Great layout, great conditions, challenging but fair.

Highlands Reserve is in very good condition. Greens are rolling true and the fairways are also in great shape. The rolling hills are a delight for a Florida course. The variety of tees make for a challenging but fair course for all handicaps. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a very good course and a fair price; this is it. Enjoy!!

Review of Highland Reserve golf course Davenport Fl

I have played this course about 10 times in last few months. The course and greens are in excellent condition. The staff is excellent. Tell you all about the course before you play. To include pin placement and other things about the course. It can rain all day or night and you never get rained out and can ride the golf kart anywhere on the course. Amazing drainage. Never closed.
The golf pro and his staff are excellent.

They are working hard

I loved this course. Challenging. It may not be for the golf “purist”, but if you can get past the fact that they are busting their humps to make this a great course, then you should definitely enjoy it. Staff was phenomenal and extremely nice.

Nice course, good condition, we enjoyed the round

Second time in a week playing this course, really enjoyed it.
Friendly staff, and the only time (apart from the first time we played here) that a staff member has driven our cart out to us in the parking lot as we unloaded our clubs. A simple thing, but very much appreciated.

Not too long (played off the white tees) and most holes didn't penalize a wayward tee shot too much (as a slicer off the tee, I like that !). Greens were firm and true.

Great value for money (we paid around $30), but some of the fairways could do with a more frequent cut....there were a lot of 'foreign grass' tufts that stuck up and spoiled the look of many fairways, but generally the course was in good shape, and we liked it a lot. (I guess, to be fair, it helped that I played well and carded my best score for a long time !)

Improving conditions

Played here in April…It was awful. I stayed away since, but drove by occasionally to see how things looked. I decided to give it another chance.

Conditions have definitely improved since April. Still a long way too go, but much better. Most greens were very good. Tee boxes are mixed and fairways were about average.

Staff is GREAT. Nice carts, and the Brats at the turn are something to look forward to.

I’ll be back as long as it continues to improve

Great Value

Course was not perfect, but better than average. Price was only $26, so I did not expect much, but was surprised that it was in good shape. Greens were a little bumpy due to aeration a few weeks ago. Very few water hazards, but does have some ruff which was mostly weeds Staff was extremely friendly.
