Worth the trip!

Some tee boxes were not very well maintained and many bunkers, but it really was a fun course to play. Staff was great and course design was neat.

Well Maintained

One of the nicest courses around, very well maintained. Greens were fast and the course is pretty long but open in most spots, good challenge.

Very good shape

Grayson was in good shape, fairways are still dormant but the ball was rolling well and the greens look great. Seems they may be working on some bunkers but others are in bad shape but understandable with cost of bunker upkeep. Overall very nice

First time in 21 in KY

First time in KY and was not let down (not by the course at least). Hope I can tune my game up so I can challenge it again soon. Greens were great and can't wait for fairways to come out of dormancy.

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.
