The course at Highland Country Club was designed by the legendary Donald Ross in 1945. Currently, the course is being completely renovated, which will allow for the greens to be in excellent condition for the Friends of Children Golf Classic on October 24, 2013. The refreshed course will include a newer variety of bentgrass supported by USGA soils, drainage and subsurface design. The reshaping and contouring to original size will recapture the original Donald Ross design.
All of the greens will experience an entire transformation and be rebuilt to USGA specifications. These new greens will be seeded with newer bentgrass blends that are characterized by a deeper green color, higher shot density for superior putting and a higher ability to sustain traffic. This process of restoring the course to its original design will allow for Highland to continue being the premier golf facility in Cumberland County.
