Featured Golf Course Review:
Meadow Brook Club -- Great Dick Wilson design
Review by: Dick Dies I played this course in July 2005. It was in outstanding condition. There are three sets of "mens" tees, and the course ratings from 74.1/134 to 70.4/125 are accurate descriptions of its difficulty. The course opens gently with two relatively easy and straightfoward holes. The third hole is long and testing. The fourth is an excellent dogleg left that demands a strong and straight tee shot and an accurate second shot.The fifth is a very shot par four which doglegs left. The green is well bunkered and treacherous--especially if you hit past the hole. The sixth is a long par 3 with water on the right that can absorb balls hit right avoiding the trees on the left. Every hole is unique. If the course has a weakness in design it is the large # of doglegs left-#s 3,4,5,7,11,14,and 17.Only #s 8 (second shot), 15 and 18 go to the right. That said, it is a graet layout and a real test of skill. Bring you best putting game as most greens are huge ( in the 8,000 sq. ft. range)!

Eden Valley Golf Course -- good course for beginners
Review by: Joe the Hacker I play this course frequently because it is only 10 min from my home. However, the greens are not well kept and fairways tend to be longer than they should be even though they are cut frequently (my own observation of cutting). Nevertheless, on the front nine the fairways are wide and forgiving. The back nine has some challenging holes for the average player with several water hazards and doglegs. The ninth and 18th holes are long (> 500 yards) par 5 but straight and fun to play because they are wide open. 19th hole could use some renovation. Best time to play, in my opinion, is early (7 am or early) morning.
