“Just to say a massive thank you for the wonderful villa we stayed in at Highlands Reserve, I think this is the fourth villa we have booked through you, and once again it was excellent, very clean and in a great location.” Mr Drummond (Hampshire)

Highlands Reserve Golf Course

Highlands Reserve is just one of many golfing communities in Orlando. Renowned for its par 72 championship course, Highlands Reserve is great for golfers of any skill level to play. It offers lots of challenges to improve your game, with open fairways, water hazards and bunkers throughout. Championship golfer Mike Dasher designed the course incorporating pine tree-lined fairways reminiscent of the Carolinas, and spacious fairways that are similar to those of classic Scottish courses.

Highlands Reserve also has a professional golf shop which is open daily, a putting green and a practice range. Inside the shop, you’ll be able to arrange a round of golf, along with clubs and buggy hire - for two people this will approximately cost $100. Full details and costs of playing can also be found on the Highands Reserve website. It is a good idea to book your rounds up early here, because this course is very popular with tourists and local residents.
