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.

Need to put a ranger out there. People playing way to slow. Standing in fairway talking while people wait on the tee box. Course was not over booked just needed a ranger to speed up play. Over 4 hours 18 holes.

Fairways were dry but to be expected this time of year. The greens were in good condition . The pace of play got better once we joined the twosome behind us as we were following a foursome then we were 3 twosomes after that .

We will return to play this course again

Despite the little rain in Florida this spring the greens were wonderful, yet the fairways were hard as a rock.

Lots of roll if you stay in the fairways

This is definitely a course with some different holes so it pays to be with someone familiar with the course. Fairly short from the white tees, but if you play the blue or the gold tees, it will play long with some very interesting tee shots. I found the course relatively easy from the whites but maybe it was because I was hitting pretty straight all day. Spraying the ball will get you in trouble as there is water or woods (or both) on almost every hole. Tricky par 5s with double dog legs make proper club selection a must. Fairways were good but a little dry and thin due to lack of rain. I expect when the rainy season comes they will come back pretty easily. Greens were in nice shape. Areas around the green were cut down pretty low so it was easy to putt from 2 or 3 yards off the green. Tee boxes were fair. I liked that homes were not close enough to the course that I worried about hitting one on every tee shot. I really enjoyed the round, had to use just about every club in the bag.

It was a disappointing round as took over 4 1/2 hrs to complete the round. There was a group outing ahead of us and the last group had 5 people in it. One individual was searching for balls in the hazards and the rest of the 5 would wait until he was done searching for balls before they would play there shots so that any one behind them could not hit there shots. Due to no marshalls on the course, it was a very disappointing round.

The course has improved considerably in the past month as the grass has come alive. Fairway lies are good, greens are a bit slow but puttable. With a bit more TLC this course could move up into a preferred category.

If you’re thinking of having a lunch at the turn. Better think again. Don’t dare to take more than five minutes to eat. Orherwise you will be told you give up your place in line and have to wait for an opening to start the back nine. In all my years of golfing I have never been told this. So I chose to ignore this and set off on the back nine. While I was annoyed for awhile I ended up enjoying myself.
