Old Hickory Country Club in Beaver Dam is situated on land that was used simply as pasture for grazing cattle and sheep before it was transformed into a basic, but interesting nine-hole golf course by Scottish designer Tom Bendelow. Seeing the potential of the terrain, the course was later expanded into 18 holes by Robert Greaves. The golf course originally opened for play in 1920, which has given it plenty of time to mature into the challenging course it is today. Towering oak and hickory trees line the fairways and there are 30 bunkers strategically placed throughout the golf course, most heavily along the greensides. The gently rolling terrain provides subtle but tricky contours. Long, straight drives will be generously rewarded at Old Hickory Country Club, and accuracy is also essential for doing well.

Absolutely beautiful course

Rolling green fairways, mature trees, charming views. No houses on course. Holes play long for me. Several elevated greens, occasional water.. challenging and lots of fun. Bar menu was very limited. Staff friendly.

Nice track, very good condition, FAST greens !!

Just passing though the area and chose Old Hickory almost by chance....happy with the choice.
Very nice course - the tees, fairways and especially the greens were in great condition.
It's open to the public, but definitely has the Country Club feel about it. Great value for money.

The course was in great shape, and well taken care of. The staff was very friendly. The green were good speed, with few to no divots. The topography is rolling and challenging. Will definitely come back!

Can not pass up Old Hickory

Old Hickory is a gem. Bought a voucher off of group golfer and should've had to have paid more. It was unbelievable how great that value was. Wish I lived closer. Definitely a place to play again but needs to be paired up with something else for me to drive an hour and 45 mins.

There is some definitely some Lawosina Links in this design. Course is a old school tree lined fairways with some dog legs both ways. The 10th hole is an outstanding dog leg left with a perched up green. Green speeds were amazing for a $50-$60 dollar course. Loved the par 3 7th hole. The views and scenario in that area is so good. Dont go long or its 3 putt city. The par 4 2nd is a cool hole with a tree in the middle of the a fairway (stay right) and a narrow but long green.

My only beef was the par 4 8th hole. If they took some trees down on the left side it would make it a cool risk reward par 4, but instead you are first to hit a mid to maybe long iron off the tee.

Besides that this place is so good. A terrific value and a must play for everyone in Wisconsin.
