Nice Course - skimpy amenities

I really liked the scenic views and layout amongst some fairly steep hills. Fairways and greens were in very good mid-summer condition, and other than a bit of slow play, the game was great with reasonable greens fees! My only recommendation is to improve some of the basic amenities on the course. We played on a pretty warm day (1 August), and there were no drinking water coolers on the course, no beverage service (via roving cart), and ball washers had no towels and either no water or water from last year that smelled awful.

Bad Weather

Upon calling the course to check on weather, Mark was very helpful in describing. This helped to avoid unnecessary trip.

A bunch of positives with this course including that it was very well maintained along with consistent greens. One negative was that the course was overbooked. Pace of play was on the slow side and a lot of waiting around happened.

Solid track and great staff

Played the first time and found the staff friendly and the course conditions in excellent shape. Just moved here from the East coast and Hickory Sticks is the best track I've played to date since we moved. Tees, fairways, and the greens were very well maintained and the pace of play was fine. A bit out of the way but well worth the extra travel time. Looking forward to playing again soon.
