This course is incredibly well maintained round the year. Even in the driest, hottest summer, it is hard to find a sizable bare spot in the course. Unlike the near totally flat terrain of the surrounding area, this course has adequate ups and downs to...More

This golf course is in great proximity to the town in comparison to the other golf courses in the area. The course however is a little pricey in my opinion. The holes are average to say the least but there isn't anything fancy or over...More

Best condition golf course south of I-70. and great fun to play!! No other course in Southern Illinois compares to it. The little jewel for Carbondale, owned and operated by the Carbondale Park District

Played Hickory Ridge for the first time in years and was impressed with how much this course has matured over the years--it is a course that requires some pre-swing thinking as every hole is a dogleg. Unfortunately the greens had been "punched" the day before...More

Zoysia grass makes for a lush, beautifully landscaped course. Nestled in a wooded area with ample hills and water features, Hickory Ridge course is equally challenging and a true representation of Southern Illinois nature. Fairways and greens are in great shape. Large driving range!

The course has a little bit for everyone, long/short holes, elevation changes etc. A nice range and clubhouse. Favorite public course in Southern Illinois.
