Hidden Creek Re-Opening in Burleson

Hidden Creek Golf Course, Mark Brooks' track in Burleson, just south of Fort Worth, has reopened. The highly regarded layout had been closed since July while its greens were switched from bentgrass to bermudagrass.

Bentgrass is very difficult to grow in hot climates, and many golf courses in Texas that do use bentgrass have some sort of cooling system installed under their greens to keep the roots cool.

Hidden Creek's greens won't roll as true or as smoothly as they would with quality bentgrass, but with bermudagrass now in place there should be fewer times when the greens aren't in top shape.
