Love this course!
Only negative on this date was that the first 4-5 greens had narrow bare tracks carved into them by an obviously bad green mower. It seemed to interfere with some puts for sure. I’m certain it will repair over a week or two.
Regardless, I suggest this course to all my friends!

They would play this course again.

Usually this course is great. The greens were garbage. Just aerated and the first 5 had big stripes across the greens every 2-3’ which made putting atrocious. The rest of the greens had sand all over them and were just dirty and hard to putt. Save your money and try this. Purse later this year.

A friend of mine and I booked this course via the golf now app for $42 a piece to play 18 holes yesterday. I drove 35 minutes to get there while my friend drove 90 minutes. After arriving at 8:15am we were told by staff that we could only play on the back 9 holes due to the first 4 holes on the front being aerated. Staff member then told us to check back with him after we golf the back 9 as there might be a chance we could golf the front 9. After checking back in after 9 holes we were told that last week one of the mowers leaked hydraulic fluid all over the first 4 holes and we would have to play the back 9 again. By this time the parking lot was 3/4 full and there was a line of 8 people waiting to start on hole 10. So we left and played Valle Vista.

We will never golf this course again. I feel the staff was very unprofessional and disrespectful by not letting us know ahead of time of the issues and that we might only be able to play the back 9. My friend drove a long way to meet me there to play. Obviously they just wanted our $84. At the very least they could have offered us half of our money back.

I live in southern Indiana and have played Hickory Stick about 4-6 times past couple of years with the recent one being in April 2019. I have never found fairways and greens on this course in bad shape, it’s always flawless and challenging. Greens are some of the best greens in the area.

Improvement ideas - #2 is a odd hole with no character just a straight up par 4.
#5 is way too long for a par 4, this hole is already extremely tough due to the long bunker on the left and the elevated green.
Bunkers on the course need some serious repairing, they have been in pretty bad shape now for over a year.

I would have rated this course a 5 star if bunkers were all operational, I would still play this course again soon because of the challenge and beauty it is!

Excellent layout and very nice conditions for March golf. I imagine it’s absolutely awesome to play in the summer. I’m pretty picky when it comes to golf courses but this is one of my favorites in in greater Indianapolis area. My group from Grand Rapids MI will be back! Only downfall was poorly marked tee boxes and yardage on course.

They would play this course again.
