One of Carbondale's most identifying qualities is its commitment to outdoor recreation.

Located on the northern edge of the Shawnee National Forest, Carbondale is adjacent to a number of venues for outdoor activities. Giant City State Park, Little Grand Canyon, Piney Creek Ravine, Pomona Natural Bridge, Garden of the Gods, and Trail of Tears State Park are just a few of the nearby areas that offer hiking, biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, and more.

Carbondale Golf Guide

Carbondale Nestled in the rolling hills of southern Illinois, Carbondale is a hub for golf enthusiasts of all skill levels.

The city is centrally located near five beautiful courses, providing golfers with a variety of options. Carbondale's own Hickory Ridge Golf Course is a gorgeous 18-hole championship course, where the fairways are long, the sand and water hazards are demanding and the bent grass greens are smooth. This outstanding 6,863-yard municipal golf course offers a solid challenge to power-hitters and shot-makers alike.

Besides the course, Hickory Ridge has a practice range, a driving range, a putting green, and a pro shop. The pro shop offers a generous selection of golf attire, golf clubs, and accessories. Hickory Ridge also has lessons available to help golfers improve their games.

Unlike most golfing destinations, Carbondale's climate allows the course to remain open during the year, barring freezing and snowy weather. If golfers prefer to walk the course, Hickory Ridge doesn't require the use of a cart. The course also accommodates corporate outings, which have become increasingly popular in recent years.
