1st time playing this course.

Great condition

A little slow play when a single is playing behind 4somes. But, they did let me play through.

I did finish under 3 hrs by skipping 2 holes and playing them last.

Greens were slow with a different kind of grass than Arizona.

Not knowing course did cause problems when the ball ended up where it wasn’t to be.

Price was right for afternoon play. Thanks

First time playing course. When checking in staff not overtly friendly. Almost annoyed I booked with golf now it seemed. Greens had been punched so no expectations of making putts. Bunkers in general had firm sand. Layout was nothing special, with few dumb holes on front nine. Par 3 's where good except hole number 2. Long challenging par 5 holes for sure. Some target golf for sure, irons for position. If staying at golf resort at course would play either than that I wouldn't.

Pace was very slow. Had three groups ahead of us. Not sure what the issue was but sometimes it happens. Group behind us joined up for one home and we golfed 7 on 9th hole before turn. We were still waiting on groups in front. Marshall got mad at us. Not a big deal and we said we would split up again. However, he was very rude and disrespectful. We had nothing to do with the slow pace but he wouldn't even listen to us. Just kept shouting and being rude.

This was a great bargain. We had a daily special for the two of us. Beautiful, challenging course with marvelous views. The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars for course condition was due to all the rain which made a few sections wet. The restaurant at the Inn also had great food in a nice outdoor setting.

Staying at timeshare and had no idea this course would be so amazing!! Wish we had come here years ago!!!! So close to Glacier Park, it's the perfect location. Our condo was up to date with everything

you could ask for and then to top it off with an awesome golf course surrounded with beautiful mountain vistas!! Wow!!! Can't wait to return!!

I golfed here 2 days in a row (6/12 and 6/13) with my Dad and both days the weather was absolutely perfect. Greens were very fast but held approach shots very well. Fairways were in excellent condition also. As others have mentioned, if you hit an errant tee shot it's almost impossible to find your ball in the bushes.

I would highly recommend this course to any one looking for beauty and scenery.

Great job Meadow Lake crew and staff. I look forward to returning and playing golf there again.

I managed to play the last day of the golf season, the weather was fantastic, the course is in great shape, (compered to June when I played, 14 holes had winterkill.) well done to the ground crews.<br/> This is a fun and challenge course, have to play few times to knows the in and out of the course, greens are fast, some of them are hard to read, Is a great course to challenge your skill.
