Course looking good.

Course has come in well. Bunkers need some work. Senior tees still need more grass and to be leveled. Had a fun round and will be back.

Fairways look better than they have in a while. Tee boxes too. Some of the greens needs some work. Always enjoy playing HV!

Looking much better.

The course is looking the best it has in a long time. Not perfect but certainly playable. Hoping one day they will level the tee boxes (yellow tees). No. 7 still needs a redesign. I will be back.

This a good course. The grass conditions could be better, putting greens need some work.

Oldie but goodie

Good course to just get out and work on game. It has come a long way and is improving. Greens are nice except for one or two that have some spots. Fairways are growing grass except for #7 which is an ongoing project. Bunkers are well kept and like having your own rake in the new carts. Nice touch. A good value with golfnow or without. Love the deal $19 for round and 3 beers. Go check them out.

Improving

I’ve been going to this course for a while before I’ve written this review. It is always improving. The course itself is forgiving and a bit challenging. The greens still need work but the owners have really stepped up their maintenance. I have really noticed a marked improvement on the greens and the course in general. Love the new carts. The concession area is still very lacking. Not sure what can be done but maybe an agreement with a microwaveable sandwich company. The kinda warm hot dogs and so so chili has been a deterrent for eating at the clubhouse.

Getting Better

Although not quite there, the course has soon good improvement from a few months ago. A majority of the greens where in good shape and were a little quick. No. 7 just needs a redesign if it is to get better. I'll be back and hope the improvements continue.

For the price you pay to play its not bad. Be aware there are hardly any cart paths and you will get slammed around if not careful. Gets very annoying. Greens are in okay shape. Some are better than others. Staff is great. Great place to play if you are new or just picked it back up. You get what you pay for. I will continue to play Hidden Valley, it can be a fun course with a little bit of a challenge.

Lots of potential

The course lay out was actually interesting. Some of the fairways and greens look like no one has paid any attention to them in over a month then some of the other fairways and greens are very well taken care of. In the end it was what we expected for the price.

I don't know...

First off, The staff was great. Rod in the pro shop was very friendly.
The course is rough shape. Like hungover, rough. If grass could flourish in that area and anything would grow I could see it being a sweet spot. But there are a few fairways you will just pick up on. Nearly bare, between the roots, sand, dirt and rocks.
And the greens seemed to run true if you have a line that doesn't run through all the crab grass.

If you do play, you might enjoy the track. I think it just needs a lot of love. Maybe rent your clubs.

The Valley

Always my favorite. The course always has a promotion going making it affordable. Never too busy, making it an option over other area courses. Greens are always thick and roll well in the summer. Hopefully the rest will come around with warm weather.

The fairways were horrible. The greens even worse. But you get what you pay for. Course was unacceptable and showed in the course conditions. Staff was friendly and accomodating, but the golfing experience left a lot to be desired.

Needs Help.

The course layout is good but unfortunately the course conditions are not. The course is currently having problems with greens and some fairways. Hopefully time will help to get the course back to good playing conditions. I'll eventually go back but it will be a while.
