At my course we have narrow fairways, with thick lush 3 inch ruff, the club tends to stop in this stuff on the downswing, even the wedges have a hard time some of the time as the ball will nestle in the grass.

Just open the face a little so it cuts through it better. Watch:
Hit From Light Rough: http://ignitiongolf.com/light-rough
One of my playing partners hits the ball incredibly high & spins the ball too much. How is backspin controlled so that it doesn’t back up 6 ft.away from the hole? Would a harder ball help or is it just from his swing? His swing speed is pro level. Is club head speed also a factor in creating spin as mine is very slow. I’m already using the softest ball on the market so that shouldn’t be a factor.I’m also having an issue with club head release that’s causing me to pull the ball. Is this a timing issue for when the release happens or something else? I know for certain it’s not an alignment issue. Thanks.
It is not controlled. That was one of the points of the tip. A harder ball will not spin back as much but the problem is easily solved by doing a few practice swings dirtying the grooves.
Yes, cluhead speed may be a factor as well. You need to swing fast enough to get the ball spinning enough. Slow speeds will make it check but not suck back.
If you are pulling it you are hitting with your arms. I have a bunch of tips on this here:

I am a new member and just retired a few months ago and now have time to work on my game. So far, I am finding your easy swing approach to be very helpful. The biggest problem with my game has always been hitting crisp and consistent irons. Based on what I’ve learned so far from your teachings, it appears that I may creating too much tension in my arms during the downswing. Any thoughts? Thanks.
Thank you for joining. Glad you have you on board.
You certainly are hitting with your arms. In doing so the forearm muscles contract pulling the club off the ground, adding loft, twisting the face and a host of other things.
You should with these lessons and work on them in order: http://ignitiongolf.com/start-here
These are the lessons I teach actual students. Follow them precisely and in the order they are in. Build a great swing. At the same time or in the future you need to completely turn your arms off. This means you are not hitting or helping the shot in any way with your arms. I have done a ton of tips on this. Just go the red navigation bar on the original site or gray bar in the Dashboard and type in powerless arms and every tip I have done on this topic will show up. I would start with these:
