Meadowcreek Golf

Meadowcreek Golf Course is a cut above most other municipal golf courses, playing to par 70 over 6,050 yards. It can be toughened considerably by tournament pin placements on the unusually large greens. Sporting greens of Penncross bentgrass and Bermuda fairways, this beautiful tract is surrounded by panoramic views of central Albemarle County. Meadowcreek Golf Course is adorned with large, stately oak trees and flowering Dogwood and Cherry trees.
