Great course. Way too many leaves. No one working on course to remove them. Good day. Thanks
Greens are unbelievably fast compared to last 17 years i been playing there. Definitely well worth the money. Course has good layout. Only downfall is no fairway or bunkers around the greens. Change has come and for the better.
The change in the last 5 months is incredible! Several greens that were unputtable are much better. Greens are rolling great, tees are being groomed and fairways and rough are cut regularly. The addition of a new irrigation system will do wonders for the entire course but especially the fairways. Kudos to the new superintendent!!
Good little track.
It's been almost 40 years since I have played Hickory Hills. It's been a while in an understatement. I have read some awful reviews about this course over the years. Recently a friend told me that they played it and it wasn;t bad, so I gave it a shot. Overall it was a very pleasant experience, great staff, short ( 6000 yards form the tips) but the greens were in great shape and the tee boxes were pretty good. Accuracy off of the tee box is key, lots of trees, a hilly course for Illinois and some of the greens can have a lot of slope. All in all a fun day, and I will play it again.
Fun downhill shots, good character, bad condition
There are some very fun downhill shots, it is a cool looking course. I am a beginner so normally I don't notice the condition of the courses a ton, but the fairway is like rough that is grown on top of a rock. So on the bright side, if you top the ball, it will roll for miles. Overall fairly fun unless you're nitpicky about conditions.
Will come again
Hickory used to have terrible fairways and greens. Greens have much improved and fairways do look better but still have a ways to go. You can tell a difference from 3 years ago last time I was here. They also have brand new carts. You can tell they are trying, heard they have a new grounds crew. Some construction on some holes. Will try to make it back again this year. Excited to see what they do next year.
Toto we aren't in Illinois anymore!
Hills! Hills! Hills! When 90% of the local courses are flat as a pancake, HH is an interesting challenge. Just wish that all the fairways were as well kept as the greens.
!st Time Review
Drainage is poor, some areas are marshy. The course needs work. Signage and yard markers were poor. Cart paths were rough. The staff was great and most helpful.
Easy Course, Bad Conditions
Perhaps it was just bad timing for me, but this course was in horrible shape. Construction was everywhere and workers on at least half the holes, fair way was patchy with lots of dirt, tee boxes were overgrown, and the greens were soaked despite there being no rain. The course itself was very easy and there weren’t really holes that were interesting or creative.
Cart paths and fairways were very bumpy with lots of obstructions such as big bumps or big construction holes in the ground.
Irrigation System will enhance thus course
This course was quite dry so anything hitting the green would roll off. Had to play the approach shot 10-15 yards short of the green if you wanted to stay on the green. They are just about done installing a irrigation system which will help this course. It still was a good play for the $$
Great Course with brilliant greens.
Brilliant greens, and fairways are getting fixed with irrigation to make this course top notch. I would say that if you have played here in the past and didn’t think the course was good, try it again. The irrigation trench line through the fairways were almost gone. The course is very hilly, hence the name Hickory Hills. Challenging course with long par-4’s and 5’s. Par 3’s are some of divine placements. The Tee’s were at the front of the greens for our play, so that was really challenging. I highly recommend this course for good casual play one which probably will mesmerize with the fall foliage here soon.
Kudos to ground staff for making a tough land geography evolve into an awesome course.
Fairways where really dry and a lot of maintenance was going on. The greens where great, soft feel and good roll.
If trump married Liberace and had a child it would lol like the clubhouse. No driving range. No golf balls for purchase in pro shop. No dress code.
