HIGHLAND PARK GOLF COURSE
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. 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.

So Happy With The Program!
I was extremely impressed with both Max & Chris and their handling of both camp instruction and supervising children. I could tell immediately my grandsons skill levels have improved. Chris provided valuable feedback on club fitting and areas to have our grandson focus on. I have already recommended this camp to others. Great camp. Great experience. Thanks Chris & Max!

Max is so great! My son was a returning camper this year and thanks to you is so hooked on golf and improving his game. Thank you! Highly organized, great staff and providing lunch is a great bonus to this parent.

Max and team do a great job!
Other Children Were a Big Distraction
The camp was more of a playground for some of the golfers. You might want to think about raising the age. My son loves golf and has been playing for a while, but some of the other children were a big distraction and the coaches acted as if they were not concerned about teaching them the manners that go along with playing golf!
— Logan C.
Enjoyed Each Day
Nike Golf Camp was a great experience for my two children. Wonderful, positive coaches that mix fun games with good instruction. My kids enjoyed each day and look forward to returning next year.
My two little ones needed a good introduction to golf and this couldn't have been a more positive experience for them. They came home each day excited about golf and eager to go back the next day.
