“Friendly Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This a relatively short 18 holes! You will use your driver on several holes, but it is also a great place to hone your irons. It is almost always in excellent shape! Easy to locate, south of Eau Claire on Hwy 93 (about 4-5 miles/10 minutes by car). This is a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere here. The owner is affable, congenial and always willing to please his clients. I've never witnessed an unhappy golfer at this venue. Very walkable, a few small hills, but not many. Practice facilities are minimal; a small putting green by the 1st tee and an isolated (about 300 yards from the club house) putting green where you are able to practice chip and sand shots.

“Nice course...but short”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is a par 62. The holes are shorter, but do offer some challenge. Good practice for shorter play. Greens are in nice condition and run true. Perhaps a little long, if you are used to playing higher level courses. It is easily walkable. We went on a weekday and played 18 in under 3 hours walking. I just wish they had water on the course, but many don't any more.

“There are many golf courses in Eau Claire”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Hickory Hills is a great social type golf course. Not too hard, interesting holes, easy to see your next chat. People are very friendly and the fees are quite reasonable. I am however confused as to why this is the only golf attraction listed on Tripadvisor.

There are many other courses in the area, harder and longer if that is what you are looking for, try...

Wild Ridge
Mill Run
Hallie Country Club
Hillcrest (Altoona)
Princeton Valley (9 holes)
Lake Wissota

Wild Ridge in particular is very, very challenging. Each course has something to offer.

“Hickory Hills is a terrific course for the whole family!”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Hickory Hills is an executive length (par 3s and 4s) course about 5 miles south of Eau Claire on Hwy 93. The fairways are well maintained and lined with pines and maples and the rough is kept short enough that errant drives are still playable. The greens are fairly small and very challenging. The course takes full advantage of the available terrain with serveral elevated tees and greens providing very nice views of Pleasant Valley. The front nine has two smaller ponds and the back has a nice large one that are home to a variety of water fowl and marsh birds. The club house is stylized logs with large windows and plenty of room for gatherings and last year a 3 season pavilion was added. The vibe is very relaxed and family oriented. My son started coming with me when he was about 6 and he still finds plenty of challenge as a 15 year old. Hickory Hills is a First Tee Course and their instructors do a great job making golf fun and accessable to all ages and abilities. Hickory also has a variety of leagues ranging from a very laid back couples league to a hyper-competitive match play league. The owners truly love golf and the course is always the first one open in the spring and the last to close in the fall.
