Head pro Madsen receives honorable mention for youth instruction

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – Hidden Creek Golf Club was named one of the top 50 private club golf club practice ranges in the United States by the Golf Range Association of America.

The rating took into account factors such as amenities, targets, instructors and instructional programs, club fitting offerings, visits and more.

“We take great pride in the quality of our practice facilities and our instructional offerings,” said Hidden Creek head golf professional Andrew Madsen. “These add value and enjoyment to the membership experience at Hidden Creek, and are also important in introducing new golfers to the game.”

Madsen received an honorable mention in the 2012 U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Teachers Award, now in its eighth year, which recognizes golf professionals who have dedicated their careers to developing junior golf in their communities and are known for their overall excellence and commitment to serving youth and helping them develop a love for the game.

“As a golf professional, I believe one of our most important responsibilities is to grow the game by introducing it to youngsters in a way that will make it fun and enjoyable for them,” said Madsen. “We strive to do just that at Hidden Creek.”

The private club was designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, who many regard as two of the pre-eminent golf architects in the world today, according to a news release. Opened in 2002, Hidden Creek has been named one of America’s 100 best modern courses by Golfweek magazine for nine consecutive years.
