What's Included

Get Golf Ready is a National Initiative Program by the PGA of America to grow the game of golf in series of lessons in a fun group learning environment for up to 8 participants in a each class. The program’s few main goals are: 1. To bring new golfers into the game with a fun, fast, stress-free learning experience 2. To bring former golfers back into the game 3. To increase the frequency of play with occasional golfers At Highland Park Golf Course we created our Get Golf Ready programs with different class series to engage every level of golfer, in addition to create a program that builds upon itself. When participants go through each program they will continue to build upon fundamentals/skills learned in addition to learning new beneficial skills that will certainly help them become ‘Golf Ready.’ Each class is $109 and consists of 4 class sessions with an hour and a half of instruction in each. This allows for ample time in each class session to cover important topics and spend more time on topics the instructor may want to spend more time on to help the students be more prepared to create success in the future. There will be numerous class series going on throughout every week/month from March through November. In case of emergencies or scheduling conflicts this allows the student to make up a class session missed in another ongoing class series.

About Highland Park Golf Course

About Highland Park

Alabama's Highland Park Golf Course 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 renowned golfer Bobby Jones’s 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 greens at the Highland Park golf facilities.

The Highland Park Neighborhood

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 Park area has grown significantly over the past decade as the city of Birmingham continues to revitalize the Downtown Area.

One visit to this charming, hip neighborhood and you'll see why Highland Park Golf Course is a gem to enjoy.
