A good course!!!

I have played Highfields many times and have always enjoyed my round. They have several sets of tee boxes so everyone can be challenged.
The greens and the tee boxes are always in great shape. I would be advised that not everyone who plays there fixes their divots on the greens.
A challenging course suitable for every level of player..........

Just a great day

...chill passed as the sun rose...the mega leaf blowers were out and the fairways just a delight...yes, one can lose a ball if you get near the piles on the side.....

...remnants of the FALL foliage still visible on back 9 and course with all the lack of rain was just right...

...the aeration from back when ever seems to have finally grown in(played about 10 days ago) and the ball rolled true...with the nuances all around the cup to the ball and back, thing TWO putt and you will be fine..
...will absolutely try to get one more round in this season if the weather permits...

Great Views only add to the round

The drought is STILL impacting golf courses, and this course has done an exceptional job of managing its impact...the aeration occurring in the past several weeks continues to struggle and impacted many many putts from all four players...as the golf ball often looked like a basketball being dribbled ...the fairways are marvelous...just wish fellow golfers would repair their divots...use two or three tees if you dont have the repair toold...cant wait to play it again...oh, and do bring your camera along, the view at this time of year, on the BACK NINE will...keep you warm in the long cold winter...

Perfect Fall Day

Overall the course conditions were excellent. Wet in spots but that was because it rained a lot prior. So really drained well. The layout is with some fun holes and some spectacular holes 7-9 & 12-16. The bad spot on the course are #1 and #10 where too often players are in the wrong fairway or hole. The par 3s #s 2, 6 and 11 are mediocre. Personally, I'm not a fan of courses lined with houses like Highfields. During the summer the greens are in better shape than when we played today (post aeration and not cut or rolled).

Great course!

First time playing it and had an unreal time. 100% worth the money and it’s not even that expensive. Course layout was fun, challenging and forgiving all at the same time. Drought has hit all the courses hard this year but the course was still in good conditions.

Staff was very friendly at the pro shop and bar. Good vibes from them, made it feel like a community. Course rangers are all old retired guys, they can be short with players but hey that’s old retired guys for you.

Would highly recommend anyone to play this course. It’s worth the drive from South Boston and the fees.

Very Nice Layout

Very nice course, greens & course in top shape, considering heat wave.

Disappointed!

We played on a Wed early afternoon - it was jammed packed. The holes are very close together and balls were flying into our fairways consistently. The pace of play was horrible - it took us almost 5 hrs for 18 holes. It has been dry but we expected the course to be in better condition. And to top it off, when we went to get a beer and a bite to eat, we were told that we needed to vacate the table by 6pm because a league would be coming in.

Value is tremendous

Course conditions, when factoring in lack of rain and surge in new golfers is just amazing...greens fast...fairways in great shape...staff on point...just one of the better courses one will find...play here again for sure...Do wish the PRO shop at check in and the starter would remind folks to FIX YOUR DIVOTS...particularly since the newbies seem to not know they can use 2-3 tees if need be to fix the divot...

A gem,

Played Gold tees here for the first time in 8 years. Course is in great shape so much better than many other courses in the area. Green are very fast. Don’t be above the hole or you will run 8 feet by on a miss Looking for a challenge this is the place.

Good day all around

Just a great course, still working on it as we played...just need ALL N.E. Courses to get some beneficial rain...all of them are showing stress on the fairways...

This course will soon turn absolutely beautiful on the back 9 with the Fall Foliage and vistas...

Greens quirky but readable...need to know your club strength and weakness'...
