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)!

Cassadaga Lakes Country Club -- one hole lowers the rating
Review by: steve l. I have played cassadaga hundreds of times- but because of no.8 a par 3, I won;t go back. The hole is a tough uphill shot. Thats not the problem, its the constant condition of the green. The green has a severe slant and is cut so low, that it is IMPOSSIBLE to hold. Putting on it is like a minature golf course. You must rely on luck, not skill which stinks. The greens should be mowed higher, to at least make it fair . But for some reason, the management will not do it. Trust me I am not alone with this concern, I know people who have pulled out of cassadaga leagues because of no.8. Its too bad because the rest of the course is ok.
