The golf season is turning out to be a nice one (knock on wood), and we wanted to let you know about some of the upcoming events at Hidden Meadows Golf Course.
On Friday, July 8th, we have the annual Hidden Meadows 2-Person Women’s Scramble. It starts at 9 a.m. and is $50 per team ($25 per player). Minimum of 6 tee shots per person, the tournament is 18-holes and will be played from the gold/red tee combination. The entry fee includes the tournament entry, green fees, lunch, prizes, flag events and a special event. On-course events include closest-to-the-pin on the par 3’s and a long drive competition.
On Saturday, July 9th, we have a fundraiser for the Old Town High School golf team. It’s a 4-person scramble and starts at 8 a.m. The entry fee is $240 per team ($60 per player) and includes green fees, cart, range balls, lunch, flag events and lots of prizes. There will be closest-to-the-pin and long drive competitions on the course, as well as a putting contest and chipping contest. Proceeds from the tournament will be used for the Old Town High School golf program and the Ed Perdue Memorial Golf Scholarship.
On Sunday, July 24th, we are having a 9-hole mixie. This is a mixed team event consisting of one male and one female on each team, and will be a Chapman format. Teammates both tee off and then switch balls, Player A plays Player B’s drive, and vice-versa. After playing the second shots, the best ball is selected and an alternate shot format is played until the ball is holed, with the player whose second shot was not selected hitting the teams third stroke. We’ll have closest-to-the-pin on both of the par 3’s. Men 64-younger will play from the white tees, men 65-older will play from the gold tees, women will play from the red tees.
We’ll have a potluck dinner following play. The pro shop will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, and will provide iced tea. Players are providing their choice of a side dish, salad or dessert. The entry fee is $20 per team for members, $40 per team for non-members, and starts at 3 p.m.

The youngest player in the group will determine which division the team is in. Minimum of 6 tee shots per person, the tournament is 18-holes. Men 50-59 will play the green/white tee combination, men 60-and older will play the white/gold tee combination, and women will play the gold/red tee combination.
