Course Reviews


I grew up down the street from this course. When I played on the high school golf team, Hickory Point was our home course. I had played the course at least a thousand times before I turned 18.

I can attest that it is a very balanced, solid course. The layout is traditional, but there are a lot of turns and a few surprises here and there. Hickory Point is a local favorite in Decatur, and a lot of golfers prefer it over the brand new Red Tail Run.

The staff at HP are friendly and helpful, and the park district courses, especially HP, are a great value.

Hickory Point Review

This is a bit of a challenging course. The rough is usually high and the holes play a little long but is a very fair course. There is one dumb par five with in course out of bounds on the back. This is a blind tee shot but you have more room that you think on the right. Hit driver and don't go for the green. Lay up to about 130 and take your chances. I went for the green in two and took a seven in a recent tournament. This is a course that will recquire you to grind it out.
