Management gave us the internet rate as a walk up, which was decent. This was a round planned around socialization so course served the purpose, but don't plan a serious round here until conditions improve.
