Solid test.

Both Highland courses, Red and Blue, were both in very poor shape not too long ago. Both have come back nicely. Looks like they put someone in charge that knows what they are doing and you can tell they are putting money into the upkeep. I grew up on this course. So glad it’s playable again. Does the course have rough spots? Sure. The greens have always been the strong suit of the course. When I played they were aerated, but once they come back, they are going to be great. Country club like greens. True. Fast.

Excellent Value

This is a long, straight course. Nothing particularly fancy. Every year the quality of the greens and fairways improves. Today the greens on the Blue course were excellence! The staff are wonderful. There are no frills, no hot food, which is not an issue for most. Over, it is an excellent value.

Needs some work

Course has several holes in the fairways and cart paths are only partial to show you the way to the next hole. The course is challenging but not too long. Greens were in great shape and very fast.

Horrible

They booked an outing of dozens of people over my tee time. The person said I don't know how it happened it wasn't my fault. Really, that is the best you can do?

Course rebounding from years f neglect and mismanagement

I’ve played Highland Park Golf Course for the past thirty-five (35) years, the conditions are improving by the day and the layout is beautiful. The new staff is friendly and conscientious, the pricing is competitive with other courses in the area, a true Cleveland gem...

Fair option

The RED course has a very interesting design. Not very challenging, but very pleasant to play.
The only thing that is really far from ideal is the grass itself, mainly in the tee boxes.
Greens were cut quite high, so even in a 87F day the ball did not roll much.

Dont knock it

The Blue course is a 6700 from the tips (6550 from the whites) and the greens were in great shape. The Blue sees less play than the Red (because it is 18 only) which helps keep the greens in fine shape. I was out on a Monday morning and I only had one other group in front of me (but they kept up pace and I never waited on a shot). If you're not looking for a Country Club experience and want to play a straight forward track with enough length to make it interesting and still have money left over to buy dinner afterward, this isnt a bad option

Better reviews make it out to be

Played red front 9. Layout was pretty straightforward. A couple of blind tee shots. Was pleasantly surprised by course considering average ratings. Greens were on the slower side but rolled well and were very soft and in better than average shape. Fairways had no weeds and gave nice tight lays. Rough was patchy and had some weeds. Pace of play was great. Will be back. Would like to play the blue course.

Definitely a comeback course

Played the Blue Course again today, definitely on the mend. Greens were excellent, fairways tight and the rough is coming down and playable. I’ve been playing this course for thirty-five years and it’s in awesome shape and getting better by the day. I love the characters who are a mixture of over diverse society including retired professional athletes, golf pros and hustlers of every level and ability. I have played probably 20 rounds this season since the new management has taken over and will continue to play weekly.

Good comeback

Highland Park, at least the blue course, is back in great shape. Was down for a couple years, but I would not hesitate to play this course again or bring friends to play it also.

Staff was exceptionally rude

Never have I been treated so poorly by a staff member. I booked a 9 hole round on this course only to be yelled at when trying to start on the first tee since apparently the blue course does not offer 9 holes only. This was after I checked in at the pro shop, and the starter yelling at us insisted it was my fault and not their websites. Had he approached in a sane way I wouldnt have had a problem, but to pull up screaming get off that tee now is just unnacceptable. I emplore everyone to refrain from patronizing this course.

Good but...

The course is very straight forward. Accuracy off the tee is very helpful because the rough past the second cut is thick. We spent quite a bit of time searching for shots that on other courses would have been quick to find. There are no yardage markers so bring your range finder. We had none in front or behind us on a Friday morning 8:30 ish so the pace was good and allowed us to play a second shot if needed. As a relatively new golfer I would say they could spruce it up a bit and tend to the needs of the course more, but at $37 hot deal with a cart for 18 on a Friday, I'm not gonna complain.

Only good with a Hot Deal

The course conditions have improved a little over the last two years since being taken over. I played the Blue course and have always hatted the layout and lack of guidance to the next hole. Some of the fairways and greens were in good shape, but became kind of poor beyond that because of taller grass and cut grass clippings left all over the place. This makes locating your ball off the fairways extremely difficult. A Hot Deal for $20 and this course is worth it, but anymore than that I'll drive a little further and pay more for a better course. It wouldn't take a ton of work to take this course to a better level (i.e.- fill in ditches throughout, ball washers, garbage cans, more paved cart paths from hole to hole, shorter cut grass off the fairways, and raked). Hopefully they keep improving.

A Comeback

So pleased to have played today, growing up this was the closest course and my friends and I would play here. Unfortunately, after some time the course fell into dissaray and they even stopped aerating the greens and removing grass clippings from the course when they would now.

I walked this 18 hole course, no 9 hole option, there is an old concession building after the 9th hole which was be great to see one day reopen. Also, this course I have heard was the home to the Cleveland Open PGA tournament. I feel after today it is getting closer to those golden times. The greens were getting quick and rolled mostly true with no dead spots which had been a problem for a while. Grass clippings were non existent and overall course conditions were good with some ditches and rough spots in some fairways and immediate rough areas.

It seems a decision was made to keep other parts more natural and the natural plants added beauty to the course as well as made some holes, ala the 18th more difficult, as the carry became longer, if you choose to attempt a driver over the ravine I slightly missed the sweet spot and though a decent drive was now not enough to carry no man's land. A beast from the tips which I played today with par 4's at or longer than many recreational golfera play par 5's at, a tested design played by Arnold Palmer, Tiger woods and Jack Nicklaus. I hope the progress continues.

Still room for improvement

The greens are back in great shape.rest of course is either rough or fairway if you miss fairway you can spend more time looking for your ball than you do golfing
