Needs help!

Course needs lots of maintenance. Tee Boxes are on need of leveling, bunkers are hard pan and fairways are thin. Wood bridges are starting to rot. Greens are in decent shape. This course is only 26 years old and was in great shape the first 10-15 years.

Left Very Disappointed after 7 holes

Not worth the money Hiddenbrooke charges. Course is in very poor condition(Uneven tee boxes, bare spots in fairways, no sand in the bunkers just hard dirt) Pace of play was painful, marshals are needed. On 1 stretch of 2 holes we saw 3 singles playing alone, why not pair them together to speed up play? We teed off at noon and at the rate we were going I sincerely doubt that we would have finished by sundown because if you’ve played Hiddenbrooke you know that the back 9 plays slower than the front 9. After 7 holes we were done! We just took our clubs and walked off the course, Didn’t ask for our money back, just DONE!!

Challenging terrain, hazards, fun to play

Given the natural contours of the landscape and the hazards, this can be a challenging course. If you have good control over your clubs (both long and short), you will have no problem. If you have challenges getting (and staying) on the fairway, be prepared to lose some balls! This is a good course to hone your skills!

Greens

Nice course, but the greens with all the fungus mounds is an issue. I understand the greens are going to be taken care of at the end of the year, so that aside I had a great time on the course and played in 3 hours & 15 minutes.

Beautiful course layout

This course has a beautiful layout, very interesting design, challenging and fair.

There are a lot of elevation changes and moguls to navigate. Some greens are very well protected by water or bunkers. Tea boxes are in good shape.

If you live in California you know that we are in drought conditions so there are some dry patches on some fairways but overall this is a greener course than others at the present moment. You also know there is a fungus that is going around the golf courses, probably spread on the soles of our golf shoes. There are a couple of greens that have this fungus which makes them difficult to roll truly, but most of the greens are clear or recovering.

This is an old school course layout with many bunkers, which are expensive to maintain and the bunkers here need sand or re-design. The bunkers are a little hard and you have to pick the ball cleanly out of it. If you like fluffy sandy bunkers, will, just avoid the bunkers here.

The course maintenance is good. This is really good value for the money. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely return. We had a wonderful round and I was surprised at how beautiful the place is.

Just watch the signs painted on rocks to find your next hole or you’ll make a wrong turn.

Lacking in general maintenance

Driving range is weak, tee boxes beat up, fairways are ok at best, MANY greens suffering from fungus so unplayable and the bunkers have dime size rocks mixed with dirt and gravel. Sad cuz it could be a very nice course if maintained .

OMG! This course is sooo bad.

Many years ago this used to be a very well groomed fun course. I hadn't played it for years. Last time I played it I could see it was going downhill. No sand in the traps, tee boxes uncared for, fairways patchy with a lot of dirt and no grass etc. That was then. This time it was all that plus it was way, way worse. Whoever owns this course should be ashamed. It's one of the worst tracks I've ever played. There were three of us and after nine holes we were laughing so hard at the course condition that we decided to call it a day and go have an early dinner at the Dead Fish. Don't waste your money.

Nice layout, but the green is subpar

The fairways are bald in some spots, but that’s understandable in this drought. But the greens are in bad shape. There are many dead spots. The greens don’t reflect the high green fee.

Recent reviews seem a little harsh

Having read a series of reviews from players over the last couple of weeks regarding the greens, I wanted to see firsthand how bad they were. Talked with the club house crew and they indicated the problem was related to a fungus that hit most of the greens. Certainly holes 2 & 3 were in bad shape, but the others seemed to be recovering. This situation usually takes a little time and maintenance to remedy. I look forward to coming back next month to see how things have changed. I like the course for it's challenging layout.

⭐️⭐️

Last time I played here was February so needed to check the place out. Very disappointed with what I encountered. The tee boxes has always been a work in progress but I saw no progress. The greens were once upon a time in great shape but not anymore. It used to be a great deal but once again that’s no longer true. It has gotten worst since I last played in February.

Needs help

This course has so much potential if it was maintained properly. All of the greens had some sort of fungus which made them very uneven. Tee boxes were uneven and patchy. Bunkers were a joke; packed hard with no sand. Until they do some major work the price should be less. This will be a last resort course for me. Very nice staff.
