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.

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.

The course is short but has a nice layout and is so much challenging. The fairways need work tea boxes and greens were OK but greens very slow

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.

The pro shop staff were invisible and could care less if anyone came to play! They were talking to each other and I felt like I was bothering them! No starters and there was 3 people hanging out in the office? No rangers and I could have walked on and nobody seemed to care if I payed or not! Poor management! Front nine greens needed a lot of work yet the back nine greens are beautiful, outstanding and flawless! Need management to wake up there employees because this course is a diamond in the rough! Now I understand why people are moving out to other nearby courses!

At one time this course was one of my favorites but it appears management has decided to let its conditions be decided by nature. The fairways were hard with little grass, no over seeding so the dormant Bermuda was already sparse and now is very sparse. The best lies should not be in the rough but on this course they are.

The course did not oversees the fairways, so a little disappointed, and the greens are a little slow. The layout of the course is fun to play. Every hole is different and interesting AND challenging. Fun to play.

Hooked up w/a local and had a great time playing golf. Saw that it was a 4 star before I booked but really is a 3 star in my opinion. Course needs a little work. For the price I got it on golf now it was ok. I liked the layout. Did make you think a little before you hit your shots.

Played early last year and vowed never again. Greens were awful and traps were full of weeds.

The course was in good shape and the greens were very good. Only 3 showed and issues. Totally different course that played last year. Will be back..

A couple of holes are challenging, but most are straightforward. My wife and i love this golf course as its just enough of a challenge for her and quite fun for me. Approach carefully... as the greens are wide... but not as deep.

Pace of play gets terribly slow. Usually one group messes it up for everyone. Need to have course ranger.

Greens were good, but fairways will only get worse this time of year without seeding with winter rye.
