Course was in great shape. Greens rolled very good. Rough was kept at the height that was manageable. Overall a fun day for my buddies and I. The price was awesome with golf pass... cannot beat it. The staff was awesome as usual. Kudos to them.

Amazing views!!

Played this course a few days after Chesdin and much prefer this course! Absolutely stunning views on many holes with a lot of undulations. Several downhill holes and many up hill holes. Layout is magnificent. A lot of trouble to be found, definitely not a course for a beginning golfer!! Choosing clubs was challenging also due to the uphill and downhill nature. I would say 12 holes have 1 to 2 club drops or rises!! The par 3’s are fun, there are 5 par 5’s which makes it score able too!! Definitely a shot makers course. Need to strategize your way around the course. Next time I play should be much better Bc I will know the layout and where I want to hit the ball.

Sooo HOT

Well, it was bound to happen. For the first time all year, the greens have started to show a little wear and tear from the high heat we have been experiencing but are relatively in good shape. The rough off the fairways needed cutting as it was longer than usual....and I should know. Haha. The only thing that I might add is that they should place a water cooler full of water bottles at some of the holes on the course. There are no beverages being sold on the course and the only place you can buy the refreshments to cool you off is at the snack bar. With as much business as they are getting during this pandemic, I am sure they can afford to go to Sam's club and get a lot of bottled water and place them in some coolers with ice for the golfers. Think of it as an investment to your customers to stave off dehydration so that they can return to your hospitable establishment. Still love the course and still love playing there. Staff is extremely nice and the people that play there are courteous and play at a pretty good pace. Always recommend this place. Not too hard for a novice but still challenging for good golfers to enjoy, too.

Just an all around great friendly place to play!

Staff is super friendly. Course is fun but also challenging. I love the elevation changes throughout the holes. Especially hole 3 and 4. Hole 14 is also a great hole on the back nine.

I for one love that this course has 6 par 5s and 3s. It allows you to score well if you are striking it well. Lots of risk reward.

Today it was extremely hot! Maybe 105 heat Index. The Marshall checked on us frequently and even gave us free Gatorade and water.

Even when I’m hitting it poorly it’s a great day at the highlands golf club!

Tuff track

Overall the course was in good shape, the greens were a little slow due to the watering, because of the heat.

Nice course, friendly staff...but beware social distancing in carts

Loved the course, friendly staff, masks required in the Pro shop. All good However, when I checked in I was told that on weekends they put two people to a cart. That doesn’t work for me in the current state of COVID-19. They were able to accommodate my request for a single cart so it wasn’t a problem, but you should check in advance. Note that I started the review with friendly staff and they really were super nice,

All around awesome

This course first caught my attention by the layout of the holes. Five par 5s and five par 3s. Gives every level of golfer a great opportunity to score well. The pace of play was the best of any course around. We played in just under 4 hours with a 15 min lunch break at the turn. And that was with 4 people. Greens were slightly on the “slicker” side and ran about as true and any other course around. The type of greens i like. The only little thing I could complain about is that they told the 4th player (who wasn’t with me and my other two friends) to get in the cart with our single partner. Wouldn’t be an issue if it wasn’t during a global pandemic. I know it’s a frowned upon to have 3 carts in one group, but people’s health and safety are number one. Asking two random people to share a cart is not safe anyway you look at it. But the guy was really cool and we had a great time none the less. Definitely will be back to this course soon. Highly recommend!

Good Course for an "Emergency 18"

Some people try to sneak in an "emergency 9" after work. I decided to stretch that to 18 holes on this day, finishing in just under 2 hours (with a cart, obviously).

The course is in the best shape I've seen it in a while and you can see the improvements around some of the greens that they continue to make.

Pace of play obviously wasn't an issue and never really is here despite how busy they are. Props to the staff for keeping things running smoothly!
