Links golf

This is a pure links seaside old fashioned course.’
Hard fast fairways with thin grass if any. Small slow greens.
Ocean vistas from every hole. A once a year delight .

Great views - terrible greens

You play Highland Links for the views, not the golf.

However, the greens were BUMPY and fuzzy. Putting is terrible. Greenskeeper is clueless.

Not worth the money. Pace is awful - low level vacation golfers who can't find their ball.

The Cape has many better courses. I won't be returning to Highland Links in the foreseeable future.

It’s been a long time between visits

The last time my wife and I paid by putting $10 ? In a box. Disappointed that the lighthouse was all wrapped up and under repair when I just visited with my grown son. It was still a fun afternoon above the ocean.

Highland Links

Course was busy, but wait time wasn’t too bad. Mosquitoes were the biggest challenge all afternoon. Beautiful seascapes were great. A bit windy at times, but reduced the mosquitoes! I’d play it again if in the area.

Rangers

The Ranger really threw off my sons game. He said we were playing too slow. There was no one behind us . he told me to look at the clock I was five minutes off. You lose a lot of balls so you spend a little time looking for them. But we were not holding up play. He was a nasty man

Love this course!

Love this course.
Played her many years ago and our trip back was just wonderful.
It started with the very stylish starter that gave us a history and description of the course.
9Holes but easily played 18 using different tees. It’s a must if you are lucky enough to be in the area.

Hidden gem on the Cape

Fun, little course with outstanding views. Great value for $35/round, especially given it’s legitimate links set up. Can get slow at times, given the wide range of players that come for a round. But definitely worth it if you are looking to get in a round of two while on vacation

Overall it was a pretty good experience.

The greens do not measure up to today’s standard of quality

Hard to take a course seriously when putting on a spongy mound. This is for old world duffers. Sand traps are heavy sea sand. Carts are old propane at $10 per head. They run sprinklers while you’re playing. So what!
