Great Local Course

I have been playing here a lot recently as it is close to home, and have really been enjoying my rounds. The course superintendent and his staff are doing a great job keeping the leaves off the short grass and surrounding rough. Temperature permitting they have been changing hole locations and rolling the greens, which is more than I would ask for on January 7. Pace of play was about 3 hours for 18 holes.

This course is a great value, and I look forward to many more rounds here this year.

Fun, enjoyable course

I played 9 on this visit so I could make it back home to watch the UK football game. Gentleman in the clubhouse was very nice. I believe I heard someone call him Jeff. Course was in nice shape. Ran into one slower threesome when I arrived on the 2nd tee box. They waited for me on the 4th tee and let me play through. Knocked out 9 in about an hour & 40 minutes. Greens rolled nicely and were pretty quick. They also looked great. I’m not much of a long ball hitter but the fairways will run if you can hit them and there’s reachable par 5s.

There are some holes with elevation changes. One or two doglegs that you can shorten if you are willing to fly a tree to cut the corner.

I’ll be back many more times to play the course. It’s just a few minutes from my house so I’m addition to be a fun, challenging course; it’s a short drive to/from the course for me which is always nice.

I live right between this course and one other. I love that Hickory Sticks will let you book a tee time as a single. The other course within minutes of me will only allow you to book a tee time if you have a 3 or 4some. I don’t have many friends that play golf so I end up hitting courses alone quite a bit. Thank you Hickory Sticks for being accommodating for those of us that love this game but may not have any buddies that enjoy playing it.

They’re Back

Course was in EXCELLENT shape. Played a few times past year or so and it was average at best. They’ve definitively put some work into the course. Tee boxes were immaculate. Greens were very fast but true. Challenging but fair course. Some elevated tee boxes make for some scenic drives if you hit them well. I’ll be back.

Great value

This course offers good value. It is a fun but short course. I would have liked to see more bunkers and the bunkers that exist in better shape. However, the rest of the course looked good and the greens and tee boxes were well kept. Overall I would recommend to a friend.

Tight fairways, undulated greens, and uphill yardages make this course moderately challenging. A true master of their distance and course management will do well here.
Fairways need to be cut more regularly. Rough is good. Like the rough as much as the fairway

Course was in great shape.

This course was in top shape. I have played here many times before, and was shocked by how well it played. Everything was up to par with all other features, and the only negative was a slow pace for the first four holes. The group creating the delayed allowed us to play through on number five. After that, it was clean sailing. The course ranger was friendly and polite, and a joy to talk with on the course. We saw him about 10 times during the round. He was clearly on top of things. A great day of golf.
