Unique Features

Grass & Mat Tee Stations

The practice range at the Highlands has 44 hitting stations. The grass areas include both a Bermuda Grass section and a Rye/Blue Grass section. The other hitting areas consist of a variety of artificial mats. The Highlands maintains a diverse selection of hitting surfaces including fine Sam Snead Mats, soft Wittek surfaces and more. This allows customers to choose the one they like best.

Putting Practice Areas

With a Dave Pelz endorsed practice putting green, there's no excuse. The Highlands has a very nice putting green where one can really groove a putting stroke. The quality short game area allows for chipping and pitching practice - from high lob shots to low bump and runs. And, the greenside bunker lets one practice blast shots out of the sand to various target flags.

All Weather Hitting Areas

The driving range at the Highlands has a sheltered hitting area equipped with heaters to warm the tee stations. This is great for use during inclement weather and the cold winter months. You'll feel like you're hitting in an indoor facility yet have the advantage of seeing your total outside ball flight!

Specialty Golf Shots

Specialty golf shots count for almost 80% of a round of golf. So, along with practicing long shots, you may want to work on this aspect of you game. Take advantage of the greenside & fairway bunkers as well as some uneven lie mounds (for uphill, downhill and sidehill lies).
