Stick and Hack Official

Approved Golf Courses

Whether it’s for a regular weekend round or a destination weekend with friends, you can feel confident a Stick/Hack approved course will meet and exceed all of your expectations.

Free Course Certification

Stick and Hack approved courses are the golf meccas, local gems, and highly touted tracks that our members chose or nominate because they share an ethos consistent with Stick and Hack members.

Our certification process is different than most "Top lists" as they all have a Stick & Hack factor that makes them unique. We break it down into the following categories:

Course Conditions

How are the greens, tee boxes, practice facilities, and overall aesthetics?

Course Difficulty

The variety of Tees to choose from, style (traditional, links, etc), and lots of water or sand.

Food and Beverage

Does the course have a full restaurant, full bar, snack bar, halfway house, and menu?

Staff Rating

Are staff friendly and welcoming, or do they take themselves too seriously?

Overall Environment

Does the course have a welcoming and friendly atmosphere?

S & H Affect

Does your course or property have a unique feature that locals and travelers come to enjoy?

Course Benefits

When a course is Stick and Hack approved, members will always walk away wanting to share their experience with other members friends.

If your course prides itself on its conditions, top rated staff, food, booze, and an experience that is much bigger than just the golf – lets talk!
