We need rain in Central Florida

Nice course, love the layout. It’s dry and brown some place due to our present drought. Greens in good shape rolling nicely. Worth the price to play right now. I play here once a week.

A Gem Needing TLC

Highland Reserve is a fun place to play golf but the course needs some better maintenance with respect to the quality of the fairways and tee boxes. Too many weeds and bare spots make the course less fun to play.

TLC

Needs a lot of tender loving care. The fairways are not well kept. Too many wild bushes have invaded it. The greens are slow but in good conditions. They have to return it to the conditions it was in the mid 2015.

Dry Dry Dry

Play this course a few times a years for past three years. This is the worst I’ve seen it.
I hope a smoker doesn’t drop a match. Poof ! She would burn up.
People are great. But they stopped taking care of it. And boy does it show.

Great layout, great staff, terrible course conditions

Nothing else to say. Staff is great, good course layout, course condition is a little above a cow pasture. Looks like the greens were the only things to be watered. Tee boxes and fairways were a mess.

Don’t waist your money.

This course needs a lot of work. Tee boxes have no grass. Fairways very little grass and hard as a rock. Greens very bumpy and a lot of bare spots. The collars were nothing but crab grass and weeds. Play this course a few times a year and was looking forward to the great layout. The eleven of us were very disappointed and won’t be back for a while.

Very nice views on most of the holes.

When our group golfed there were players directly in front or behind us. We played right along and finished in about 3 hours.

Kind of mix feelings. Pace was great. Layout is nice but the course looks like rundown place. But I did have my first hole in one on 8th hole.
