Good local course

This course is in a very warm area in the summer but the course was in great shape and most of the grass was green and looking good. Front 9 is mostly flat but the back 9 has lots of slope and requires planning on most holes to have a chance to get on in regulation.

This course is very understated in both location and marketing but is a great value. Well kept. Challenging enough and in very good shape.

Hidden Valley Lake Golf Course

The only thing keeping this course from being excellent is the bunkers. They suck. Especially the bunkers with red sand. I have to rate the course conditions as good at best. Fix those bunkers, especially the red sand bunkers and then I can rate the course conditions as excellent! I hope they keep on eye on these ratings. Fix the bunkers, its not that expensive to replace the red sand with white sand.

Hidden Gem

Beautiful track. Front 9 is fairly flat but deceivingly long if wind is up. Back 9 winds through surrounding hills. Beautiful views from 12th green and the 15th tee box. Will be back to play again soon.

HVL Golf Course

This is Lake County's only 18 hole golf course and the best one in the county. The course is maintained well for the most part. Sometimes they can't mow the rough because of rain and it sometimes gets very thick to where you have a hard time finding your ball in it. The white bunkers are average but are much better than the red sand bunkers which are horrible. Sometimes when your ball goes into a red bunker it skips out from lack of sand. There was talk of them removing the red sand and putting in white river sand but to date it has not happened. Stay out of the red bunkers at all costs. The front nine is flat, pretty much wide open and has a few holes that are hard to par consistently. The back nine has a lot more character with elevation changes and more interesting holes. You would think it would be easier to score on the front nine but for some reason I score much better on the back nine. Generally speaking the golf course is well maintained with the exception of the red bunkers and the greens are always in good shape. In the summer the course can play very fast with a lot of roll, which I like. The staff is helpful and friendly and the food and bar are very nice as well. I play here a couple times a month or more, weather permitting.

Great Course

I live in Calistoga. We play at many corses from Mare Island to Napa to Oakmont to Petaluma and beyond. HVLGC is the best course in the area. Greens are challenging and always in great conditions; the course drains well the fairways are long and challenging and the staff is welcoming and friendly- Love to play at Hidden Valley!

Winter

This is a great course year round. But especially great in the winter. Just got 3 plus inches of rain 3 days ago and only a few holes were cart path only. Greens in great shape and totally receptive. Fairways had some bounce and roll out. All and all great golf, food and beverages.
