The club's original golf course was built in 1926, designed by John T. Woodruff and modeled after the great St. Andrews Links in Scotland. While the course has changed in size since its inception, the beautiful setting and great game it delivers has not.
Hickory Hills Country Club was the home course of Payne Stewart, two-time U.S. Open Champion, Hickory is often called upon to host both regional and state-wide tournaments. This old course has large oak and hickory trees lining its fairways. The fairways were built on rolling terrain. The greens are undulating and elevated.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,117 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,061 yards.

I'm a long time member, but it is still a marvelous course. It just reopened after being closed since August, 2007. All greens were gassed regrassed with the A4 hybrid.
