New Tee Construction

Our original plan was to build a new women’s tee on #2 and on #9, along with a new senior tee on #5. While we were doing this, we decided to enlarge the new white tee on #7 and #8, as well as add a new green tee on #7. Continue reading

We are expanding the competition this year to include both Gross and Net winners within each division. And as in the past, anyone can play in the ‘Open’ division. We will also have a Senior division (age 62-older), a Women’s division and a Junior division (age 18-younger).

Everything is up for grabs this year as none of the 2016 champions will be here to defend their titles. 3-time winner Cole Daniel will be headed off to school, Alan Hussey is in Florida recovering from knee surgery, and his wife Maggie, our women’s champion, is in Florida helping him recover.

You can sign up in the pro shop or call the clubhouse at 827-4779.

Hidden Meadows has several leagues for your playing and social enjoyment. The Monday Night Scramble, the Tuesday Morning Seniors, the Thursday Morning Ladies and the Sunday Afternoon Couples. It’s a great way to get out for some relaxing competition and an opportunity to make new golf friends.

Getting ready for the Tuesday Morning Senior League to begin.

Hidden Meadows puts on several tournaments every season: The Annual Member/Guest, the Hidden Meadows 2-Person Senior Scramble, the Hidden Meadows 2-Person Women’s Scramble, the Hidden Meadows Match Play, the Club Championship, the Big Cup Scramble and the Orange Ball 5-Person Fall Scramble. We also host several annual fundraiser scrambles that are popular and a lot of fun to play in, while raising money for some great local organizations.

Hidden Meadows is a great place to hold a fundraising event. We help you every step of the way to make your tournament a success.

Hidden Meadows has one of the largest selections of merchandise that you will find at any local golf course. We carry Mizuno, Titleist, Callaway, Cleveland, Srixon and Wilson, and offer everything you would expect to find in a well-stocked pro shop: Drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, iron sets, wedges, putters, golf balls, gloves, hats, apparel and more.

If you are looking to improve your game or get fitted for a new set of clubs, award-winning PGA Professional Joe Perdue offers private and group lessons, and will tailor a lesson plan to help you reach your goals. And look no further if it’s time to replace your clubs. Perdue is a past recipient of Mizuno’s National Club Fitter of the Year award, and is consistently recognized as a Mizuno Top 100 Club Fitter.

PGA Professional Joe Perdue has been recognized by Mizuno and Titleist for his clubfitting.

Over the past several years, Hidden Meadows has built 13 new tee areas, and now offers alternate tees for everyone looking to play 18 holes. We’ve added several new strategically placed bunkers to challenge any level of play, and the third hole will make you think of St. Andrews, with a large ‘double’ green. Hidden Meadows has also become recognized for having some of the best greens in the greater Bangor area.

The new section of the third green opened this season, providing golfers with a taste of the famous double greens at St. Andrews in Scotland.

At Hidden Meadows Golf Course, we want our members and all of our patrons to have a great experience every time they come out to the course. We have a dependable fleet of Club Car golf carts. We continue to invest in new maintenance equipment to keep the course in the best possible condition at all times. We have developed a responsible fungicide and pesticide program to maintain and improve the quality of our greens, tees and fairways. We take extra care of our greens with regular verticutting, annual aerification and overseeding. We are continually making improvements and additions to the entire facility, recently adding a covered picnic area and breaking ground for a new teaching/club fitting studio.

Regular verticutting is one of the many maintenance practices we use to make our greens roll great and fun to putt on.

Hidden Meadows members can be confident that every member is treated equally. Our pricing structure is consistent, and you will never see Monty Hall jump out from behind a curtain and say ‘Let’s Make A Deal!’ All of our fees are published, and they are all available to everyone. And while we do offer Early Bird Special’s and Twi-Light Rates, those specials will never have such an impact on fees that you will ever question your decision to purchase a membership.

If you haven’t ever played here, or if you haven’t been here in a while, come on out and give us a try. It’s a great way to spend a couple hours outdoors and share time with family and friends. And while you’re here, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll see a deer or moose or porcupine, and we definitely have lots of birdies and eagles flying around.

When you think of golf, think of Hidden Meadows Golf Course. We look forward to seeing you!
