Not finished, but it should be great
Pros: The course is not finished, a little less than half of it is in, but it is already a challenging and unique addition to the Highbridge complex. It is long and tightly wooded, with hilly fairways cut through thick brushy woods. There is awesome risk-reward on this course, with fair lanes but harsh punishment that makes you really think about how far you think you can get down the wooded tunnel without going off into the rough. If you do miss the fairway, it will almost certainly cost you at least a stroke.
Many of the holes have multiple lines carved through the woods that each offer their own challenges and different levels of risk and reward. This is a fantastic design feature you don't see too often, and makes it so you want to throw multiple drives to try out each of the possible shots. The elevation and trees are used well to create a good amount of variety so none of the holes that are currently in feel at all the same.
There are the standard Highbridge concrete tees on this course, and the usual basic hole signs with hole number, basic hole map, and distance. The orange baskets are pretty new and catch great.
Cons: The course isn't finished, and that's the biggest thing holding my rating down. A finished course with the same level of challenge and variety could easily be a 4+ course, I can't wait until it's finished and I can get back up here. As it is, you only get to play 7 holes then you're routed with a long walk onto the last 11 holes of Woodland which takes away from the flow of the round a little. There are stumps and brush still in many of the fairways, adding to the unfinished feeling of the course.
Other Thoughts: This is going to be an awesome course when it's finished, and already adds a unique flavor to the overall Highbridge experience. Right now it's definitely worth playing while you're at Highbridge, and my rating will certainly go way up when the rest of the course is done assuming the final 18 holes have the same challenge and variety of the current 7 holes. Beginners will hate this course, with long tough shots and unforgiving rough. Experienced players will be faced with a lot of thinking and some tough shots, and will definitely be tested here.
