The landscape was gorgeous

It's a beautiful course with lots of gullies and hills that make it challenging.

Beautiful Course!

To golf in 70 degree weather in SE Wisconsin in November is almost unheard of. We had the pleasure of golfing in this, and chose the Highlands at Lake Geneva and were very happy with our decision. The course was still in great shape. We had to work with the falling leaves, so finding balls was challenging on some holes, but the way the course was maintained all year still showed at this time of year. If you are in the area and get the chance, I would definitely recommend this course!

Love me the Highlands

As always playing the highlands is a treat. The course was in great shape for November. The greens were really moving.

I am a bigger fan of the Highlands then the Brute at Grand Geneva. The Highlands I believe is a much better layout and really requires you to think on a lot of shots. Especially holes 8-11. Those I really can make or break your round. #9 is by far the hardest par 4 in southern Wisconsin. 430 Par 4 with an impossibly landing area with OB on the left and a cart path on the right that send your ball in to the OB, then straight up hill to a green with a false front. A 5 is a great score.

Highlands has alot of birdie holes and or with a bad drive they a double bogey holes so make sure your drive is on point.

My only complaints is there is never any rangers so play can be slow. Also the driving range is huge and yet they have you hitting off of mats make no sense.

All in all I enjoy this place go play it for sure.

Need better informed

I called the pro shop to know the timing of aeration and informed that it was done month ago. Well...green was too bumpy to predict the line. The 17th hole was closed for x-mas decoration which was not informed.
Even then we did enjoy the course very much.

Great Round

Course was in great shape. Some holes and pin green slopes were challenging. Very scenic views and elevation changes. 2 holes were cart path only and probably not necessary.

Beautiful & challenging course, very well maintained

Played on Saturday with my 3 buddies and it was a great experience. the course is very well maintained though the green is aerated hence a bit difficult to judge the putting line.

The pace was good in front 9, however got stuck on hole 10 with 3 groups piled up to tee off, waited about 15 - 20 mins and not sure why. Waited almost every hole in the back 9 and finished 40 mins later than normal pace. Hopefully rangers can come out to ensure the pace is on track.

Great course, large greens and bunkers.

First time playing, in mid-October and a relatively calm day, cool and sunny. Enjoyed this challenging course. Some unique holes, watch the pro's tips for some of these before you play, particularly #3.

Most challenging greens played in a long time

Unfortunately, it rained on and off the round so it wasn't the most ideal weather to play in. However, the course was fantastic and in superb shape. The greens were the most PGA like I've played all year. No straight putts unless an easy tap in. Make sure to practice lag putts as well.
