NORTON, MA -- The New England Golf Course Owners Association (NEGCOA) is pleased to announce Spring Meadows Golf Course has been named the 2021 Chapter Course of the Year. Spring Meadows Golf Course was recognized as course of the year based on four key areas including Exceptional Quality of the Course, Exceptional Quality of Ownership and Management, Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community, and Significant Contributions to the Game. Spring Meadows Golf Course is the first course in Maine to win the award.

Owned by the Pollard family, Spring Meadows Golf Course is a public golf course. The family takes great pride in the course operation, conditions, quality of the staff, and ability to provide access to the game of golf no matter what type of golfer comes to play. Spring Meadows took great care during the Covid-19 pandemic to follow CDC guidelines in providing a safe environment for customers and employees alike.

Owner David Pollard plays a key role in the Maine golf industry as he is currently the president of Golf Maine and the vice president of the NEGCOA. David spearheaded the first Maine State Golf Day, a day to bring those in the golf industry to the state capital to meet with legislators to discuss the importance of the industry to the state of Maine. He has also represented the state on several trips to Washington DC, to attend National Golf Day to meet with legislators at the federal level. Advocacy support continues with Spring Meadows Golf Course as a participating club in the Golden Passport to New England Golf a fundraising program for the NEGCOA.

Spring Meadows Golf Course was recognized for its accomplishments at the Annual Chapter Meeting held virtually this year. David Pollard was online to accept the award. The course will now move forward in the selection process for National Course of the Year, to be announced at the virtual NGCOA Golf Business Conference in January.
