Hidden Valley Lake Golf

The course was under construction around the Diner and proshop area, the weather was overcast and cloudy with intermittent showers throughout the week. The fairways had standing water throughout. The course was fun to play as there were elevated greens and T Boxes. The fairways were nicely kept. The greens were really nice and manicured advertising 120 slope but they weren't that fast due to rain. The course offered several areas of trouble with Sandra's, sand bunkers, and running creeks. I really enjoyed playing the course, it's not too extreme but makes playing interesting. I will return, but in late spring or summer when there is warmer weather and sunshine.

Beeeautiful

Well, the first nine was just okay. Wide and straight. Not easy tonlose balls. However, the second half was amazingly beautiful and challenging. At the beginning you're to climb up a few holes to reach the top of hill, then wow, the stiff downhill hole, I think it was 15th, was stunning like no other. Missed a birdie but quite satisfying!

Great staff

Due to a mix up our tee time was not on the course computer even though it had been booked. Construction was going on at the course with very limited play. Richard the director of golf could not have been nicer or more accommodating. He made sure our booking was honoured and that we had a highly enjoyable round. A great experience thanks to Richard.

If you build it...

If you build it, they will come. This course, and the anchoring casino, is literally in the middle of nowhere. But every aspect of the casino, hotel, and golf course are first rate. The clubhouse rivals any private course that I've visited. They outdid themselves in every aspect of this venue. I can't help but put this in the same category as Ram's Hill, another golf course in the middle of nowhere but is on the Golf Digest Top 50 list. It's pricey for being out there so far but worth the trip. Don't miss out on this one, it is an excellent track in outstanding condition.

Very scenic

This course puts you back to nature. It’s beautiful and fun and challenging. It’s mental therapy. There are grip it and rip it holes and holes that you have to think and be creative. A blast to play ! Lots of enjoyment deer to see. A fun factor of 10! I’ll be playing this course as long as I’m taking in oxygen
