Great course! Fantastic shape, challenging layout, plus the big guys play here!
I played here and never forgot the place. It was $250 for a round, and I am glad I did it.
The course was beautiful, there were 4 sets of tee boxes, and the weather was hot!
Nice staff, great practice facilities, decent pro shop. If you have the money it is worth it if for nothing else but to say you played there.
Rolling Meadows is no Augusta, but it isn't a shabby place either. Very short with several par 4s under 220 yards, it is easy, but can be hard if you play it with your irons and leave the woods in the bag. Only one par 5, it is a disappointing place for people who think longer is better. However, if you want a place where you can practice your short game or work on your irons, I would recommend Rolling Meadows. The course is not kept in bad shape, and some of the par threes are interesting. I like the back to back par threes on 3 and 4. Both are over water, with #3 green being quite small. This course gets some bad words from alot of my golf friends, but I think they just look at what they shoot there and don't see the value. I play with irons only, and while they beat my score, I feel I get the better deal!
Upscale place in old city. Very extensive wine selection and a very peaceful setting. The food was excellent (the lobster ravioli was superb) in both presentation and taste. The service was very good. Upstairs the atmosphere is more intimate than downstairs where it is brighter and the tables are closer together.
The price is what you would expect to pay in that part of the city, and it is well worth it. Parking is cheap.
This is a great place when you have a party and need alot of food or paper plates and napkins and stuff. They have a good variety to choose from, and they have great prices. I would recommend going here if you are looking for chicken wings in bulk (frozen and uncooked) because the ones they have there are the bigger, meatier wing, not the smaller breaded kind.
Staff was very helpful and I like to browse the store when I am there.
I don't think you can beat the prices.
Suglias is your standard pizza parlor/italian eatery. Nothing stands out about the food and the prices are about the same as everyone else in the area. They do deliver, and they put out a coupon flyer each month with some good values, but I wouldn't say their food is exceptional at all. Their wings are half decent, but when you get them delivered, I have gotten them cold on more than one occasion.
The staff is nice in person, and their phone manners are polite, but without the coupon deals, I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.
It used to be that the Wynn Ann was where you went for breakfast and a MUST for fried haddock and mac n cheese on friday. But those days are gone. The quality of the food has changed, and the prices (especially the fish) have gone too high. The last time in there for breakfast, there was one server and she had way too much to do other than serve us. There was an abundance of flies and it seemed darker than I remember.
The food was so-so, and the bill was high, and it just wasn't what I remembered it to be in the past.
When this place was Annie's Restaurant, it was a great place to go for a meal and the local gossip. Once the current owners took over, it hasn't been the same. The quality of the food went downhill, the prices went up and the patrons changed. It seems run down now. It used to be a vibrant place with people talking across tables and at the bar. Now it seems like a soup kitchen.
Have gone to see a few bands play here. The location is tricky to get to if you haven't been there before, and in the winter time, if there is any snow on the ground beware because it is on the top of a steep hill.
The venue was okay, lots of parking and plenty of room inside. The bathrooms were pretty dirty, but what I noticed most was the lack of any real security. Several fights broke out and the one older gentleman at the door just looked the other way. Kinda scary for me. I expected to see bouncers and such escort the patrons out, but that didn't happen. We had to break things up ourselves.
Olde Homestead is one of my favorite courses. They have a nice 18 hole links layout with some nice elevation changes, and an equally nice 9 hole executive course. The courses are run in a very businesslike fashion. If you sign up 4 people and only 3 show up, you are paying for the foursome. Some people don't like this, but it is what it is. The course is challenging, and when the wind is blowing it can bring you to your knees. I like that they have a timing system in place where each tee box has a clock that is offset by the amount of time you are allowed per hole. I like this because you know on each tee if you are ahead of the pace or behind.
As mentioned, it is not cheap to play here. Being in the middle of essentially nowhere, most are surprised at the price to play.
The courses are kept in good shape. The staff is professional. The kitchen serves good food with an extensive menu. Not just burgers and dogs here.
I think it is worth the price to play here, and I think the views are great in the fall.
Love Cully's cheese steaks. They have a great blend of sauce and cheese and onions. I used to drive home from college in Wilkes-Barre once a month to go on a Cully's run!
Homemade bread, plenty of meat and cheese (not all lettuce filler) and a nice variety to choose from.
Get the cheese steak. It is by far the best in the county.
Prices are in the acceptable range. Nice staff.
