Alabama's Highland Park Golf Courser was originally established in 1903 as the Country Club of Birmingham, making it the oldest golf course in Alabama. Highland Park has been the site of many important golf events including one of renowed Bobby Jones' first victories. At the age of 14, Jones played and won the Birmingham Country Club Invitational held at Highland Park.
In 1927, the Birmingham golf course opened to the public. In 1955, the golf course was named for Charley Boswell, a Birmingham native, WWII Veteran, and 17-time National Blind Golf Champion. His namesake continues to distinguish the green at the Highlnad Park golf facilities.
The Highland Park facilities - golf course, adjoining tennis club, clubhouse facilities, etc. - are all located in the heart of one of Birmingham's favorite neighborhoods. The Highland Pakr area has grown significiantly over the past decade as the city of Birmingham continues to revitalize the Downtown Area.
One visit to this charming, hip neighborhood and you will see why Highland Park Golf Course is a gem to enjoy.
