The course was in great shape for late November. The only thing was something the course can not do anything about. The wind was just too strong for a good round but it was fun.

Always in great shape and always a good test of golf. Pin placements can be tough especially on the par 5's. Little shelves on the greens which are generally large.

I’ve had the pleasure of playing here five times this season and it has always been a pleasure. The course is excellently maintained. The tee boxes, fairways and greens are the BEST around!

The practice areas are in great shape, however upon arrival for this last round the range was closed for major maintenance.

They also have the best fleet of golf carts I’ve seen, perfect condition and clean.

The only negative thing I can say @ Hickory Sticks is I found it disappointing that they use frozen burger patties and fries in their dining room. The clubhouse is very nice, I expected everything to carry over into the dining room, which looked great and had friendly staff too. Every other course I’ve been too puts the extra effort into their basic foods too, hand made patties, fresh cut fries, etc...

I plan to definitely play at least three rounds here every year!

Always enjoy playing Hickory Stick as it has a great layout and size to play from plus 7000 yards. Playing this late in the year you expect the greens to be arreated but after 2 weeks greens were slow and top dressing made for challenging putting. But the course was in great shape and it was a pleasure to play. Looking forward to coming back next year.

This course was highly rated, so I had high expectations, It exceeded expectations! From the greeting in the parking lot to the cart return. The conditioning, the layout, the challenge (tough, but very fair) I liked this course a lot. If it had a view of the Falls, or Lake Ontario, or something like that, it would easily make the Golf Magazine top 100 in America list. Can't wait to play it again!

Planned a little golf getaway for my wife and I and another couple to the Niagara area. We're from the Toronto area and wanted to take in a Bisons game so I looked for a course on Golfnow and this gem popped up with a Hot Deal. The marshal, an 80 year old gentleman, took the time to give us a lot of tips about how to approach the course because there were a few blind tee shots due to elevation change.The round started off with a little rain but ended after the first hole. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the amenities are top notch. The course is very challenging and in excellent condition and I would like to attempt it from the blues next time. My wife's new favorite course. Can't wait to come back and play again.
