Course Review and Comments

HLCC is what I define as a "Comfortable Country Club". Enjoyable to play frequently and rewarding to good shots. It is a residential layout, so you wind through the Houndslake subdivision, which provides colorful flowers and trees as you play.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments HLCC is designed for the frequent golfer who enjoys a challenge, but also a "playable" course. Member length is average (6100 yds), green size is very good, hazards are present but not intimidating. If you keep the ball in play, you can score well.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Fairways and greens are well maintained. Greens are cut daily and rolled frequently go give a smooth roll. A restoration project is underway to improve the condition and drainage of the sand traps.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Pro shop staff is very friendly and helpful, as is the staff in the golfer's grill room. HLCC has a starter and a ranger to keep up the pace of play. Walking is optional 7 days a week, any time of day.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Both men's and women's locker rooms are good sized and maintained. Pro shop has a good selection of equipment and apparrel. Dining facilities are great.

Driving range has an elevated tee hitting into a valley, which makes it hard to determine exact distances when hitting. Putting green is huge with a varied surface for practicing all types of putts. Chipping area is limited.
