Rating 74.5

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.

Much better shape than last year

I like this course: got some really interesting and fun holes. Greens and fairways were in good shape (far better than summer 2020). There are too many "Ground Under Repair" patches, But overall conditions are good. Staff was friendly and attentive, and while I didn't eat, they had some killer-smelling BBQ going outside the clubhouse.
BUT: the practice facility sucks. The range is a joke. (I know they can't do much about it, but but gotta be honest.) And they need new carts. From the burned, torn upholstery to the bald tires (we had a tire blow out on our cart on the 4th hole. They ran out a replacement and were very good about it, but the new cart balked going up hills.)
Otherwise, it's a great course.

They are bringing it back

Seems like management cares about bringing back Old Hickory. It’s looking good. Lot of work being done. Fairways are in nice shape. Bunkers still need time work. Greens are WAY better than last year.

Right direction

Last summer course was headed downhill. This spring brought a long waited change in direction with some attention to all areas of course. Fairways were the most significant upgrade. Not perfect yet, but a big difference, and appears they’re headed in right direction. Keep up the good work. An excellent track that deserves good hard work.

Needs a little TLC

Course just doesn’t stand up to the ‘premium’ product the price selects. Play it for a hot deal on a weekday. They are working hard on some major repair areas so the focus and awareness is there. Did get around in about 3hrs going back to front as a single on a Monday mid-morning time. Glad to see it. The clubhouse and staff friendly, comfortable and helpful as usual.

Welcome to spring

First round for the season and enjoyed it. Looks like the greens were airated a week ago which makes putting a challenge.
