Old Hickory Golf Club
Beaver Creek divides Old Hickory Golf Club with nine holes sitting north of the creek and nine holes south. The course has a classic parkland layout that plays across gently rolling hills. The fairways were cut through forests of mature hardwoods but they are wide and carefully sculpted to direct balls toward the middle. Skillful players could even try to use the contours to their advantage. Each hole has a bunkers but the bunkering is not excessive. In addition to the mounding and bunkering, the undulating terrain provides natural elevation changes. The golf course finishes with what is arguably its toughest hole. This monster par 5 is 620 yards from the back tees. It requires a drive over a ravine with a natural waste area to the left. Many consider it to be the toughest golf hole in northern Virginia.

Not ready yet
They had recently punched the greens so not true roll. Grass not growing in yet and course needed some time for that.
Always enjoy playing this course. Get'em straight score well, get off line, hold on to your hat.
Fantastic layout. Course in good condition for early spring . Tees & greens in good shape. Fairways coming in nicely for this fine of year.
Crowded but pace of play was ok. We will definitely play again
I though Old Hickory was in excellent shape for this time of the year. The Greens were fine, slightly slower than usual. The Fairways were great and the grass was growing and green. I am looking forward to playing again in the near future.
Course in Good Shape
Play here a few times a year. Played on a nice day at the beginning of March. Course was in pretty good shape for that time of year. Enjoyed the round!!
So much potential
I can't help but wonder whether the poor conditions were attributable to the winter weather and considerable rain in the last few weeks. The layout is top notch, but the course is in need of considerable work. It's going to take a lot of money, labor, time and sun to get this course where it deserves to be, and that, potentially, is one of the best public venues in NoVa.
A Soggy Round
Even though the course was soggy after it rained the previous day and that morning surprisingly the course, especially the green, held up well. Hopefully all the water goes a long way to a course in excellent condition in the spring.
I play this course very often, and since the summer the staff has done a really good job of getting it back in shape. Can't ever complain when you get to play golf in January, so the fact that it was wet (especially since we got snow on Tuesday that had melted) is really a non-factor here. Glad to see they are working so hard to get the course back!
A Regional Favorite
Old Hickory provides first class professional staff and an impeccably maintained course. From the pro shop that greets you upon arrival, including the early morning maintainers freshly mowing the greens, and culminating with an enthusiastic post round “ How’d it go?” as you return the clubhouse, every employee exudes genuine hospitality. I return here again and again for the challenging layout, the positive experience, and the value for the money
Old Hickory GC
