Fathers Day outing

Course was great! Will be back. Courses like this on these busy days need a ranger to keep up the pace of play. Group in front of us had no clue about pace of play which made it very frustrating. I heard arguments between players, just not good course management.

Great course

Fun course out in the middle of nowhere. Very nice folks in the pro shop. Nice electric carts and almost deserted on a Thursday afternoon. Not super long course, but small greens made it a good challenge. Course, especially greens were in great shape. Only downside was they started league play at 5pm and we got bogged down as a result on the last 4 holes.

Always love going to Hickory Sticks. Love the course layout (especially the back 9). Probably my favorite course to go to in NKY. Also you never know what kind of wildlife you may encounter whether it be some turkeys walking along the wood line feeding or a deer darting across the fairway, it’s always a great time!

First time playing here and will defiantly be back. The course was in excellent condition, with some great views.
Rough was rough, so don't hit it in there. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good hot dog and cold beer.

Beautiful course

Awesome views from some elevated tees, played there many times, worth every dime. I used my credits from Golf Now this time normally around 35.00 to play.

Little bit of a drive out along the Ohio river on the Kentucky side would say across from New Richmond Ohio is about where it is. Would probably play there more if it was not such a haul.

Nice design, beautiful course!

I have played here several times through the years and I always really enjoy it. The course is challenging but not overly difficult. Amazing scenery! Hilly but good lies. Reasonably well maintained. Always friendly staff. Nice electric carts. Will be back!

Avoid senior Wednesday.

Course conditions were average for this time of year. The fairways had recently been aerated so there were plugs all over the fairways preventing good roll or a decent lie. Had to clear plugs to make a good swing or stand level. Pace of play was slow, as we were behind a few groups of slow driving, slow walking and slow playing old-timers. I still love the course and will play here often. Just not on Wednesday.
