TRURO – There is golf, and then there is golf at Highland Links – a golf course inside of a national park located along the Truro bluffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Highland Links is part of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
And while the ocean views are as amazing as one would expect, it’s the other parts of the landscape that really stand out on this windy course. First, there is the Highland Lighthouse as part of the view on several of the nine holes.
And then there is the Jenny Lind Castle and the radar dome at the former North Truro Air Station, also prominently visible from several holes.
Highland Links, founded in 1892, is Cape Cod’s oldest golf course. With only nine holes, each hole had different tee-off points so one can play the blue tees one round and the white tees on the next.
It was the most interesting course that the editorial staff of Cape Cod Wave has ever played. But if you have ever met such staff, you know that it does not know very much about anything. But we know what we don’t know.
So Cape Cod Wave hired a professional golf model/tournament winner from Charlotte, North Carolina, to play the course and evaluate it while we took photos and then swung twice as many times as this actual golfer.
“The course was a great links course,” said this golfer, who is so good and successful as a 3D-print/engineer that he golfs almost every day of the year. (If you need something custom-made, Cape Cod Wave highly recommends CAD Design Help.)
“The course was well laid out … and it was in good shape considering the challenges of being directly on the ocean,” said our unnamed golf pro, who both dresses and golfs twice as good as the editorial staff of Cape Cod Wave.
