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.

Friday Golf Went out on a Friday afternoon with my son. Teed off about noon and were done at 4. Not too crowded at that time. "Compact" course, but stil very playable July 19, 2014
Great value We played as a twosome. The course was fairly busy. We got stuck behind a foursome of hackers that we not excited about letting anyone play through. The marshal said he was going to pull them off at turn and let the 2 twosomes play through. That didn't happen! We were stuck behind them the entire back nine! We weren't in a big hurry so it wasn't that big of deal. For $20 it was a great time. The greens were in nice shape. July 13, 2014
Course gone bad I remember when this course was top class, even as a public course after it left being private. The pace of play is unbearable. Over 6 hours to play. The fellow hacks had no respect for the course or other golfers. They would take our balls from the middle of our fairway. They really let the place go I feel. Some points in the rough dont even seem like turf grass. Weeds are all over the place. The only bright spot is that the course is a donald ross, and the staff is friendly. July 5, 2014
Good value Staff was excellent, course in decent shape. It was challenging without being too difficult. I would say a good value for your money. June 29, 2014
Fun with mature trees for shade This is an old course, but one of my favorites. It is a good one to be in the fairway, but if you are not you can still scramble and get decent score. It is in great shape June 28, 2014
Tsaxman Course is a bargain to play, for a classic Donal Ross lay out, but is a shame to see the condition it is in compared to when it was host to Senior Tour events in the mid 1980s. Cart paths are atrocious, even worse than most Michigan roads, with broken asphalt and pot holes the norm in many places. Fairways and greens are beat up. It is as if, by opening it to the public, the greenskeeper quit or just shrugs his or her shoulders because the current clientele do not replace divots or fix ball marks on the greens. Some bunkers had no sand in them to speak of. It made me sad to see it this way. June 26, 2014
Great day It was good to play there. But the staff doesn't mind to get on the way and doesn't seem to care to leaf blow 5 ft away from you driving the ball May 1, 2014
good course Too many leaves even on fairway, but its fall I expected it. November 10, 2013
