A privately owned public course, Meadows Golf Club recently completed a $4 million renovation of its lush, long-spanning landscape. A par 70, the course features meticulously manicured fairways and greens, which are often hindered by doglegs, sand traps, water hazards, and trees that whisper major "disses" during crucial backswings. Other amenities include the club's on-site pro shop, café, bar, and grill. No matter which tee-time-specific Groupon you pick up, your motorized cart will be waiting. Meadows Golf Club also features year-round greens, open every day except for Christmas. In order to secure tee-times, Meadows Golf Club recommends that all guests phone ahead.

The pristine, recently renovated fairways at Meadows Golf Club snake around 12 ponds that vary in size and factor into play-making decisions on at least 14 holes. Water makes itself a prevalent threat to golf balls that are afraid to swim on the 9th and 18th holes, where larger ponds loom ominously to finish out the front and back nines. The 9th, a 240-yard uphill par 3, demands steely nerved shots over two ponds: one that stretches past the tee box to the player's center-right and another that runs along the left all the way to the green. On the par 4 18th, players again face down a tee shot over water, this time being forced to keep their drive to the right to avoid water along the length of the fairway, as well as packs of ravenous ball washers that roam the course in search of prey.
