Nice Course
May 2021
Had a great time playing this course even though I had never played a links course. It was certainly a nice course on the water but tough if you got off the fairway and into the weeds. The staff was friendly and helpful. Give this place a try!

Friendly staff
Aug 2020 • Solo
Very friendly staff , Jason in the pro shop was awesome. Not sure what other people are talking about . I’ve Ben playing golf for 45 yrs and their staff was very professional and welcoming.
Course is cool , links style and you have to play it that way . A true gem on the edge of Nat sea shore . I never walk but when I play here I put 1/2 my clubs in a Sunday bag so I can really enjoy the views . Leave driver at home ! It’s way more important to be in the fairways .
Thanks again guys , will see ya next year

Fun course w great views
Jul 2019 • Couples
We played Highland Links and enjoyed the 9 hole course. It's right beside the ocean so the breeze is there. Our round the way the wind blew only effected 2 or 3 holes which was fun.

Bucket list checked
Oct 2018 • Couples
This golf course has been on my bucket list for a while. I’ve googled it, tried to plan trips to it, and even got as far as walking a few of the holes in January of 2015.
I played it October 16,2018. Let me say it was well worth the wait and was everything I thought it would be and more. Stunning views of the ocean, dramatic elevation changes on a few holes, tight and challenging. My wife and I walked the nine hole course and I have to say one of the most enjoyable rounds this year. The course is worth the price of admission and I would recommend walking if you can to get the full experience. I even was fortunate enough to finish with the ball I started with.

Crazy hard but fun
Oct 2018 • Couples
Played this on a spectacular fall day. This is not a m as manicured country club. Fescue everywhere, pins up hills, around corners, and the wind off the ocean makes it challenging. Bring extra balls. You will lose some. The views are spectacular, greens were in good shape and 4 sets of tee boxes. Very reasonable at $45 a person with cart, and the people were friendly. Bring your phone or camera, there are dozens of photo opportunities. Course will take you longer than you might think.

Beautiful little course on The National Seashore
Jul 2018 • Couples
Hadn’t golfed in years, but was able to play this course with my husband last week. We had an early morning tee time before it got too busy.
Beautiful links-style course overlooking the ocean. The links are less forgiving than you might think, with plenty of tall grass to devour errant drives off the tea, but a very playable course. Can’t wait to go again!

Nasty Ranger!
Jul 2018 • Friends
We were vacationing at a friend’s family Summer home in Truro 4th of July week whereby people came up from other states as a sort of reunion. We had 5 people golfing and had tee times. We’re told we would play 3 and 2 but the starter said to all play together since we were going to play best ball and had 3 sets of clubs between us - one of which was rented from the pro shop. We are all avid golfers, just not everyone thought to pack their clubs. Happens right? We know this is not “normal” or optimal. The ranger started following us and at one point said “they” would have never let us play without us all having our own clubs - even though we never held anyone up (didn’t even see people at the prior tee boxes) and were following the place of play. We know about etiquette and are avid golfers! We played best ball all the way through on some holes - not just the drives. I said we were on vacation and we’re keeping the pace - he said it’s wasn’t the point. Very abrupt and pissed off. I get it, but give me a break. Even when we were done, he refused to even say “thank you, come again, have a great 4th”, nothing. Never again - he should not be dealing with the public. We had a tee time, were keeping the pace and following the normal rules. Miserable. Take my money though, right? Not cool. Go somewhere else. He’s a mean one. The family has been going there for years too....disappointing.

If you really like golf, you've got to give it a go
Oct 2017 • Friends
It's not a golf resort, it's not a plush private course, and it is a bit of a funky design. So how does it get five TA bubbles?

For us, it was greatly reminiscent of a number of golf courses in small Scottish towns. Modest greens fees, funny bounces, lots of run, rough to be avoided at all costs and on a windy day -- wowie!

Your fellow golfers will be of every known skill level and as a result things can slow up a bit, but there are a lot of nice views to look at while you wait. And there are water coolers on the course as well as a "modest facility."

We got a wonderfully cordial greeting in the shop. The gentleman on duty seems to resonate with people who love the game of golf -- whatever their skill level may be. The three of us have handicaps in the 15-17 range and we really enjoy the game.

I personally would not wish to play the course every day but I am very, very happy to have played it once -- and would certainly play it again.

Terrible people running it
Oct 2017 • Family
The course looked amazing, it was a shame the staff was among the most rude and unfriendly people I have come across. At the cape for a family vacation and had booked a tee time with my father. He needed to rent clubs and I went into the pro shop with my golf bag and was promptly screamed at that bags were not allowed in the shop. I get they have unique rules here but my home course lets me take my clubs anywhere and it wasn't necessary to yell at me and call me names.

Great views bad golf
Sep 2016 • Couples
My wife and I are retired less than average golfers. We loved the experience of this truly unique links style course. We hope to play again next year. Two points of caution, it's expensive, and we spent so much time sightseeing that we forgot how to hit the ball.
