    The Highland takes great pride in the scenic layout of the course, it has a variety of open and narrow fairways lined with older trees and shrubs, while sand traps and water hazards lie in between. Built in July, 1964 it opened as a nine hole course and enlarged to an eighteen in June, 1970. Your first impression when you see the course is that it looks open, so a golfer should not get into much trouble. Then as you approach the first tee off and see how tall the trees are that border the fairways and back of the greens, you know a challenge has been laid out before you. As you proceed through the course you will truly appreciate the contours, slopes and settings the highland has to offer. The grounds keepers maintain the tee offs, fairways and greens by constantly fertilizing and watering them so they will always be in great condition.
    The Highland is a semi-private club that caters to the public as well as members.

    I've often driven passed Brockville Highland on the 401 and, as expected, the noise can be heard on holes bordering this busy highway.
    The course has three sets of tees with the tips just under 5,900 yards so most men will be using this tee set. The front tees are almost 5,000 yards with another tee set between. The course is a par 70 for men and 71 for women.
    Greens often varied in size and many tapered off so if you landed on the edge of a green you would often roll onto the fringe, or worse. The greens were in good condition with some very tricky contours depending on location.
    Brockville Highland eases you into your round with four very straight forward holes. At hole #5 you can see that it's a dogleg right but you simply have no idea how far to hit your tee shot. Even after moving up to the bend you'll see that there is next to no safe area and the trees protecting the green are too high for a high approach shot. This is the one poorly designed hole on the course. Hopefully you can survive a bad score here.
    Hole #6 and #7 are two pretty holes that may correct the frustration you encountered on #5.
    The two par 5s are not overly long. The par 5 13th is very hilly and you're never sure were to hit a ball until you get close to the green.
    For men, the par 3 15th has a very intimidating tee shot through a narrow gap of trees. It's not a pleasant picture.
    Brockville Highland has quite a mix of easy and difficult holes and the fairway and condition of the greens were all acceptable. The course could use a little better signage for directions to the next tee box. The club house is attached to an old building that is in the area of 200 years old where basic golf supplies are available.
