Toothless from the drought

What is usually a very challenging 9 with 3 foot tall fescue growing between the fairways is, for this year at least, reduced to an interesting links layout with dirt between the fairways. The fescue has all burned. So, if your shot misses the fairway, you can see it and hit it quite easily, whereas normally it would be almost impossible to find. However, the view over the ocean is still magnificent, and it gives the feel of playing a Scottish links course without having to fly across the ocean.

Poor condition.

So disappointed after the hype of a true links course. Fairways and rough burnt out. Hardly any views dur to horse and trees. Lighthouse hidden behind construction wrap just to steal even that view. Oh well.

Oldest course in America

It was sunny, windy, cloudy all at once. Although not long very challenging with many uphill, downhill, sidehill lies every shot .Staff were friendly and welcoming.

True Links Course

This was my 3rd time playing here and the fescue had grown more and made it a little more difficult. It's a hidden gem, is only 1 of 5 links courses in US. Francis Oumit used to play here so it's a great experience with great views of Atlantic. Also walking 9 is cheaper than many places on Cape.

WOW

I have played Highland ohhh maybe 100 times and I hope to play another 1000 before I die!

pace of play is generally a bit slow, the course is short, and the conditions aren't anything to write home about (although, I played here last fall and for some reason the course was absolutely pristine out of literally nowhere.) but this golf experience is just as unique and enjoyable as any other, especially for the cape.

The scenery is beautiful, the wind howls, the scape and grounds are generally untamed. It is a classic old school golf course that has probably seen little to no change since it was built...

If this course was lengthened on a few holes and the conditions were always as pristine as they were that day last fall I referred to earlier in this post. This course would be on everyone's radar. But, this is not the case and so this hidden gem is overlooked.
