Having been a member there since 2000, I am appalled with the condition that Highland has deteriorated into. Outside of the greens, which are now mediocre at best, this course is deplorable.
Let''s go through the factors;
Amenities: NO driving range, only a putting green. Weak clubhouse with a modest kitchen. Broken down carts.
Difficulty: slope of 123/124... narrow fairways and lotsa hilly lies.
Maintenence: the new owner has put NOTHING into the course; fairways and rough are poorly maintained, with a tremendous amount of dead and dying grass. Bunkers have NO sand, only packed mud. Tee boxes have weeds and debris.
Scenery: Pittsburgh skyline is seen from the 8th fairway. Otherwise; there is nothing to look at, except the neglected golfcourse.
Value: go anywhere else, this place is the pits.
Overall: An absolute disgrace. DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$. No one at Highland cares anymore about the golf experience.
Update: (as of 10/1/2011): IT HAS, MERCIFULLY, CLOSED!
