Unpleasantly Surprised

I have played this course multiple times each season since moving here 3 years ago. IT IS IN THE WORSE CONDITION I HAVE EVER SEEN IT IN.

They have two temp greens that should be rectified in a week. But that is not why the poor rating. No one green, of the remaining 16 greens were the same in terms of readiness. In fact, one of the temp greens were actually better than 4 of the permanent greens. Cart path only on the entire course was not warranted. But to be fair, 3-4 of the holes for cart path only was wise. While traps were raked the great majority of which were not playable due to standing water and/or insufficient sanding.

The price should have been 1/2 of the $40 fee. To be sure, HIGHLY recommend you give it a month before considering to play. And ask if it is cart path only, because it is so hilly, you are easily looking at 5 hour round. It takes time to walk up and down and over to your ball from the cart path.

While very disappointed in the condition, the staff was solid. The poor condition of the course should not reflect the fine staff that you will interact with.

Nice course

Played spring conditions - two greens were under repair. Nice track staff friendly. Would definitely play again. Things I didn’t like: should have N area on the range from grass not mats. Should be bells on the holes where the players in front in a ravine can let those behind know they are clear.

Early Season Conditions

Early season conditions make the course barely playable. Normally the course is in good shape but not today. The two back 5 holes have temporary greens. Speaking of the greens, they have spots of lengthy grass mixed with no growth. Getting true roll, especially on short, slow struck putts were not going to happen. Some of the sand traps showed evidence of water running through the bunkers with no attempt to fix them. Worse, the traps didn't even have rakes surrounding them. Understandably there was no drinking water on the course most likely due to freezing temps in the mornings. No port-a-potties (whatever they are called) either.

We got behind a 3-some who literally walk up and down fairway2 a number of times, at a very slow pace. I must have waited a full 15 minutes before I could hit one shot. I had thought that they may have let us pass them (short hole 4 par 3) but that courtesy never was granted. So we passed them a couple of holes later, after tired of waiting on each shot.

Early season golf is for practice for the spring gets in full bloom.

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!!
