Rating 74.5

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.

Late in the season

I love this course, so it is hard to see the 20+ day 100 degrees really took its toll on the fairways and greens. :( I have faith that the staff will work hard to get the course back into shape for the 2021 season.

Course in awful condition, diseased Greens, Weeds, mud everywhere.

This used to be one of my favorite courses. Now it is in terrible shape. Every green is diseased, most of the fairways are all weeds, horrible. Terrible shape and a real shame.

Course is expensive for its condition

Course had a lot of rough patches, dried up, brown spots, on all - tee box, fairways and some greens.
Not sure why they are charging so much for this course in its current condition.

Staff are friendly.
Was slightly disappoiinted that they were not providing individual carts, though they were charging $90 for a round. I guess if you have one reservation for two, they force you to go on one cart !

Landscaping please

Course has a fun and interesting layout, but no landscaping maintenance. Fairways with grass taller than rough, weeds throughout, crabgrass patches on the greens.

Expensive For What?

The good:

This course is a challenge from the tips, fun track to prep for tourney golf.

The bad:

80$ round... so many other course for a lot less
Crab grass on most greens
Burned out fairways
List goes on...

I wouldn’t play again. It’s a classic neighborhood built around a course type place.

Unfortunately Poorly Kept

Aug 2020 - Fairways had lots of burnt spots. Greens have been torn up by the geese. Tee boxes lacked grass. The course has potential but they don't seem to be doing enough to repair the issues. Design is unique for the area and is a fun course, but not necessarily worth the $65+ they are charging.
If they repaired the fairways and greens the course would be worth a visit for the price but until then I wouldnt recommend.

This course is in horrible shape

I’ve been to Old Hickory many times and unfortunately the conditions are absolutely atrocious this summer. Management doesn’t seem interested in caring for any part of the course - tee boxes, fairways, and greens are all in horrible shape. The worst part of my experience today is they charged me $60 for 9 holes. I don’t think I’ll go back any time soon.

Great layout, horrible conditions

The layout of the course is extremely well thought out and offers a challenge. You have to be strategic on you slot selections and be fairly accurate. Unfortunately the course conditions were awful. The fairway wasn't that bad, but the greens are in bad shape. Once they improve the greens, the course will be back to it's usual 4 star rating course.

Do Not Play This Course!!!!!!

My father and I traveled from NC to DC for a golf trip to play a few courses with my brother. This course is horrendous. We only play the first hole. The tee box was damaged and had fungus all over it. The fairway looked like a tank had driven over it. We went back to the clubhouse to get a refund. They promptly gave us a refund which made me think they knew how rough the course was. They were nice about the refund and courteous during the entire exchange. I would not recommend this course until they do major maintenance.
