Forced to walk

Upon arriving at the course, they told us no power carts were allowed on the course, even though the course was open. We had to walk or not play... not the best of service and wasn't given the option to play the red course or anything other than walking. No food or services at the turn, so after walking the front, no food or beverages available at the turn! Very disappointing.

First Time Playing

Forced to end round early

Booked an evening tee time and everything was going well, but on the 14th green we were told that all carts need to be returned to the clubhouse by 8pm. We were not told of this rule before the round and there was over an hour of sunlight left when we were forced to finish our round. No partial refund was offered or given. The staff was rude when explaining this rule and did not care about us not being able to finish the round we had paid for. I will never return to this course and I will never recommend it to anyone else

Practice Play Highlands Blue

Almost had the course to myself so great practice time. Tees and greens in very good condition. Fairways ok. Course pretty straight and long. People were friendly. I’ll come back for another practice round.

If You Like the DMV, You'll Love This Place

A couple of weeks ago I showed up to the course on a Thursday afternoon. Before I got to the clubhouse, the starter asked me if I had a tee time. I did not and he told me that I couldn't play. They had a few leagues going out - no problem. So, the next week I made a tee time to ride 9 on the blue course. I checked in at the pro shop, got a receipt and a cart, then went to the tee. The starter came out and told me that I couldn't play the blue course. Why not? Course policy. But I've already paid! Doesn't matter.

Highland Park is a great piece of property, a nice layout, and has improved a lot over the last couple of years. The next step is to improve the professionalism and friendliness of the staff.

They made it work

We had a tee time reserved for 9:30AM. When we arrived there was a college tournament under way. After some confusion the staff was able to move us to the two 9-hole courses.

No carts

There was a complete shortage of carts. The wait time was 3 hours minimum for a cart. Overall the course was easy though and I would recommend if you want to walk.

Solid test.

Both Highland courses, Red and Blue, were both in very poor shape not too long ago. Both have come back nicely. Looks like they put someone in charge that knows what they are doing and you can tell they are putting money into the upkeep. I grew up on this course. So glad it’s playable again. Does the course have rough spots? Sure. The greens have always been the strong suit of the course. When I played they were aerated, but once they come back, they are going to be great. Country club like greens. True. Fast.

Excellent Value

This is a long, straight course. Nothing particularly fancy. Every year the quality of the greens and fairways improves. Today the greens on the Blue course were excellence! The staff are wonderful. There are no frills, no hot food, which is not an issue for most. Over, it is an excellent value.
