The course was in less than ideal condition . Fairways were wet and greens were just aerated. I've played here several times and this was by far the worst .

I played out at Hickory Stick on Sunday, September 3rd. Hickory Stick has always been one of my favorite courses to play. The layout is great and the greens always seems to be in great shape. My biggest problem with the course are the bunkers. I've never seen bunkers like this before at a course that is charging $50 to play. No sand whatsoever. Fairways and greens were still in great shape except for a few little spots, but I expect that this time of year. No issues with that at all. It was still a great day of golf. I will still go back and play there. I hope they plan on fixing the bunkers for next season.

Hickory Stick is one of my favorite courses to play in Southern Indiana. I chose to play the tips this time around, which makes it a completely different course. I have never played this course and been disappointed. The clubhouse staff isn't always the friendliest to those that aren't regulars or members, but the course makes up for that. I HIGHLY recommend Hickory Stick to golfers of all ages and abilities. They offer 4 different sets of tee boxes to accommodate all skill levels. Enjoy!

Great course. Staff was overly accommodating. Most courses in area were reduced to cart path only due to rain issues all week. This course drains extremely well. They were able to accommodate our group of 16 at the last minute. Fantastic course and outstanding professional staff. We will be back again next time we are in the Indy area. Hidden gem as it does not get the same publicity as courses on the northside of Indy.

First time we played this course and would go back in a minute. Great course, loved the links style and the various challenges throughout. Only one 'bathroom' on course and it was on the back nine which is bummer, but definitely the only drawback.

This is an excellent course with varying challenges. While the fairways are wide open and it's a challenge in itself to lose a golf ball, the traps and greens test your will (and your talent). Clever hazard locations and smaller than average greens make for difficult iron shots, and a challenging green will test your putting skills, but overall the course doesn't leave you feeling in over your head. This course is in great condition, and is maintained very well, but you certainly pay for it. Would definitely go again, but likely not for awhile.

We played as a foursome and although only novice golfers, we played at a pretty good pace. However, the foursome in front of us was extremely slow. At times they would spend upwards of 10 mins looking for their lost balls.

Course was in fairly good shape. Greens were in great shape. Only negative would be that course probably had too much watering and several fairways were too wet and it appeared that carts had gotten stuck in several places. Would prefer that the areas just short of the green would not be so damp. Otherwise, course in good shape for August.

A great course on Indy's Southside -- very challenging greens and huge fairways. Try to get one of the daily HOT DEAL tee times and you'll save big. Not sure if I would pay full price for this course ($49) when you can play twilight for $30 starting at 3 every day.

Really a nice course. There are only a couple holes that i would classify as boring. Each has its own personality.

The GPS on the cart shows distances to front, back, and middle, as well as landmarks such as bunkers.

The rolling fairways give lies you don't always get and tightly mown areas greenside will funnel some shots off and well away from the target.

The huge mounds throughout add a lot of character to a well manicured course.

One of the best courses in the Indianapolis/Greenwood area without a doubt. We will certainly be back.
