We liked the course layout and the few holes we played were in excellent condition, but when the rain came and did not quit we had to give it up. We can't wait to get back and play all 18 holes of this course, it looks great.

Exceptionally nice layout. Staff in pro shop and starter very friendly. Course was booked solid. Play was slow with waits on every tee. Greens are good 7 out of 10 rating. Fairways are green, but have a lot of intrusion grasses such as St. Augustine. Nice course, overall.

This is a very nice course. It is in excellent shape, and you can see the care taken by maintenance. Attention to detail, is very noticeable here. The greens are moderately fast, but easy to read. I would strongly recommend this golf course.

No better course for the money, take the money out and there's still no better course in the area - I try to play every time I'm in the Highlands, always maintained well, course management is great, never issues with one of play. Quiet, clean, surrounded by nature, you're paying $22 for a course that if located anywhere but Avon park could charge $100/round easy.

Just go play there, you're welcome.

It was nice to see a good variety on the menu. The portion was worth the money. I can't say enough good things about this course. We drove 40 minutes to get there and it was well worth it.

Having visited Orlando for the last 5 years we decided to head south to play some new courses in the Lakeland area. The first one we tried was Highlands Ridge GC. What a great decision this was. Everything about the place was perfect. We will definitely be back next year.
