One of the very best firm and fast courses that we have available. The greens are reasonable and the pins are located far enough back on the green to have a chance to get close, but the course is hard as a rock. It's links golf as it should be, but still very playable, and always a fun round.
The highlands update improves the one thing that the course was lacking, which is visuals. The better grasses and better textures now give this course a proper authentic look to go along with how well it plays.
I really have nothing else to add to that. It looks good, it plays great, and it's links golf... go play it!
I played the 2016 version. Very beautiful course with great visuals. I really like how the greens pop off of the brownish fairways. Tough greens to hit (playing no aids). Very challenging round that requires the ability to play run-up shots that land either short, or just on the green. Some tough driving holes as well.
