The last few summers I’ve taken a summer membership at the Meadowood Golf and Tennis Clu in Fort Pierce, Florida. I could not be happier…not only with the course, but with the people who work there.

First, there are the cart-men

  • Jim
  • Bernie
  • John
  • and Bill

All who make the transition from the parking lot to the golf course a breeze. In the pro shop there’s Travis – the head golf Pro PGA professional, Terry – Golf Professional PGA life member (and my golf instructor), Jeremy – also a golf professional and Branden – yes, another pro. These pro’s are extremely knowledgable and handle all of your equipment, lesson and tee time needs.

Speaking of tee-times, a summer membership means that I deal with less traffic and easier to get tee-times as well.

Meadowood offers a championship course (this was Sam Snead’s home turf. From the Costco sized practice area, the large driving range, sand and fairway bunkers, coupled with a huge chipping and putting area, this club has EVERYTHING the golfer needs.

I have found the course to be a challenging yet fair test for golfers of every level. Low handicappers play the long tee’s and hacker’s like me play upfront and have a challenge and great fun.

My summer membership includes

  • Unlimited Range Balls
  • 7-day Advance Tee Times
  • Pool
  • Tennis Courts
  • a Fitness Center
  • Full-Service Bar and Dining
  • 10% Discount in the Pro Shop
  • 9 holes $13
  • 18 holes $20

The cost for all of this? $250 for 6 months (May 1st – October 31st).  They also offer a $1200 summer membership with no cart fees as well.

It may be the beginning of August, but there is still plenty of time to get your money’s worth at a great club.
