Nestled in the hills among rolling citrus groves, burgeoning pine trees, and a nature reserve is the Highlands Reserve Golf Course. The scenic layout of this Mike Dasher designed, par 72 championship course traverses over 120 feet of elevation change. Constructed in 1998, Highlands Reserve boasts large undulating greens that place a premium on shot making. As you make your way through the course you will encounter a combination of pine tree lined fairways reminiscent of North Caroline and open spaces that remind player o the land where golf was created.
