Rating 72.2

Clifton Highlands Golf Club, just north of Prescott, enjoys a scenic location overlooking the St. Croix River Valley. The club offers a championship 18-hole course as well as a par-3 course. Dr. Gordon Emerson, Wisconsin's most prolific course designer, designed the Championship Course. He considered it some of his best work. The golf course has enough diversity to appeal to both low and high handicappers. The layout is fairly tight with mature trees framing many of the holes. The undulating greens and fairways are meticulously maintained. A combination of water and sand comes into play, providing a fair amount of challenges without being too punishing. In addition to the 27 holes, Clifton Highlands G.C. also has a driving range and practice greens that are adjacent to the first tees of both golf courses.

Love it!

Beautiful course in great condition. Challenging, but fair… greens are very challenging, but roll true and consistently fast. Exceptional value for the money… will definitely play again.

Beautiful well maintained course

Played once before and really liked the course. A bit of a drive from the Twin Cities, but well worth it. Beautiful course and very reasonably priced for my wife and I to play. We will be back!

Beautiful course and terrain.

First time playing. I’m just an average golfer, so this course was a challenge for myself and most of the group playing with me. But a beautiful course, none the less, and we will replay the course in the future.
