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.

Great starting course

Whether you are an experienced golfer or just a beginner this place can't be beaten in convenience or friendliness, this is a great place to go with family and friends. If to the contrary you are looking for serious golfing you are better off going elsewhere

Much Better

Played here back in May on the first day they allowed 4 to play together. My review was a C+ due to the conditions of the course - lots of over growth, aerated greens, several halfway done maintenance projects. But as I said in that review, the staff was limited, but the course was challenging due to water hazards and layout. Today, it was in very good shape; tall grasses have been cut, the greens were in excellent shape and didn’t give up anything. The work continues to open it up more with the removal of trees and several oaks along the course being canopied, especially along the back line. Mainly the 15, 16, and 5th holes. They still need to mark it better, and in this I mean which way to the next hole. If you haven’t played here before, you’d come off the first tee and likely got to the third hole tee box and miss the short par 3 hole 2, so please work on this. Also, some enforcement of fixing ball marks on the greens; I fixed several before putting, and this slows down pace of play. It’s been dry, so you get some extra bounce and roll, which, helps on some holes, but hurts on others. Overall rating this outing, A-. Looking forward to returning soon.

Owner is an A hole.

I’m brand new to golf and messed up by having my cart on the very front of the tee box by the red for a moment looking for a ball. My fault for not knowing the rules but The owner happened to see me and yell from about 50 yards away at me super mad. I said do you work here. He said I’m the owner. I said my bad and kept moving but it was very unprofessional. Witnesses told me he said some foul stuff I couldn’t even hear. Guy needs to fix his attitude. Shouldn’t treat customers like that. Especially when I’m so new to the game. The rest of the staff is great though. The course is pretty nice too.

Great course

Awesome course. Not the best, but recently they have changed management and the course has gotten much better. It literally gets better every single time I go. I know this course will one day be very buttoned up and clean

Tee times way too close together

My buddies and I had a 4:40 tee time and didn’t get out until 5:20. There was such a backup for every hole that we had to wait 10-15 min before teeing off. It took us well over 4 hours to only get 14 holes in.

Very surprised with this course!

No Golf courses opened in NYC, so I have to search on Long Island or NJ.
Booked the night before, about a 35 minute drive from UES.
Course is very well maintained, greens are in perfect shape and running quite fast for a public course.
Liked that a lot of tee shoots are elevated and you have the thrill of hitting that driver down the middle (sometimes it doesn’t go).
Covid rules in effect and 2 people were greeting golfers that were arriving and letting them know what to do or where to go (very good)
I walked the course and it is on the quite hilly, cart recommended if you are not on the athletic side.
I’ll be back for sure even after they open NYC courses.
