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.

Highlands Course was in good shape - great design - great greens. Play was slow at times. October 4, 2014
good layout but over rated Had high hopes heard a lot of good things about the course. enjoy Donald Ross designs. The course was beat up bad, divots and ball marks everywhere. Greens were good but no one repairs ball marks. The fairways were poor, weeds all over, had some bad lies in the middle of the fairway. Numerous areas that were muddy or dried up with little or no grass. I'm glad I got a deal because I wouldn't pay any more. Group in front of us were slow constantly looking for balls refused to let us play through. Caused a back up. The staff sent a 2 some out onto the 8th tee in front of us due to a tournament. Unbelievable. disappointed would not go back. August 8, 2014
Hope you have 6 hrs to kill I really enjoy this layout. I live right by the course and it used to be run well. I have worked in the golf industry for years and I understand the game is struggling and you have to make money. It's a shame to see how poorly the staff runs this place now. The rates are good but don't even bother making a tee time because you won't go off on time. Every time I go there which used to be frequent it gets worse. The last time I played it took 3 and a half hours for 9. Ridiculous. The staff has no courtesy for the people who actually have the decency to make a tee time. They will pack 5 groups into one time. I am just bummed to watch this great course deteriorate so rapidly to the point where you can't even factor in having fun because you will be out there for six hours. Who enjoys being on the course for almost a full work day? All I can say is I hope the staff starts to show some pride and start worrying about what happens on the course and not just the cash register August 7, 2014
Fun course to play Behind a "gold tee" league so pace was super slow. While the league did their best, overall extremely slow 9 and was not able to get into any rhythm. Greens and overall course layout are just challenging enough to make it fun. Good deal for the quality of the course. July 31, 2014
Average course but packed Good little course that had some challenges. Got it for less than 20 bucks thru a hot deal. For that price you couldn't beat it but we waited for every shot we hit. A little surprising considering it was a Wednesday morning. It was only my first time playing it so not sure how it normally is but did seem to get a lot if business. The course was in good shape not manicured but very playable. The greens were very fast. July 25, 2014
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
