Good course

It is a good course, I didn't like students with the golf instructor come across and jumped in front of our group everything was fine before that. They was slow didn't care who you they was holding up. But the staff was great the food is good,the course was in great condition, overall it was a real good time. Bring your own beer they do not sell any at the course.

Ole Hickory

Ole Hickory seems to surprise us time and time again. The Flats were so good to us this time, I thought I was dreaming. The overall course was in immaculate shape, with a great deal of care and detail-oriented care. The hot dogs at the turn were so good, they make you want to tear up and cry. Ole Hickory Flats will have to be visited again soon...

Nothing Like the Flats

First of all, The Course was soaked like a sponge in a bathtub. Half of the bunkers were converted into swimming pools for the local squirrels. However, the tee boxes and greens were in great condition. The way we were playing, that’s all we needed. The pace of play was great, especially for a packed crowd on a December day. We will see the flats again next season.

Hickory

We have played this course multiple times and have been very pleased.
Today was a little different was held up by a foursome for the first 10 holes finally let our twosome play thru on 11. Pace was very slow for us but we both believe we play fast.
The other difference today was that the greens did not hold well at all, hit a 60 degree wedge in from 75 yards and it would bounce off the back. first we have seen of this but all in all great course and fun layout.

Late Fall disappointed

Played this course for the first time in late October. Greens had holes punched and were slow and bumpy. Every course I’ve ever played they do that at the end of September at the latest! Layout is bland. You get what you pay for I guess. Go down the road to River Greens!

Nice course in rural setting, BYOB

This course was pretty nice. Not too many traps, not too much water, mostly flat but with some interesting holes up & downhill. Pretty setting with trees and views. Not too crowded, so we could enjoy ourselves. Only complaint is lack of beer for sale. Wish I'd know before I got there... I could've brought my own.
