About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6754
Slope 129
Rating 72.8
Type Public
Heatherwoode Golf Club in Springboro boasts some of the most well manicured greens and fairways in southern Ohio. This challenging course, which is the former host of the Nike Tour's Miami Valley Open, is one of Ohio's top 20 golf courses. Denis Griffiths designed the layout. He made the most of the lush, gently rolling landscape and its natural hazards. There is water on over half of the holes in the form of vast lakes and meandering streams. There are also strategically positioned trees looming beside the fairways and greens. The three sets of tees are are diverse enough to accommodate a wide range of skill levels. It is a popular place for tournaments and outings. Heatherwoode G.C. is conveniently located just a short drive from Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati.

Great City Course

I play Heatherwoode a couple times a month, and would play it even more if I lived closer. The course is always in great shape, the greens roll true and the fairway’s and rough are very consistent. I enjoy the variety of the holes, requiring everything from a 4 iron to Driver off the tee on the par 4s. Water comes into play on most holes requiring you to think your way around the course. The staff is always friendly and they do a great job of spacing out tee times and their on course rangers ensure groups are maintaining the spot on the course. Overall my favorite public course in the Dayton area.

Professionally maintained ... maybe the finest in southwestern Ohio. Sneaky long ... especially the par 4's ... and makes for some challenging golf.

Great course but slow

Playing early in the morning I didn't think play would be so slow but over 4.5 hours is tough when everyone has a cart. I love the course though.

In Great Shape

We've played this course once a year for a number of years and it was in the best shape we've ever seen. All facets of course in great shape and they've added amenities to practice range (chairs, umbrellas, music) to make it a first class warm-up. If you're looking to play around the Dayton area play it! The cigar room is a nice touch too!

Beautiful course despite rain

Had some random rain showers during the round but the course was beautiful and challenging. Got a hot deal through golf now which made the price a great deal compared to the other tee times. The staff was friendly and the ranger kept us updated on pace of play.

Played for Cheap, Would Pay More to Play Here Again

Played for cheap through golf now, but this beauty of a course was more worth the $60 to play than most courses I've played locally. I would pay the higher price in a heart beat. The staff was friendly. The course was older but in beautiful shape. Plenty of challenges. Didn't play my best round on the difficult back 9, but the amount of fun I had hear will more than definitely bring me back for more. Thanks Heatherwoode!

Rangers did a great job!

First nine was slow as we were behind a threesome that was brutally slow. I called the clubhouse on #17 (we started on #10) to make them aware of the situation and a ranger came out immediately to correct the situation. The ranger also let us skip #1 to get around the slow players and we completed #1 at the end of the round. Nice save by the rangers - w/o their help it would have been a 5 hour round! The staff certainly knows how to run a golf course!

Great shape.

This course is in great shape. Pace of play was slow, had to wait on every hole. Don't like that they had the women tee off in the fairway.

Golf in February? Who would have guessed.

Heatherwood was in great shape for this time of year. It will be another month (April) before they get into full action with a starter and snack shop. In the mean time, this is a great course with fast greens and dog-legs that will require you to hit the ball with a fade or draw on some tee shots. There are plenty of water hazards, traps and trees that will challenge your skills. Watch out for the stream on hole #5. You must decide whether to lay up short or go for the gusto by hitting a 230+ yard tee shot.

Great course, a top public course

A great course, in excellent shape. Very interesting layout, gives you something new with each hole. I played with a very cheap online tee time. Also, I notice a lot of complaints about pace, but I played on a 43 degree day, so there were only 3 people on the whole course! Anyway, I heartily recommend this course, and I will play again next time I'm in the area.
