Hidden Creek Golf Club
Township, NJ - Opened 2002 (18 Holes)

Reminiscent of the heathland courses surrounding London, Hidden Creek’s native landscape consists of rolling sandy terrain covered in pine trees, oak scrub, wild blueberries and false heather. The routing meanders across the soft, yet varied topography to create great diversity in the green settings. Meanwhile, mounds and crossing hazards bounded by wispy fescues provide character. As my first project under Bill & Ben, one of my main responsibilities was to create the mounds and ridges that help define Hidden Creek. Among my early feature shaping duties for the C&C team were the bunkering surrounding the 220 yard Redan fourth and the eighth green with its formidable central mound, proposed by Ben and capable of deflecting balls in all directions.
