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.

Always enjoy

Course is always in good shape, except #8, the mid-third of the hole has been unplayable the last few times I’ve played here, just too much water on the whole...,it’s ashamed, cuz it’s probably one of the more interesting holes on the course! Please fix it!

Golfing Weekend with Buddies

What a pleasant surprise!

Have been to this area many times over the last 30 years but never for golf.

We rented a place on the beach and several of my buddies came over for a couple rounds of golf.

The layout of the course is excellent and we enjoyed great pace of play! While there are houses on most every hole, they are setback at a most comfortable distance. Very engaged staff as well.

Thank You!

Greens in very good shape

Course in general looking good, especially for winter. They have had considerable rain of late, so plenty of casual water around, especially on #8.

Bring your Mud shoes!

The greens are very good and fast. Other than the greens, the rest of the course is muddy and wet. Most of the bunkers on the front nine are full of water. Low spots off the fairway are full of water, and this is after 3 days of no rain. Every shot you had to clean the mud off of your ball. Like I said, other than the greens, the rest of the course was a mud bath. Actually the back nine was much drier than the front nine. The par 5 eighth hole was virtually unplayable after the tee shot. The pond is so high, the fairway is flooded up to the bunker and cart path.

Great course, great greens, great pace of play

We enjoyed our round. We got behind another group and the ranger negotiated for us to play through. We played in just over three hours. The course was in good shape and the greens were in great shape. We’ll be back to play again!

Fun course slick smooth greens

Played gold tees and enjoyed the course layout and shot selections created even most holes are below 400. Greens are slick and in excellent condition. Par 3s and 5s are all good golf holes with risk reward options.
