Hickory Creek in Canton, Michigan is a beautiful 18-hole facility that is truly one of the sleeper courses in the metro Detroit area. The course winds along a rolling terrain - more rolling than one would imagine for this area, with gently raised green complexes and several elevated tee areas. Most of the fairways are bordered by dense tree lines or tall native grasses, and water hazards in the form of ponds.
The Clubhouse facilities include a pro shot plus restaurant and lounge. There is a grass range and practice green for putting and chipping. Though not overly long, Hickory Creek packs some punch. The small greens are challenging targets, but land in regulation on the mildly sloping putting surfaces, and good scores can be had. Prior experience is a good advantage here - especially on the holes that dogleg to the right or left. For a review of this course with 10 photos, click on the review link near the top of this page.
