Our Story

Since 1993

Turner Highlands Golf Course originally opened in 1993 as a 9-Hole course made up of existing holes # 1-3, 7-9, 11, 17, & 18. The course was built amongst apple orchards and the clubhouse is a converted farm barn – all part of the Leavitt Family. Just a couple years later, work began on an additional nine holes – many being carved out of the woods on the back half of the property. Over time, many of the orchards were converted to house lots and there are now over 30 properties built alongside the course. Thankfully, in most cases, the houses are positioned such that they do not truly interfere with play. 

‘The Highlands’ has been a mainstay in the town of Turner for almost 30 years and has hosted countless weddings, retirement parties, tournaments, and community events. As golf is becoming enjoyed by more and more people everyday, THGC is sure to be ingrained in the community for years and years to come. 

The Cutter Family

Current owners, Jan and Paul Cutter, have lived in Turner since the early 70s – spending most of that time on the shores of Pleasant Pond. They have raised four boys in town and all love the game of golf. The family has been members of THGC from the beginning. With golf being such a large part of their life, it was truly a dream come true to have the opportunity to purchase The Highlands with their son Alex and his wife, Eliza. 

Since taking over in late 2019, it has been an exciting and interesting ride. Opening two businesses with no true past experience in either during a global pandemic is not exactly how they drew it up! That being said, they have been blessed with a great support system of amazing employees, members, and friends who have been invaluable to the journey so far.
