Bare fairways

It was my first time playing this course. I enjoyed the layout ,Pace of play was excellent but the fairways (and driving range) were totally bare.
Staff was very friendly and actually got us out early due to s no show.

HR is getting better

Course conditions are improving, as the fairways are starting to fill in. Still some hard pan and tight lies. The burmuda grass is always tough and the greens are very challenging.

Looks good from a distance

The course overall is interesting. Greens are challenging even with the green paint to make up for their lack of grass. Fairways by in large were patchy with a lot of bare dirt patches. Pace was ok but the front nine having a par 3, short par 4 and then another par 3 lends itself to backing up groups.
The driving range is in horrible condition as it is difficult to find grass to hit off of. Staff are the best thing about this place...

Nice start to our trip

Highlands is a great value and the staff are great. Limited food and bar but adequate and the staff behind the counter hustles. The greens were the best we have seen them and the tees and fairways were fine-some dry areas. Morning round pace was great-afternoon round was held up by a foursome that the staff tried to move along without success.
This course is a nice kickoff for our trip to Orlando

LOVE HIGHLANDS RESERVE

As a snowbird who had been coming down for 11 years now Highlands Reserve is always a go too course. Try to get at least 4-7 rounds here every Winter. Course is well maintained. Staff exceptional. Fun course to play and fair for all levels of player. I really never have anything negative to say about this golf course. As long I keep coming here in the Winters Highlands will always be on my list. I always try to get my first few rounds prior to mid January because the rates are much lower and then after mid January look for Golfnow Hot Deals as the rates are higher. Rate s are still good compared to a lot around but when here for 4 months and want to play a lot of golf the hot deals come in handy! Highly recommend Highlands to all golfers.

Nice Greens

A little bit pricey for the conditions (fairways were very dry and sparse in places) and pace of play. Greens were very nice though. Staff also very friendly.

Sun?

Played in the rain. Not much grass on the fairways. Lots of cut down trees in the rough. Needs quicker maintence. Not worth the money.

Almost there

Heard about this course from a friend and we went and tryed one round.
Played with 2 wimen and they scored wery well as the course play´s wery short for them. Could be a good course but the fairways are not perfect. The Ties are not good, uneven and grass to high. and greens are almost there but not perfeckt.. Bunkers ok but people do not clean up after them self so I was not happy haveing to rake after a lot of players

Nothing Special

Just another average Florida course. A couple of greens had some bare spots ( probably disease). Fairways were a little thin. Even at a discounted price ($53) I thought it was over priced for the over-all experience. Pace of play was good ....right at 4 hours. I'm probably a little biased to northern courses where they actually have grass!

Well run location

From arrival to departure this place seems to be well run. We teed off exactly on our time 8:12 AM and finished at 12:10 PM. Bunkers are plentiful but well manicured and not a mess like some other courses. Fairway grass is thin but playable and the greens are in good shape.. Overall a good value.

Course was a decent layout but poor conditioned fairways and greens. Pace of play average. If money was put into improving fairways and greens more would play.

Very enjoyable time

What was intended to be a 3 week stay was extended to 5 weeks largely due to the welcoming approach of Greg, Donnie and their team. We played 25 times during our stay which is testimony to the way we were looked after from day one.
