Established in 1908 as the second golf club chartered in Grand Rapids, The Highlands was redesigned in 1916 by Donald Ross, one of the world's foremost golf architects. The Highlands' timeless design epitomizes the Donald Ross philosophy that "a golf course should be subtly deceptive, rather than unduly penalizing...a true test for the skilled players, yet enjoyable for golfers of all abilities." There is no better example of this philosophy and the The Highlands.

Rich in tradition, The Highlands hosted Senior PGA tournaments from 1986 to 1993. The event attracted such golf legends as Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Billy Casper, Chi-Chi Rodriguez and Lee Trevino. For the last three years, The Highlands has hosted an event featuring several active LPGA players.

The Highlands welcomes all golfers to come and enjoy this wonderful golf course, the great service in the pro shop and the outstanding amenities in the club house and lounge.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Highlands I haven't played there in about 2 years ,it has really gone done hill.the course used to be a 4 now a 2 at best August 28, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by This course should just close The good: The men's locker room was awesome. I could easily imagine Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus sitting in there getting their shoe shined. Very cool. The course is simply a joke. The greens were like putting on cobblestone and the fairways were about 30% dead. The tee boxes were miserable to hit from and mostly dead. The money spent on new carts w/GPS would've been better spent on updating the irrigation system (or putting one in?). Very, very disappointing round of golf and I will never go back...and discourage anyone but starting golfers from playing it as well. Dozens of better options in the area, for the same price ($23).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst ever Plain and simple don't play this course, owner puts 0 money into it. August 13, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Conditions have gone downhill. I haven't played The Highlands in a couple of years. It was nice back then but today it is horrible. Fairways have tons of dead spots and weeds. Bunkers were hard pan and haven't been trimmed. Greens were not good either. Staff is very friendly. I will not be playing here again this year. August 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice course Overall he course was very nice. Some standing water in the fareways August 1, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bad conditions In general I enjoy this course, it is fairly forgiving with wayward shots and a nice layout. However, currently the conditions are pretty pathetic. I teed off around 11:30, several bunkers/fairways were water filled (it hasn't rained in a while), and greens/fairways/tee boxes were pretty ugly. Still worth the $20 for a morning round, but that's about it. July 27, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Wedding parties only are there concern. It was on the warm side of things, the staff was great but the conditions of the course were challenging and poor. Rock hard greens that rolled slow. You make the call. July 26, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average Course, With Potential Not a bad course for the money. The scenery is nice, the holes have challenging layouts with deep bunkers and tricky rough and greens. However, the ground doesn't seem to be well maintained, as most of the course was hardpan. Also, the course seems to stack groups up very close together, causing ridiculously slow play (spent the entire round waiting for 2 groups in front of us, and had 3 groups stacked up right behind us). All in all a decent course, plus the carts are pretty fancy. July 25, 2015
