Very nice place

Made the hour trip to Hidden Cove and it was well worth it. They have let most of the bunkers go but everything else was in very good shape. Greens rolled true. The staff was very nice and we had a very good time.

Enjoyed the layout

Not for the faint of heart. This is a tough course from a visual perspective. Forced carry from the several of the tees is intimidating. Expected greens to be in better shape(aerated after Labor Day) but not to bad for a municipal course. If you want to challenge your game this is the course, will play again.

Very nice

This is a great course and challenging as well. The layout is difficult and some fairways really tight so not for the below average golfer. Players consistently shooting in the mid-80’s and better will really enjoy this course. Greens were really sandy but there was an aeration alert which was spot on but we went anyway. They do take care of their greens and aeration is part of that so can’t fault them for the timing. Well done Hidden Cove. Great course for a decent price.

WET

The course was very wet so it was cart path only which made it difficult for my 73 yr old body. That being said, it is a beautiful course. the greens are large and putt true. The fairways were in nice shape and easy to hit from. Some of the tee boxes were in bad shape but, over all, it was awesome. I will play it again when the course is drier.

Beautiful Layout

One of the prettiest courses in Ky. Once the bunkers are rebuilt it will be top notch. Very nice greens and fairways.

Great Day!

The course was beautiful and very fun to play. It was the first time we had played Hidden Cove this year and we were not disappointed. Nice range to warm up on and pace of play was phenomenal.

Great Layout

We always enjoy playing Hidden Cove because we like the layout of the course. The Bermuda fairways are in great condition and the lies are perfect. The greens were rolling around 9 and they were smooth and in good condition. The sign of a good course is using every club in your bag to navigate through your round...Hidden Cove fits into that category. My only complaint is the lack of attention to the many bunkers on the course. None have been groomed and many are simply unplayable. I will give Hidden Cove a pass on this at this time due to COVID 19, there a no rakes on the course and it appears that they do not even want you to go in the bunkers. Even though they are strategically placed and they are in play
With that being said, I will be back to enjoy the rest of the course later in the season. I just will just have to make sure to avoid the bunkers.

Best Course Around

Hidden Cove @ Grayson Lake is the top value golf course around. With continued course improvements, it is always a great place to spend an afternoon.
The staff in the clubhouse are always kind and helpful.
Once they finish out their bunker repair project, it will be a VERY challenging course.

Can't wait to spend the Summer here.

Another day in paradise.

Another enjoyable day in Grayson. Started with a great welcome to the clubhouse and continued onto the course. Fairways were excellent and greens were good considering they'd been aerated and topdressed. Some areas off the fairways were a little ragged but should be expected after this summer (not supposed to be playing there anyway). Only true downside was the "sand" bunkers. (Again, not supposed to be playing there). Need to be taken care of or make them into grass bunkers.
Enjoyed the round (not the score) and look forward to hitting the course again before winter. Hopefully can leave my slice at home.
