A Look at the History of Hidden Hills Golf Club

Located in Jacksonville’s Arlington neighborhood, Hidden Hills Golf Club was home to the Greater Jacksonville Open in the 1970s. A precursor to today’s THE PLAYERS Championship, featured winners of the tournament include Gary Player and Tony Jacklin.

In 1986, Arnold Palmer, taking advantage of the club’s rolling hills and peaks and making it one of the highest points in Jacksonville, redesigned the 6,892-yard course. On February 1, 2017, the private club opened to the public, welcoming locals and visitors to the fairways.

What to Expect on the Course

When you take to the course, you’ll notice a mix of ranges - one-third long holes, one-third medium length holes and one-third short holes.

Considered one of the most scenic holes on the course, the No. 8 –349 yards, Par-4, players are surrounded by pine and oak trees. Players can practice on the club’s driving range, putting green and practice sand bunker, but be sure to keep your eyes open for local wildlife along the course. With five sets of tees to choose from, this course provides options for championship golfers and beginners too. This course doesn’t shy away from making you use every club in your bag, so come prepared!

With the luscious trees lining the course and rolling hills throughout the fairways, it is easy to see how this historic course received its name – and its place within the Jacksonville community.
