Had a game today at highlands reserve, some good, some bad but the staff made it a great day and here's why. When I arrived in America the baggage handlers broke the handle on my hard case making it an absolute nightmare to wheel around, so spoke to the guys at highlands and they said drop it off and we'll have a look. Thanks to Chad he has fixed it better than when it was made, now that is in my appinion is above and beyond the call of duty. I love playing here and even more so now

We've played this course several times over the past 10 years when we have visited Orlando, and I have to say this is the best condition I have ever seen the course. The greens were fantastic! We did not plan to play this course (as I prefer trying out new courses) but after reading the bad reviews of many local courses due to the dry weather, we decided to play Highlands Reserve again, and thankfully we did! Thoroughly enjoyed our game, and may return before the end of our vacation.

Of the courses we have played in the Orlando area, this one is the most fun. You feel as if you are in Arkansas with steep hills and sweeping fairways. The greens are also excellent. You really get your money's worth here!

6th course I've played while on holiday over the last 2 years. Orange lakes legend, orange county national (both courses) LB course at Disney, shingle creek. We liked it so much this week we have booked again to play this saturday. The greens are the best we have played, they are truly awsome. I was unsure of the course prior to playing it, with it being a lot cheaper than the others it did put me off. But i read the reviews and thought I'd give it a try and glad I did. Couldn't fault the course or staff. Not a links course as we know it in the UK. Some tight treenline fairways lots of sand but many open fairways throughout. A good challenge, found it fair and enjoyable. And the greens are brilliant. Let the reviews make your decisions, I'm glad I read them and I can pass on my experience too. Get booking!

This is a beautiful course with scenic views of forests and orange groves. It is a very challenging course due to layout, slopes, sand traps, and large difficult greens. What I like most is that it is a very woman-golfer-friendly course while still being very challenging for the average-to-advanced male golfer. This course is a bit like Southern Dunes but at a much better price point. Every shot must be calculated and hit strategically. The course is beautifully maintained and in excellent condition. The staff are super friendly, helpful and polite. All in all, this is my favourite course in Florida.

Played 9am and was very pleasantly surpirrised by this course, had a good variety of holes, some tree lined and some wide open fairways, we played champions gate international 2 days warier and the greens here were just as good if not better as a bit more receptive.

Overall great value for money and will be back again before we go home

Of the 4 courses I played on this vacation, this was by far my favourite. Great fairways and the toughest greens to read but in fantastic shape. A lot of elevation changes to make you think strategically about your game. The staff here were A+ and very friendly. Pace of play was fantastic, we got around the course in 3 hours. First 5 star rating I've given but well deserved. I will definitely play this course on my next trip to Orlando.

Great layout with nice elevations. Fairways in good condition. Greens are a funky color - must have sprayed some fertilizer or insecticide but good speed and rolled true. A little dry but we haven't had much rain lately. Not a typical Florida course. A must play if you are in the area.
