HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2018 proved to be one of HGC's best year's on record! With your support and many volunteer's time and effort the club was able to take some positive steps on golf course and clubhouse improvements. The club was able to purchase a new mower and maintenance utility cart, repair our irrigation system, add 40 new golf carts, finish Hole #1 redesign, remove many trees, add new bunkers, add new sand to existing bunkers, and beautify landscaping around the clubhouse.
We hope you will be a part of our ongoing improvements in 2019. One way to be a part of our growth is to purchase a Hiawatha golf membership. Why purchase a golf membership? Consider these benefits:
- Budget how much you spend on golf. By purchasing a golf membership, your green fees are paid for the entire season. This will give you incentive to play more! Add a cart membership and all your golf fees are paid for the entire season!
- Public facility that resembles private club access. Memberships are affordable! Daily golf fees are not overly discounted to overcrowd the golf course with public play, thus resulting in easy members’ access and 9-hole rounds that seldom take over 2 hours.
- Challenging, well-manicured enjoyable course. Bret Mullikin, our golf course superintendent, takes great pride in his work and goes the extra mile to keep the course in great condition. We have the best greens in the area!
- The opportunity to improve your golf game. Take advantage of our practice range for a small yearly fee, sign up for PGA Professional golf instruction, and/or establish a handicap to measure your improvements.
- Meet new friends! Is there a better place to get to know people with similar interests? Enjoy our clubhouse which serves a nice lunch menu and a great seasonal fish fry!
- Families that play golf together, stay together! Did you know that children under the age of 13 are free and for a minimal fee you can add your other children to the membership? Juniors also have access to some great programs that will introduce them to the game. Our local school golf teams continue to grow in participations numbers thanks to our dedicated coaches. As other courses struggle with youth participation, Hiawatha is prospering!
- Competitive opportunities. Searching for some competition? Hiawatha offers many opportunities to compete against your friends and colleagues in some fun events such as our Tuesday Night Men’s League, Monday Morning Seniors' League. Monday Night Couples and fun tournaments throughout the season.
- Great exercise! Did you know if you walked 18 holes pulling your clubs you burn up to 1226 calories! Riding in a cart will burn up to 822 calories. So lose weight while you do something you enjoy.
- Reciprocal access to local area courses. When you purchase a Hiawatha membership, you will receive reciprocal rounds at Fox Hollow (Lacrosse), Forest Hills (Lacrosse), Drugans Castle Mound (Holmen), Skyline (Black River), Viroqua Hills (Viroqua), and River Run (Sparta). Discounted rounds are also available at Lake Arrowhead (Nekoosa) and Waushara Country Club (Wautoma).
- Have access to rent a storage unit for you own private golf cart. HGC gives you the opportunity to rent your own cart storage unit for your own golf cart. Click on this link for a current update on our golf shed storage for 2019.
