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)!

Colonial Springs Golf Course - Pines/Valley Course -- Good Play
Review by: Rob Colonial Springs is a nicely maintained course with a lot of charachter. It can pose a difficult time to the average golfer if played off the tips. I found the gold tees (the tips) to be a long course. However, there are two other tees available to play from for men that can cut down on the length. The tees, fairways, and greens are well maintained. I would have thought that getting out as a walk-on would not be a problem with three nines, but as they say, you better get a teetime. This club has a great practice facility boasting tightly mown grass slots at the driving range, a chipping green, and a large putting green. I saw no bunker to practice from, but the rough around the green will challange you. This is true on the course as well. The staff is large and treat you like a member of a country club. The clubhouse is large in size giving you a country club feel. The only downside of the clubhouse is the grill, which is a bit pricy. I thought the greensfees are expensive too, but you do get an overall good experience for your money.
