Detailed description of Hickory Valley Golf Club, Ambassador Course

Hickory Valley Golf Club is a Public, 36 hole golf facility located in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania. The facility has two 18-hole championship golf courses. They are The Ambassador Course and The Presidential Course.

The Ambassador Course opened for play in 1968.

The Ambassador Course features narrow, tree-lined fairways and small greens. Although this course is not very long, you'll need every club in your bag. The fairways average twenty-five yards wide and the rough can get deep in certain areas. Although there is minimal bunkering on this course, you'll need to avoid the large hickory trees and a river that meanders through the layout and affects play on nine holes.

Although shorter in length at 6,450 yards than the newer Presidential Course (1996), the Ambassador more than makes up for it in a classic mature design. What seems benign on the scorecard is not the case, as the routing weaves its way through massive 70 foot high hardwoods to gently rolling greens that slope from back to front.

Continuously praised from both the occasional as well as the accomplished golfer, the Ambassador is a course for all ages and levels of ability. The Ambassador offers impeccably conditioned fairways and some of the smallest and smoothest putting surfaces in the region.

The Ambassador can play rough, including the 610-yard par five 9th hole and the 465 yard par four 13, where many a quality round has evaporated.
