February Golf

Overall, a good experience. Biggest controllable negative, goose droppings on greens and fairways. This should have been addressed, at least on the greens. Cart path only and being so early in the season probable played in a part in the slow pace of play. we were a foursome moving along pretty good. we have two foursomes in front of us, the lead of which was causing the tie up. No marshal on duty. Can't really complain about course condition. It's the beginning of February. With that in consideration, conditions were good. Young man in the pro shop was very nice and accommodating. Price seems high considering what season we are in.

A great place to play

In anticipation of an upcoming event, I played this course from the tips. I am an 11.2 index so this was very challenging. The improvements that have been made and are continuing to be made make this an outstanding course to play in this area. We have many options around Hickory Stick but they have raised their game to the top!

Course was fine, but the rest was horrible

So apparently wearing a collared shirt is a thing for them, even though the shirt I was wearing DID have a collar. More like a TW shirt. Have worn it at multiple courses that require collared shirt. No big deal. Not enough though. So fine…$71 becomes $150 to buy a shirt that also did not have a collar but had their logo, so it was fine. At the turn they have no food except premade ham sandwich and they don’t even have mayo….so $150 plus food and can’t get mayo on a dry ham sandwich.
Course was fine, not great but if you want something to eat, bring your own.

Great Round of Golf.

Course was in great condition for so early in the season. Facilites and course conditions have improved significantly under new ownership.

Great overall condition for the $

I make the drive to Hickory Stick at least a couple times a year because I enjoy the layout and the overall conditions are great for the price. My only complaint is that the greens usually have a lot of damage from unrepaired ball marks and the sheer amount of play they get. However, they are receptive and faster than average IMO.
