Great value

Not too many bells and whistles but course is in great shape and price was right. Carts were older, distance markers were scarce at times, and no beverage service (although you see that a lot of places now)…if you want to nitpick they could step up those amenities. But staff and members were very friendly and in my experience that isn’t always when I use golf now for a private club. Cool spot and if I lived closer I’d consider joining.

Great value…challenging greens

Really enjoyed this course. For a $52 hot deal it’s a no brainer. Liked it more than most courses I find on GolfNow in the Richmond area. Fairways and teeboxes were in decent shape but greens were great…and fast. We played on a Monday which is evidently when they “paint” the course so I got blue paint on my shoes, sunglasses, or anything else that touched the ground. No cart service in Mid-June was a bummer but staff shortages are everywhere. Clubhouse beer and food selection is way above average. Nothing extra on the scorecard or hole-sign to help you navigate the course. But if your main concern is value for the course like 90% of the people on GolfNow, this is worth it.

Don't come hungry

Now that they've redone the greens there are very few ball marks on them since they are much firmer than before. They are quicker than some courses, but roll nicely. Tee boxes could use some work, but overall course was in pretty good shape. Snack bar was closed so there was no place to get a sandwich unless you wanted to sit down for a meal mid-round.

You must love fast greens

The course was in excellent shape and the greens are very fast. This is a pretty challenging course, which I enjoy, but not unfair. The people there are nice to deal with.

New greens are best in the area. Comparable to Pinehurst #4. Bunkers were loaded with real sand and played great. Only criticism is fairways. They are mostly POA Annua and very clumpy. Rarely get a good lie in the fairway.

Awesome course

I read a lot of good reviews about this course and decided to give it a try since I've already played most of the public courses within 50 miles of where I live. The guy working the pro shop was very welcoming and friendly which is always a good start. I grabbed some range balls to get warmed up and was slightly disappointed in the condition of the grass you have to hit off of. That's partly from other patrons not making uniform divot patterns and partly from the patchy grass on the range. The course itself was in top notch condition. The fairways were very pretty and well kept, unfortunately whatever grass they use grows very patchy and you can end up getting a poor lie from a perfect tee shot. The bunkers were also very well kept and had plenty of sand. The tee boxes were also well kept and in good condition. The highlight of the course was definitely the greens. They were amazing. Very well kept and rolling true and fast. Barely a blemish of any concern on any green that I can remember. The only real complaint I had from the day was I ended up getting put out behind a few older gentleman that were kind of slow which didn't really bother me, the problem was the guys behind me that hit down on me and my girlfriend a number of times and upset her to the point of not wanting to play anymore. No complaints about the course itself or the staff just about the other inconsiderate golfers that happened to be behind us that day. All in all its probably my favorite course in the area and I will definitely recommend to friends and I'll be back again really soon hopefully.

Excellent Greens

Greens were firm and fair. Course played well for the winter time. Relatively forgiving and open off the tee. Sand is still under construction.

Challenging course

Interesting layout. Greens were fast and in great condition. Lots of elevation changes. One of my favorite courses in the Richmond area.

Tough greens

This was our fist time playing here since the new greens. They are hard, fast, great looking . The course overall really isn’t that hard, but the greens now make up for it. There was one hole on the back nine, I had a downhill putt, I may have made a 1/2” stroke fort a 6 foot putt and it went 5 feet past.
I love this course and will def be back.

Lots of changes

Played Highlands today for first time in a few years and am surprised at how many changes have been done since last time.!! Brand new greens in wonderful Bermuda grass They’re perfect. Fairways are in great condition also and the paving of the cart path makes all come together as a great place to play.regardless of your score. I’d say The Highlands is the best conditioned public course in the entire Richmond area. If not, I really want to play the one(s)that are better.
