Your round at Meadow Acres begins with this 396 yard par 4. An accurate tee shot is a must as out-of-bounds lies down the left and trees to the right. A mid to long iron remains to reach the slightly upward sloping green. Par is a good score on this opening hole.

The second hole is a dog leg right par 5 measuring 420 yards. A fairway wood off the tee will reach the corner and set you up about 200 yards out from the generous green. Big hitters may choose to cut the corner, but beware of the out-of-bounds down the right side. This green is easily reachable in two, and offers an excellent birdie opportunity.

At 146 yards, the third hole is the more challenging of the two par 3's at Meadow Acres. Guarded by a bunker to the front-left and out-of-bounds behind, the green funnels toward the front-center. Hitting the green off the tee should make for an easy par.

The par 5 fourth offers a generous landing area off the tee with out-of-bounds down the left side. With the prevailing south wind, water down the right may come into play for big hitters. A long iron or fairway wood should get you close to this severely upward sloping green. Don't end up behind the green as a chip down the hill will be difficult to control.

The fifth hole, a par 4 measuring 316 yards, offers an opportunity at birdie if you can avoid the out-of-bounds to the left. Big hitters may be able to drive the green, but a fairway wood will often be enough to set up a clear approach to the green, guarded on the right by a large bunker.

The downward sloping par 3 sixth is a straightforward hole played into an upward sloping green. The only danger is overshooting the green when the pin is placed near the back. Hitting the green off the tee provides an excellent opportunity to pick up a stroke lost elsewhere.

The most prominent feature of the par 4 eighth is the large lake directly in front of the tee. Although the water rarely affects you off the tee, you may be in trouble if you fail to make solid contact. A short to mid iron is often all it takes to reach the long narrow green, making par a good score.

The final hole is a 403 yard par 4. With the clubhouse offering a picturesque background, an accurate tee shot is important as the fairway is relatively narrow and is bounded by trees. With the green placed above your position, you may want to grab an extra club for your approach shot. Many matches are won and lost on this hole, making it one of the best finishing holes in the area.
