Highland Golf Links
Heralded as Cape Cod’s oldest golf course, perhaps its most scenic, the Highland Links in North Truro is one of America’s golf treasures, perched high along windswept bluffs overlooking the Atlantic next to the vintage Cape Cod Light.
Founded in 1892, Highland recently celebrated a hundred years of golf. More than significant than its age is Highland’s heritage; circumstances keep it a genuine links, as close to the Scottish tradition found anywhere in the eastern United States, with deep natural rough, Scotch broom, heath, non irrigated open fairways, and spectacular ocean views.
The original “Highland House Golf Links” was part of an ocean hotel and cottage resort operated for year by the Small family of Truro, who promoted the course as “2000 yards around…in attractiveness not equaled in the New England coast.” Francis Ouimet, the legendary U.S. amateur, played an exhibition round here after its original sand greens were converted to grass.
