Meadow Springs serves up a golfing challenge on most holes, from the 12th onwards each hole could grace the best that WA or Australia has to offer. It is an extremely well designed course that uses the terrain to maximise the enjoyment of the layout. The greens are well designed and plenty are well defended, however, many are well trodden and have plenty of pug marks.
The par three 8th is the best hole on the front nine, a decent carry over water is must to make a stepped green with well placed pin positions, short ends up wet and long is punished, there is a safe route down the right, but this will add a short or two to your tally.
The par 4 9th also has water in play this time on your left and right and a decent tee-shot is a must to give you a chance of getting on in two. But it is the back nine where this course comes into its own, after a pretty mundane 10th and 11th the course lights up with challenging hole time and time again.
The par three 16th is an awesome challenge and the up hill 17th well test the best of golfers, the massive green is stepped and many a golfer has come undone with a long put that ends up back at your feet.
Meadow Springs is well worth a visit and really does offer up some good golf with the real chance of a birdie for those brave enough to take on the back nine.
