2019 Highlands of Elgin

Tournament Information


The Highlands of Elgin has become a premier destination for thousands of golfers throughout the region. Nine new 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 original nine holes flow over beautiful rolling terrain, creating a diverse collection of holes.

The prairie style clubhouse features an expanded golf shop, locker rooms, event rooms and a full scale food and beverage operation. Experience stunning golf course views while dining at The Grumpy Goat Tavern. The facility also features a lighted practice facility offering bent grass tees, 20 hitting stations, short game area and a 9,000 sq. ft putting green.
