Great day.

Great day at the course. Checked in a few mins late and still got out before a large "regulars" group. Still enjoyed the day even though the fairways were punched. Will be bk again!

During the fog season, you should not take orders online through Golfnow. As a visitor, I was not aware of conditions that were known to staff and regulars. The fog was unplayable and I have no visual memories of anything on the course from my front 9. I quit at the turn because of the lack of scenery and inability to see where any shot landed.

Great Course

Always a pleasure to play here. Not a easy course. And you can’t walk it. Unless your an iron man or woman..
Greens are always in great condition and the rest is always in really good condition even in mid summer.
Some holes like 3 have awesome views. Highly recommended

Hickory Sticks

Very nice course. I certainly play again. Excellent staff. Course is in great condition!!! They hosted a golf outing today so pace of play was extremely slow. We played 9 holes in 2:15. We called it quits after that and didn’t finish the back 9. Call ahead to avoid this the golf outings.
