Highlands Golf Course
Highlands Golf Course in Tacoma, Wash. is a nine-hole course that can be played in just over an hour. All of the holes are par 3 except for one par 4. It's not your typical nine-hole course, the layout is like a full-size course shrunken down to a par 3 with several challenging elements that will test your short-game skills. The terrain is relatively flat, making it an easy golf course to walk, and it is relatively protected from the winds. The sand traps are sparse but strategically placed, and water hazards come into play occasionally as well. Highlands Golf Course is an ideal layout for beginners to get some short-game practice, but for more advanced players it's an excellent option for a quick round that is more challenging than your average nine-hole layout.

Not worth $20
Course is under renovation. They are not offering a discount to make up for poor tee boxes and fairways. Multiple tee boxes were 95% sand. Hole #5 was closed. Staff did not give any warning about course conditions. Will not be returning to play here.
Course is having some repairs done so it’s still in shambles but I’d you want to work on your short Irons good course for that.
Very poor conditions!! It was like playing in a sand box.
Course layout was fine, but not ready to play on until they finish the irrigation and reseed the fairways
The greens are in great shape. The fairways are bad and the tee boxes are abysmal and mostly missing. What do you expect for $13.50?
Great Staff,value,pace of play
Great staff, course layout and pace of play! See Bob if you need anything.
The course is in horrible shape. We saw several squirrels that were dead where you are supposed to tee-off. Don’t play here, spend your money somewhere else.
Fairways are rough and greens are in poor condition. Hole six was closed without notice prior to play. We had a single golfer in front of us playing three balls and was not consistent in her play, very poor golf etiquette.
I was very pleased with the staff and the nice patio dining area. But the course is having new sprinklers installed now. That means you couldn't play Hole #1 when I was there. Holes 2, 3 and 4 also have excavation/repair work that hasn't been repaired yet. pretty rough overall with terrible tee boxes that had a ton of sand on them. So you can only play 8 holes but they say you can hit a few extra balls to make up for it. Very friendly folks - but I'm not planning to return at least until 2022. But because of their friendliness, I WILL return!
