It is a typical hilly mountain course where you should rent a cart as we did. The course has nice enough scenery but hard clay grounds.
What was really disappointing was the condition of the course.
Tee box - the grass was like tall rough.
Fairway - there were lots of patches where I was scared to injure myself by hitting down on the ground.
Green - ridiculously slow and rough.
Quite simply the worst maintained course I have seen in a number of years.
Beautiful course and has the potential to be even better
A wonderful course with a great view from the 12th tee. A bit of
a walk in places and I would recomend booking a buggy for the
less than fit. Fairways were lush, the greens were quick and
tricky and the hole placements were an act of cruelty. A test for
good and fair golfers alike. The only down side was that the 9th
hole was in the middle of the course and the toilet was a
ranshackle affair on the 12th tee with only one cubicle and much
to the annoyance of my wife, a compete selection of peep holes in
the walls. The pro shop has great staff and the roast lunch at
the club had large serves and very reasonably priced. All in all,
a great place to play golf especially early on Sunday
Almost always in Top Condition.Not easy putting. All fairways
& Greens seem to slope downhill towards the road. Not easy
walking for the older golfer.
Situated on the side of a gentle slope, the course is a little
boring. Many of the holes are the same. There are a couple of
lakes, one of which is on the last. A short par 3 over water.
The Highlands is a little gem of a course and with the new
clubhouse and proposed alterations to the course it will become a
must play destination.
The greens are relatively small and all slope toward the main
road. The putting surfaces are very true and deceptively quick
and require a lot of thought in your approach to them.
In dry conditions you will need to consider wether to loft your
approach or hit a low pitch and run as several greens have subtle
but very quick slopes.
There are some very picturesque holes with views towards the East
and South to Mittagong.
Definetely worth the 30 minute drive from Campbelltown.
This is a testing course that requires good ball placement off
the tee and careful treatment around the greens - they are small,
hard and quick.
The short par 3 18th is over water from an elevated green, and is
an interesting way to finish a round.
As you don't get back to the clubhouse until the 18th, make
sure you take everything you need with you. There's a
half-way house but I'm guessing it is only open on the
this is an extremely well kept course the greens are immaculate
and fairways are blemmish free.
the only draw backs of this course are the lack of realy trying
holes the 6th is great fun known by locals as baumonts folly a
par 4 left dog leg across a dam surrounded by dense bush and the
18th wich plays more mind than skill accross a water course main
road to left & green backed by the club house.
a rewarding day out but there are some repetativeness in the
front 4's & 5's
Knowing the course for quite a few years it is getting better as
the years pass bye, the fairways are imaculate but the rough
needs to be improoved to a large extent. The seventh hole mainly
only suits the A grade players as it is too easy to make a mess
of your game. As for the greens they suit A-B and C grades
because they are in great shape. The way the greenkeeper is going
in anouther few years the Highlands golf club will have more
members than the other golf clubs in the Southern Highlands.
I recently played again at Highlands Golf Club at Mittagong and
can't believe how well this course holds up in the wet.On the
last two occasions I have played here it's been raining and I
always find the fairways and greens in top condition. This course
will gain alot of respect in the near future due to the ongoing
upgrading of the course and clubhouse.The greens are quite
quick,ball placement off the tee is quite important on the 6th
and 7th, some holes are a challenge whilst some holes like the
18th are pleasurable.
