Nice course

Played the front 9 twice since the greens were being repaired. Challenging, clean, scenic and an overall nice course. Bratwursts we’re good. I’ll play again when all 18 are open

Great location

Easy to get too, and they never have a problem with standing water like so many other courses. I can't wait until they get all the new greens done. Having to play the front twice is ok, but not the best.

If I had known

My usual course I play on Wed. was closed due to high water on course. That's never a problem with Highland. When I looked at Golfnow, I saw a good price on a course that I know, never has water issues closing the course. But I wish when I had checked in they had told me the back 9 was closed. Probably wouldn't of made a difference since I had already paid, but someone should of mentioned that it was closed.

Wait for the renovations to be completed

Course is in poor condition, but is in the process of renovation. Probably worth giving a miss until renovations completed later this year

Front 9 twice

Had to give the course a lower than i would have like , but that’s because the back 9 was under repair.
Would definitely return .

Good course.

We’ve played this course many times since they first opened. It is a challenging layout for all tee boxes.
This may have been the sloppiest the course has ever looked, with weeds in fairways, tee boxes and around greens. Signs are posted to let you know that they are bringing in new greens “this summer “ so I’m not sure when that will be.
Despite the signs and the look of the greens, they still rolled true and that’s all that matters!
This is still a great venue and I would definitely recommend. It’s not the prettiest right now, but I’m confident they’ll bring it back to normal soon.

Nice layout

You definitely want to hit a straight ball or have good control. Get in trouble easily with traps and woods. Course needs some work, definitely a good deal price wise.

layout is wonderful for long drives

Wide open landing areas for big swings. Greens need help but playable, soon to be redone by course.
Wife played from same tee box and enjoyed the design and liked the overall condition of the course.

Good layout and very friendly. Unfortunately the greens are not very good at the moment but are scheduled to be relaid shortly.

Good condition

Looking forward to the new greens that are meant to be going in. They are mostly still ok but parts have been scorched or damaged.

Otherwise conditions are good considering the extreme heat we’ve been getting

TLC Needed - Amazing Layout

It almost feels generous given it 3 stars. First, I park and I’m greeted by the attendant with a cart - wonderful. The cart is comfortable, but no GPS. There were 2 USB connections. Neither one worked, but they had’m. The tee boxes throughout the course are beat up. The fairways a spotty and thin. The bunkers actually looked nice when there weren’t footprints in them, but l didn’t hit into one. Now the greens… oh my my… are they bad. 17/18 greens have spotty dried lake bed spots. With all the courses detractions, it is a wonderful layout. The holes are not boring. They are visually appealing with varying lengths. It’s just a shame they don’t take care it. There are signs that state they are redoing the greens this summer, but the only evidence l saw of that is some (fading) painted lines. Yet another course “what it could be”…

First Game of the holiday

Staff very friendly and accommodating, the course layout is good, but the only drawback is the greens.
it is signposted that new greens are due to be installed, but some of the greens are really not playable.
