A Gem in the Mountains of North Carolina

Highlands Country Club is a beautiful and challenging course set against a rolling backdrop of mountains. The course is fantastic for all levels. It's not a very long course but it's one that requires control of your golf ball because there are plenty of old trees and hazards in the way. There is also nice elevation change on many holes. The condition of the course is very good but the strength is the putting surfaces. They are very true and fast with plenty of movement to challenge even the best. Besides a great layout, Highlands has plenty of history. Highlands CC was Bobby Jones retreat from Atlanta while working for Coca-Cola. You see plenty of Jones memorabilia throughout the club including a full set of clubs that was featured in a Sports Illustrated article. If you are looking for a fun test of golf with nostalgia and a great staff to compliment your experience, Highlands Country Club is for you.
