The Highland Park Golf Experience


Million-Dollar Renovation Project

Highland Park Golf Course, Alabama’s oldest golf course, has reopened for play after an extensive seven-month renovation. This million-dollar course makeover included modernization of golf course bunkers and putting surfaces. Landscapes Unlimited oversaw the renovation.

Highland Park now has smoother, faster putting surfaces from AU Victory Bentgrass. The new bentgrass variety was the first released by Auburn University’s turfgrass research team and promises improved putting greens for golfers. To learn more about AU Victory Bentgrass, click here.

In addition to new putting surfaces, golf course bunkers’ liners and sand have been replaced using the Billy Bunker Method, the BEST bunker construction method in the world. The end results are aesthetically pleasing with great playing bunkers no matter the weather conditions. For more information about Better Billy Bunkers, click here.

The renovation project was done in partnership with the City of Birmingham, the Birmingham Parks and Recreation Department, and Honours Golf, Highland Park’s management company.

We are excited to debut the newly renovated golf course to our loyal patrons.

The Layout

When playing Highland Park, every golfer experiences a fun and scenic yet challenging golf outing. With short, narrow and rolling fairways, our course is an enticing and reasonably priced public golf course with challenges at every hole. Highland Park provides golfers with the ideal picturesque course with views of the city and historic homes in the neighborhood, and a friendly style of play.

This 18-hole layout is fun and encouraging for novice golfers, yet enticing enough for skilled golfers. This par-70 golf course may play shorter than average with over 5,800 yards from back tees, but packs quite the punch! Every hole on this Birmingham golf course features elevation changes and a hazard or two. You’ll need to sharpen your short game skills to make par on this Alabama golf course.

Numerous elevation changes, many holes with uphill approach shots, winding creeks that add character to the course, several generous lakes, and heavily bunkered pristine greens are just a few of the fun surprises you'll find while playing at Highland Park. 

After you play our beautiful 18-hole golf course, make sure you relax and unwind on our outdoor patio overlooking the golf course and with views of the Birmingham skyline.
