For the golfer Highlands is a par 72 championship golf course and has a 120 foot elevation overlooking a picturesque conservation area. Highlands offers something for golfers of all abilities. Guests can get a discount off tee prices by being guests on Highlands (just ask at the clubhouse).
Everything you need is very close by. Berry Town Centre is located next door to Highlands with a Publix supermarket, handy for food shopping. There is also a Bamboo Wok Chinese takeaway. We have used this numerous times but always forget that the portions are huge, so take care not to order too much. BTC also boasts fish and chips, a Linksters bar, Mia pizza, and an Indian takeaway. There is also an Applebees restaurant which is thoroughly recommended by us and also a number of guests. It can be busy though as it is loved by the locals as well. You will also find a bank with ATM, a gas station and a UPS store, handy for posting postcards.
2 miles further north up the 27, you will find a 24 hour Walmart store at Cagans Crossing. This is great for a late evening shop. They also have excellent fresh fruit and veg. Just past Walmart there is a Chilis restaurant which has a varied selection of food and a good children’s menu. Here you will also find a Macdonalds, Burger King, Taco Bells, KFC and an Irish pub. You are also within 10-15 mins to various eating places around Champions Gate. Crackerbarrel is just north of the I4 and Manny’s chop house is a bit further south on the 27.
Highlands Reserve is a great location for the parks and a peaceful place for rest and relaxation.
