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!
Very tight course
This is a very tight course. Not especially long but you need to be in the fairway. There’s not a lot of room for error. Greens are good.
They take great care of the course and equipment
Mike took care of my partner before he arrived. He also had our cart ready for us when we arrived. Great guy! Highly recommend this golf course! Thanks Hidden Creek!
Can't say enough about the staff and how accommodating and friendly they were. Course is in good shape and pace of play was good.
Great overall experience.
Greens were slow but hold a ball great. Fairways are in good shape. Course could work on the crabgrass problem but that is a minor thing. Staff is very friendly and the restaurant has great food.
Great soft tee boxes, other courses I’ve played had hard tee boxes. Nice greens, open space, lost a few balls in the bush, but that’s part of the game. I would play this course again. I like it, even had a cart girl there but didn’t get anything.
I had a great time, I have driven by course over 50 times going back and forth between FW and San Antonio. Always wanted to play it and I finally did I will definitely be back.
Pace of play
It's not that the course is bad. It's actually in good shape. Pace of place is horrible and bunks are rocks and mud. Greens are true. Fairway are nice.
Good Value for the Money, Time and Distance
We have played Hidden Creek several times to date and expect that we will return and play here again in the near future. Living in Arlington, Hidden Creek is not too far to travel. I left my cell phone in the cart and the staff were very helpful in retrieving the phone.
Crowded for a Tuesday.
To crowded for a single during the week. Only played 7 of 18 holes before I stopped trying to play through groups. Course was in real good shape and the price is right.
