I have friends that are members and worked here in high school. It’s a course rich with history, reflected in the excellent well maintained building, entire course, work out facility w/ yoga room & classes, massage therapist on , tennis academy ( with 10 courts & Pickle ball & 3 Paddle Courts , w heated floors for winter leagues & Leagues for all sports) , new Golf Academy Building w 3,000 plus feet of indoor putting greens, 4 indoor driving range bays, private lesson bays, bar, new lockers for men and women, AND INDOOR VirtuAl reality Driving Range. And the clarify the other review which wasn’t very accurate, felt it was only fair to state facts. Highland is very family oriented and has swim teams and tennis teams for the kiddos, the muiti pools at Highland with lockers and showers and Lifeguard station and Food and Grill also located in the Pool House. The pool house and pool is currently under going an entire renovation this winter, with an amazing and magical place to spend warm summer days around a pool with friends and family. Because like I stated before the staff and members are like extended family. Every guest is greeted with a smile and followed with the question what can I do for you? The Butler Univerity Golf Team uses this course as its home base. As well as other private grade schools and high schools using the tennis courts, Golf, and swimming amenities as Home base for their school sporting events and practices. Highland is an amazing country club overall filled with friendly staff and equally friendly and embraceful members.

So before reading a small review from a gentleman who played there once do a lil research of your own. Don’t even take an opinion of someone who worked their 10 years ago and has played and has friends that are currently members and will continue to be, as their fathers, as well as grandfathers are members as well.

I live on a golf course with in 5 miles of Highland so I know the difference between a okay course and amazing gem, that given tons of TLC.

So sencere, if seeking a membership at a Country Club,.. let me take your to play there and show you all there is to offer.

If you want to play this course, just show up and offer them some cash. This place is so hard up for money, they will most likely take it. The golf course is nice, however, the place constantly picks the pockets of it's membership to keep it afloat. The facilities are less than adequate, downright embarrassing. If you know someone that's a member, go try the course. Otherwise, there are plenty of other golf clubs in the area that are MUCH nicer to become a member.

This magnificently restored course is a must-play for anyone who can figure out a way to get on. Originally opened in 1919, this Bill Biddle design (with original routing by Willie Park Jr.) has seen its share of legends pass through, including Babe Zaharias, Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen, who reportedly patched up their differences after a tournament here in 1926. A few years ago, however, prolific local architect Ron Kern, who played the course in his youth, was commissioned to begin a restoration that’s still ongoing. Kern sought to bring the course back to its original specs (the greens are the original greens), often using memories from childhood as well as a few photographs and original plans. The result is a classic parkland course with the character that could only be created in a time before heavy machinery. It’s also in perfect shape, thanks to Certified Golf Course Superintendent Ryan Baldwin and his crew.
