Unknown hazards

The greens were in bad with large areas that had no grass and very sandy . Also the fairways and ruff had not been mowed for some time and anywhere there was a low area it was unplayable if you was lucky enough to find it .We only say one other person playing and we really felt the course should have been closed due the conditions.

Maintenance?

I played this course a few years ago and considered it one of the best in the area.
The greens are still good but the rest of the course has had zero maintenace. You can't tell thedifference between rough, fairway or t blocks. All are just weeds or sand.

Nice but ugly

It is such a scenic course with some lovely holes but the condition of every part makes it a real disappointment

Great Variety

Not a typical course for Florida. A fair amount of elevation change. Very friendly staff both in the Pro Shop and Restaurant. Greens are excellent. Fairways a bit hard and dry.

Fun course

We enjoyed the course and thought the layout good. Obviously an older course, but tees and greens in good shape. Not a long course but still challenging. Thorough enjoyed the day.

Great course in bad shape

The Highlands Ridge courses have been very nice in the past, but were taken over by a New York company that absolutely doesn't understand anything about running this type of business. At one time, the South Course restaurant was a thriving business, but it's now closed. The greens on the South Course roll OK, but are infested with weeds, and patches of sand. I understand the golf courses and common areas have been purchased by a new owner, and I wish him the best of luck. Hopefully, the courses will be returned to their original glory,,,

Poor condition

Played today the course is in poor condition tee boxes hadn't been cut recently and weeds on greens
All the resources seem to be invested in the north course
Disappointed to be charged full price when the course doesn't reflect the cost and no clubhouse open for a post game drink
Must do better before we will return
