Rapidly improving!

They've invested time and money in to the condition of the course over the last year and it's gone from the worst course I've ever played, to one that's now very enjoyable. Pace of play was good (3 hours for a 3some) and the staff are very friendly.

Overbooked

Delayed 30 minutes from our tee time due to no carts available. Also, having tee times every 7 minutes took us 5 hours to complete 18 holes because it was so backed up. Inquired about a rain check and they refused. Never coming back.

This is way over rated it’s a solid 2 stars

Range doesn’t open til 10….greens are comical with slopes at times the fairway is left to grow at least an inch and a half in height….no cart girl….tee times aren’t staggered enough to allow for proper pace of play. Course design is from 1917 and you’ll find yourself in the weirdest scenarios (everything is incredibly tight ..I.e tee boxes to green location and cart paths to greens and fences etc.. This course is worth 30bucks if you can stand it.

Hidden Gem

This course was in great shape all summer, so many people have just learned about the course so it's been a little backed up on the weekends besides that the course is in phenomenal shape. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a challenging hidden gem in Hickory Hills.

What an improvement

My buddies and I stopped playing here about 3 years ago because the place had deteriorated so much. The greens were too long, the fairways were mostly clover, tees were bald….We had no intention of going back, but i read the reviews on golf now about a month ago expecting people to say what a mess it was and it was the opposite. So we thought we’d give it a go, not expecting much, but the reviews were right, the owners have spent money here and it’s hugely improved. There are still parts that need more work but there are people out there actively doing more work; we’ll be going back regularly now.

Not a go to place forsure

This course needs work. Not fun, and didn't enjoy my time. Staff was very slow and poor service. Carts were filthy and littered with trash and spilt alcohol. Bees all over. Took 10+ mins to get checked in. Some very rough patches along the entire course. Only go here if you're desperate to get some golf in because this is a sorry course all together. Choose somewhere else for a better experience.

This could be a championship course, if they had more money. A water hazard or two and better tending of the greens would put it over the top. It was a beautiful day, so we had a blast, but the unfixed ball marks on the greens were irritating
