The Highlands South Course stretches to 6,620 yards from the back tees across undulating terrain, ample waste bunkers and 10 water hazards. This course is reminiscent of a links style course, both in its set-up and the way it plays with fairway bunkers and rolling terrain. Don't let the rather short length fool you as the course features five incredible par-3's that are always a challenge due to the breezes off the nearby Gulf of Mexico.
You'll get off to a moderately easy start with a straightaway par-4 that plays at 335 yards from the back tees and 250 from the forward. You do have to avoid a large bunker on the left and trees on the right. Then there is the great par-3 third hole that measures 180 yards from the back tees and 100 from the front. This hole has a very narrow green that measures about 40 feet at its deepest point. There's plenty of water in front of the green.
Accuracy and distance control is very important here. "If you're short, you'll end up in the water. If you're long, you'll be in the back bunker," says Director of Golf, Jay Overton. The par-3 finishing hole of 180 yards (back tees) is a perfect finale hole featuring an elevated green protected by water and large, deep bunkers.
