Course is still on ragged side but much improved from beginning of the season.

A few of the greens have significant dead spots and a large pit in middle of first fairway has been there for at least three years now. But the fairways were in much better shape than the start of the year and were mostly clear of leaves.

Course was busy but not overly crowded which led to ability to have a brisk pace of play.

Staff was very friendly, especially the starter.

terrible, awful greens

if you like bumpy greens with numerous large bare spots, you will be fan of Hickory Hills. If you hit into the rough many areas had so many leaves finding your ball was not possible. Staff was super friendly and helpful.

The course needs work. There was a lot of leaves on the course making it harder to find your ball. For the price it was worth the round.

Never again

This course was in shoddy condition at best. Giant holes everywhere and most of the greens looked like the surface of the moon. Extremely poor maintenance and although it is early November, it looked like there was no effort whatsoever to clear any leaves. I will not play here again. Awful for a park district course, let alone a country club’.

Course is in bad shape. Especially the Greens ! OMG

Today was one of the worst I've ever seen HH. The Greens were unrecognizable ! Looked like they had mini sand traps on them, and cracking. The best green on the course was the Practice Green. Not goin back.

Great layout, but................

The fairways were nice, but the tee boxes were dirt and long grass/weeds. Most all greens were damaged, some by disease, some by clippings left from mowing. All greens were slow and needed cutting. It doesn't look as though much money has been put into the course. It's a great layout, though, and a great location.

Final comment. When I booked the reservation, I believed the cost included a riding cart. I'm a senior, I never walk, and this is a hilly course. I was quite surprised to have to pay an extra $10 for a cart when I got to the course. The confirmation letter from GolfNow does NOT mention this detail..

greens weren't very green

There wasn't much of a difference in grass height from the fairway to the rough. Greens were in very poor condition (many of them were shaved down to sand.

Tee boxes were in very rough shape and not cut whatsoever. You were either hitting off taller grass or just the dirt on the tee boxes.

Not being maintained

Very nice starter and staff. I like that you can use a driver on most holes and the wide fairways are very forgiving. Unfortunately the greens among the worst I have ever seen. The tee boxes are not level and poorly maintained. The sand traps are overgrown and don;t look to have been maintained all year. I hooked a ball onto the north course and it wasn't even mowed. There are much better options for a $35 walking round. The nice part is that due to conditions and price the course was not very crowded. Despite all the condition issues I will play it again because it is convenient for me. The wide fairways are almost like being at the driving range and are good for practice. Hopefully the course improves but I wonder if it will be turning into strip malls soon.

It is what it is

I mean. You get what you paid for. I have played worse but this thing has been let go. The greens need work. There literally is no fairways The layout is good but it just is beat up. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. But at the end of the day for 45 bucks with cart you can’t expect Augusta. It allows you to play a cheap round. I won’t be back unless they fix the course but it is what it is

Terrible and Run Down

Worst Greens I have ever played on. Literally dirt and sand on 75% of them. Fairway first cut rough was uncut in most areas, and where they were cut, the dead grass clippings being so thick made it very difficult to find a ball with the amount of it all over.
Shouldn't pay more than $15.00 for 18 holes to play here.

Not worth the time or money

I was very disappointed in course conditions since this was supposed to be a country club. It was extremely unkept, the greens were mostly had dirt and sand. I do not recommend going to play there.

Condition of the course was just fair

Condition of the course was just fair, This is the second time I played the golf course. I played earlier in the year and the course had not been mowed fairways were very long. I decided to give it a second chance things have been improved but overall the courses in that very good shape.
