The course, old one, was in good shape but we’ve had a lot of rain. I tend to find this course a little rough as the summer progresses.

The back nine got slow but we were a two some and managed to progress by a 4some. Ended up sticking around for a bite to eat afterwards. Both our meals were very good!

Great course! Even though Burlington is experiencing more than average rainfalls, drainage systems seems to be working well. Grass is well cut and greens are dry and we'll rolled.

Lots of players there, hard to find parking, but the game was moving at a good pace. Hardly any wait to tee off. A great course to have a decent round of golf.

Playing at hidden lake was amazing. Great course. Nice long par 5’s great par 3’s, watch out for the rough though!

Considering that it’s the end of season it felt like we were playing at the beginning of the year. Fairways were perfect condition with equally good a green.

Great day out was had

Great deal, golfers and staff were friendly. Golf course was good for the time of the year. Golf cart seat was ripped and was seal was tape.

The pace was slow, it is the weekend so it is to be expected. Overall I would go back if I got the same deal.

Other than the aeriated greens course was in great shape. Never understood aeriating greens during peak golf season. We only have 3 good months. At the very least courses should consider compensation for this. It always been a pet peeve of mine.

Hi LAC1021. Thanks for taking the time to review your round with us.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us. In order to keep the greens manicured to golfers expectations, it is needed to aeriate the greens two times per year, unfortunately you can't simply do it in the should season both times, so it causes us needing to do it at least once in peak season. We will ensure all feedback is shared with the Club Director. Our greens will be healed in the next 4 days, I hope to see you return for another round once healed!

Hi Titus2604236. Thanks for taking the time to review your round with us.

We're sorry to hear you don't feel the course is held in the same regard as before. Hidden Lake is by far the best value course in the area, and we certainly have significant desire to keep it as the best conditioned course to go along with that. If there is ever a time to chat through any of your feedback further, please come see us.
