    If you have played Highland Creek in the past couple of years, then you probable still have a bitter memory of your last experience. Course conditions were poor from tee to green, with exception of the fairways, and the cost of play exceeded the conditions. Bunkers were left to wastelands and the cart path was equivalent to an off-road adventure in a 4×4. It is only through sheer boredom and decent weather that I decided to stop by for a round and see how things had been since my last round which was in the spring of 2013. To say that I was shocked would be a slight stretch of truth, however I would be fully willing to admit to being pleasant surprised. I would honestly say that the upgraded course conditions were obvious from the very first tee. Nice, fluffy sand in bunkers that were edged and visibly well maintained. Greens were surprisingly firm and quick, given the recent precipitation and time of year. Tee boxes had defined borders and much flatter hitting surface than in my personal recent memory. Cart path had also received some fresh concrete and offers a pleasant ride. If there is one course that I believe deserves a second chance this coming season, I would say that Highland Creek is it. It is an undeniably excellent track that challenges a wide skill set, and with the return of conditions that made it stand out as one of the best public courses in charlotte for years, I personally think it is taking the initial steps needed to reclaim its right to be called one of the best public courses in Charlotte.
