So i just went and check out hickory hill only the front 9. Its a little muddy in the main areas of walking the course but not to bad. Except till you get around hole 5-9 its a mess not really play-able at all due to construction. They have back hoes and the ground all dug up its a dirty muddy mess some of the holes have baskets out laying on the ground.
I did not make it up in the woods cause i had the lady & dog with me but I'm sure its all mud.
I did drive over by where the Cabins where that area looks good and i noticed that they moved a few tee areas and baskets from last yr. Should be interesting.
If it was me i personally would not make a road trip down to play the course till either it got a few days before the event. Or just show up early on Friday and get a round or two in before the tournament starts.
I hope this helps out ppl.
Here are about 5 pictures for you from hole 5-9. In the one picture you can see the newer long cabins.http://www.flickr.com/photos/71985565@N ... otostream/
