Hickory Knoll Golf Course


Featured Golf Course Review:
Hickory Knoll Golf Course -- Hickory Knoll a Hit
Review by: J.C. This course has a lot of rolling hills. It sports mostly par 3 holes, but also offers three par 4's which allow folks an opportunity to break out a Driver or 3-wood from the tee. The most diificullt of these is the 285 yd. 6th hole which requires a blind tee shot over a small hill in front of the tee box. There is no water in play on any hole and the greens are medium fast with subtle breaks to challenge even skilled golfers. The 5th green is sloped severely from back to front, so take care to remain below the hole or face a treacherous downhill putt. Of the par 3's, the 210 yd. 4th hole is the longest, requiring a long, accurate shot to a relatively small target.

Highland Woods Golf Course -- Nice but sloooow
Review by: RT from NW IL Nice course since Billy Casper Golf has taken over the management of it. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the staff really cares whether you enjoy yourself or not. The man behind the counter was not friendly followed only by the starter whose mumbling was unintelligible because of a pipe in his mouth. The course, however was in nice shape with fast greens. Do not expect to have a short round if you tee off after 8:00am or on the weekends. 5 hour rounds are the norm, with some (weekends) going over 5 1/2!!
