Hidden Meadows Golf Course
Welcome all to my first Hidden Meadows blog entry! Let me introduce myself to anyone who does not know me, I’m Chad Armell and I have been the superintendent here at Hidden Meadows for the past seven years. Periodically throughout this year I will be writing in this forum to keep you golfers informed of the ins and outs of the maintenance side of Hidden Meadows. I will give you the basics of the topics at hand and a few details of whats happening all while trying not to bore you too much!
We are offering free golf lessons beginning Wednesday, May 21st and Thursday, May 22nd. Classes begin at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. each day. Your only cost is for a large bucket of range balls ($6), and the lesson is free. Classes will run for four consecutive weeks. Class size is limited to eight people per class. For more information, or to sign up, please call the pro shop at 207.827.4779.
What a winter, eh? This past winter was one for the books, and the brutal weather left it’s mark on the golf course. We had severe ice damage to the greens on #5, #6, #7 and the putting green. As a result, there will be temporary greens on those three holes, through at least the first part of June on #5 and #7, and the latter part of June on #6.
We realize that playing on temporary greens isn’t a lot of fun, even if it’s only on three holes. So while we are repairing the damage and getting the greens back to the high standards you have come to expect at Hidden Meadows over the past couple of years, here are some promotions we have going:
Green Fee Specials
•$10 to play all day. Play as many holes as you want to play. Don’t want to carry your clubs? Pull carts are only an extra $3.
•$15 for 9-holes and a cart.
•$25 for 18-holes, a cart and a sleeve of TaylorMade Project ‘a’ golf balls (normally $7.99 per sleeve).
•All of our membership fees have remained at the same price as they were in 2013.
•For everyone who has signed up for a 2014 membership, for every month we are on the three temporary greens, you will receive a 10% credit towards your membership fees for 2015. The credit will be adjusted to 7.5% per month when we have two temporary greens, and adjusted to 5% per month when we are down to just one temporary green.
Thank you for bearing with us while we are repairing the golf course, and in the meantime, enjoy some inexpensive golf!
