Course was in good condition a little dry due to hot weather, just made ball go further! staff was awesome we had a great experience!!
Not my first time playing here.
-Sprinklers running through all fairways till noon. Took 6 holes for them to shut off.
-Tee box uneven and burnt. No grass so my shoes slipped during drive.
-Overall “grass” in horrible shape. (Maybe try watering in the morning””
-Ground and greens so hard the ball was bouncing over so you can’t plan a good shot.
This course used to be nice and for whatever reason, now it’s dissapointing for $45 and it’s one I won’t be playing anytime soon.
Good Fast round
Course good shape..fairways good greens good pace of play excellent
4 out or 10
This course needs work. The layout is nice, off fairway grass is too high in most areas and the cart paths are aweful.
We were unable to find many balls just off the edge of the fairway. Also lost a couple in the fairway.
Cannot believe the conditions
Worst course I've ever golfed, never in my life have I quit and walked off before finishing a full 18 holes until this experience. I've Been to this course for 3 straight years multiple times a season, never had any complaints other than the thick rough, but this season I could not believe how the course has not been kept up to good playing conditions, it made the worst courses I've ever been to look like gems now that I think back. You should never lose your ball in a fairway and there should be actual sand in the bunkers not rocks or bees nests, and weeds growing everywhere. You easily can lose balls in the thick rough and never find them under all the grass clippings not being picked up. It's frustrating to hit a good shot and lose your nice pro v1. The greens were sticky and spongy couldn't have been slower, I just am appalled that on a holiday weekend or any day for that matter that they charge that rate, I even got it on a hot deal off golf now and it's not their fault but it was not worth the deal, I wouldn't have paid $5 to golf this course, I hate to give this review because the staff is friendly and courteous but I just can't believe the course was this bad weeds literally all over the course, I'll stick with boulder point in oxford for $25 they keep standards high and for the price it can't be beat. Needless to say this experience will keep me from ever coming back to Heather highlands.
Just awful! I knew this about this course based on being a local. I didnt realize it was as bad as it is. Needs new ownership
Example: This course has great features
The time to spray for dollar spot is before you see it forming on the greens.
Couple chops stole my ball on the dogleg par 5 6th.
Exactly what you would expect for $23.
Nice Layout and large Green but
Nice Layout but course must be finically stressed that is the only thing that can explain why so much dollar spot and fungus patches on green.
Wanted to Play
I booked for 7-28-17 at 10:44a , but unfortunately the night before I had a sciatic nerve issue , I could not walk without a lot of pain , could not make it to the course. Called the course to see if I could play another time they had me call golfnow , golfnow would not credit me . So how it goes.
Would play there again
Was a pretty good experience overall. The course could use some work with the details; traps, trimming, tee boxes, etc... but $20 for 18 w/cart is tough to beat.
Good Practice Course
The Pace of play was slow. You had to keep your ball in the fairway, you couldn't find your ball because the grass was so long, they should of closed this course the 1st of October.
Shaggy rough but great price
Course was in great condition except the rough. If you hit your ball out of the fairway you could spend 15 minutes circling around trying to find your ball. Multiple occasions my partner and myself couldn't see our ball 5 feet away because it was completely covered in the rough.. maybe it was just close to the end of the season and they relax on mowing the rough.
Always in great shape and good people behind the scenes
Heather Highlands is always in great shape and the greens are huge and roll fast and true. This course has been consistently rated among the best and the super and the owners have been there for as long as we've been playing there. Guessing they have been doing this for 40 years or more. One of our favorite places to play. Always fun and the rates online are the best in town. Highly recommend.
The Best for the money.
Played this Saturday and just beat the rain. An outing followed us and the staff was well prepared for any weather as many golfers were inside watching golf while they waited. Deb and her staff are pros. Love the place.
The fact that this course is in the top 25 rankings and shepherds hallow isn't it, is a audacity. The fact that they charge 42 dollars for 18 holes, and the greens are bummpy, super soft, don't roll true, and haven't been moon in at least 2 days, is absurd. Most of the fairways and tees haven't been moon in quite some time it looks like. If they don't have the money or the staff to properly maintain the course, don't change a top course price. And the rough is so long if you hit your ball into it, you can't find it. This is all my opinion. They have some great holes, it's just the maintenance on the course is really lacking.
If you play from the whites or Blues this course may suit you. If you play from the "tips" or black tees it will frustrate you since they haven't pruned a tree in years here, leaving long hitters with very tight landing areas (after you get through some trees). As for ladies tees - hap-hazardly place out in the fairway. Most of the time the tee box was just in the fairway with no grass cut or sloping or just in terrible shape. Thanks but no thanks. I think if you want to keep golf growing and people playing you need to keep your course worth the price. For women this was a joke. Finally - greens were shaggy. Its August not October. Don't give up the greens yet!!! Sorry cant recommend. Spend your cash elsewhere.
