Old Hickory golf course first opened for play in 1992. The course was designed by Bill McChesney.
Old Hickory is a hilly, course built by removing as few trees as possible from a hilly, wooded area. The course has a number of short holes to include four par-4s under 300-yards. The 2 long holes in the layout are 550-yards each, both double doglegs. The front nine is rolling with plenty of elevation changes. The back nine is downright hilly and comparatively mean.
#12 is a long hole with a large lake to the left.
#16 is a 435-yard par-5 that has a left-to-right sloping, uphill fairway that doglegs right thorough a narrow opening in a grove to a protected green.
Old Hickory Golf Course plays to 5,805 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 68.2 with a slope rating of 120.
Blue tees: par-72, 5,805 yards, 68.2/120
White tees: par-72, 5,545 yards.
Red tees: par-72, 4,705 yards.

Awful, awful management. Unless you enjoy someone out of control, yelling at you.
My husband and I visited Old Hickory Golf Course for the first time and had a nice round of golf... But as we was leaving, we were confronted in our car by an older woman (who was apparently the owner) started yelling at us for "driving through mud."
We had no idea what she was talking about and told her we hadn't seen any mud. I apologized explaining this was our first time at the course and we didn't mean to do anything wrong. She ignored my apology. My husband went back to see where this "mud" was and she followed him back yelling at him and called him STUPID!!! ...seriously, who does that? Yes, where there was some tall grass dampness and mud could be seen when standing directly over it. So, my husband apologized again. That apparently wasn't good enough, she kept yelling. Really who is that rude? especially management. She proceeded to tell us not to come back since we "didn't respect the golf course" As if we would after witnessing here berserk manner. We will never go back. Sing she doesn't respect her customers.... So rude. I couldn't believe it. She turned what had been a pleasant, not spectacular, but pleasant day of golf into a horrible experience. Shame on Old Hickory, forever now em-blazed in my mind as Old Bitchory. Be forwarded.
In case you are still wondering, no, I do not recommend Old Bitchory.
