About Us

Hickory Ridge Public Golf Course (HRPGC) is one of the most challenging 18-hole golf courses in Southern Illinois. HRPGC earns its 129-slope rating, stretching out over 6,800 yards of mixed hilly terrain, ponds, and natural stands of hardwoods and pines. The zoysia grass fairways are designed to tolerate heavy play and traffic. Weather permitting, HRPCG is available to the public year-round.

Tee time reservations can be made up to 14-days in advance. A driving range and full putting/chipping green are also available at this championship practice facility. There are private and group lessons available by an experienced golfing professional at reasonable rates. Leagues are available to join. Leagues are a great way to meet new friends, have fun, and enjoy all that HRPCG has to offer.

Hickory Ridge Public Golf Course is the home to the golf teams at Carbondale Community High School and Southern Illinois University. HRPGC hosts many tournaments, including the annual Saluki Invitational.
