The Highlands of Elgin
The original nine holes flow over beautiful rolling terrain, creating a diverse collection of holes.
The new nine holes reclaim an old stone quarry, and take maximum advantage of the unique and dramatic landforms that were left behind, including a twelve acre quarry lake. Four holes hug the top of the bluff thirty to forty feet above the water providing golfers with incredible views and numerous shot options on each hole.
The collection of eighteen holes now provides golfers with an adventure through a variety of unique golf holes in a beautiful setting.
The prairie style clubhouse features an expanded golf shop, locker rooms, event rooms with expansive ceilings and a full scale food and beverage operations. Enjoy dining at the Grumpy Goat Tavern and experience stunning golf course views. The facility also features a lighted practice facility offering bent grass tees, 30 hitting stations, short game area and a 9,000 sq. ft putting green.
