You didn’t think I still had this picture, did you Rand? Just remember, I’ve still got that picture of you climbing up on a ladder after your wife told you not to, so you have to be nice to me. Ooops, hope she doesn’t read this!

4th Annual Ernest H. Philbrick Memorial Golf Tournament A Success

The 4th Annual Ernest H. Philbrick Memorial Golf Tournament was held at Hidden Meadows today. The temperature didn’t quite get up to the 97* that we had on Thursday, and as they would say in Scotland, there was a ‘wee bit of a breeze’ on the links today.

Thanks everyone for participating, and for supporting the Ernest H. Philbrick Memorial Scholarship fund. We look forward to having you here again next year. Continue reading

Carts On The Course Starting Saturday, May 20th

Friday course update:

We’re going to need one more day before we can let the carts out on the course. We’ve got some really soft areas on #1 fairway, #2 fairway and #9 fairway that there’s just not a good spot to route cart traffic. One more day of 60+ weather and some light breezes will make a lot of difference. So we will officially be letting carts on the course beginning Saturday, May 20th.

We are getting fairways and roughs caught up today. We were able to get the triplex out on the greens for the first time today. We’re also able to get the triplex out on the aprons and approaches this morning. So we’re headed the right direction.

We’ll continue with our spring green fee special today: $10 for 9-holes, $15 for all day. Thanks for your patience everyone.

The Weather Forecast For This Week Is Promising!

After yesterday’s 1.5 inches of rain, this officially qualifies as the toughest start to a golf season we’ve had since Rob and I bought the golf course in 2010.

We did get the fairways mowed with a small residential riding mower on Friday and Saturday, so we were able to get the grass knocked down before it got too wet to mow.

If the forecast holds up, we’ve got some 80 and 90 degree days coming up this week, which will dry this place out in a hurry. We’ll probably need to be watering greens by this weekend!

Thanks for bearing with us. We’ll have this place whipped into shape just as quickly as Mother Nature will allow. Looking forward to a great season.

Think golf. Think Hidden Meadows Golf Course!

Course Updates: Wednesday, May 10th

Here’s the latest update on the happenings here at Hidden Meadows Golf Course:

As everyone is painfully aware, this hasn’t been a stellar spring, except maybe for beavers and ducks (side contest: be the first to name the movie reference and we’ve got free golf balls for you). With temperatures well below seasonal average, rainfall being moderately above seasonal average, and not many sunny days, the course is pretty wet.

The weather and subsequent course conditions have pushed back the starting dates for our Monday Night Scramble, our Tuesday Morning Senior League, our Thursday Morning Women’s League and our Sunday Afternoon Couples League. As things stand right now, it looks like beginning the week of May 22nd we should be able to get everything started. Continue reading
