Clubhouse and Amenities – Rating 5.80

The clubhouse at Hawk Meadows Golf club Is high quality in about every way. Located off of East Marr Road the parking is good and there is a self-serve bag drop available. There is a limited selection of golf course type food, but a wide selection of beers, seltzers, and soda with also a full bar. Apparel selection is limited with average pricing, but they have a bit more than most to offer in way of equipment, more than just balls, gloves etc. They also carry some golf bags and other items all at average pricing. The carts and cart paths are average, but the service is well above average with their friendly staff. There are practice facilities available.
