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.

Not bad, especially for the price...but needs some work

I’ve played here about 5 time this season. The course Plays ok but needs some work. Most tee boxes need work, mainly on the white tees where the majority of players hit from. Some Fairways also need some attention, bare spots and weeds. The greens are fine and play pretty well. A little rain makes them a tad slow so you just have to adjust to that. The price is fair and I think that’s what keeps people coming back. They are doing work and making improvements so that’s good to see.

Great Round

Played here this morning. It was BUSY. Pace wasn't slow. Starter did a good job of spacing out foursomes. Some spots on fairways are being replanted but are clearly marked and are visible from the tees (which incidentally are also being replanted). The course overall is in good condition. Greens are beautiful BUT people NEED to repair ball marks. NOT THE COURSES FAULT. This course has ALOT of work being done to it. But is still definitely PLAYABLE. Nice to see a public course being upgraded. Everyone here is SUPER friendly. Great COURSE for beginners. Narrow fairways BUT most holes are open off the fairways and rough is kept REASONABLY short.

Needs to be watered

Now I know why it’s easy to get a tee time , this was by far the worst golf course I’ve played in North Jersey , burnt out fairways , hornets on several holes , no clear directions for course layout . Aside from that , just another day in the links

No pace of play followed here. Bring your helmet because you’ll be dodging errant shots all day long. Bad wasp problem on multiple holes.

So so

Decent course. Layout was a bit confusing to navigate. Greens were fine but the fairways were very patchy. Staff was extremely nice and Cart girls came around almost every other hole which was best I seen from any local course. Overall I would give the course another shot.

Good course

I enjoy playing at meadow's. The management appear motivated to continue improving the course. The greens are in good shape, and the course has some fun holes to play.. The course maintenance workers are always working and are very friendly. I enjoy playing meadows, and today marks my third round. Getting a tee time is always a breeze.

slow round after slow round

Now i give the new owners credit for maintaining the course and doing their best at that. However if you read the majority of the bad reviews on here people will say the slow pace of play is what kills this course. That is why i am giving this place 2 stars. I am currently sitting on 12 and the hold up right now is ridiculous to say the least. You would think after seeing all these negative reviews about pace of play that management would do something. Like come on already. It’s been years of slow pace on this course. Do something about it. Get a marshall out here. 5+ hour rounds suck

Pace of play

My 4th or 5th time in the last month or so. Course is in good shape considering the heat wave, BUT the pace of play was horrid and people have begun not fixing their ball marks on the greens. The first few times this season have been great but today 5 plus hours when it’s 95 and humid is unacceptable. Some dude showed up on hole 10 with his like 5 year old brother and played with us. He must’ve come from the parking lot because he passed the older couple playing behind us. As I understand courses in the NE need to make as much money as possible during the summer but maybe we have to extend tee times a little further out. Also the Marshalls are useless and a waste of course money. They did NOTHING to help pace of play.

Decent course. Good for the price

Very Friendly and Honest staff. Lost my Oakley sunglasses playing and called the next day and got them back. THAT'S Honesty. I've been playing here every week since they opened this season and will continue to play here. Open course. Great for beginners. Fair greens and a good price. Plus there is a drink cart. Close to home. Tee off early = home in time for afternoon meetings.
