Highlands Reserve

The popular championship course of Highlands Reserve, offers a challenge to golfers of all levels and is spread across 150 acres, making it one of the few courses in Central Florida where you can actually walk round. This inspiring course gives you pine tree-lined fairways reminiscent of the Carolinas, open spacious fairways likened to the great Scottish courses, and a slice of old Florida when set within picturesque countryside surrounded by orange groves, oak and pine trees. Our holiday homes are surrounded by landscaped streets and gardens, while many overlook the golf course that winds through the neighbourhood.
