North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity is one of 33 Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Oregon, and it constructs decent, affordable homes for selected families in need. NWV Habitat builds homes through help from private donations and volunteer labor. The partner families who move into Habitat homes contribute 500 hours of volunteer labor, known as sweat equity, and make modest monthly mortgage payments with zero interest. In the last 25 years, NWV Habitat has constructed 37 homes for local families.

Built on a former dairy farm in 1969, the executive course at Meadowlawn incorporates a compact game of nine holes into residential Arcadia. Four par 3 holes help players develop their short game amid hazards such as a creek, lake, and sand bunkers newly renovated with tiny camels and to-scale mirages. The course also features five par 4s for diverse play while still maintaining a scaled-down layout that ensures a quick round, allowing players to get in enough play. After rounds, the onsite Upper Deck Grill refuels and rejuvenates golfers with a menu of salads, sandwiches, and grill fare.
