This par 69, 5400-yard course challenges the most seasoned of golfers, while the novice can certainly learn a thing or two. The gently rolling fairways and greens have been slowly carved and created as well, since the course was built in the early 1920s. The Hope River borders Meadowlands on the east side of the course that is populated with mature fir, cottonwood and maple trees. It’s worth the drive out from the city to play in such a serene and quiet country setting. Meadowlands offers an attractive membership package that allows advance bookings, BCGA handicapping, men and ladies club play, and tournaments with other courses.
Meadowlands Golf & Country Club boasts a modern clubhouse with great views overlooking the 18th green. You can also look out at stunning views of the mountains and fairways. There’s a warm and inviting lounge and restaurant in the multi-level building, serving home-cooked style cuisine. It’s a good place to relax after your game and discuss the finer points you made – or didn’t make – out on the course. A banquet facility on the upper floor includes an inviting patio with barbecue facilities. This is a good spot for tournament groups to celebrate a fun day out of the office.
Meadowlands has a fully stocked pro shop offering everything you’ll need for your game. Golfers are required to dress appropriately – golf shoes or flat soled runners, golf shirts and long shorts or pants. Situated 45 minutes from the Port Mann Bridge, the course offers just enough distance from the city to entice corporate tournament groups who want to get away from the city for a day. Enjoyment for all players is guaranteed – a tough enough challenge for regular golfers but forgiving for the novice. Fairways are wide, there’s one water hole and all holes are of medium length. After the tournament, up to 130 people can be served in the banquet facility, inside or outdoors.
