Hide-A-Way Lake has three 9-hole golf courses. These courses can be combined in pairs to form three different 18 hole course challenges. The nine-hole courses are The Central Course, The East Course, and The West Course.

Hide-A-Way Lake Golf Course opened for play in 1967 with the newest nine added in 2005. The cours(s) were designed by John Haynes and Jeffrey D. Blume

Hide-A-Way Lake Golf Course is an amenity of the charming Hide-A-Way Lake community which is centered around three outstanding bass fishing lakes and the impressive 27-hole golf course. The three 9-hole courses are played in 18-hole combinations, all of which feature tiny, elevated greens, various irrigation lakes, numerous dogleg holes, and fairways lined by the ever-present East Texas pine trees. The course is not long, but is extremely difficult if you fail to adapt your game to the course.

The Central nine is the longest and opens with a 561-yard monster. You’ll need three solid shots to reach the green here, as the tee shot doglegs long and left, followed by two approaches up a steep hill. A huge oak tree blocks the green from about 40 yards out. This is an enjoyable nine with many challenging dogleg holes, as well as the typical elevated greens.

The newer East course, like the Central, starts off with a difficult par 5. The tee shot needs to stay left to avoid the out-of-bounds and tall pines on the right. The second shot is key because you must lay up in front of the creek, and ensure you’ve got the perfect angle to the elevated green. The approach is intimidating–anywhere from a 5 iron to wedge over the creek into a multi-tiered green bordered by a lake on the right. Bogey is good here. The East greens aren’t as strikingly elevated as the other two nines.ned in pairs to form three different 18 hole course challenges. The nine-hole courses are The Central Course, The East Course, and The West Course.

My home course and I can't wait for the yearly trip home to play it. Great layout, always in great condtion. Grees are challenging and there are a variety of shots to choose. You can play driver on every 4 and 5 but youu can play an iron or hybrid too. Can't wait to get back! Wonderful members too.

Hide-A-Way is one of the most difficult courses in the area. During the late spring and summer, this course is terrific! The greens are difficult to putt because of the undulations. This course is much harder to than the yardage would indicate. Many bunkers to deal with. Overall, an excellent course.
