Meadows Golf Course in Lincoln Park offers a casual and enjoyable round for players of all skill levels. For more of a challenge, golfers can try the blue tees while the white and the red tees are more forgiving of errant shots. The course sprawls across mostly flat terrain but there are a few subtly elevated greens to contend with. The layout is situated amidst native wetlands, which come into play on many of the holes. The back nine is more challenging than the front, with the toughest hole being the par-5 13th. At 455 yards, it's not a long hole but there are two large fairway bunkers and an elevated green that is surrounded by even more sand. The best view on the golf course can also be enjoyed from the middle of the green on this hole.

Good value for the money, front nine has changed

Course in relatively good shape considering time of year. Lots of leaves however made finding your ball a challenge, evenin fairway on some holes.
Haven’t played there sine last year
and front nine has been changed around. Took a few minutes to figure out layout , holes for the most part, were conspicuously marked.
Will play again.

Still some work to do

Still re-constructing much of the course...but it's getting close to completion; better drainage and less trees/waste areas.

Greens fast. Fairways need some work. Nice layout.

Good Time

Course was in fair condition but you can see that management is attempting to make several investments into the course. I look forward to seeing the changes when I return next year. We played a 3:00pm tee time and were able to finish in 3.5 hours on a Sunday afternoon. Pace was great. Overall a good course for the money.

On the upswing

What a value for the money here in the NYC area. The course is undergoing some serious changes due to new ownership, but it is well on its way to being a great course. The tee boxes aren’t in perfect shape, but just tee it up and hit it and you won’t have a problem. The fairways are struggling due to lack of rain, but once again just roll the ball a bit and hit it. Greens are in good shape and overall the course is very playable and enjoyable. Would love to find a way to speed up play at number 7 (long par 3). Will be back

First Time Playing

First time playing here. First off the people working here we're absolutely friendly and courteous. I ended up playing by myself so of course I have to give 5 stars for pace of play. Some of the holes have changed so navigating that on my Garmin watch was a bit of a pain but the guy working there I spoke to on hole #2 knew exactly the correct holes and gave me the correct information. I'll definitely go back sometime soon.

Short course.... very tight.

This course is short and very tight. It has many holes that are too close together facing each other in opposite directions. This makes this course a slight dangerous environment. I feel like at any time you could be hit by a ball coming from any direction.

Poor overall conditions - New ownership upgrading

I have played this course over the years for the last 30 years or so. It went from a battered piece of garbage to a lush and luxurious country club type course and now back to a piece of garbage in need of work. Tee boxes looked like the rough and fairways had many bare spots and stones throughout as well as an overabundance of crabgrass. Owners are moving tee boxes and re-routing holes for a much more fluid round and it did appear as if they were trying to refurbish the course. Hopefully, in a few years it will be lush and luxurious again - but with that you'll most likely experience higher fees and slower play times

Depends

We had an 8am tee time. It was lightly raining till 9am so I assumed many backed out. We didn’t have anyone in front or behind us so we took our time. The greens were nice. The fairways were terrible. Poor drainage and lawn care. A lot of bare spots in the middle of the fairway and weedy grass as well. We only go if there is a Hot Deal. Just to be fair, it’s not a bad course. Just needs some better maintenance.

crab grass everywhere on fairways and tee boxes, no real true fairway/reward for hitting a fairway. the area has horrible water issues making the course almost impossible to be dry. greens would hold with proper spin but had a strange pace since some were completely soaked, and others were dried to sun exposure. staff was very friendly and no issues with them, but dont think the course is worth the cost. also like every other review, the yardages on the tee boxes are VERY inaccurate, you have to use a GPS app on your phone in order to play the course

Disappointing

The course is not very well maintained. Course was confusing - too many sign changes and out of sync yardage.

Food cart girl and pro shop guy were very friendly. Never saw the starter. I will not be back.
