Without a doubt Highlands Links has to top the list of toughest golf courses I played this Summer. It was on my golf bucket list and it was definitely nice to finally play the course in July. For all its beauty Highlands Links is one tough golf course though. I played it from the white tees which stretches to 6161 yds. with a rating of 70.9 and a slope of 135. Pretty high numbers from the white tees so I knew I was in for a tough day.
Highlands greens I didn't find all that difficult it was the uneven lies that I got on pretty much every shot. Uphill and side-hill lies ate me up and added many strokes to my round. Out of the rough those lies were even more amplified. As a 20 handicap golfer who struggled during his first round at Highlands I found the course to be more than tough. I'm glad I got the chance to play Highlands Links I just hope I get a chance to play it again when my "A" game is on.
What have your experiences been at Highlands Links?
