Course in decent shape considering all of the rain. Did a twilight round but unfortunately there were two elder 4somes in front of me, so I ended up skipping a few holes and getting 16 total holes in before dark. Course is of moderate difficulty.

Gary, from the pro shop called me in the morning for my 12:09 tee time to inform me carts won't be going out. That, was good customer service and I told him I appreciated his call.

What I didn't like was following a 5-some from the 11th hole on. It was a busy day and NO NEED TO DO THAT.

Not impressed at all. 11:51 and 12;00 tee times joined together on #11.

Not the first time here at Hidden Lake, but it was scorching hot so maybe not as busy. Starter got us off early and we played in 3:15. Unheard of for public golf. Marshall dropped off ice cold water bottles...great touch. Pro shop staff was friendly too. Course is a bit beat up, but greens still fast and rough was super tough.

The course was in good shape considering the very hot humid days we’ve had for a couple of weeks.

Only issue was group of four juniors in front of us who made for a very long front nine. Schools out baby sitting isn’t what I planned on when I booked my tee time.

The course itself is decent. The most expensive cart fees I've seen to date. they asked for $22.50 per person for cart. We played blues because the starter really URGED us to before the first tee. It was VERY short, with mostly all par 4's well under 400 yds and some barely over 300. But the yellow tees weren't much better and blacks weren't even to be found on most holes.

The starters were friendly enough, but from the marshals to the clubhouse staff. INCREDIBLY arrogant, unfriendly and uncaring about the customers and other people. Just go about their business not tending to people waiting. When making a complaint, the manager was the worst of all (if he was indeed the manager at all, because I've never seen one that BAD before, EVER ANYWHERE).

Hi Hsahn17.

I am disappointed to hear of your poor experience. Our Blue Tees are just over 6,000 yards - but you should always play the tees that best match your skill and comfort level.

Our staff are some of the most accommodating, friendly staff as most reviews point out. Therefore, it is disappointed to hear of a bad encounter with the team. If you could provide any feedback over the phone at 905-841-5351 it would be greatly appreciated.

I booked 6:09 on the north course.

15 minutes later I got a cancellation from golf now.

I called the course and they said it was ladies night and I had to go back in and pick a new t time which I did.

The problem is we paid $10.00 more each for a new t time.

Not right and afterwards we wanted to stay for dinner and the service was lousy so we left.
