Got us out early. Played 18 in 2:55 and the course looked great. Bunkers and tee boxes need some work. They did appear to be working on some tee boxes. Staff was super friendly and helpful.

This course is finally getting back into condition after several years of maintenance neglect.. greens are great condition. Fairways for the most part are pretty good.. still some issues off fairways /traps etc but well worth the GolfNow price.

I have not played this golf course in many years; it definitely is showing its wear. The tee boxes were not level, the sand traps seemed to be neglected. I understand the golf course business is perhaps suffering; with that said, it is still difficult to see a great layout be neglected.

The Hiddenbrooke Golf Course is one of the best courses in the Bay Area. The green fees are a little bit more on the expensive side so I don't play this course as often as I would want to. However, when I find some good deals, I do my best to play here with my brothers and friends.

The fairways are often narrow, and the greens offer some challenging hole locations. It's a good course to remind myself that I'm not a good golfer yet. But I can still hope.

Weather was cool and windy but the course was in great shape, greens were hard to judge the speed, seemed to be very variable. The wind made some holes very hard but that adds to the challenges on the course.

Evidently they are working to improve the course so several of the normal tee boxes where closed. The tee boxes that were open were in bad shape. Many times we had to search for a flat spot for our feet. No sand in bunkers, just dirt. Greens are slow but roll fairly true.

I always love this course: interesting layout and just hard enough. But in real need of some TLC: some bunkers are full of water, others rock hard. Tee boxes are uneven and barren of grass. Rough is not mowed, so really easy to lose a ball that is only slightly off the fairway. For the amount they charge, this course should be kept better than it is.

This was once a great course. It’s really depressing to see it in its current state of decay. Arnold would be disgusted. I don’t quite understand how a company with the pedigree of Troon can have a course like this in its portfolio. There is no longer someone to greet you at the bag drop so rather than leave my bag unattended I walk it in from the car. The range was never good (200yds. straight uphill) but now it’s a disgrace. There are no mats but there is very little grass. It takes some searching to find a position for your stance and the ball. It does, however, prepare you for your upcoming experience at the course’s tee boxes. The fairways are in respectable condition considering the wet winter we’ve had. The rough is US Open length. No fault there to the operators, again because of the severe winter. They’ll be mowed soon, I’m sure, but for now keep your eyes on drives that leave the fairway. My group found two dozen lost balls within 15’ of the fairways. Most courses in these days of dwindling golf revenues still put energy and dollars into the greens. Here competing grasses—poa?—have invaded. The landscaping that was once lush is now mostly weeds. The pond at the 16th green is nearly empty and quite ugly. They still have a plaque commemorating the LPGA events played at the once great track at the first tee box. Those were the days.

After mucho rain and only 3 days of sunshine...we decided to give it a shot (well numerous shots), and despite "cart path only", the fairways were very acceptable and the greens surprisingly fast and firm.. Weather sunny and a bit windy on front nine, but rain hung over and pelted us holes 10 thru 17.. But we toughed it out and the sun reappeared on the 18th tee. It was well worth it, and the babbling brooks and waterfalls were a nice addition.

Hiddenbrooke was once a gem of a golf course tucked away in the scenic hills outside of Vallejo Ca. The layout of the course is still great but the maintenance of the course has gone way down hill. Unless you can hit the ball in the fairway all the time you will spend to much time looking for your ball in the much to overgrown ruff. Bring your own sand for the bunkers because it is mostly hard clay. Sad that this course has been neglected especially when it is run by “Troon Golf.”

Brian!

Love this course. The layout is great with every hole has its own characteristics. The course is very challenging for beginners / intermediate golfers and it requires you to plan ahead and focus before each shot. It was my first time here and I was told to expect the worst. But somehow we managed to survive it with a pretty decent scores. I think this is a course that I will use for my personal benchmark in the future!

This Arnold Palmer designed course will challenge just about everyone. It has multiple forced carries and lots of hazards that will eat your golf balls if you stray off the fairway. Played from the correct tees it is a very enjoyable course. just know that any lapses in concentration will add some strokes to the score card.

It's my favorite SF Bay Area public course. There may (I repeat "may") be a couple others that rival the layout (although not all 18 holes) and natural beauty......but they are exorbitantly priced in comparison. I just love the course and will never tire of it. It's not the longest by any means, but the challenge, especially from the tips is wonderful. You must think and hit good shots. Very unforgiving but fair at the same time. If you play it for the first time, you'll have to overlook the less than quality bunkers (good sand is needed in most) and many of the teeboxes. They need work, but what you get for the money in terms of the course is too good to complain
