Although this course is less than 6000 yds.and the slope and rating is considered low,there is a challenge as club selection and water make this a fun course.Conditions are good and their practice area is well kept.

Enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at Hidden Lakes. The course conditions are good, the lunch sandwich delicious and the company of golfers polite. It's a short course and plenty of par 3's but just the place to test your short game.

Wow paid $35.00 on golf now for this $20.00 course and even then not worth the money. Staff was pedantic and rude. Did not seem to want Golf Now players. Grass on fairways was bad to worse. Greens were ok but were uneven and needed water badly as did the fairways. All in all a bad experience.

Hidden Lakes is a very short course and relatively easy for all but the most inept golfers. The staff was friendly enough and the course was in decent condition.

The greens were slow but in reasonably good shape. Though there are some lateral water hazards on the course the landing zones are wide enough for all but those who can't control their shots. There are a few bunkers but they are easily avoided. They appeared to be in good shape but I didn't get the chance to test them. Topology is flat. Trees are almost no factor. Available land for the course was limited so there are a few places where tees are very close to greens, so beware of people behind you when you step up on a tee.

The course was fairly crowded so the pace was slow. It seemed that there were quite a few older golfers and high handicap players there, so that didn't help the pace.
