Hidden Creek Golf Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, a short distance from Atlantic City.
This links-style course opened in 2002. The course was designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore.
The course plays through rolling terrain, bordered by a lengthy cut of rough, tall fescues and pine forest in some areas. The fairways play to challenging greens, guarded by several menacing bunkers. Water does not come into play at all on this course.
The championship tees measure 7023 yards, the back tees 6562 yards, the middle tees 6155 and the forward tees 5447 yards. Every hole is distinct, visually striking and uniquely appealing.

This is an ultra private course so you need an "in". Mine was a friend of a friend. The design is by Coore and Crenshaw and is one of the best that I have ever played. It is difficult for the top player yet enjoyable for the high handicapper. The greens are very large so you need to place the ball nearer the hole to avoid three putts. We were one of only a few groups that played that day. Once we teed off we saw only (occasionally) the group behind us and only one other group when we were on the 11th green. The staff made us feel like we belonged even though we were just one time guests. They are clearly very proud of their club and course. The only places in southern New Jersey which rank with Hidden Creek are (of course) Pine Valley and Metedeconk, but I would put HC above Metedeconk. Unlike HC's near neighbor Galloway, you do not stand on tees wondering "what the hell do I do here". Some of the bunkers are very penal, but they can be avoided. If you get the chance to play here, do not pass it up.
