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.

We love playing here. Last time we played we got behind 4 guys playing from the pro tees. Ha Ha. They were lucky to get past the women's tees or in the brush or the trees. We skipped a hole and passed them. Made for a wonderful round after the first 2 frustrating holes. Had a great time.

Impressed that the course used recycled gray water.

Greens were in very good shape. Fairways were the best in the area. Nice to see grass.

The golf was very satisfying it was a little slow at times. I do have a problem with your rewards program though. Each time I get a reward there is more restrictions on them. It use to be you could use them on any booking. Then it went to Mon. thru Thurs. with a three day advance booking. Then it went to 3 day Mon. -Thurs. after 1:00 P.M. now the latest reward is 3 day advance Mon . -Thurs. and after 2:00 P.M. Well you cannot even get a round of golf in in that short of time period this time of year. It has to be a really good deal through golf now to pay less than the courses rates because the rewards are useless.
