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.

From the registration to the end of play the staff and course were all that was expected of a well organized establishment. We were informed of a mini-tourney which was in-play and that we would be following it. Paced of play was not hindered and staff was available to ascertain the tee time of pending players. We were able to tee off as scheduled. The course itself was well maintained and played with well cared fairways and greens.

A good golf course, but extremely slow pace of play. We played the first four holes in an hour and forty-five minutes. Gave up on the front and drove the cart until we found an open hole, which was the 13th and played the last six holes unimpeded in about an hour. So, we played ten holes in around three hours, then quit. No ranger on the course. Bunkers in very poor condition. Mostly hard pan and some with a considerable amount of water in them. Greens, fairways and tees OK. As is typical of a public access course, divots not filled and ball marks not repaired. Massive obstructions and damage left by Canadian Geese, which could be remedied by having a Border Collie on staff. We get the impression that the club is in financial trouble, due to the lack of maintenance and cramming of players leading to the slow play.

I really enjoyed the layout and will definitely play again but parts of the course need a lot of work. Pros of the course were the tight tee shots, requirement to work the ball often, tough pin spots with a lot of shelf greens.

Cons: Tee boxes were aerated recently but some were in really bad shape. We were playing the back tees and there were a few holes on the back nine where they didnt have the stones out for the back tees? Fairways and greens were in good shape, greens were on the slow side but the holes were cut very sloppy. Biggest complaint was the inconsistency of the bunkers. Some were packed tight, some fluffy, some full of large rocks with no sand at all. There were also multiple holes where it looks like there use to be greenside bunkers but they tried to replace them with grass and then gave up. These areas were completely unplayable but also not marked as ground under repair. Course attracts a lot of hackers, not sure why, but we had an 11am tee time on a Saturday and it was a 5 hour round.

Overall, I'll play again because the layout is great and very challenging but I hope they continue to put money back into the course and make some much needed improvements.

Just had the pleasure of playing the other Gary Player course... Raspberry Falls on Saturday. It was interesting to see the similarities. The greens at Hickory were in much better condition and fast. Arrived after a tournament and had the place to myself. Course is just as challenging as Raspberry Falls.. No doubt I'll be returning.

Always worth the drive to this course - great layout and conditions very good although front nine always a little damp for some reason. Always good luck with getting matched up (played as a single) with good groups. Pace of play pretty good with a little wait on most holes - usually not a big deal, but this was at 6:40am - the promise that the members out front would play fast really didn't happen. Warm up/range area in poor condition, from mats to balls - group almost got hit a couple of times on 5th hole maybe due to huge holes in range netting. Bar/restaurant understaffed, although very friendly; regulars clearly get preferential treatment.

Will be back due to layout and challenge, but management group should put a couple of bucks back into the place.

Course was in good shape -- not great, but good. Greens were in good shape and the ball rolled nicely. Fairways and tees also good. The rough is inconsistent -- high in some areas and dead in others. Bunkers were OK, not great. This is a challenging course and the conditions are better than other courses in the area.

It's a fun, challenging course. My only gripe is that the range is in bad shape. I get it that the lack of space means hitting driver into a net but the mats are a joke. And they no longer include range balls so we just hit balls into the net to warm up. That's not good.

This course is in horrible shape. No notice on GolfNow that the greens were just aerated. Even aside from the aeration, the greens are in really rough shape. Gouges, burned spots, old holes cut that haven’t been filled in. The bunkers are full of water or otherwise gouged out by water flow and rock hard in other places. Most of the “rough” is just dried out dirt. Fairways are dried out/barren and full of divots. No way this should be anywhere near $75.
