Kauppila Breaks Course Record

Chris Kauppila fired a 3-under-par 68 on Monday, July 2nd during the Maine Junior Tour stop at Hidden Meadows Golf Course. His round broke the course record by one stroke, which was previously set by Connor Morey in May, 2016.

Kauppila started the day eagle-birdie, then after making bogies on #4 and #7, finished the front nine with a birdie 3 on the 9th hole, going out in 3-under-par 33.

Kauppila got it to 4-under-par after making birdie on #12, went birdie-bogey-birdie on #15 through #17, then finished with a par 4 on the last hole to set the record. His round included one eagle, five birdies, eight pars and four bogies.

Kauppila set the record playing the course as an 18-hole set-up, green tees for his front 9 (3177 yards) and the white tees for his back 9 (2891 yards). There has not been a course record posted for the senior tees (white-gold) or for the women’s tees (gold-red). Joe Perdue holds the course record for the men’s original layout with 66 (June, 2010). Stacey Creech holes the course record for the women’s original layout with 71 (June, 2015).

Congratulations Chris. Great round of golf. All of your hard work is beginning to pay off. Way to go!
