3300 Highland Ave S
Birmingham, AL 35205-1411, United States

Alternately known as Charley Boswell Golf Course, this course was established in 1903 as the original Country Club of Birmingham. In 1998, architect Bob Cupp oversaw a major redesign of the course. This par-70 course is among the most popular public-access courses in the city, in part because it is not punishingly long. Three sets of tees stretch from 4,793 to 5,801.

The standard rates (with cart) are $42 on Mondays through Thursdays, $49 on Fridays, weekends and holidays. Senior, junior, student, 9-hole, and sliding twilight rates are available, as are annual passes.

The Highland golf course is a fun course to play. It is just 5800 yards from the tips, but is still very challenging. Your ability to keep the ball in the fairway is important on this course. The greens are bent grass and putts roll very well. The entire course is cart path only and as a result the fairways and rough are usually in great shape. The course has many elevation changes so walking would be a good workout.

Highland is located in an area just south of downtown Birmingham called Southside. Southside is an older neighborhood near the University of Alabama-Birmingham (UAB) and it has a lot of southern city charm. The location along with the layout contributes to the course's unique character.

The front nine is longer than the back nine. Number #6 and #7 play along a drainage wash that I think are the most challenging holes. On the back nine there are two very short par 3s. Number #13 and #17 both play under 120 yards. Number #16 is the most scenic hole. It is a par 4 that plays uphill. On the green you have beautiful view of the Birmingham skyline.
