Heatherwood is a challenge

The pro was great, the staff very friendly and helpful, the food looked great. Greens great, teeboxes great, fairways great. Sand traps left natural. Layout best for a cart. Course is narrow with natural rough guarding most fairways and greens. Enjoyed it all.

Nice round of golf at Heatherwood Hills. The fairways were in good shape and the greens were outstanding, especially with how hot it’s been lately. Pace of play was ok, you still have people out there who have a problem letting a single player through, even though they’re in groups of 4 or 5. I paid $15.00 on Golfnow and it’s well worth the hour drive.

First time.

This course turned out to be really nice but in a sneaky way. It’s a lot of up and down and it feels like you’re constantly plying from a down hill lie. The distance markers can be very deceiving. Several tee shots I thought I could drive ended up in the woods. They were a few burnt grass spots but nothing major. Overall I thought it was a really good course to play for a casual Friday morning round.

Great Course and Staff

I love the course, even though it can be difficult from the back tees. The fairways are in good shape and the greens are excellent. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. Will continue to play.

The course was in good shape. There were some holes where they let the bunkers go but the greens were in excellent condition. Fun course that I will play again.

Affordable course

It was cheap and the pace of play was good. Course was not in very good shape and bunkers were terrible. Tee boxes were in bad shape as were some of the greens. Course layout was good.

Weekday bargain

Know what to expect. Keep it in the fairway or you won’t keep it. Greens in good condition, fairways ok. Traps need lots of work. It’s a roller coaster but a bargain for the Golf Now rate

Tight Fairways and Uneven Lies!!

Heatherwood is in really good shape. The greens are really nice and very well taken care of. The fairways are very very tight. Deep woods usually flanking the holes.. The elevation changes are sever and make the holes challenging.
The staff is very nice, very professional.
They also have very reasonable priced membership options.
You’ve read it in other reviews: Bring lots of balls!! I lost almost a dozen out there today.
I like to walk and that is not an option on this layout. But wanted to take advantage of the Golf Now deal. Really glad I did. But Heatherwood kicked my butt! Happy trails!

Good Condition - Tight Layout

Great value for the money on the hot deal. Course was in good shape and greens were in great condition just a little slow due to rain that morning. It’s a very challenging course with tight fairways and lots of uphill elevations, but once again for the money you can’t beat it. Would definitely play the hot deal again, just be prepared to hit straight.

Tight Short hilly

First time playing on quick notice. Worthy of $30 for 18 & cart and for short straight players. Leave the driver at home if you play fades & draws and are long. I can play this course best next time with only a 5 iron or maybe a hybrid if you play with one. Very tight fairways and if you are off then you have lost your ball so no forgiveness! Very scenic but the greens are pretty slow & bunkers are mostly shot right now. Hopefully they are going to repair all soon. Not a par 3 course but a par 4 iron course. You can loose a lot of balls on straight long drives so ball placement off tee is critical. Lots of ditches & ravines.

Good Value

Played this course several times since moving back to Bham. Not alot pf players when I 1st started going, but starting to see more players, which isnt a bad thing. Course should honestly get more traffic than it does. Staff is always super friendly and accommodating. This track is on the shorter side, but a little tight and curvy in the right spots to balance out the difficulty. No huge negatives that would stop me from going, but if I had to offer one area for improvement:

Bunker/Drainage Repair- Unfortunately the bunkers are pretty much washed out, and are often puddled. Same goes for a few of the fairways. Course appears to have issues draining properly. Cant play bunker shots and some landing zones on the fairways are off limits due to standing water.

CONSTRUCTIVE criticism truly. You shouldnt have reservations about playing this track. Muni prices on this part of town is unheard of.

This course is tight

Absolutely gorgeous. A well thought out track that winds through the Heatherwood housing development.
Rolling hills and bunkers make this a target golf course. No forgiveness off the fairway, many falloffs making lost balls common.
The greens are perfect and a handy short game needed to make your putts easier.
A confluence of skills are needs to negotiate this layout. Narrow shutes make the tee shot a bit scary.
I will play here every time I can. A great tour with great opportunity and disappointment.

Great Course

Absolutely great course. I play it a few times a week and it’s always amazing. Recently the fairways were cut short in some spots. Also some players do not abide by standard pace of play rules by letting smaller faster groups play through and there is no course Marshall to enforce this. Other than that it’s amazing course and plays very well. Absolutely love it

who knew?

who knew that they can design a course where every hole requires you to hit uphill? oh yes, except for #1 when halfway thru the hole you hit across a 100 yard ravine. and # ?? when you hit downhill to the left on a narrow fairway with a roll downhill of at least 100 yares. Or, you miss and your ball goes into never-neverland ravine.

Most interesting. One of my worst scores this year, but fun.

Worst Bunkers EVER!

I paid the full nine hole rate for my daughter and myself (with small range bag, $59). After checking in, we went to the range and probably hit three or four balls each when the sprinklers came on!! The clubhouse employee came out and apologized, said, “Oh I thought you had enough time before those came on.” No offer to turn them off, no offer for discount, even refund of range balls, just “Well, I guess y’all can go roll a few putts.”

So we rolled a few putts. Then we teed off. Fortunately we stayed out of bunkers - the WORST I’ve ever seen. Practically no sand in there, just dried up mud holes.

The course has some great views and lots of character. From anything but the forward tees, you’d better hit straight - very narrow. Greens rolled very nicely, but many off leave no room for error on the approach shots, short, long, or laterally.

It’s really sad - so much natural beauty, character and potential, but unless they start to maintain it, I don’t know why anyone should want to play it.
