Rating 72.8

The Club at Hidden Creek is one of northwest Florida's most treasured courses. Opened in 1988, it is still relatively young but it has built its reputation on it its well manicured greens and lush landscaping. A few years after opening, a local newspaper ranked it the best golf course in northwest Florida. The course features tree-lined fairways that tumble across scenic rolling terrain. The challenging golf course once served as a host site for the US Open Qualifying Rounds. Water hazards come into play as well as several strategically placed bunkers. Although seasoned golfers are kept on their toes, the layout is more still approachable thank to four different sets of tees. The Club at Hidden Creek has a longstanding reputation amongst the local community and many would consider a visit to the Emerald Coast incomplete without it.

Overall decent course

Good course. Well kept, staff wasn't very friendly minus drink kart girl and greeter at 1st hole they were great! No option to only book 9 holes. Have to pay for 18 and it's pretty expensive. The course itself was in great condition though.

My passion

I grew up loving golf I was very fortunate to be able to play with my dad up to two weeks before he died on the golf course with my son it was amazing my back is so shot right now that I went out there today and could only play 12 holes and had to leave the golf course I think this might be my final round of golf ever I'm 61 years old and my back is fried but my passion is so strong that I wanted to go out today and play and right now I'm very sad because I don't think I'll ever be able to play golf again and it kills me

Beautiful challenging course layout

Love playing Hidden Creek. The course is well maintained and the layout is very challenging. Accuracy is better than distance on many holes, so aim for your shot shape and pay attention to the tips for each hole in the excellent course yardage book. Greens were very fast today!

What’s up with the fairways?

My only guess is that the irrigation system broke because the fairways looked and played like a cow pasture
The check in clerk made it known she doesn’t approve of golf now deals very unfriendly

Thank you for the review. I have to ask, are you leaving a review for The Club at Hidden Creek in Navarre? The reason I ask is because we have no problems with the irrigation and our fairways and greens are in great condition! If this is the right golf course, please call me at (850) 939-4604 and we can discuss any issues you may have had.
Very, Respectfully,

Favorite layout but terrible pace of play

This is my favorite course Navarre- Pensacola area but the fivesomes are killing the fun and I would rather play at a lesser course where the marshalls keep the players moving.
The fivesomes are not considerate of the
groups behind them and refuse to let anyone play through .
That is ruining the game of gold andH C has not responded to he problem.
The marshalls seem timid to keep the pace of play moving and I'm fed up with inconsiderate players on the golf course.
A complAint to the Marshall got a strong rebuttal.
It will be a while before I play there again.

Great Course

Not sure what is the basis of some of the foolish 1 or 2 star negative reviews.
If these "high" handicap players who spray from left to right
would play from the White (Regular) Tees.. rather than the Gold or The Tips... they would enjoy the round more . for themselves as well as the players behind them,.
The course plays fair and consistent; especially with the lon g drty spell.

Great course

I wanted to get in a round while on vacation in FL, and this course was close to my friends house in Navarre. I drove by the course before making my tee time and it looked great. I wasn't disappointed in the course at all, I'd play here often if i lived here!!! I recommend the course, especially for my green fee.

Fun day with wife and friends

Tees off late due to weather
The course was not busy at all
Front nine played fair after some rain
Fairways were slow but greens were surprisingly fast The back played fair as everything dried out
