The Highlands Golf Club
Went out on a Friday afternoon with my son. Teed off about noon and were done at 4. Not too crowded at that time. "Compact" course, but stil very playable

We played as a twosome. The course was fairly busy. We got stuck behind a foursome of hackers that we not excited about letting anyone play through. The marshal said he was going to pull them off at turn and let the 2 twosomes play through. That didn't happen! We were stuck behind them the entire back nine! We weren't in a big hurry so it wasn't that big of deal. For $20 it was a great time. The greens were in nice shape.

Course gone bad
I remember when this course was top class, even as a public course after it left being private. The pace of play is unbearable. Over 6 hours to play. The fellow hacks had no respect for the course or other golfers. They would take our balls from the middle of our fairway. They really let the place go I feel. Some points in the rough dont even seem like turf grass. Weeds are all over the place. The only bright spot is that the course is a donald ross, and the staff is friendly.

Staff was excellent, course in decent shape. It was challenging without being too difficult. I would say a good value for your money.

Fun with mature trees for shade
This is an old course, but one of my favorites.
It is a good one to be in the fairway, but if you are not you can still scramble and get decent score.
It is in great shape

Course is a bargain to play, for a classic Donal Ross lay out, but is a shame to see the condition it is in compared to when it was host to Senior Tour events in the mid 1980s. Cart paths are atrocious, even worse than most Michigan roads, with broken asphalt and pot holes the norm in many places. Fairways and greens are beat up. It is as if, by opening it to the public, the greenskeeper quit or just shrugs his or her shoulders because the current clientele do not replace divots or fix ball marks on the greens. Some bunkers had no sand in them to speak of. It made me sad to see it this way.

It was good to play there. But the staff doesn't mind to get on the way and doesn't seem to care to leaf blow 5 ft away from you driving the ball

Too many leaves even on fairway, but its fall I expected it.
