With a little TLC, Highlands Links could be a permanent feature in the World Top 100 for sure. The condition at this government run course is at times scruffy, especially bunkers but this is more than made up for by the amazing value for money and $ for $ this is probably the best value course in the whole of North America. The layout is stunning and one of the most varied and intriguing I’ve played, with great changes in elevation and fairways that roll up and down magnificently. With no two holes the same, this is gripping stuff and quite rightly ranked so highly but, as I said earlier, it could be even better.
