I've played here many times, because it is close to my house and because I used to play in the Cleveland Clinic golf league. It also used to be cheap, but no longer. This course is an embarrassment to the City of Cleveland, which owns and operates it. It's the closest public course to the Cleveland Clinic, so their men's golf league plays there after work. They have a league rule that says you can move your ball 6" in any direction, because of the awful fairways. I once hit a fine drive right down the middle of the fairway, but then could not find my ball. A playing partner walked back 30 yards and found it in the middle of an 8" tire rut filled with muddy water. I've hit out of bunkers that had so little sand in them that my club hit hard dirt. I putted on a green that was rolled dirt. I've also found the clerks who take the money (This is not a pro shop.) to be cold as ice. This is why many people like me drive many miles to play golf elsewhere. If Highland was properly run, it would attract many of us who live close. Instead we have 18 + 9 +9 holes of shame--and about one-half mile from one of the best courses in America, Canterbury.

I grew up playing Highland Park and remember the small old club house with green roof and moss on it. New club house is grand but in need of a pro shop with stuff you can buy, not bare. It's an average 36 hole track with character, a bit short and open by my standards. Red course is more challenging than blue but shorter. There certainly aren't an over abundance of flat lies/plains like conditions tee to green. Speaking of the greens, they do all slope and/or undulate, hold a line well and are relatively fast. It can get quite tricky dependent upon pin placement. I've played some hairy greens in my day and Highland Park's would not be amongst them. Lastly, the folks taking your money in the clubhouse and starters should try smiling once in a while.
