This is one of my most favorite courses in NC.
Not only is it great fun but it is beautiful. The staff are great and always very friendly. You can't go wrong by stopping in here and playing a round or two while in town.
So much potential, so dissapointed
Wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. That's it. Terrible course conditions. Clubhouse hasn't been renovated since 1950. Used to be a personal residence. instead of taking out the bathtub in the bathroom they just covered it with plywood.
Stunning views which makes it worth playing once. The conditions will make you not go back.
Don't bother playing the front nine. you'll be so disapointed it'll ruin the rest of your round. Play the back side only.
Course is in a gated community. Expected more from this course. Layout is insane. Many blind shots with no references for distance or direction on score card. Some fairways were completely covered with crabgrass and uncut. would not play here again.
Great, challenging course to play
This is the second time I have chosen to play here when I visited WNC and I again enjoyed the course over others in this area! The course is in much better shape than most in the area. I am told by members that there isn't much money being given to the course for upkeep and if that is the case, that is a true shame. The Superintendent and his staff should be commended for a fantastic job!! I look forward to returning again the next time I am in the area.
This course is in dire need of some maintenance. The tees and fairways were in poor condition, un-mowed, very little grass. The cart paths were all broken up asphalt in several areas. It seems like a nice quickly hilly layout of they can put some money back into it. The greens were in good shape, place of play was fine because no one was there. The price was 30, we had played elsewhere for the same $ the day before and had much better conditions, it was early in the season, but based on the review from past October conditions seemed similar.
Used to be a wonderful course. Not even average now. It looked like the only maintenance that ever takes place is the greens. Everything else just plain shabby. Looks like a management company has taken over. So sad.
Carts need seat belts installed
Bring your camera for awesome views of the area. Course was in fair shape but cart paths were horrible. Lots of houses on course and not much money spent on upkeep of course. Grat price on golfnow for course cause its not worth whaT they normally charge. Please stay on golfnow if you dont lower rates or not many people will play there.
Beautiful course. In good condition for the winter.
Cart paths are horrid...almost got whiplash 8 times...and lost my gear 5 times...major improvements are necessary.
Hi,my,names bryan. I,live in arden ,nc and,i,play high vista at least once a week. Super clean and,excellent greens. top 5,in wnc must play
Very nice course
I love playing here. Beautiful layout. Course in very good condition. Friendly staff.
Beautiful Views, Very Good Conditions!
Wow....pace of play was perfect. Conditions of both greens and fairways were very good. I love playing here and will be back again soon. The course is challenging, so I play the senior tees here.
Bring your A game!
The staff, track and majestic views make this experience worthwhile, regardless of your level of play. If the flat stick isn't working for you, expect to learn why all the other four letter words are taken. This course is a prime example of a mountain course inside a gated community. Only a few tight holes and the rest will give new meaning to "down-hill-side-hill" lie. Superior elevation changes keep club selection a guessing game until you're sure how far you can really hit that 6 iron.
Okay but not worth a 2hr drive. The course could be a real gem if they put a little more into maintaining some tee boxes fairways and rough. The putting greens were well maintained and undulated. They test your putting skills. Also the scenic views are nice. If you are in the area and get a Hot Deal , the course is worth playing, just not worth a long drive to play. Another thing was the absence or lack of yardage markers besides the 150 pole. That was a bit frustrating.
A surprising treat.
I enjoyed the heck out of this course. The views are so stunning, it's easy to put that last shank behind you. Although a bit noisy, the gas carts are a must as their is a lot of climbing. The cart paths on the front nine are in bad need of repair; if you have a bad back, beware. However, the back nine opens up and the going, both on the course and on the cart paths, is much smoother.
The greens were in excellent condition and the tees and fairways, especially on the back, were in better shape than reviews seem to indicate.
My wife was worn out by the course, but I loved it.
Course needs work
Tough course as I remember it, but some tee boxes are in need of repair. And course restaurant closed at 1:30 why? We could not get food, so we stopped playing after 9 holes to leave course to eat. Would not play high vista again till some changes are made on greens and tee boxes.
The course is challenging because of the length of the course, plus the hills and general course layout. I was surprised that the gold tees were not much different from the whites tees and that made especially challenging for us. The greens and fairways were in very good shape, much better than times I have played in the past, The rough has been left natural, so if you don't shot accurately, bring plenty of balls.
Varit;y of views
The course is beautiful, and challenges one to make the shots required to keep the ball in play. It presents a great variety of mountain views, and elevation changes. For those who care about cart path condition, proceed slowly or don't go.
This is one of my favorite courses in the area. Very scenic course. Has a number of hilly holes and the greens are undulating. The cart paths need work.
