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.

This course could have been a joy to play had it not been for the bone dry aerified greens that had absolutely no top dressing. It is also unconscionable for a course to charge full peak rates in this condition. I would not have even made the tee time had there been a warning about the punched greens.

Old Hickory is one of the better courses I play on a regular basis. Once or twice during Spring/Summer and also Fall/Winter. The fees are a little higher than the rates we pay at our home course. But in the foursome I play with we think it's worth it. We treat ourselves to Old Hickory whenever We can. We play somewhere every Saturday of the year weather permitting. There was a lot of rain the week before we played so it was cart path only. But other than that the course was in good condition as they always keep it in shape.

6 HOUR WEEKDAY ROUND!!! There's no excuse - and reading Yelp! reviews the pace of play issue @ this course has been ongoing for 5 years. There's clearly no interest in maintaining any pace of play @ this course - sending out a single in between a small outing and 4somes, letting the outing clog up the course, really an embarrassment - Raspberry Management needs to address this. I can't say anything else about this course, the pace was that bad. Literally 6 hours on a Thursday. SMH

The fairways are nice and the layout is challenging. Tee Boxes were ok, very disappointed in the greens the aeration looked to be a few weeks old but there were numerous greens that were in bad shape with larger gashes, significant bumps etc. probably lost 6-8 strokes putting because of the greens conditions. All I can say is that the course generally looked more like a municipal course and not one for the price paid. I have played here four or five times and it appears to have gone down hill. Not sure I would pay this price again.

It would have been nice to have been informed that the greens had been aerated prior to getting to the making it to the first green. For the condition of the greens the rate should have been half of what I was charged.

Course in very good condition from tee to green. I liked the layout and great views from each tee....crosscut fairways, bunkers in great shape, greens rolled true and held good shots. Pace of play was just over 3 hours. Highly recommend this course and will play again when I'm in the area.

Fairways are tight and tree-lined on most holes. Course condition is above average for this time of year. Greens rolled pretty good but a few were bumpy. Strangely enough, the course does not have a viable driving range, can only hit irons, otherwise can only hit woods into a net. Not well kept in driving range area for a high-end course. Long distance from clubhouse to first tee is very strange and not well marked. There are things to live about this course, but it needs some variety rather than every hole having tree lined fairways. Overall, pretty challenging. Last hole plays over 600 yards from second set -- birdied it for the first time.

Course was in excellent condition & the greens had a great pace to them. The only issue was some of the greens were not completely filled in yet from the last aeration. Being the 1st time playing this course I should have got a course book, because knowledge of where to place the ball could have made a difference in my scoring. Will play this course again.
