Designed in 2006 by Donald Steel, the course was carved from the natural landscape of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains leaving stunning views along its ridge tops. A course with forgiving landing areas, Steel’s British roots transfer to the Highland Course with links-style features implemented throughout one of the best mountain layouts in golf.
