Highland Golf Club, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Conyers, Georgia.
Highland Golf Club first opened for play in 1961 and was renovated in 1986. The course was designed by Neil Edwards.
The concept behind the design was to take advantage of the large Loblolly and White Pine trees and the rolling terrain of Georgia. The landscape is peppered with a variety of colors -- pear trees, Crepe Myrtles, and azaleas in bloom. Highland has five lakes that come into play on seven different holes! Highland Golf Club plays to 6,817 yards with a course rating of 72.7 and a slope rating of 128 from the back tees. Par for Highland Golf Club is 72..

good variety of holes, challenging, but won't wear you out. No bathroom on the back nine is a minus.
