Great course, well balanced with lots of rolling hills and trees. Staff is very friendly helpful. Great for all skill to play. Can be challenging but definitely worth playing! Great pro shop and eating. Close to downtown Dallas. Would play here again and would recommend to all

This is a very beautiful and well maintained course. I payed $56 for green fee and cart on an early saturday morning. The course was in great shape and very challenging. This was my first time playing this course and will definetely play more often.

Wonderful golf experience. Challenging course, great greens, and fun layout. Almost forgot I was in Dallas. Play a bit slow. Worth playing couple of times a year.

Head and shoulders above the other Dallas muni courses. The Highlands is the prettiest and most challenging of the lot, and the city invests lots of money to keep it in shape after the recent redesign. The course is almost always in magnificent shape and the staff does a top-notch job running the facility. Unfortunately, all that attention has come at the expense of the other course at Tension Park, the Glen, which has fallen somewhat into neglect. I'm disappointed that the city decided to charge weekend fares for the course on Fridays; $42 is a bit steep for weekday golf on a public course. Also, the use of astroturf mats on the driving range in favor of natural turf was a lamentable decision. I'll gladly drive another 5 miles up the road to Keeton Park to hit balls off grass.

A great course for the money. If you're going to play at Tenison, definitely do the Highlands course. Good elevation changes, some difficult greens. A well balanced course overall, fun for players of all levels.

Weibring redesign OK; course was great to begin with.

This ancient golf course (1929 I believe) has been redesigned by D.A. Weibring. It's a good thing because it will make the City of Dallas keep it up. In the old days it suffered from benign neglect. This is where Lee Trevino and Ralph Guldahl (sp?) learned to play, so it has produced two Open champions. Weibring destroyed the old number two, the hardest par 3 I ever played. His new number three is too hard. Other than that, he did a great job. The greatest thing about this course is that when you are standing on the highlands part (17th tee among other places) you are looking down on downtown Dallas - a unique view. I love this old style course.
