We love sharing our course knowledge with our readers on Tee It Up Grand Strand.  We have played all of our partner golf courses many times over and Meadowlands Golf Club is no exception.  This extremely fun Willard Byrd design is a very golfer friendly layout that provides as relaxed and enjoyable a round of golf as there is to be found along the Grand Strand.  Today we are specifically going to focus on the par 3s.  As always we will be talking from the perspective of the amateur golfer.  After all…that’s what we are!

The first par 3 on the course is the 150 yard 5th hole.  It is nice to get eased into the par 3s with a very straightforward hole.  With just a couple bunkers on the left side of the putting surface, it should be not problem getting a par here.  Pick the right club and take swing that puts the ball on the green and maybe even make birdie!

Next up is the 8th hole.  It is also a mid-length hole at 148 yards.  This is a much more intimidating shot of the tee though.  With water from the tee box all the way to the bunkers in front of the green, this tee shot will bring some nerves out in golfers for sure.  Remember to take enough club to carry the green, long is a safe bailout.  Short leads to a big number on this little hole.

It does not take long on the back nine to get to a par 3.  The 158 yard 11th hole awaits with a much easier tee shot.  There are two bunkers guarding both front right and left of the green and back left trap as well.  The green is fairly large so we have a nice target between the three sand traps.  A solid tee shot should allow us to walk away happy with a par at worst.  A good shot give us a run at birdie.

The par 3 15th is the shortest of the par 3s at just 125 yards.  We do have to carry some water and a sand trap to get to the green but with a short iron or even a wedge in hand it should be no problem.  A confident swing should provide a real chance at making a birdie on the final par 3 at Meadowlands.  There are sand traps surrounding the green so accuracy is important, but a good swing will get us home with no problem.  The 15th hole can be a real boost to start the final three holes heading into the clubhouse.  Take advantage!
