First time Playing here, we'll be back
This was the first time playing Hidden Creek, it will not be our last. My wife and I really liked the course it was in excellent condition, very lush and green, better than average condition for Texas in the middle of summer. The greens were a challenge, they were fairly fast, but didn't break as much as they appeared that they should. Over all it was very enjoyable course to play.
A Walk Through the Woods
This is my second time here. I really like this layout and appreciate the challenge. This is not a terrible long course, but can be a bear off the tee with trees lining both sides of many fairways. Novice golfers need to learn to hit the ball fairly strait off the tee before coming out here, otherwise you will spend all day in the trees and slow down the pace of play. The greens are good. Staff is friendly. Can't wait to come back.
Course will be ready in a couple weeks when greens recover from aeration...Challenging track especially in wind.
First Time Out
So, there were a few conditions that affected today's round. First, the greens were punched recently, so naturally they were slow and bumpy. Second, there has been some rain recently. They were on Cart Path Only. Honestly, other than a few early holes that didn't drain well, it was completely unnecessary. The layout requires accuracy off the tee. The carts are nice but do not have GPS, so make sure to load a phone app for distance to the pin. One interesting aspect of this course is the varying distances from the different tees. The back tees often product a mid or long iron approach, especially in to the wind. The white tees are the right distance for the average golfer. There are many holes that are three club greens, so pay attention to the flag placement. Finally, the par 5's can be a little tricky the first time out, so the bombers may want to lay back a bit. Overall I'm really looking forward to coming back out and playing on a day with the greens in normal condition and carts on 90 degrees.
Good condition, but the usual bad spots still there
Course was in good condition. There are challenging holes.
Many dead spots, cause by carts, next to cart paths are still there. Does not look like been fixed.
The water puddle, caused by drainage problem is still there next to #6 green (been there for a long time)
Love the shades from big trees next to tee boxes.
Very pleasantly surprised.
I have been driving by this course for years and just finally got around to trying it out. To be honest I was not expecting what I found. A tight, highly varied, and challenging course. It was in perfect condition, but I was told there was a city championship tournament being held the next day, so I assume they were peaking the condition. Plus it has been a very wet spring so pretty much all the coursed in the area are in excellent condition. I will be interested to see how it holds up as the dry summer heat sets in. This course offers of risk/reward situations. The par 5 first hole requires a long carry well placed drive, or a layup (forget trying to stay in the extremely narrow fairway between the hazard on the right and the sand trap and woods on the left. Not even Ben Hogan would be able to hit it with any consistency. There is pretty much serious trouble in play on almost every hole. The greens were very true, but had and interesting characteristic of being quite fast but with little break, however, my approach shots held well on these greens, so you could go after the pin, though there were a lot of challenging pin placements this day.
The only minus was the condition of many of the sand traps. Luckily the one I got in was well groomed, but I saw several that looked muddy, rocky and hard baked.
The layout is also conducive to someone who likes to walk the course, like I do. It is efficiently laid out.
This course will definitely go into my rotation of courses I regularly play. Very nice to find another very good, well priced public course in the area.
Pace was exceptional (see more below)... Condition for being late fall was exceptional... Difficulty was nice, i.e. challenging but fair... Odd, but course backed up starting at hole 14; didn't "ruin" the round but was definitely a distraction. Would definitely recommend and play again.
I was initially disappointed when first arriving. The course is municipal-style, located just off of the highway. Therefore a few holes are quite noisy from traffic. Past that, however, the course is rather pleasing. The staff were friendly and the conditions appeared respectable. Fairways were already dormant and the greens were painted. The greens were fair, running fast and true. The layout was also interesting. A particular par five will test you with it’s “S” shaped fairway. I would play here again.
We played 9 holes in almost 3hrs and quit. The foursome in front of us were hitting several tee shots each, and also multiple fairway shots, no marshal visible on the course as well.
Considering the rain, great shape
Considering the amount of rain we've had the past few weeks, course played good. Greens rolled true.
My teenage son and I went and played Hidden Creek today. The weathe started out great but we caught a little rain. The course held up well, greens ran true, and we will be back regularly!
