Schedule Your Tee Time
Stepping on the tee box at the 1st Hole offers a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance. This par-4 is played slightly uphill with the slope guiding your ball into the right side of the green. Landing your tee-shot on the left side of the fairway will take the front right bunker out of play during your upcoming approach shots.
The third par-4 in a row offers the first dogleg right on the course. You must play your tee shot left, giving you the best opportunity to play your approach shot onto the green. Keep in mind the green slopes left to right so make sure you play your approach shot carefully.
The first par-5 on the course offers a beautiful cut fairway heavily treed on both sides of the fairway. Tee shots on the left side of the fairway open up approach shots into the green. Keep in mind the slight dogleg right. The narrow putting green has bunkers located on the left, and right sides of the green guarding the front of the green.
This straight away par-3 can be very tricky so make sure you choose the correct club. Surrounded by beautiful trees, judge the wind correctly or you could end up very short of the green.
The most scenic par 4 on the course requires players to layup their tee shot to avoid a pond. Players can expect to use a mid-to-short iron for their approach shot onto the green. Avoid the front left bunker and pond all together by putting your tee shot on the right edge of the fairway. Make sure your shot into the green is played accurately to avoid the harsh back to front slope, with the top part of the green also slopping to the left.
The second par-5 on the front nine is straightaway and goes uphill for the last 275 yards. Make sure you play your shots in the fairway, avoiding the tree lined rough.
The hardest hole on the course requires a must hit fairway off the tee. The second shot requires most players to test their long iron ability. The final test is the approach shot, landing it softly on the green to avoid the noticeable slope to the left.
The final hole on the front nine offers a tricky par-3 with a two tiered green. For the best results hitting a very accurate approach shot from the tee onto the correct tier. Hitting a long shot makes for a very tough up and down.
The first hole of the back nine presents a challenging dog leg left. Playing your tee-shot to the right takes the trees out of play on the left. With a slight uphill shot to the green, accurate yardage is required for your approach shot.
This shorter par-4 is tricky off the tee with the dog left right. Club selection is crucial, with the goal to place your tee shot on the left side of the fairway enough to see the flag. The bunker on the front left of the green requires accuracy with your approach shot. With a very flat green and a couple good shots this hole can give you a quick birdie to start the back nine.
The shortest par 4 at Highland Hills has out of bounds markers along the left side, really testing the golfer’s accuracy off the tee. A large bunker guarding the front of this small sloped green, requires all approach shots to be taken with supreme accuracy.
This par-4 has a sharp dogleg to the right. Longer hitters can take the chance to hit their tee shot over the treed corner and will cut the distance in yards for approach shots to green. A straightaway tee shot leaves a long iron or utility wood for a second shot to a small green.
This fun but very demanding par-3 plays 215 yards from the tips and drops to 105 yards for the front tees. The green is protected by a large front right bunker with large trees to the left. This hole has a strong emphasis on a straighter tee shot for a birdie opportunity.
The only par-5 on the back 9 plays over a lake on tee shots from the back tees. With trees on both sides of this hole and the two bunkers in front of the green, accurate yardage to the putting green is important for approach shots.
This demanding slight dogleg right par-4 is one of the more challenging holes at Highland Hills. The hole is lined with trees, a front left bunker and a lake on the right of putting green that can come into play with a wayward approach shot to the green.
The final hole is a par-4 with a sharp dogleg to the right. With a layup tee shot to the corner leaving a long-to-mid iron approach. There are two bunkers that can come into play if the tee shot goes straightaway through the fairway and there are bunkers on front right and left of the green. A great finishing hole to a great golf course!
