Pleasant Suburban Course

Hidden Haven Golf Club is a very pleasant little (5,968 yards from the tips) suburban course. My first impression from the modest pro shop staffed by only one person wasn't all that positive. However, once on the course my evaluation became much more favorable. The course is fairly wide open, the front nine has very sparse tree coverage and generously wide, very well maintained fairways. The back nine is a little tighter and has more trees, including some very large oaks and cottonwoods that will hinder approach shots if you stray too far from the fairway. The rough is short enough that you shouldn't lose any balls there. The course is set in what appears to be a housing development, but the houses don't really intrude on the course and only a very hard hook or slice will end up in someone's back yard. The back tees are rated at 68.9 with a slope of 124, so the course is not overly difficult. In my estimation, the greens were the best part of the course. They are in great condition, smooth and roll true. And most of them are contoured like a potato chip. Some of them have two distinct tiers, while others are definitely undulating. A long putt may go up, then down, then up again before reaching the hole. I had seen a review of this course that said the greens were slow. My playing partners, members at the course, told me that this had been true in previous years and that management had addressed this issue. In fact, the greens are now moderately fast. Your putts won't go speeding past the hole, but they also won't die on the way to the hole. The round starts with a pretty 346 yard par 4 with a forced carry over water on the approach shot. The green gives a good preview of what is to come. The sixth hole is a 204 yard par 4 that should be easy pickings. However, the near part of the green slopes from front to back, so going for a front pin might lead to a 3-putt when the ball shoots to the back of the green. The most challenging hole on the back is the 230 yard par 3 17th hole. No one in our group hit the green with their tee shot. The closest found the front right bunker, but managed to get up and down for par. This course is enjoyable and relaxing, and I enjoyed playing it. About the only negative is that there is no driving range for a pre-round warmup or practice. On the other hand, some say that practice is overrated.

I play Hidden Haven 6 or 7 times a year. I like the good prices and solid playing conditions every time I go out there. It's a unique course with wide open holes on the front and tight fairways on the back. Hitting the tee shot straight is the most important thing you can do. Playing from the rough will put you hills or behind trees. My only complaints with the course is that there is no range and the greens are the slowest in the state. but it's still fun.
