Meadows Golf Club of Blue Island Overview
Built in 1994 for $5.8 million, The Meadows Golf Club of Blue Island is a links-style 18-hole course that aims to provide value for your buck. The city of Blue Island owns this muni, which occupies the site of a former landfill -- just like its neighbor directly to the west, Fountain Hills Golf Club.
If you’re sick and tired of hitting shots into the trees, this may be the course for you. There’s not many of them on this course, save for the line of them occupying the outer border of the property. The 6,581 yard track is also minimally bunkered, and only has 3 ponds, if that’s your jam. Water isn’t a major consideration on the course. Par is 71, with four par-5’s and five par-3’s. The venue is generally flat, without major elevation changes to consider. The course rating is 70.7 and slope is 120.
The majority of space in the clubhouse is devoted to the restaurant and bar, which has standard pub food options. There’s also a room with slot machines, if you’re feeling lucky. The pro shop is tiny, with only the bare minimum golf essentials for sale. The practice facilities offer a grass tee driving range, one large practice green, and a practice bunker.
