“Great Cape Cod Golf Experience”
Reviewed August 9, 2010

I played here several times this summer and plan to return. This is golf the way it once was. Highland Links, established in the 1890's, is golf at its Scottish roots. The fairways are narrow and undulating; the rough is deep and plentiful; the views are to die for. Honestly, I am a pretty good golfer and this course challenged me on almost every hole. After the third hole I left the driver in the bag and played 3 wood and irons. This is a course for smart ball strikers, not big hitters. The course is in great shape. There isn't much of a pro shop, but there are cold soft drinks available. an amazing course, different from anything you likely played before.

When I first started playing at Highland a kindly old man said to me "If you can be good here, you can be good anywhere." I belive him, in his prime he had a 4 handicap. I live close to highland and play there alot. Its a 9 hole course run by the National Seashore on Cape Cod and concidering the sandy soil conditions in this area the course is wonderfully maintained. Nature surrounds you on every hole and there is one area( bench on hole 6) you can see the ocean and Cape Cod Bay from the same spot, and thats pretty rare on Cape Cod. Biggest challenges seem to be kinda narrow fairways, hardcore roughs and shifty winds. I recommend bringing bug spray and wearing pants when playing here, Cape Cod has a Tick problem and you can pick one up while looking for your ball off the fairway. you should also educate yourself on proper tick prevention and removal prior to most outdoor activitys on the Cape. Services are fine, they have what you need in the shop, but this is not a big fancy club house. You should ask questions over the phone when you make a tee time, if their is something special your looking "fore"
