Wow. The course was in fantastic shape. One of the best I've seen for any public course. You could easily say the condition of the greens could match those of most private clubs. Certainly best bang for your buck.

Highland is a solid public course, it's kept up will and has some challenging holes. It's usually pretty busy at peak hours. It changes elevation and has a snoopy sand trap. The course is also pretty wide open if your friends are new to golf....More

First time I played this course in several years. Completely renovated but I like the "original"layout better. Biggest problem with old and new layout is many holes parallel each other so you often have to wait for golfers to return to their hole before hitting....More

The golf course is kept in very good condition. There is a balance of short and long fairways with varying difficulty. The greens are not a slam dunk but you do have a chance. Easy access from all over the twin cities.

Lovely day, but can not recommend this course except if you don't care about a very slow round (on weekends) are looking for inexpensive green fees ($36 for Sunday 18, walking, more if you want a power cart). Greens are in reasonably good shape -...More

I do not know what the hype is all about... This golf course is way over rated & I was very disappointed. The front 9 is sparse, wide fairways & no real rough or groves/rows of tree. For those who slice it into the woods...More

An old classic course in a great neighborhood, Highland is noted for being the course many of the area's young people learned the game, from Charles Schulz to Joe Mauer. Yet, it is still well loved even by the country club set because the conditioning...More

Not a bad course, but the "National" in its name makes it out to be something special, it's not. Plus, if you play early like I like to , they remove all the flags on all the greens b/4 they mow any of the greens....More
