tee times too close & terrible sand traps

tee times are scheduled too close to one another --- have to wait on most every shot. Greens are in great shape and fairways are OK for this time of year. the
sand traps are TERRIBLE -- some it's like hitting off concrete!!
Arrived 30 min ahead of tee time to hit balls --- no carts available , --- but we were taken to driving range and 25 min later did come with our cart

Fun 18

Nice course.

Most holes have corners so you need to pay attention to how far you are hitting from the tee.

And the water hazards are hazardous. You will see gators.

Good layout. Greens are good, firm and fast.
Fairways were dry and (in some instances) damaged. Expected better condition, for the money. Would I recommend this course? Maybe.

A little disapointing

Longest 18 hole played. No control on take offs and had 2 golfers that slowed us up for 16 holes . Not even polite enough to let us through. Did not finish our 18 , lost patience seeing them look for thier balls !

Soft greens

Rained last night and the greens were in great shape. All in all, for February the course was in very good condition. I would recommend it to anyone visiting HHI.

Not my best golf experience

We had a disappointing round of golf here. From the dirt caked range balls to the hard, sand-less bunkers, this was not a great golf experience.
On the positive side, it was cart path only because of recent rain, and it really wasn't much of an issue because the fairways are relatively narrow. Pace of play was really good - we finished in 4 hours - it was Super Bowl Sunday, which I think impacted the golfers on the course that afternoon. I also liked the greens - fast and pretty true. Our back nine was on the Clipper, and those greens seemed bumpy (but still not too bad).
The fairways were pretty dormant - much more brown than green and it is not a lush course. Even on the fairways, there seemed to be little grass to hit off. Perhaps it's in better shape later in the year, but I will spend my golf dollars elsewhere.

Fun round

Greens excellent; fairways and tees what you would expect for winter conditions. Interesting layout with good variety. Would play again for sure.

Great value for the money

The course is in great shape especially for the end of January. Greens held most shots and putted very true. Only real issue I encountered was some of the traps were a little thin with sand. I've never been disappointed playing any course owned by the Heritage Golf Collection group. Getting a hot deal on golfnow is icing on the cake. Just watch out for the Gators. They like to guard the lateral hazards!

Pace of play.

I play this course quite often and the pace of play could be improved. It’s usually slow, but worse today. 5 hour round and never saw a marshall all day.
