Highland Lake Golf Club
Excellent first experience.
I played Highland Lake for the first time yesterday. The course was in very nice shape for it being the beginning of September. The greens weren't too fast, nor too slow. The fairways were well kept, and even the roughs were shorter than my home course. There are a few areas of untended long grass, so those provided a few challenges along the way. Several holes have hidden greens from the tee box, which was fun for me. This also provided a little bit of a challenge. I found myself almost getting lost a few times, as it was my first time at the course, but once I figured out the layout, I was fine! There are plenty of bunkers and trees to keep things interesting, but the trees also provided plenty of shade on a warm and sunny September afternoon. I played 18 holes by myself in under 3hrs, and that included waiting on several holes towards the end of my round as I caught up to groups that were playing ahead. I didn't realize that the yardage markers are on the cart paths until later on in my round. All in all I had a great experience at Highland Lake, and will come back and play again, as I want to improve my score!

Ok to play for hot deals
This is an average city owned course that charges more than a local country club course. The course is well maintained, but they could do away with the 2 foot tall grass surrounding every hole. One bad shot and your ball is GONE! I play here when the local country club is closed to the public for tournament play. It's an ok course to take advantage of a hot deal on.

great place to play
This is an excellent course for players of all handicaps. The various tee locations can challenge anyone's skill level. The back tee plays long, the rough is to be avoided , you need to plan where you want your miss hits to be and it will test your long irons on the par 3's.

I was able to book a round through golfnow.com and the faculty, as usual was in pretty good condition. The greens were pretty slow considering our lack of rain. The fairways were in good condition. Over all it was an enjoyable round of golf

Very good course for the money
The course was long enough to make the holes challenging, but open so not too difficult the novice player. Very large greens, and in good shape. The par 3 holes were longer than most,165-180 yards, which were difficult for the 2 ladies playing with us to reach. However, all the par 5 , the ladies were given a good advanged. Overall, the course in good shape, and good value for the money. 7/26/13
