This was the first time that I have played this course. I read other reviews but decided to go and play there anyway so I can judge myself. I'm glad I went. The greens had just been seeded and you can see that they were coming back nicely. They should be fine in about a week. This has to be done at some point in order to let them grow. Staff was great! Pace of play was very good and fairways were in decent shape and are narrow so it makes you think about club selection. I will be returning again because I want to give the course a fair assessment. I had a great round and a great time.

The course is in terrible condition. Sparse grass on fairways, no grass on greens. They are seeding the greens, so putting is impossible. I haven’t played here for awhile as it was bad last year. It sure has gotten worse.

We we're not warned that the course was going to be over seeded that day and we did not get to play

Two holes because of this . Also the course had been arrated the week before and the greens were in bad shape.

Me and my wife played. Staff was very friendly, and we love how the driving range had many different yardage markers so you can practice many different clubs, know the distance your hitting them and have a target to aim towards.

Been a couple months since I played here, so I was surprised at the overall conditions. The Greens have held up very well. In fact, most of them on the back 9 are as good as any course in the area. However, most of the Tee Boxes and Fairways are back to the condition they were back in the late Spring/early Summer drought stage. The Fairways are so rough that they can shake you out of the cart if you aren't careful. I moved my ball to a preferred lay when I could find one within a 1 foot radius on the Fairway, but even then the ball would sometimes act like I was hitting off the cart path. I recommend this course based on the Greens. If some time/effort was put into making the Tee Boxes fit for use again and the Fairways smoothed out and seeded, I would praise this as one of the local gems. Right now, I'm staying away until I hear/read of some improvements.

It started when I went to get in the golf cart.. Everyone that was available had the seats taped. Some would scratch your legs if you had shorts on... After playing the 1st hole my cart was dead. So I had to walk back to the club house and pick out another gem.. I asked were the blue tee markers were and they said just play from any where. Almost all of the tee boxes were in very poor condition no grass on most of them. About a third of the greens were in great shape but very very slow. The other 2/3 of the greens were fair at best...I paid $10 to play and got a $6 golf course

If you purchase from last minute golf app, the guy in pro shop said he will not honor price unless its for 11:15 Even though they sell for different times. This could be a major problem if you are traveling to this course from a distance. Good thing is this course is affordable.

I wouldn't play here now. They only have 9 holes available so you have to play the back 9 twice. I paid so little because I had a $10 credit and a $10 reward.

I stayed away from this course for most of the season because of some bad experiences last year and poor reviews this year. I played it a couple of weeks ago and thought it was in much better shape than the reviews made it out to be. Played again today and it was even better this time.

The greens are in great shape. The are running just a touch slow, but are in pristine shape. The tee boxes and bunkers were ok too. There are a couple of fairways that look like they burned out at one point, but are on their way to recovery. Not quite as nice as say a Candler Hills or Twisted Oaks, but in much better shape than Spruce Creek.

Maybe the biggest perk is that the course isn't overbooked like some in the area. Last weekend I played Royal Oaks and it took 4.5 hours, this weekend I finished in 2.5 at Highland Hills.

That said, I do have two complaints that I hope the staff fix in the near future...

- The practice green is horrible. It's in worse shape than any fairway on the course. Shaggy and full of weeds. The good news is that its nothing like the rest of the greens... but the point of a practice green is have it be indicative of the rest of the course.

- They only have 3 tees out. For some reason they've decided not to put out the blue tees. The cards have them listed, the signs have them listed, and they are keeping up what look like the blue tee boxes, but for some reason they just don't put out the markers. Long hitters should probably stay away until they fix this over-site

Would give the course 3.5 stars if golfnow allowed it..
