Great course

Challenging and long. Tournament worthy. Well manicured. Helpful pros and the food is good too when that nasty rain decides to drop in.

The course is in great shape!! The greens are large with very few flat spots and very quick. The fairways are lush and the first cut of rough is also pretty thick. This course has a nice mixture of hole layouts so that all skill levels are challenged. The clubhouse is very nice and practice facilities are well maintained!

Their breakfast sandwiches, Sausage egg and cheese on a bun may sound simple, but the sausage is excellent. Order one when you are making the turn on the golf course, which is aslo excellent.

Not your typical "back and forth" muni course, Hickory Point has hosted some high level professional golf tournaments and features interesting holes that challenge golfers of all skill levels. Tee shots, with the exception of the 15th Hole, are generally to forgiving landing areas. Greens feature subtle breaks but true rolls. All in all, a fair and fine test of... More

This is a standard city course with a few upgrades to the course and pavilions and proshop. Its well taken care off. Not a great challenge, but its not disappointing for a city course.

forget about spending lots of money for country clubs. This golf course is just like the country club except it's a lot cheaper.

This used to be the best public course in Decatur. It is now #2. The Redtail Course on the south edge of Decatur is now #1 and it is also public.
