The Highlands Golf Club
First Time Out in 2015
Sunny, no wind and 40 degrees. To be fair, the course had only been open for a week and the grass had not started to grow. It looks like a good course for the money.

Good price for fall golf
Lost 4 balls in the leaves, but what can you expect for November.
Couse is still in decent condition. Lots of leaves in a few places.

Course was in good shape - great design - great greens. Play was slow at times.

good layout but over rated
Had high hopes heard a lot of good things about the course. enjoy Donald Ross designs. The course was beat up bad, divots and ball marks everywhere. Greens were good but no one repairs ball marks. The fairways were poor, weeds all over, had some bad lies in the middle of the fairway. Numerous areas that were muddy or dried up with little or no grass. I'm glad I got a deal because I wouldn't pay any more. Group in front of us were slow constantly looking for balls refused to let us play through. Caused a back up. The staff sent a 2 some out onto the 8th tee in front of us due to a tournament. Unbelievable. disappointed would not go back.

Hope you have 6 hrs to kill
I really enjoy this layout. I live right by the course and it used to be run well. I have worked in the golf industry for years and I understand the game is struggling and you have to make money. It's a shame to see how poorly the staff runs this place now. The rates are good but don't even bother making a tee time because you won't go off on time. Every time I go there which used to be frequent it gets worse. The last time I played it took 3 and a half hours for 9. Ridiculous. The staff has no courtesy for the people who actually have the decency to make a tee time. They will pack 5 groups into one time. I am just bummed to watch this great course deteriorate so rapidly to the point where you can't even factor in having fun because you will be out there for six hours. Who enjoys being on the course for almost a full work day? All I can say is I hope the staff starts to show some pride and start worrying about what happens on the course and not just the cash register

Fun course to play
Behind a "gold tee" league so pace was super slow. While the league did their best, overall extremely slow 9 and was not able to get into any rhythm. Greens and overall course layout are just challenging enough to make it fun. Good deal for the quality of the course.

Average course but packed
Good little course that had some challenges. Got it for less than 20 bucks thru a hot deal. For that price you couldn't beat it but we waited for every shot we hit. A little surprising considering it was a Wednesday morning. It was only my first time playing it so not sure how it normally is but did seem to get a lot if business. The course was in good shape not manicured but very playable. The greens were very fast.

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
