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.

Booked a tee time at 2:50 on a beautiful Wednesday in May.

Every tee time from 2pm on was totally available online, which is why we chose to play here..... Yet the guy behind the counter told the 2 people in front of me "tee of whenever you want" and seemed to be doing that all afternoon.

The front 9 was very backed up considering the open tee times that were still available..... but the back 9 was HORRIBLE. At one point there were 4 foursomes waiting to tee off on 10 because the counter people were telling groups to tee off on 10 just because the front 9 was backed-up.

Halfway decent course, but absolutely atrocious time management.

Would never play again regardless of the cost.

They had an outing booked for 11 am on a Saturday!! Shotgun start, but still, with an 11:30 tee time it was agonizing. They didn't have enough carts, but we had booked on GolfNow and already paid for a cart. They couldn't give us a credit, so we had to wait for a cart to become available. No where did it warn me in advance on GolfNow that we would be behind and outing. In all it took 6 solid hours to play the round. Waited on EVERY SHOT! Terrible.

I’ve played this course many times before with minimal issues. Yesterday was the first nice day of the season and they took advantage of that by overbooking and understaffing. we had a 2pm tee time and teed off at 225, followed by a wait at every hole. As far as we could tell, it wasn’t the fault of any groups ahead of us, but rather overbooking. We left the course at 735pm after playing the 17th hole in the dark.

Day almost ended before it started when I Arrived and found out they only take cash. NO Credit Cards at all. Would be nice if they let you know about this on their website. I barely had enough cash on me to cover the cost.

Then despite the fact that I had a reservation, I was told to go to the back 9 because a large group just showed up and I wouldn't be able to get on at #1, but by the time I finished the back, the front should be clear.

I finished the back and got to #1, and there were 3 foursomes at the tee box waiting to start. I ended up playing the back 9 again because it was still pretty clear.

There was no order here. I don't know if they were just so disorganized or if the staff just didn't care about what was going on. No regard at all for tee times.

The course itself was in good enough condition for this time of year. But I was so annoyed with what else was going on that it ruined the round. I wanted to play 18 holes, not the same 9 holes twice.

I would not come back to this course again.

Not crowded at all when we started playing at around 9am! Very challenging course due to its narrow fairway. Have played here during the summer months and the place is ok. It has a lot of potential to be at the top!

The place got busier when we got to the 10th hole.

For the price that we paid.....it’s worth it!!!

Pace of play was horrendous. Ended up playing the front nine twice because waiting for two groups at each of 7, 8 and 9 was nuts and not getting any better.

Course is in ATROCIOUS SHAPE. Greens are a mess, fairways are a mess, tee boxes are so so.

I should have go to a range instead.
