Rated 2 out of 5 by u00000966107 Good greens, poor fairways
While the greens were in good condition, the fairways were often weedy, sandy, and eroded. Some tee boxes were moved to accommodate the problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by alpha3elite Great course to play
Very good experience with staff upon arrival very informative decent selection of edibles. At departure there was a lady present who seemed to be very disengaged while working the desk but there was very little need for chit chat after 18 holes. Overall a good experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WYOGOLFGUY Great layout
This course has a very challenging layout. Great holes that present varying degrees of difficulty. This course has obviously seen better days, and is need of some fairway TLC, but the greens are great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by britt9845081 Greens are the only things worth it
The greens are the only things on this course that are maintained. The fairways are mostly sand, dirt, rocks, and weeds. There are no cart paths. Just sand paths. The tee boxes are dirt and weeds. They are not level and bumpy. Definitely not worth $35 to play. You can play at a top rated course for the same price.

Second time playing this course. Facilities were in decent shape but need upkeep. Greens were in really good conditions but fairways and bunkers need maintenance. Great golfnow prices but not for the full asking price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by coleydale10 Great Layout but Needs Work
The first thing that caught my eye when I played is the condition of the greens. They were very nice compared to other courses in the area. Fairways and bunkers need work as well as the tee boxes. Snack and drink prices are a little high and so is the golf itself. I would play Hidden Valley more often if the price to play wasn't so high. I love the layout of the course. Difficult course, good course, but a little pricey.

I had previously played this course and was not happy, mainly due to the staff being so rude. This time I was pleasantly surprised. New people in the clubhouse made for a very comfortable environment. Course was in decent shape. Will definitely return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by golfguy6980 Great Course for the Money
I used to play this course back in my college days because they had a good student price. I had not play the course in years and was apprehensive when I saw the reviews by Cobras04 and Englishf. The "mean lady" in the pro shop was very nice to me and went out of her way to help me. At a lot of other courses when I come in with a GolfNow Tee time the staff is very rude and act like I am cheating them out of something. So I don't know if those other guys were rude to her or maybe just caught her on a bad day.
As for the course, I would say it is as good as any other public course in the area except for Cobblestone. The greens were in good shape and rolled true and the fairways were nice. Some of the tee boxes needed work, but I saw where they were redoing some of them. The rough was just ok, but there were some areas on the edges of the course that you could see they had erosion problems, but I figured I shouldn't hit the ball there anyway.
The layout has always been one of my favorite in Columbia and the course conditions have come a long ways from when I was in college. I will definitely be going back.
