Disappointed

First time playing this course and I will never return. The greens were punched a week ago, so I was not expecting them to be in great shape, however I expected them to have grass on them. It was embarrassing. I took my two boys golfing and apologized to them on every shot. There was only one hole where there was true turf grass. The rest was crabgrass or weeds or dirt. The tee boxes were a disaster, sand traps had hard pan dirt.

I have played on a lot of courses over the years and this is by far the worst course conditions I have ever seen.

Close this course down or remove it from the online booking sites. Would hate for others to end up in the same place we did.

A work in great progress!

This course is under new mgmt. The new owner is really trying hard and succeeding in getting this beautiful layout back to where it should be. He’s working very hard himself and investing his own money into the course. Completely redoing #7 and revamping the sprinkler system. Resodding #7 after grading and rerouting
Drainage flow. It’s getting better weekly. Will be in better shape than ever in a few months. Improved the clubhouse and old pro David Cox is back to assist in the process! Ty guys for working hard to get us a nice local course to play!

This place is a dump

My wife and I are not picky but this is the worse golf course we have played in our lives. I cannot even describe how horrible it is. We paid for 18 holes and left after hole 6. This should not even be considered a golf course. Not too mention we teed off at 7:45 and the fore some in front of us had us waiting 10 minutes on every shot.

Don't waste your time!

This course needs help in many ways.
But I do think they are working on it.
One entirre hole was roped off, 16 of the greens were in horrible shape. Cart path with shake you to death, carts are struggling to run or brake. People playing there had no etiquette. No wonder this was $20 on the hot deals!

Course conditions are poor

Greens, fairways and tee boxes are in poor condition.

A lot of temporary tee boxes used.

Course layout is challenging.

Did not enjoy the round.

Fun course

Good value even though hole #7 is closed for major repairs. I wish them well in all the work they’re performing on the course and club house.

Course needs work

Hidden Valley is in dire need of repairs. It's obvious they've started projects to improve the course. Fairways need total replacement. Dirt and weeds have taken over. Greens were okay. Bunker repairs have begun and are in good shape. Pace of play was very slow. No tee time organization and one hole was closed, which required you to play 10 twice. This caused a log jam on the back nine. I wouldn't pay more than $20 - $25 to play this course.

Just awful

I haven’t played a course in worse shape in 20 years. The greens were slow but in decent shape, but the fairways weren’t even playable. It looked like a wasteland.
