Arthur Hills Course Review

The Arthur Hills Course at The Highlands is a gorgeous championship design that offers expansive waste bunkers and challenging water hazards along a beautiful rolling terrain, with ample landing zones off the tee and recovery areas greenside. The setting is one of the most serene of all the BOYNE Golf courses, with marsh and wooded areas providing homes for abundant native wildlife. The sprawling waste areas and intricately designed traps that highlight the green complexes provide the need for careful shot placement. Water comes into play on four holes and 57 sand bunkers are situated along the course.

The Arthur Hills Course has many memorable holes, including the par four 17th and par five 18th. The former alternates its tee boxes from both sides of a large lake with a split fairway servicing each side, and number 18 doglegs left with the fairway narrowing on the tight approach to a challenging green complex. These are two of the most challenging holes of the layout, creating an exciting finish. For more info, visit our page for the Arthur Hills Course with direct link to their website by clicking here.
