Hermon Meadow opens nine holes to kick off golf season

By Dave Barber, BDN Staff

HERMON, Maine — Hermon Meadow Golf Club will open for the season officially at 9 a.m. Friday, according to owner John Snyer.

The holes, which Snyer called both his “Spring Nine” and “Crazy Nine,” will be the ones most open to the sun and which thaw earlier and dry faster. They are Nos. 1, 7-12, 17 and 18.

Riding carts will not be allowed, though.

“I’m not that crazy yet,” Snyer said Thursday night, laughing. “But it won’t be long if I have anything to do with it.”

The “Crazy Nine” green fee is $10 to play all day.

“Some of my members played today,” he said. “They said, ‘It’s not too bad, John.’”

While that might be attributed to normal golfer enthusiasm, Snyer did say all of the nine greens will be in play. There will be temporary tees on some of the holes but not all nine.

He said he was a little worried when the heavy snowfall from the January storms melted away quickly and was followed by extremely low temperatures. The course apparently suffered no ill effects, however.

“The greens look great,” he said.
