About The Course
Our golf course was built in 1999 by James Bassett and offers bent grass fairways (some of the best in the area), tees and greens. Water hazards come into play on 12 of the holes. Hidden Creek has a full-service range with practice area, restaurant and bar, and an outdoor pavilion for outings.
Hidden Creek has been owned since 2009 by the Floyd Young family who also have owned and operated Bluffton Golf Club since 1989. The Young family takes great pride in providing excellent guest services that are unmatched in this area.
Floyd has been a PGA Professional for more than 45 years. Both of our courses have fully stocked pro shops designed to meet all of our golfers’ equipment needs.
