Clubhouse at Meridian Sun Golf Club

Clubhouse and Amenities Rating 4.80

The parking at Meridian Sun Golf Club is satisfactory, albeit lacking a bag drop service. Clubhouse service is adequate from the friendly staff, and carts are well-maintained, although the cart paths require some attention. Amenities are limited but they do have a small driving range and practice area with a putting green. There is a modest array of equipment and apparel at average prices. While the food and drink selection is also limited and priced at an average level, patrons can enjoy a full bar. Golf lessons are available.
