There are two championship golf courses available at Highland Ridge, an upscale residential community that is one of central Florida's most popular golfing destinations. Both courses enjoy a beautiful tropical setting situated next to a nature conservancy and a 260-acre freshwater lake. Highlands Ridge's North Course is known for its excellent conditions and the more challenging South Course is one of the heartland's toughest layouts. The South was even voted the area's best golf course in 2012. The layout utilizes the diverse tropical terrain to create a true shot maker's layout featuring holes that range from short to long and wide-open, to narrow. The design seamlessly blends links-style bunkering into the lush landscape of meandering creeks and sparkling ponds, which come into play throughout. There are also 100-year-old oaks that line the fairways.
