Bob Mowery's Meadows
« on: May 28, 2019, 11:27:38 AM »
Hey y'all,

Planning to camp at Clinton Lake out near Lawrence soon and curious if anyone has played Bob Mowery's Meadows.  I've heard it's been redesigned and might be worth the stop.  I'll be playing Bloomington because it's right next to the campground, but didn't know if I should try and hit up Bob Mowery's as well.  Any advice would be appreciated!

I've played it a few times.  The course has been redesigned.  The new holes are fun.  They go up and down a valley with a creek at the bottom.  One fairway you do have to walk across the creek, without a bridge.  Normally you can use the stepping stones.  Haven't been out there for at least 2 months, but I know the Lawrence league has played it since then.

Has old Mach IIIs that used to be at Centennial (replaced single chain baskets).  New concrete pads are slowly going in but I do not think they are completed. 

The redesign was done by Hans Coleman.

I like it.

dgcoursereview has pictures of every hole along with a good map.

Thanks Rob.  I hear Bloomington has not been cut and likely won't be cut before this weekend either so hoping to have another option that's not too far.  If nothing else I guess we'll play Centennial...

As info, Longview is  under water.  You can't even get to the parking lot.

Yeah, we first booked a campsite at Perry...and then were notified that our reservation was being cancelled.  Haha. 
I ran into the mowing trouble at Clinton last year as well when we stayed there.  I love playing the course, but it sounds like only a volunteer is mowing it at this point and that's probably just a path to make the fairways walkable...the gal with corps of engineers made mention that they don't even have a mowing contract in place at this time.
