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

Average course in average condition

Enjoyable to play. Is short, but narrow with plenty of water on almost every hole. It's tricky, but greens are fairly generous in size. I enjoyed playing it the 2nd and 3rd time, but not the 1st. The conditions could be better as some of the fairways were in sub-par conditions, and the cartpaths were bruised quite badly.

Highland ridge south

I have been playing here for 10 years in the winter months, I know that they have had a lot of rain and that the course does not drain well. But some French drains would really help . The greens were poor , very slow and had some fungal thing going on. It used to be in much better shape I think they are more concerned with the north course. Hope it improves otherwise I won't be back this winter!

Hidden jewel

I truly enjoyed this course. Due to a mistake on my part I asked the staff to play Highlands north instead of south ,without blinking the answer was No Problem. The course is a jewel, the staff very accommodating and ready to help at every turn.The course is in excellent condition and the play is brisk ,nice job.You will enjoy your round and the club house is beautiful. The only complaint I have are there are not enough air conditioners on the course. Just kidding go there uyou will enjoy

Great condition for this time of year

Will play again soon. Appeared that the greens had recently been aerated but grass had grow back in and ball rolled well. Fairways were well filled in a in above average condition. Only issue was low laying areas had water. But nothing course could have done as we have received above average rainfall recently.
