Thanks for providing a nice outing
From central Fl.
A friend recommended the course to us and we came here to try it it. Camped at Hawe Creek and played here for the first time. The staff was outstanding, since the back was being worked on she suggested we play the front, go to lunch and play the back. It worked out great. Course typical SC., dog legs, up and downs and great fairways. The greens were a little stressed and holes a bit rough on the edges but I would come back in a heart beat. Also great water crossings.
Was unable to play due to rain . Staff was nice
Did say we could try to play the next day but today to far to drive . Maybe next time . 6.00 buck lost to the course.
Have played this course several times over the past 4 yrs. This is the worst condition I've seen and it is borderline unplayable. Tee boxes are poor, fairways play like first cut on good course, greens were horrible. Sandy, patchy inconsistent. Bunkers are barren, mud pits. Pace of play was slow. Course manager did try to help keep groups moving. Staff was friendly. Just wish they would attend to waht was once a nice course.
Staff friendly as usual, fairways in great shape. Greens were a little bumpy due to recent aeration but putted okay.
We’ve played several times here at Hickory Knob. We enjoy it’s challenges and always greater with a smile in the pro shop. Course is in good condition.
The course is in excellent shape. The fairways and greens are outstanding. The only thing wrong with course is the lack of sand in the bunkers.
Usually find state park courses a good value and average course design and conditions. Course layout has too many poorly designed holes. Bunkering was good, but greens were largely uninteresting, Definitely need to hit the ball straight. Conditions weren’t horrible but nothing to write home about,. For $25, you got what you paid for.
Nice course Masters week
Staff polite , course in great shape , carts in good condition, rakes missing in sand traps COVID but sand bottles on carts everyone touches !!! New concrete on cart paths !!!
I love playing golf near the lake and I can’t believe it took me this long to visit Hickory Knob. The course has plenty of beautiful views overlooking the lake along with the picturesque fairways made loosing balls in the water worth it. I will definitely be back many times.
