Big Fun at the City of Manchester's Big Hickory Golf Course
Surely there's no more beautiful golf course this side of Torrey Pines. Visitors almost always comment on the breathtaking beauty of Big Hickory. Situated on a rolling knoll made by the Cotton Bend of historic Goose Creek, the course is literally surrounded by lush, hardwood forest-covered mountains. The course is owned by the City of Manchester and is accessed off Beech Creek Road (on the way to Bert T. Combs Park). Just follow the signs. Note that the road leading from Beech Creek Road to the golf course is not suggestive of the beauty you'll find at Big Hickory. Just be patient.

This course was built on rolling hills and features very few trees that can alter your shots. Water hazards come into play on at least four holes. The large greens are undulating. The most difficult hole is #3, a 378-yard, par 4, requiring a very straight shot up a tree-lined fairway. The scorecard doesn't show handicaps for individual holes.
