Best Public Course in WNY

Best public course in WNY ... nothing else is really all that close in terms of layout and conditioning.

Fall rates are decent at Hickory Stick and despite recent rain the course was dry and the greens are rolling fast and true.

Not a boring course at all

Great gourde for me and the kiddo on his day off school. Just the right challenge. Wonderful layout. Friendly staff all around. Chrissy was amazing in the restaurant. I recommend this course to anyone.

Back 9 Twice

First time back this year, really enjoy the track but a little disheartening to find front 9 under maintenance. No question that a quality course needs to be maintained. Would be nice to know with an alert on the hot deal prior to confirming.

Course was in great condition greens were fast even after a light rain. This course for the money is great value. Don’t let the tee boxes scare you the white at 6300 is very manageable. Worst part of our day was a player in another group complaining about the ability of the group ahead then proceeding to spend most of the day looking for balls with his group.

Definitely will play again

Great golf course definitely will be back. Well maintained as expected for the price. Only complaint about the day is that the marshall didn't enforce any pace of play so the day was longer than it should have been.

love to play ..

really enjoyed the course .. although for some reason the members in front of us feel that fixing ball marks on the greens is beneath them .. some blind shots due to tall reeds but really enjoy the challenge ..

Great layout

Great layout; great conditions but play was slow due to one foursome holding up the entire field. To management's credit, a ranger visited with the foursome and moved it ahead a bit more quickly but still a 5 hour round. The problem may be the course is challenging beyond the skill set of the golfers. It's important to play from the tees that match the skill of some golfers. Course from the green tees plays almost 6,000 yds, but with green tee yardage noted at the bottom of the scorecard, many players associate the green tees with most forward (red/women's) tees. Too bad as the course plays plenty tough from 6,000 yds.!

Always Fun

Playing here is always fun. The tees had been punched and the fairways were a tad long and sponge. Apart from that, a great day had by all.
