Golf is a game that attracts people from all walks of life. It seems no matter who you are or what you do, golf can have a way of captivating you – if you let it.
And once bitten by the golf bug, normally rational people seem to go to no end to get their golf fix, and along the way, to try and find the “Secret” to improving their game. Continue reading

Several years ago when I was still living in the Pacific Northwest, I used to write a column for a local sports paper. I wrote this article when my grandmother passed away in 2000, and came across it recently when I was unpacking some boxes. In honor of my grandfather’s birthday today (February 24th), I’d like to share it with everyone. Continue reading

We have had a lot of inquiries from members and non-members, wanting to form a weekly league at Hidden Meadows GC. So we are putting together a Business League, which will begin play every Wednesday afternoon beginning in May, 2015.
The league will consist of up to eight teams. Teams will consist of five to eight players, with four players participating per team each week. Teams will play head-to-head each week in a double round-robin format. The winning team from the first round-robin will play against the winning team from the second round-robin for the league championship.
The format will be stroke play. Handicaps will be used, and will be based on league scores. There will be five possible points available each week. The four players for each team will play head-to-head for one point apiece. The fifth point will go to the team with the lowest net score. Half points will be awarded for ties.
Each team will have a sponsor. Sponsor fees are $50. League fees are $25 per player. Non-members will pay a league green fee of $10 each week. Carts will be available for this league for $5 per player. Sponsor and league fees will be used for an end-of-the-league banquet, prizes and pre-season fun day.
Players can put together their own teams, and get their own sponsors. We will also have several people looking to join teams, so if you are in need of a player, we will provide you with a list of people to contact. Additionally, if you have a team but don’t have a team sponsor, we will help you with that as well.
Anybody interested in playing can contact the Pro Shop at 207.827.4779, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be having our first organizational meeting on Saturday, March 7th. Looking forward to hearing from everyone!
