Last week I decided to take my wonderful friend and lawyer Kevin Johnson out for a round of golf. When he said he had never played the Meadows at Mystic Lake, I called them up and booked a tee time right away. Wednesday also happened to be the first day of their fall “spin the wheel” promotion, so our rounds were a great deal too (although they replaced the old wooden wheel with a computerized version that just isn’t the same).
I’ve already written about the Meadows course this year, so I’ll just add that the new waterfall behind the seventh green is fully functional (see above) and they just aerated and top-dressed all of the greens. The wild flowers around the course were beautiful and we practically had the course to ourselves. We both played OK and had a wonderful lunch at the Meadows Grille after the round. I think the Grille is one of the best kept secrets in the whole complex – great food and great service.Originally published by DK on September 20, 2009 at 3:15 pm
