Highland Park Golf Course, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Birmingham, Alabama.
Highland Park Golf Course opened for play in 1903 as the Country Club of Birmingham. It is the oldest golf course in Alabama.
Highland Park has been the site of many important golf events including one of Bobby Jones' first victories. At the age of 14, Jones played and won the Birmingham Country Club Invitational held at Highland Park.
In 1927, the course opened to the public and in 1955, the course was named for Charley Boswell, a Birmingham native and 17-time National Blind Golf Champion.
In 1998, the course was restored by Bob Barrett and designer Bob Cupp. The re-development provided a classic design with modern amenities.
The 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 features elevation changes and a hazard or two. You'll need to sharpen your short game skills to score well. Water comes into play on half the course. You'll find numerous elevation changes, many holes with uphill approach shots, winding creeks that add character to the course, several generous lakes, heavily bunkered pristine greens.
