Disappointing Play pace

We arrived in time for our tee time to find out there had been a frost delay which caused all the times to be delayed (understandable). A threesome was pushed in front of us despite having a later tee time. Ultimately was ~35 minute delay. From there, every hole we waited on. This caused our play time (from initial tee off) to end up being 5 hours which in my opinion is unacceptable. One of players mentioned to the course monitor that there was a significant hold up but that didn't seem to change anything. The reason I selected a 12:48pm tee time was assuming we'd be done before the sun started setting. That was not the case and ended up rushing the last 5 holes to wrap up before the sun set. Very disappointed.

Course with Great Potential

I played Highland Creek regularly when it first opened in the mid-90's and it was a great course. Challenging layout with excellent variety in the holes requiring you to hit all the clubs in your bag. It went into decline but in the past few years, they have pumped money into the course and it has improved greatly. I think they should continue to do so since the course has the potential to be one of the best in the area. The greens are good but not great and given the many slopes(arguably only one flat green on the course) makes putting here very challenging. Instead of golf carts they should give out ATV's given the poor condition of the paths. That said I still enjoy playing here and would recommend others to try it out.

Great Shape

The course, from tee to green, was in pretty good shape. Greens were in great shape, and tough to read, great challenge.

Fun and Challenging Course & Nice Staff

I very much enjoyed the course. The front nine offers plenty of lateral hazards and obstructions to help you practice course management and shot shaping. The layout of the course adds to the challenge with plenty of dog legs. I recommend playing this course if you want to get better.

Now, the cart path was also challenging. It looked like an earthquake came through and shifted the concrete up, down, left, and right. We also had a huge downpour of rain prior to my tee time, so I had to drive even slower to avoid the pools of water.

Very nice layout. Tee boxes were thin. Greens were sanded and slow to putt. Would like to play it in the spring.

Average golf @ Highland Creek

Average experience.
There are way too many blind shots with rolling hills and berms. You easily get in trouble with fairway and green side bunkers.

#18 is a 470 yard par 5. You have to clear about 150 yards of water which is fine as long as the wind isn't blowing
