The Highlands of Elgin is a muni, owned and operated by the city. It's west of the Fox River in Elgin, off I-90 at the State Street exit, then south a few miles, then west on US 20.
One of the better golf courses you'll play in Chicagoland, it was redesigned and a new nine holes added by Keith Foster in 2003. Good sized clubhouse, sits up high with views of the course and the rock quarry it was built around. Full driving range with areas to work on bunker play, chips, pitches, well marked with yardages. More of a links style design than traditional with a few trees on the course, a good amount of water and sand, mounded fairways, wide and forgiving, and lined with prairie grass, and a number of fun risk/reward shots. There's 5 sets of tees, the Golds are at 6,365 yards, 130 slope, and a 71.1 course rating.
