Hickory Point Golf Course in Decatur is one of central Illinois' most popular courses. It has a player-friendly layout that appeals to a wide range of skill levels. The course features flat, wide fairways that make it ideal for beginners while the lengthy holes and blustery winds provide enough of a challenge for more advanced players. The par 4s are particularly long. There are some tricky holes, but you'll do well as long as you're able to keep the ball in the ample fairways. There are strategically placed bunkers coming into play as well as a few water hazards. You'll have to cross a creek on the 16th hole. Hickory Point G.C. also offers a lighted driving range and a six-hole course built specifically for beginning and youth golfers.

    Locals told us this was the best public course around Decatur. They must be right because could not picture a better course in the center of Illinois. Great condition in mid-July, everything green and pliant, not brown & hard. Friendly staff & helpful, let us start on 10 because of men's league play. Great experience.

    18 holes of pure genius. Made for the regular guy who goes out a couple times a month, or for the guy who plays every week. Challenging, yet forgiving.
