Detailed description
The Highlands of Elgin is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Elgin, Illinois.

The Highlands of Elgin first opened for play in 1971. The back 9 was added in 2003. The course was designed by Keith R. Foster.

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.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,000 yards. From the foward tees the course plays to 4,901 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 6, a par-5 that plays to 581 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 15, a par-3 that plays to 166 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 6, the 581 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at The Highlands of Elgin is # 13, a 310 yard par-4.
