Airation of greens -dirt from plugs all over greens---no sand in holes for front 9 ---back nine had sand half in holes the rest laid out like sand dunes all over the green---this was not an airation alert but a pitiful attempt at it--- wasted money playing here

Hi Gerry, thank you for your feedback on your round. We were one of the fortunate courses in the area that was able to reopen quickly after Hurricane Irma tore its way through Florida without any cart path restrictions, but are going to have ongoing maintenance over the next few weeks. We hope that you will come back and see the course again soon.

Course was immaculate and the greens ran fast and true. The only complaint no Marshall's on the course to maintain the speed of play. We were 3 1/2 hours for 12 holes which led us to abandoning the remainder. For some reason just as we were starting the back 9 the staff removed all the tee boxes and the staff member to us to play from wherever we wanted. Bit of a let down.

Thank you for playing Highlands Reserve, Allanc144. We were open for a few hours earlier this week before starting our seasonal maintenance, which is why we were removing the tee boxes, but the pace of play was very unusual for us this time of year. We hope this will not deter you from coming back for another round in the future.

I like play there and will return thought out the year.

The only thing I don't like is when your finish and held to your car the cart person standing over you and I fell rush to get my stuff off and out of his or her way. I am like all other golf like to chill out and look over score cad and make sure I have everything before leaving, I don't like being rush out. Like we are do with you leave! I will still go there even when they raise the prices up for the winter season because it's a fun course.

Excellent shape. We played there Mothers Day 2015 special. We got the $16/person special which is in our comfort zone. Only set back, it was busy. The couple in front of us were slow. The man waited until the 2some ahead of them was off the green b4 he'd even hit his ball - and he didn't have a hard drive. So we sat and waited. Other then that, it's a great course and we will, hopefully, play again with a good price.

First time playing Used cart Wet weather

Reviewed on

It all started when we pulled up in the morning darkness and a nice gentleman met us at our car with a cart and put our clubs on it. We then went inside to pay green fees and came across a very friendly man at the counter. After we got a coffee we went outside and got ready to tee off. After a few putts on the practice green we headed for the first tee. We met 2 guys from England one older and one young who we were paired with. They had played the course before and gave us pointers along the way. They were an absolute joy to play with all day. The course was in perfect shape with great fairways and good rolling greens. The day always starts off good when you drop a long put for birdie on the first hole. After the round the gentleman we met in the lot in the morning was there to wipe our clubs clean and put them in our car. This course is definitely on my play again list next time I am in Florida.

This was my first time playing this course. It was in great shape. Fairways were great and greens rolled good even though they were a bit wet. The course was a bit challenging and we played with a great twosome who had played there before to give us a little direction. I will definitely put this course on m play again next time I am in town.

Second time playing the course and again it was in excellent condition. This is a fun, fair, challenging golf course. The greens are tricky, with combination of subtle breaks, undulations and despite having wedges in to many it's never a routine 2 putt. Have played many of the more recognized Orlando area course and there are few I would enjoy playing on a regular basis, or are as good a value.
