Played with my father early in the morning. After all the rain, the course was very soft and receptive. Tee boxes were in good shape for the most part. Fairways needed to be mowed, but couldn't because of so much rain the week before (We played lift-clean-and-place bc of soggy turf). Fridge was in great shape. Greens rolled truer than I expected (still didn't make a lot of putts though - not the courses fault ha). Greens also accepted approach shots well with minimal roll-out if you spin it some or hit it high. As the sun got higher, they began to dry out as expected. Warning: Don't hit it in the bunkers! Most were filled with water and had compacted sand.

Off the tee, the course demands quality tee shots. Luckily the rough isn't too thick so if you do push one right or have the occasional duck-hook, you'll be able to make a strong approach. #7 is still in poor shape and may need a buried pipe or two before the issue is resolved. Tons of elevation change and dog legs, so be prepared for a challenge!
Worth the $18/player but wouldn't pay more than$25 until improvements are made.

Overall, I was pleased and will probably go back in the fall when it cools down.

He would play this course again.

Lots is recent rain has improved fairways and greens at Hidden Valley. Still rough on some holes but better than rounds earlier this summer. Still a good place to play with good prices on Golf Now Hot Deals. Never crowded so you can play without waiting on holes

From reading some of the other reviews, I was expecting something far worse. Is it perfect? No. There are some erosion issues on #7 and #9, but the rest of the course is in pretty good shape. It is better than when I played it in May. The greens were in good shape, which is better than I can say for most of the other area courses. I love the layout of this course. It is very challenging and has some huge elevation changes that demand precision tee shots. The staff is very friendly and the course is coming along nicely. Sure, there is room for improvement, but it is well worth the $18 I paid to play it. I’ll certainly go back.

This is the 3rd time I’ve played here this summer and it continues to come around. The greens are in good shape and roll true. The fairways continue to come in. I’ve read some varying reviews on this course and feel like some folks are being a bit harsh. Is it perfect? No. Are there some tee boxes that are spotty? Yes. And yes, #7 and #9 continue to have problems with erosion. But play these spots as ground under repair and make it work. You will not find a better value for the money around Columbia. The layout is very challenging and is just a fun course to try and get around. The staff is very friendly. If you’ve never played there, spend the $18 and give it a chance. But if you play poorly, don’t blame the grass. 6765 yds 72.1/127 from the tips with some huge elevation changes and ample woods and water to eat wayward shots offer quite the test.

Never one of my favorites, but back 9 has some pretty views of Columbia. But yesterday was the worst condition ever played. Tee boxes not maintained, and crabgrass knee high in fairways ?and throughout course. Greens speed consistent and were in pretty good shape.

He would not play this course again.
