I like more each time
Play was a little slow today due to cart path only after all the rains.
My 6th time on the course and I very much enjoy it.
They should call this course the Wetlands instead of the Highlands. Very wet, cart path only, greens were ok but it was casual water all over the course.
Live just down the street so very convenient for me to play.
Live just down the street so very convenient for me to play. Unfortunately it was cartpath only due to our rains but did manage to finish most of the course.
Wonderful round of golf
As a twosome, we played in 3 hours and were not pressured by the group behind. Conditioning of the course was typical Florida Summer, i.e. daily rains affected mowing in some areas and others were in need of repair. The greens were true and held approach shots.
All in all, an enjoyable afternoon.
Tuesday on the highlands
The Highlands is a good course but today the fairways were very wet. (90 degree rule in place for most holes.
Greens in poor condition
I was fortunate to be playing, or so I thought before they were going to aerate the greens. Greens needed help. They lost a lot of edges on a few greens probably due to recent hot weather and no rain. Green speeds were also inconsistent. Pace of play ok. Really liked the layout otherwise. You get a resort feel when loading your cart and driving to the first tee which was nice. Will probably not play there again with other opportunities with similar rates.
Very good overall conditions. Some greens could use some work but a great value
Great Course in good shape
Highlands is a great course in good shape compared to others in the region. Only a couple of the greens had small problems and the fairways were very well taken care of.
My 1st time here
I went to this course and it’s a great deal for the money no doubt The staff was friendly the course was in so so shape could’ve been a little bit better but again for the price it was great no problems in the fairways it was mostly the greens needed a little bit of work
Slow play today
The course still looks good. And is playing well. Although no roll in the fairways. However, play was really slow today, no Marshall on the course to monitor slow play
Over four hours for the round.
BARBARA in the shop is helpful and friendly. And Mike setting us up in the golf cart couldn’t have been nicer.
Overall course is in rough shape. Tee boxes and greens are poor. Fairways are ok. Pace of play was very slow and no Marshall to improve the pace. Played same course 3 weeks ago and it was in much better shape
Has Become My Go-To Course
While I shave only played here 4 times, I now consider this my go-to course while in Sarasota.
I’ve played early morning, mid morning and late afternoon and the course has been in great shape each time.
Staff is friendly and helpful and players seem to follow etiquette well.
I enjoy the difference between the front (narrow and shorter) and the back (wide open and longer).
Favorite course in Sarasota
Sarasota local here and must say the highlands and the groves golf courses are beautiful and always make for a great round of golf! Will be back many more times!
This is a nice mature layout with a lot of really pretty holes. That said, this course is in dire need of some TLC. The greens are real bumpy and slow with large areas of rot. Probably cost me 7 strokes.
More three putts than I have had in years.. The tee boxes are hit or miss and there are a ton of weeds in the fairway...albeit nicely mowed. I regularly play the Groves course and was surprised at how the condition failed here.
