Rude staff

Played the course several times. Lady at the front desk is one of the rudest people I’ve ever encountered at a golf course. Makes you not even want to come back. The course is great and I’ll be back but there is no reason to be so unfriendly and unwelcoming.

Good Grief ! Take it easy on the sprinklers!

Nice enough course, but the areas around the front of greens were SO WET that everything plugged or died if it landed just short. Cart was really LOUD, to the point of being annoying. I've played two other courses at state parks in GA, and they were phenomenal. This one? Not so much. OK, but mildly disappointing. Seems like somebody left the sprinklers on too long.

Hole location

Seems like whenever the greens are fast, the holes are cut on top of ridges so a near miss becomes a 10 foot comeback putt. Frustrating.

Best Golf Course in the Southeast!

When you are down in Southwest Georgia don't miss a chance to play this course. The fairways and greens are always in the best shape around. I live in this area and have access to many Golf courses and Meadow Links is my absolute favorite. The friendly staff in the Pro Shop will make you feel that great southern hospitality. When you get there tell Bo I said hey!

Meadowlinks is top notch A+

Wonderful scenic course, great conditions and well kept greens. Staff can’t be beat, always on top of things and never had 1 issue all the years I’ve played here. I regularly drive 90 minutes to play the track and would play it weekly if closer to home. Give the pro shop gentlemen a raise, best in the business. Always professional and courteous.

A Nice Course

What a pleasant surprise, even though previous reviews indicated that it would be nice. An excellent layout that requires left/right ball movement on several holes. For winter play the greens were surprisingly well kept. Fairways are wide off the tee, although there are a good number of strategically placed fairway bunkers. The only thing that keeps this from being a five-star value corse is the condition of the bunkers. Well designed deep faced bunkers but definitely in need of work. For the cost of play, one of the best I’ve played. Highly recommend.

Meadow Links

This a a great course with a friendly staff. The links style course is fun to play and in most cases the pace of play is fast. Abundant wildlife can be spotted most days on the course.

Some greens under repair

Course overall is in very good shape. Greens have recently been worked on, aerated, etc..., so a little rough and very slow at the moment. However, they are far from unplayable and only a couple are spotty.

Fantastic course

Awesome course. Difficult to play blind because of the changing elevations and not really knowing what exists beyond a limited sight range. Great layout, interesting and challenging.

Great course.

We played this course on Hot Deals three days in one well. It was a little busy on Sunday just had some young beginners in front of us. We had a great time every time. Greens are really good which are hard to get used to, but we had a blast every time we played.

Always enjoy Meadow Links at Bagby

This is one of my favorite courses, even though it is over an hour away. It is so far from everywhere that I feel like I am away from the hustle and bustle. The layout is links style, and can be quite challenging if you miss fairways. I will always take the opportunity to visit Meadow Links.
