As always, Hickory was a great time.

Had a great round at the course. Weather stayed about 50 degrees and sunny with no wind. Course is in nice shape and staff was very friendly.

Course was in great shape.

This course was in top shape. I have played here many times before, and was shocked by how well it played. Everything was up to par with all other features, and the only negative was a slow pace for the first four holes. The group creating the delayed allowed us to play through on number five. After that, it was clean sailing. The course ranger was friendly and polite, and a joy to talk with on the course. We saw him about 10 times during the round. He was clearly on top of things. A great day of golf.

Nice course but slow pace

The course is in great condition. Greens were quite fast. Very challenging, fun to play course. Unfortunately the pace was very slow with waits required at virtually every hole. We got to know the groups in front and in back of us fairly well since we were all waiting on the same tee more than once. I have played the course before and had not experienced this slow play.

Wow, what a treat!

My wife and I played Hickory Sticks on a perfect clear, 80-ish summer Saturday. Never played here before. We knew the course would be hilly, and it certainly is. But the first 3 holes aren't terribly so, which gives a good warm up to the round. Other holes do go up or down, sometimes both in the same hole. But the shorter distances of some of the hillier holes (especially on the back nine) equalized the challenge of the hills. The primary exception to this notion is the long par-4 9th-hole, where you can't see the green from the tee, and you can't see how much climb you have in your very long second-shot approach. At 410 from the second-longest tees, it's a very long par 4, just barely short of par 5 status.

The tees, the greens and the fairways were all in excellent condition. The greens today ran very fast, and they have a lot of subtle breaks, so putting was a challenge. Staff was exceptionally friendly.

Our twosome was sandwiched amongst a line of foursomes, but we were off the course in 5 hours, which is average and appropriate. We didn't have to wait too long between most shots.

Food selections at the turn were pretty slim. Hot dogs and brats and sandwiches and packaged snacks.

We cannot wait to return to play again.

Poor Pace Of Play

Maybe having a starter or a ranger to keep the pace of play would be nice. Between the pace of play and the hack golfers who into you while in the middle of the fairway will stop me from playing here again, the only thing missing was a moron with a Bluetooth speaker. The best thing about the course was the friendly staff.

Looking great

I have been going to Hickory Sticks for around seven years now, and I can say that this is the best the course has ever looked. My best friend and I went to play on a Monday which meant a 25 dollar round with a cart, which is an amazing deal. I haven't been playing there as much recently these past couple of years, but I will definitely start to go back and play there more often with the way the course looked. Greens weren't incredibly fast, but they were rolling smooth with no bumps, and that's all you can ask for at a public course. Keep up the great work Hickory.

Hidden Gem

The new ownership and crew have done a tremendous job with the course. I love the solitude, and rolling terrain. The greens are some of the best I have played on this year. With the elevated greens the course provides an excellent challenge from the back two tees. I will be going back soon!
