Highland Golf Course opened for play in 1962. The course was designed by George Von Elm.
Named for its hillside location on Pocatello's east bench, Highland Golf Course is one of two municipal golf courses in Pocatello. With its uneven lies, 40-year-old trees (Pines and Russian Olive) lining the fairways, and arguably the most severe breaking greens in the state, Highland may challenge you. (Local hint: The greens break twice as much as they appear and break downhill toward town.)
Like most courses in eastern Idaho, Highland isn't overly long from the tips (6,512 yards) but manages to test all aspects of your game. For example, #5 and #8 are a pair of par 3s that measure over 200+ yards with very difficult greens and will really put your long-iron skills to the test. The back nine is kinder. It includes three par 5s, two of which are back to back (11 and 12) and just under 500 yards. The signature hole is the newly remodeled #16. This 160-yard, par 3 hole with a pond just off the tee box is the only water hazard on the course.
Highland Golf Course plays to a par-72 and a maximum distance of 6,512 yards. The course rating is 69.8 and the slope rating is 117.
