Great layout, very poor course conditions

Keep coming back for the creative, challenging, modern course design. The canyon creates challenging wind conditions, there are holes where club selection changes by the minute with the swirling winds. Holes 1, 3, 5, 8, 9, 15, 16, 17 and 18 are wonderful golf holes. Hole 16 is one of my all time favorites when the green side ponds are full and the brook is running. Today was the first time I have played here in a couple years. Walked away majorly disappointed in the course condition. T boxes were terrible. Some t boxes were being redone, every hole needs to be addressed as I was hitting off dirt with patchy crab grass. Municipal courses are better than this. Also, overgrown trees impacted t boxes too. Mr Palmer would be ashamed. The course is generally wet, more so today. The rough was gnarly, creating a unique look and feel, penalizing shots that even just missed the green. No issue with this type of setup, except I think this was due to deferred maintenance rather than a creative superintendent. Most of the greens were in good shape. The traps were distressed, lacking what looked like months of attention. Won’t be back anytime soon.

Hiddenbrooke Coming Back

You can definitely see a difference Troon is making to Hiddenbrooke. The most noticable is the drainage. Playing a morning round regardless of weather you could always count on puddles on certain holes . Those were gone. Tee boxes are being rebuilt, currently #13 is in porgress so no 100 foot drop tee shot on to the par three. The greens and fairways were both in good shape. I'm not sure if it was by design but the rough was very long making it a lot tougher if you don;t find the fairway.

Hiddenbrooke a very nice layout and nice greens

The course has a very nice and challenging layout, the greens were in very good conditions, however the fairways are just Ok. I did not like the roug,h, they are really thick and tall, so if you want to score say in the fairway. Areas of improvements: no question the t-boxes a lot of opportunities and also the bunker, they are just dirt. I will play again for sure.

Hiddenbrooke getting better, every day!

Now that Troon has taken over the management of this course, the course seems to be improving, week by week. The fairways are green, the greens are green and the rough is being mowed! If there had been more sand to the bunkers, I’ d have rated the condition of the course as having 4 stars, instead of 3. I really like what Troon is doing the the course. Keep up the good work!

Best value in the Bay Area

This is a hidden gem. You can usually get on easily, the cost is minimal (especially compared with other Bay Area courses), and the course itself is challenging, interesting and well maintained. Tough greens to putt. Palmer made a good one here. Run by Troon Golf. Don't walk it- you will be wiped out. Very hilly and can get hot

Challenging & fun

Loved playing this course. It’s tough - if you don’t hit straight you will become frustrated. Fairways are narrow, hilly, tree lined with water hazards everywhere. Greens are mean. Can’t wait to play again.

Slow Progress

I write a review about Hiddenbrooke about once or twice each year, to gauge the progress. Still needs to come a ways, and expected more from Troon. This is a great layout, challenging and fun. Off course amenities are solid, the grill and drinks are good. The course once was so much fun, and is less than ideal because of (1) crappy uneven tee boxes (mats would be better almost), (2) uneven and poorly maintained bunkers (maybe getting better glacially) and (3) poor rough and off the fairway maintenance. The last one is very frustrating because they don't mow off the cart paths and you lose far too many balls that are a foot from the path. I have no idea why it's so hard to fix the tee boxes (17 has been ripped up for so long that weeds have grown back into the area they prepped for a new sod), It still is fun when you don't get stuck behind a slow 4 (or a 5). They need to fix the boxes all of them and move the grill to the main clubhouse and set up a public drinking area where you can watch people come in on 18 (like Half Moon Bay),
