Highlands golf course first opened for play in 1988. The course was designed by George Marshall.
The Highlands at Gearhart is a par 31 executive course, perfect for your short game. The course has 5 par 3's and 4 par 4's. The course overlooks Gearhart Beach. The course measures 1,776 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 29.5 and the slope rating is 94.
This course has grat views of the Pacific Ocean on almost every hole. This course is difficult because of the rough terrain and narrow fairways. Hole #1, a 195-yard, par 3, requires a tee shot up a dogleg left fairway past many hazards, then a short approach shot to a well-bunkered green. Hackers will especially love this course because when their game goes bad they can enjoy the great scenery.
This is the only non-smoking golf course in the country.

Fun course in great shape with adequate challenges. First hole is actually an uphill dog leg right with a center tree that can reward or penalize an aggressive shot to a raised bunker protected green. A slow group ahead can really slow down play. to suggest ocean views on most holes is a stretch. Staff is friendly and helpful. Many fairway homes but overall great ambiance and walking only is a plus. Best scoring requires conservative course management but if you're long and straight off the tee you can be rewarded. Inexpensive for the quality of play. Tuesdays you can golf all day for $10!
