Restaurant Was Close

The Rent Clubs were the oldest clubs I ever saw, they were so dirty, no brush to clean them, no attention. The Starter was so rude.

Hickory Hills has made huge strides in improvement over the last year.
Excellent layout, unbelievably fast sloping greens. Very challenging for golfers of all skill levels.

Hickory Hills Great Value

What a surprise. Course is in amazing shape. Green are nice and fairways are mowed correctly. The cart path and bunkers aren’t the best but for the $$ it’s a great value!! I never play there because it used to be terrible. Now it’s really nice and a fun course!

Properly named

If you think Illinois is flat, this will change your view (partly). Very hilly and tight. I thought that the layout was too challenging for the casual golfers that are the main customer. Some greens slope so severely that balls on the wrong part of the green are really not puttable. Balls just roll off the green. Fun to see pros do this, but I'm not good enough to play greens like this. When I play a low to moderate priced course, I don't expect or want this kind of situation.
