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.

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......

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.

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.

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.

First time playing heritage and it's not in good shape. The fairways are hard and mostly brown, same about the tee boxes. It looks like the greens were much larger at one time and they decided to make them halve the size, but they never really fixed the aprons The best part about the course were the greens, They were on the slower side, but in pretty good shape. The course is short, so decided to play the blues, which would be whites on any other course, but it does make the course a bit more challenging. But when you hit the fairways and have to constantly move the your ball to at least be on something green, it's not good. If you can get the green fees for between $20 - $25 it's worth it to just get out and challenge yourself, but dont expect much.

Played the Gold tees this time, and wow what a difference. The course is completely different from those tees and offers 18 different challenges unthought of from the Blues or Whites. Thoroughly enjoyed the round with my friends. Greens are mostly flat, but putted true. Great value for the money especially on Mondays and Tuesday in the afternoon for $1 per hole with cart.

This course always has decent greens. The drought conditions has kept the fairways quite sparse and often poor lies. Definitely needs TLC in the fairways and tee boxes. However, playable and many amateurs will probably be satisfied.

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
