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)!

Columbia Golf & Country Club -- Short but challenging
Review by: LR CG&CC is a challenging course (slope 133) not because of its length (only a bit over 6,200 yards from the back tees) but because it is tight requiring accurate tee shots. In addition, the greens are small, fast and undulating so you need to hit precise approach shots and be a solid putter. In fact, this course is one where the "golfer" as opposed to the "big hitter" can shine and let the big hitters "reload".
