nice layout....great value

This is second time we played this course. Prob one of the best around Harrisburg area for the money.

i meet a friend who lives in ne pa and im from sw pa. we pick areas between us. this time it was Harrisburg area.

Only reason i did not give 5 stars is several greens were damaged from flooding. it rained like crazy there in previous weeks. not much one can do. its been a wet season for everyone.

Above average public course

I play this course once per year when visiting my wife's family, as it's within 20 minutes of their house. It's a pretty good layout, and with tips over 7,200 yards it could be as tough as you want it to be. I've never had an issue with pace of play here, and i generally always play it on a Saturday morning. The only knock I'd give it from a playability standpoint is the greens are a little slow for my liking, and some of them are in worse shape than others, but I rationalize this as it's a public course that gets a ton of play. I paid $60 this last time I played, which is just on the cusp of being a little too much for a good public course. All told, I think it's a must play in the Harrisburg area, and it's in a convenient location.

Definitely worth the time to visit

Chose to play this course after looking through the Golf Now reviews on area courses. Course was in excellent shape with interesting hole layouts. Wide open fairways and elevated greens. Bunkers were in excellent condition as well. Will definitively come back and play again.

Best Value Out There

Dauphin Highlands is the best value for a golf course out there. Forget any of the reviews that claim the conditions are bad, because every time I play here, the conditions are absolutely fantastic and have been for the last couple years. Only bad thing about the course is the amount of league play (which is almost every day) which leads to an incredibly slow round of golf most of the time. Overall a fantastic golf course that is well worth the money.

Delay

We had an hour delay in the afternoon due to a morning frost delay. We made our tee time early enough to get all 18 in but with the delay were only able to get 9 in. Had to pay for 18 holes and because of the courses delay were not even given a refund for the remaining 9 holes. Employees are just there to collect your money... except for the starter, Jimmy.... great guy!!

Staff treatment is wonderful, but the greens were horribly bumpy and slow-slow, which made for a disappointing time.

From the tees, beautiful fairways and looking good. Then you get to the greens. Not the same quality as fairways, some rough destroyed sections. They play good, when no deformities are in your way.

For our first time there everything was solid. Then, near our finish the locals had no problem approaching us to complain. By no means were we blazing through our round, but well within the recommended time. It was very off putting. Other than this factor, I highly recommend this course. But beware, keep your play fast.

Busy on this unseasonably warm day

Pace of play was very slow but not unexpected considering how busy it was. Greens were in rough shape: aerated without warning, sandy and very long/slow. Rest of the course was in good condition considering the time of year and recent weather changes. They had us play the back 9 first and most people did not seem to be adhering to the 90 degree cart rule. As an added perk, they have a very nice selection of draft and canned beers.

I was impressed

I played Dauphin Highlands for the first time on a beautiful January afternoon. With that said, my review is rather relative given the time of year I played.

Since nearly all of the courses were still closed in the Scranton area I made the 2-2.5 hour drive to Harrisburg to play DH. It was certainly worth the trek down for some winter golf. The course overall was in very good shape. The greens were a little shaky but they were all puttable which was good enough to for me in mid-Janaury. The bunkers were in above average condition for this time of year. They all had rakes if you did end up bad spot that needed to be fixed before playing your shot (winter rules!). The fairways and tee boxes were all in great shape for this time of year.

Since I was a single I got paired up with 3 other guys. They were playing from the whites and I followed suite. Had I'd been by myself I would have picked the blues. Having not played in several weeks nor ever played the course the whites ended up being perfectly fine. I shot a rusty but pretty clean 84.The teeth of the course are the par 3's. I took 4's and each of them and never hit a "bad" shot. I thought the par 5's were also tricky. #16 was tough without having leaves on the trees. In the summer that has to be brutal hole. Club selection on your second shot is key.

Overall the course plays over rolling terrain with modestly tree lined fairways. The greens have quite a bit of undulation and slope. I can see them being quite tricky when they're being maintained. The back 9 is heavily influenced by a ravine that runs across several holes. The staff was more than friendly and the pro shop and bar seemed well kept and well stocked.
