I will not bring my tournament group back here. There is no excuse for the condition of the tee boxes. Extremely uneven and overly dry so there are tee boxes that are almost dead. The tee boxes are absolutely the worst Ive played on in the past 10 years or so. The fact that they are undulating due to tons of bumps makes finding a good spot to tee the ball up damn near impossible. The traps are not in any better shape than the tee boxes they are extremely bare of sand in almost all traps. Some are actually completely empty and sport GUR signs in each. The strangest thing is that while the tees are dying from lack of water the fairways were so over watered that it was impossible to not leave muddy cart tracks everywhere. When you hit a shot that you know will run you don't get any because the ball just landed in velcro. On a 1 - 10 scale I'd give this course a solid 3 maybe 4. I used to feel it ranked in the 7-9 area.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I won't play again, I wouldn't recommend this course, More than a field, but less than a golf course, Better courses for less nearby, Any price would be too much for this courses

I originally played this course when there were no homes. I recall it being a very tough course. After playing it now with all the homes, it just has a different feel. With the homes, the course is not as intimitating.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

Only real negative is presently all the tee boxes need to be re-done (leveled and re-turfed) and the sand traps need actual sand (right now , more dirt than sand.....and very low on volume) But, still for the great layout, condition of greens, pleasant and helpful staff, and ambiance (quite scenic) as long as the rates stay this reasonable (can get good deals on GolfNow and TeeOff.com........but also very reasonable on the course's own site), I will continue to drive the 40 miles (and 2 bridge tolls) to play there. It's one of the 2 courses in The Bay Area I play the most.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area

One of the best layouts in the area. Not lengthy from the blue tees but degree of difficulty is high. Greens can be difficult when fast and when the winds kick up this course will give you fits.

I got a great rate from an external website. Have played Hiddenbrooke about 5 times now and enjoy the layout. I thought the greens could have been a little quicker - they were very soft in some places. Our foursome had a great day, and will definitely be back in the future.

Enjoyable course, plenty of challenges, conditioning was fine. No marshalls around to keep the pace going. Took 5 hours on a slow day because two couples of poor players in front of us couldn't keep up.

The course itself is worth playing. The staff acted like I was doing them a favor for playing there. They don't seem to enjoy their jobs. The food and beverage area is too small and overpriced with too few selections.

They do a shotgun on Mondays at first light for $49 with a cart if you book online. You can't beat that bargain - $49 doesn't get you on with a cart at the crappy muni courses in the South Bay. This course seemed short from the middle tees we played, but it was still plenty challenging. You have to think your way through all your shots. Next time I'd play one tee box back. I'm not sure what the standard greens fees are, but $49 is a steal for this level of course. If it wasn't so far from San Jose, I definitely would play it again and again.
