Postcard From Highland Links

Highland Links SignOn the remote high bluffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in North Truro, Massachusetts is a lovely old links style course dating back to 1892 called Highland Links. It has none of the panache of it’s more fabled cousins in Massachusetts yet it is a quirky place of pure golf fascination for those who appreciate links golf. At Highland Links you are in for a walk through sand dunes covered in tight underbrush and Scottish broom, sweeping hills meandering through rugged terrain, and perches with beach and ocean views that will bedazzle you.
