First review

Highland Springs, to me, epitomizes QC golf on a whole. It's a fair design with average to above average upkeep. It is a great value.
Pros: Huge, undulating greens where very few pins leave you a straight putt. Risk/Reward Par 5's that challenge even the longest hitters. Overall strong design. Good draw/fade dogleg variety.
Cons: the river sand needs replaced and overall the bunkering needs some TLC. Greens start to show the volume of rounds too early in the season due to weekend hacks and their lack of divot replacement. These waterheads are also the culprit behind my last complaint and that's the pace of play on weekends. It was 6 long hours.
Highland is where I learned to golf. It's worth every penny you'll spend. I just wish they'd have the same attention to detail as the city courses in the Suburbs. It's a gem that could use a little polish.

Great place to play

This is a great place for any golfer to play. The course was in great shape and was a little soft thanks to recent rain. The fairways are decent sized and most have a rolling topography. The greens are large and nicely undulating. Has a good mix of trees/woods, sand, and water throughout. Good value as on certain days you get 18 holes and a cart for $25. Also, has a nice driving range for warmup. One of the many great places to play in the area.

What a course should be (With a different staff)

Every time Ive been here the staff has been rude and pretenious.

That being said the course is one of the nicer for the area and I can deal with the D-bags in the pro shop for 20 bucks a round for a nice course.

This place is ALWAYS packed ive bee nthere 3 times where i couldnt even get a tee time..best to go on week days midday
