Played 18 holes as a single on a beautiful Thurs. afternoon in 2 1/2 hours, teeing off at 12:30PM. Only played through one group -at number 10. Challenging layout, particularly off the tees playing for the first time. A couple of "funky" par 5s with Nos. 1, 5 and 18 that definintely need to be played multiple times to get comfortable. But as long as you control your tee shots, you can score quite well. If you are coming from fast green courses, be prepared - they roll true, but slow here . Overall, a great value at $26 (particulalry compared with other nearby courses) and I'll definitely be back again. Worth the extra drive.

Course was in great shape with many of the fairways starting to or mostly greened up. The greens were slow, but considering the were aerating the day after I played it is to be expected. Well worth the 40 minutes from Marietta!

Only reason on don't give 5 stars is due to the slow greens and the fairways don't have that much grass at this time but it's kind of expected this time of year. Clubhouse and staff are great folk, one of the best pro shops I have ever seen. And the highlands grill has amazing food!!

The course has some great views and the greens are in fantastic shape. The ball gets plenty of roll after it lands so make sure you plan for that when hitting. Alot of the fairways lean left or right and the ball will roll down to the edge if you dont have any spin on your ball like mine. Overall a nice course for the money.

It felt like I was golfing in the clouds.The Highlands is a very appropriate name for this very challenging course as it seems to be on a mountain top. Not for Walkers, with the extreme elevation changes and the long distances between holes it was even a struggle for some of the carts that were not fully charged. The condition was great especially for January. The Staff was very friendly and the practice facilities were all in good condition. this is one of the most scenic courses I have ever played, while walking up to the 11th green even 3 bucks came out of the woods to see where my approach landed on the green (they were not impressed). If you are a first timer at this course, as I was, you are in for an adventure. This course has a lot of hidden hazards over hills you cannot see and with the extreme elevation changes on the holes, it makes picking your club an extra challenge. I cannot wait to bring my buddies to this course as I will be giving NO advice from prior experience (I need all the advantages I can get ha).

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The course was unique many elevation changes. This course needs to be played several times to play it well. You need to hit shots in the correct positions on many holes in order to carry the ravines throughout the course. I would recommend it to all level of golfers. It was a great value and my son and I had a great time.

Overall very good/excellent experience yesterday. Grill room was friendliest, most efficient I've experienced this year. Course staff was very hospitable from the moment we drove up til the moment we left. Golf course was VERY challenging, probably requiring a couple visits to learn where NOT to hit!! But NOT tricked up...just tough! Seemed like pin placements were tournament tough. Hope to return next week!
