well designed course

Everything but one about this course I love The greens where in mint condition with subtle breaks and you ball gets a true roll with the perfect speed and smoothness of them Mt only complaint is I would like to seen a proper amount of sand in the greenside bunkers. I did hit one into one on a par 3 and well it was is my mind way too hard as there wasnt enough sand almost impossible to get under the ball so the sand will carry it out if they got some nice white sand in them I would say this course is perfect

Head to the Highlands

Despite much of the round being played in the rain, I loved the Highlands course. Changes in elevation, sloping tree-lined fairways and fast undulating greens make this course a good test, particularly from the tips where I played with a friendly member. If you are in the area you will definitely want to play this one. Staff were friendly, the member was fun to play with and, despite the lousy weather, I will definitely want to play this course again as often as I can.

House lined fairways.... No thanks.

This is a great course if you enjoy house lined fairways (not tree lined). We had children run out onto the fairway on one hole while we teeing off, had to scream at them as a ball was flying right at there heads. The course itself is in great shape and the staff is friendly. It's a shame I'm betting before all the houses rolled in this world have been a beautiful course. If you're looking for views play Hockley Valley, better views without the houses.

Learn to hit it straight. The fairways at The Highlands are very generous. You either need to play more appropriate tees or take a lesson.

Great course but get there very early

Course was in excellent shape and a challenging track. Stunning scenery in the fall.

Downsides were that they were understaffed at the pro shop. I had to wait 20 min in line to pay for me green fee which caused me to be late for my tee time. My fault for showing up late, right? In my defence, I went to the horseshoe resort and asked an employee where the course was 45 min prior to tee time. They said they were not sure but directed me to where they thought it was which was incorrect. How does an employee not know where the golf course is?

If it's your first time, go super early so u don't get lost. Expect to wait 15-20 to pay for green fee.

Nice place to play

Course was in excellent shape. Crew at the bag drop were a little slow and not that friendly or interested in their job. Could have had a marshall on the course as pace of play was slow, just over 5 hours. Beverage prices were a little high for this facility. Weather cooprerated and the game was average.

Stunning

This course is awesome from tee blocks to pin and has most holes isolated from the next so you have the benefit of playing each hole without distraction. A few have homes backing on them but this was not a problem. The tee times were properly spaced so the course was not jammed or slow, absolutely loved it!
