Hidden Meadows Golf Club - North Course -- Challenging, Short Course
Review by: Dan If you are looking to practice your short game then this a decent course for it. Overall the course is pretty short. You will only need you woods on three holes, if you dare. The holes are line with trees and bushes and require very accurate shots. Most people will lose more balls than they find, but if you have time and walk along the trees and bushes you can find a number of balls. I like to go to this course when I only have a couple of hours and a couple of bucks. It is very cheap, $10, for 9 holes, it has a driving range and short game practice area, and because it requires accurate shots not as many people play it. Most people opt for the South course. I am giving it three stars because it is challenging enough so that if you get sloppy you will pay the price by losing your ball, and it is also a great deal if you only want to play 9.

Cress Creek Country Club -- Diamond in the rough
Review by: Arnie P. This is one of the old american style courses that on the surface seems benign until you take the route and discover the well placed traps, and mature trees that from the tee look beautiful then loom larger than a 10 story building just because you're 2 feet off the fairway. The greens are smooth fast and hard making the normal wedge or short iron shot play like a 2 iron approach. Putting is dream like on these velvet surfaces, rolling true and making reading a little adventure. AFter a few times you can understand the nuances of where the breaks go to and where to aim to try to assure you won't 3 putt. Play from the blues at 6300 yards is almost more challenging than the back tees because of the seemingly shorter approaches that that harder greens won't accept like your muni at home. It's in great shape after a rennovation due to the clubhouse reconstruction where infrastructure was upgraded and a few improvements are being made to 1, 9, 10 and the practice range. Kudos to the grounds staff for a great job.
