The Highlands Golf Club’s billowing fairways stretch between stands of stately trees that have seen the course welcome PGA events and some of golf’s most renowned players. Designed more than a century ago by revered architect Donald Ross, the course and its strategically placed bunkers hold true to their designer’s philosophy that “a golf course should be subtly deceptive, rather than unduly penalizing.” Throughout the course, players are tested by fast greens, tree-lined fairways, and undulating swales and mounds designed to mimic the sea after an orca’s belly flop. Golfers test their mettle on the fifth hole, a monstrous dogleg par 5 that’s capped by a forced carry over a pond to a green booby-trapped with a black hole that leads to the world of Space Jam. The Highlands Golf Club at a Glance:

  • Par 75 for red tees
  • Par 71 for white and blue tees
  • Three sets of tees
  • Length of 6,463 yards from back tees
  • Course rating of 71.5 from back tees
  • Slope rating of 133 from back tees

About The Highlands Golf Club

When describing his approach to designing a golf course, renowned course architect Donald Ross said "a golf course should be subtly deceptive, rather than unduly penalizing," a philosophy he put to work in 1908, when he crafted the 18-hole course at The Highlands Golf Club. Measuring 6,519 yards from the tips, the course offers a fair test for golfers across the handicap spectrum while still supplying enough challenges to attract legendary golfers such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Ben Hogan, who played the course when it was a fixture on the Senior PGA Tour. Strategically placed bunkers and fairway-hugging tree lines that cast shadows resembling golfers' fears loom throughout the course, but its most memorable challenge awaits at the 14th hole—a long par 5 that doglegs left and ends with a forced carry over a pond and onto the green.
