Incredible layout.

This course was so fun to play. Layout was incredible with the elevation changes on the Highlands course. Condition of course was great as well. Enjoyed it way more than the Red Wing course that is in town. Just a great layout.

Beautiful day in the valley

The Lowlands course was fabulous. Great greens, good fairways, a challenging layout. 1 thing, do not try to walk this course, Elevation changes and several long distances between green and tee on both courses would make walking a bad experience. It is disconcerting that the snack bar/restaurant does not open until 10:30am. Only soft drinks are available in the clubhouse until then.

A fun but thirsty round

The interesting and picturesque Highlands course did not disappoint. While I wish they would restore the bunkers that were left to grow over during the time the course was closed, Generally the course was in good shape, the greens were quick and true and in good shape. As were the fairways and near rough. with the drought conditions the "2nd cut" and beyond were quite dry as could be expected. The only thing that made this experience sour for us was the fact that the course does not pass the clubhouse at all and the be last time we had access to the beverage cart was on 4. The cart came past us at 14 but continued past us despite our efforts to flag it down. We were parched by the time we finished.
