Highlands Reserve Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1998

Highlands Reserve Golf Club nestles in rolling hills that were once dominated by citrus groves. Located in an attractively undulating and quiet environment, the layout combines tree-lined holes and others with a more open linksy character.

Both nines start with holes that work their way through stands of pine trees before heading out into distinctly open links-like terrain. A liberal scattering of orange trees break up the innate openness of the terrain. Rolling undulations provide some nicely elevated tee-boxes, with views out across the central Florida woodlands. Holes like the par-3 4th provide wonderfully scenic vistas.

Good bunkering, large sandy waste areas and large, undulating greens are the hallmarks of this enjoyable, and generally forgiving layout. Housing flanks some stretches of the perimeter but never too intrusively.

The only water you'll encounter is alongside the tees at the par-4 10th, where a small pond only threatens if you hit your drive sideways. Beware the green at the short, doglegging par-4 16th (Hourglass); it measures over 50 yards from front to back and has a very pronounced "valley" separating the back and front sections of the putting surface.
