Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6721 yards
Slope 136
Rating 72.6

There are two 18-hole courses available at the Hickory Valley Golf Club, the Presidential and the Ambassador. The Presidential is the flagship course and it is also the longer and tougher of the two. The layout incorporates nine of the club's original 27 holes. The Presidential is nearly 300 yards longer than its sister course at 6,721 yards from the championship tees. The golf course has a nice balance of player-friendly features and challenging hazards. The wide fairways are quite forgiving, while the large, undulating greens are framed with bunkers. The signature hole is the par-4 second, which gently doglegs right, requiring a long and accurate tee shot. You're not out of trouble yet though, you'll still have to face the heavily bunkered green that also has a pond to the right.

Don’t play in their Turkey Shoot

Don’t expect to win by posting a legitimate score. You can only win by being a loser and not playing by the rules. Would not recommend to anyone.

Poor management

This course is poorly managed. We waited on 1st tee while foursome in front walked off distances, played out of order etc until finally I went back to starter to ask if they had ranger. They sent someone to talk to them. Improved for a few holes then went track to snails pace. Quit playing after 3hrs to get through 10 holes. Talked to guy at front desk who acknowledged they are poorly run but basically said nothing the could do. Left my name and number for a response from his management and never got a response. Oh and he said basically if you purchased on Golfnow they don’t care cause they are making nothing off hot deals. I didn’t purchase the rounds off Golfnow but you should know how they feel about Golfnow customers.

Twosomes

I golfed as a part of a fairly slow foursome. That’s on us. But it was frustrating to have twosome after twosome come up behind and want to play through. Had they been paired into foursomes, there would’ve been no issue.

Otherwise, we loved the course. We will definitely come again. Please consider this honest feedback from a friend.

Great course, great greens average fairways

I have played this course for over 15 years. I really enjoy the layout and the staff is always friendly. The Presidential course has always been the course with the best greens and great fairways. So, I was a little disappointed to see the fairways with bare spots and brown grass.

Hopefully the greens keeper can figure it out for next year.

Track to be played

The presidential at hickory valley is a must play for the golf enthusiast in the area. I thought the greens were in fantastic shape last Saturday (09/02) with some tough pins. It was a lot of fun. You can get pretty upset with yourself on the back 9 considering how tight a few of the holes are, but if you bring the right attitude, you can have a great time here. Love how the holes meander around the creek. Some really pretty and fun par threes.

Great layout. Not ridiculous tough, but not easy either. Some opened fairways, some tight, most greens are decent sized but pretty undulating
