Golf Course

“The Meadows is a Golf Digest four-and-a-half star facility that has been host to several notable tournaments.   Those include 9 NCAA National Championships and 24 MHSAA High School State Championships through 2016.

Playing as long as 7060 yards from the tips with a course/slope rating of 74.2/133, this links-style wonderland has a rotation of holes that will throw a little bit of everything at you.  With five sets of tees available, all skill levels with find a comfortable tee box to play from, but no matter where you start your holes from, you’ll have to manage your game masterfully to get to the finish with your round intact.   Wetlands and well-bunkered greens make clear thinking a priority---very appropriate given the course’s setting at a university and all.   Don’t worry about getting bored with your subsequent visits, either.   The conditions are always great and the variables the course throws at you makes every experience a unique one.” -GroupGolfer
