About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6898
Slope 129
Rating 73.5
Type Public
The Heritage Harbor Golf Club measures nearly 7,000 yards from the back tees and is one of the more challenging public course layouts in the Tampa Bay area. Four sets of tees have been incorporated into the design, making the course fun for golfers of all skill levels. The swirling winds and strategically located bunkers will play havoc with the players of these finely manicured links. However, the large greens may provide some relief. The premium on the championship course has been placed mainly on the short game. Winding through natural areas and cypress heads, Heritage Harbor Golf Club offers many scenic, unobstructed views. Seven of the eighteen holes have no homesites adjacent to the fairways, offering great, uncluttered golf.

It's a typical public course in every way

Heritage Harbor won't wow you but it's a decent track. Greens are healthy but grainy and a bit slow. Fairways are generous but could use some care. If you are paying $30-$35 it's what you would expect. .

Bring your scuba gear

Water on 17 holes,,sometimes hidden. Many holes with hazards where no indication of distance to or over them. Typical real estate/golf venue.. Greens in very good condition. Fairways so so .Tees vary in condition.

Good value

Good value for the money. Fun course to play.

The course is in pretty good shape but there was some repair work on a couple of the greens.

Otherwise its in good shape.

Mostly good but sorry bunkers

Foursome played between raindrops this time. Course appears in good shape but overall maintenance is lacking. In many places the first cut of rough is above your ankles and not mowed for quite some time. Most of the bunkers have been neglected and noticed many fairway bunkers with clumps of grass growing in them. A little more pride is needed but the course is a fun challenge.

Punched Greens

GolfNow and the course need to make golfers aware course condition. Punched greens should never be a secret or surprise when you arrive to a course.

Course was in good shape. Fairways were better than in the past but the greens were not quite up to usual standard. However, the rate was a great value.

Usually very nice

Today was not my greatest experience. Several of the greens were in something less than great shape, probably the worst I’ve seen them.

Same review

I have to agree with the other reviews, however I think the overall condition is fair and you are playing at a good price. The layout is challenging and accuracy is a must!

For the price I paid I’m not going to complain but if you are looking for much better course condition you have to drive down the road and play at the TPC......

Much Improved

The rains have done a good job softening the rock hard fairways that had been prevalent for the last few months. The greens are rounding into excellent condition. Fairways have thickened so you can actually get a lie that has the ball sitting up and much easier to hit. This is one of the closest golf courses to where I live, and I will be getting there more often if they can keep the progress going.

Sandy

Checked with pro shop before booking and was told there would be no punching until July. We got there and the greens had just been sanded. Disapointed

Greens ok, fairways & rough substandard

Played through the rain. Ask staff if any deals, he said no. I looked online and found a GolfNow deal. Paid $17 each with deal, so not a bad value for the course condition. Greens were in decent shape. Fairways and rough are not in good condition- not horrible, but not very good. Bunkers looked like they hadn’t been touched in some time due to being washed out. With the amount of options avail of other courses around, don’t see a need to return anytime soon.

Rocky Road

I like HH and have played here often. The greens are about as good as I have ever seen them here. BUT-the fairways are as hard as rock with very sparse grass. Almost impossible to take a divot here, so unless you are a sweeper, you will have a tough time elevating the ball, and therefore hard to hold incoming shots on the green.
