Highlands

Great course to sharpen your game. Wind catches you on several holes. Play below the hole on the greens as they are very slick. #9 will humble the best golfers. Haven't found the secret yet but will.

Great place for the price.

I have alway enjoyed playing this course. Course conditions are a bit better than average for this time of year in SW Fl. The greens looked faster than they rolled and were in good shape.

Value Coursde

The fairways are a bit patchy but the greens are consistent and faster than you might expect for a course of this caliber, They are doing work on 3 or 4 hol;es but not too intrusive on play. Front 8 in 1 hour 15 minis and 3 and a half hours from there slow foursome with nobody in front of them. No course Marshall

Good Couse, Excellent Value For The Money

Used “Hot Deal” pricing for early afternoon round. Course was not crowded as it was a chilly & windy day. Played in under four hours. Nice layout which is also pleasing to the eye. Greens & bunkers in excellent condition. Tee boxes a bit shaggy but still in acceptable condition. Very friendly staff. Would recommend course & will go back again.

More investment in course

Organisation of players good but unfortunately the management of the course is getting worse by the season.

The fairways & the greens need to be reseeded also the bunkers need to be re sanded.This takes investment which it is obvious the people in charge do not wish to priorities.

Fun Round

Nice layout...course in decent shape. Not a big fan of the greens. Slow, fast, bumpy....Hard to get a good read on them. Otherwise, if you don't take your score to seriously you can have fun on this course. 4 1/2 hour round.

Good course. Awful pace of play.

The Highlands is a nice course, and we usually enjoy a round there. Unfortunately, we were stuck behind three foursomes of the slowest players I have ever encountered on a course anywhere. The groups were playing among themselves in some sort of contest, without regard for anyone else on the course. The pro shop was notified, and the pro came out to speak to the lead group. No compliance. After more than five hours with three holes still remaining, we left the course. Ridiculous!

Smooth fairways, fast greens

Some of the Tee boxes need a little work. Fairways were in nice shape. 2 or 3 greens need some repairs. Greens were running pretty good. We only paid 20.00 dollars for the round. So I really can’t complain.

Poor condition

Considering it is low season, the maintenance of this course is very poor

Tee boxes with big holes in them, poor drainage whe it has rained

Generally the whole course seems to have been neglected .

It is reasonably priced but I could not recommend it to anyone
