Beaver Creek divides Old Hickory Golf Club with nine holes sitting north of the creek and nine holes south. The course has a classic parkland layout that plays across gently rolling hills. The fairways were cut through forests of mature hardwoods but they are wide and carefully sculpted to direct balls toward the middle. Skillful players could even try to use the contours to their advantage. Each hole has a bunkers but the bunkering is not excessive. In addition to the mounding and bunkering, the undulating terrain provides natural elevation changes. The golf course finishes with what is arguably its toughest hole. This monster par 5 is 620 yards from the back tees. It requires a drive over a ravine with a natural waste area to the left. Many consider it to be the toughest golf hole in northern Virginia.

Good Weather, Good Conditions, Great Deal/price, EXCEPT...

There was a shotgun tourney started 30 mins before my tee time...unusual to me. Two groups ahead of me, foursome playing best ball and terribly slow. Group ahead of me, two guys two girls, worse...course is not for lessons nor loud music. It took 50 mins for the group behind me, a fivesome to catch up. Didnt know courses allowed that anywhere. Greens in pretty good shape but patrons don't repair their ball marks (nor rake the bunkers). Leaf-blowers needed on some fairways. No starter, no marshal...took over 4 1/2 hrs for the round.

Great Layout

I was mildly impressed with the maintenance and overall condition of Old Hickory. The greens were in very good shape, fairways and tee boxes much improved from just 3-4 weeks ago. The layout is fantastic. Lots of doglegs and elevation changes. As always, the pro shop staff were very helpful and respectful. I look forward to playing Old Hickory more.

Another Nice Day at Old Hickory

I really like this course. Absolutely professional staff as is usual with the Raspberry brand. Drink cart was out there and appreciated. Greens have improved quite a bit since I played it 2 years ago with consistent, decent speed for a public course. Tees were beaten up a bit as was the fairways. Bunkers were of varying quality. It would be hard to play the ball down here. Still, it's a great layout and value.

Waste of your money

Course is in terrible condition. Tee boxes are horrible, fairway is terrible, pace of play is terrible, for 97 dollars it’s a rip off.

Deserves more!!!

Played course many times over 15 years. Was beautifully maintained for a lot of years. However, over last 4/5 years maintenance seemed almost non-existent. Last fall (2021) it appeared they began putting some effort and money back into play. I think only a reasonable amount of progress can be made over the course of a particular growing season. Hence, my low ratings. It’s a great golf tract. It deserves attention to detail. Please continue your efforts to restore this golf course to where it was in past years. If you do that they will come.

Nice Layout, enjoyed the round

Course conditions were good, better than I expected. Greens putt true to the line. Most greens have multiple tiers and the pin placements were difficult but that made it more fun and challenging. Will come back and play again, now that I know the course layout and green slopes. Would definitely recommend playing.

Conditions need imporving

I imagine its been overplayed or lacking maintenance resources for upkeep. Did not look like the course it once was. Tee boxes need help, rough is full of weeds, greens need some work.
