We like to help golfers on Tee It Up Grand Strand. Today we talk about how to play the course at Meadowlands Golf Club from an amateur perspective. After all, that is what we are too and that is who plays the course most of the time. The par 5s at Meadowlands are fun and fair, but can be tough as well. They have a couple of fantastic par 3s as well. We will break down how to play the tee shots and discuss what to expect when on the putting surface.
From the white or Egret tees, as they are called at Meadowlands, golfers are treated to a very manageable 6,100 yards from which to play from. Only one of the par 4s is longer than 400 yards. No.4 reaches 408. All of the par 5s are under 500 yards, so they are manageable birdie opportunities for sure. The par 3s are short here, which should allow golfers to take shots at the flags and to go birdie hunting. We all know that hitting it close and making birdie on a par 3 is a great feeling. Meadowlands give us four chances at glory!
A big reason the Meadowlands is such a favorite of many local and visiting golfers is how it plays from the tee box. The wide welcoming fairways are not intimidating at all the the average golfers that tends to “spray the ball” off the tee. The fairways roll through some mounds and wind around trees and some streams and ponds but overall they are generous and that sets up for good approach shots.When hitting second shots into the greens on this Willard Byrd and David Johnson design, golfers need to pay attention to the pin location if they want a chance at birdie. The greens area good sized at Meadowlands and than means simply hitting the green does not necessarily mean a good look at birdie. There are bunkers with soft, white sand protecting many of the greens so club selection is important as well. Make sure to take enough club or the next shot will be from the beach!
Once on the putting surface golfers are treated to very nice conditions all the time. There is nothing tricky or fancy about the greens. They are fairly straight forward as far as reading breaks and how the putts will roll. All we need to do is find the line and putt the ball into the hole. Easy as that!
