Good Course, Service OK

The course was in fantastic shape and it was a perfect spring day. The closing stretch of holes heading back to the clubhouse were fantastic. Can't I remember any of the other holes, a stark contrast from Harbour Town and Atlantic Dunes.

One of our carts died on 16 and the number on the back of the scorecard wasn't leading to any person as we were told "the clubhouse closes at 7". Also didn't receive much of an apology for the inconvenience.

Great Course in Great Shape!

Layout: The course is extremely well designed. Each hole was different and there was a variety of challenges.

Conditioning: The entire course was in great shape. The other courses we have played this trip have had a lot of dried out tee boxes and dead spots on the fairways. Heron Point was in perfect shape all around. The greens were kind of hard, but they were perfectly green and rolled great.

Overall, Heron Point is a great course and it is in tremendous shape.

Nice course, better options

No complaints. Course was fun to play and in good condition. With so many good courses in area, Heron Point is on the pricier end without being a noticeably superior experience. HP was fine and I'm glad I played. Treated like a royal, but better value elsewhere for this intermediate level golfer.

Good condition

I have no complaints. Course was in good condition. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I found the course to be very fair, offering appopriate challenges for all levels of golfer. Visually appealing. Heron Point was great, but for me was pricey compared to other high quality courses in area. No regrets playing a good course. Lots of courses to choose from means my return visit to HP will be a lower priority than some other courses. That's more a statement on HHI as a great golf destination than deficiencies in Heron Point.

Beautiful Course, but just not for me.

This is a very nice course. Well maintained, Great staff, excellent off course amenities, I recommend it for the locker room alone. With all that said, it’s just not a course for me. I’m an intermediate level player, and the layout wasnt that enjoyable for me. The undulations in the fairways didn’t always reward you with a good lie following a nice tee shot.

Greens still recovering

I loved this course, but be aware of some short doglegs off the tee. I got into trouble a few times without knowing the course layout. The greens were still recovering from a recent punch (8 days earlier) - yes, I was aware of this in advance, so I pushed this course to my last day of vacation. They were pretty good, but I'm excited to get back out there and eat this course up next time! Thanks for having Yuenglings in the bev cart!

Nice course

We were not very impressed with the course. It was beautiful and the conditions were great, but we could play two, or maybe three times at other courses for the rate we paid here.

Grossly overpriced

Average course layout, average conditions, terrible value. I've played numerous courses with better layouts and conditions for half the price. Hard to believe it's a Dye course.

Do or Dyed

On a beautiful afternoon I just joined three other gentlemen for a round on the well conditioned Heron Point course at Sea Pines. The course was very well conditioned and the pace of play was very good. The course is well run by very competent staff from pro shop through to the rangers. The only issue was pin placement were tucked with numerous holes on slopes. The rest of my group left defeated and unlikely to play there again. I will return for the challenge and conditions!

Beautiful course

Beautiful course and well cared for greens. However, don't let the beauty distract you, it is a challenging course. Great time and I can't wait to return.

FOG

This was the 1st course of a 3 course golf package, The staff was very friendly from arrival and check in to getting range balls and getting me going to the 1st tee box. The fog was so thick that morning, I could only see 1/3 up the fairway and it stayed thick for most of the round. I was paired with a walking player who was familier with the course. I have to say it was a blurr but everything was in very good shape, the greens where fair but slow due to the heavy air ( sounds good ) my putting wasn't bad and I felt like I played ok after a 12 hour drive with an 8 30 tee time the next morning. I finished with a 96 a 46 on the front and 50 on the back. Too many double bogies on both sides. All in All I'm ok with it, playing for the 1st time. If you book a package make sure this is one of them.
Thank you everyone at Heron Point
