Viking Meadows Golf Club - Region 2 - Metro
Reviewed by:  Tim Billett - Coon Rapids, MN. Tim shoots in the 80s.
Review Summary:  This is a course I've played multiple times. It is always in decent shape and you never have a problem getting on.
Conditions:  Conditions were just fine. The only complaint is the areas around the greens. The turf isn't consistant enough to really know how the ball will come out.
Scenery: Scenery is nice. There aren't any houses on the course.
Layout: The layout is fine. The holes go back and forth a little, but each hole has a different feel to it.
Services: The service is great. They don't seem to market the course a lot, so it's never busy. It's kind of a hidden gem.

Viking Meadows Golf Club - Region 2 - Metro
Reviewed by:  Larry Umphrey - Brooklyn Park, MN. Larry shoots in the 80's.
Review Summary:  A fair, straight ahead course with clear looks at the greens and some challenging holes. Holes 10-12 offer some of the more difficult golf you will find on a mid-range public course.
Conditions:  Good for Mid-April. Greens were fast, but kept up pretty well. Fairways were in good shape, considering the time of year.
Scenery:  Nice, lots of mature trees.
Layout: Fairly flat, and very walkable for those who wish to. Lots of 330-360 yard par 4's that offer birdie opportunities.
Services: Good and friendly.

Reviewed by:  Anthony Kuefler - Wyoming, MN. Anthony shoots in the 80's.
Review Summary:  This is a great public course that offers challenges for all different kinds of levels of players. It is by far one of the most challenging public courses available, and plays a lot harder than it seems.
Conditions:  Great, although their fairways need a little better help. But otherwise they are excellent. The greens are nice, and vary in speeds. Usually play medium fast to slow. Many trees and water hazards on holes, which offer a great challenge. Just keep it in the fairway, and you are good to go.
Scenery:  Very peaceful. They take care of their trees and have planted some new ones. Nice cut grass, and groomed bunkers.
Layout: In a meadow with a few hills. The course is laid out on an old farm.
Services: Great service. Friendly and outgoing staff that are sure to make your experience enjoyable.
