Heatherwood Golf Club is the sister course to the Pine Hills Country Club, which is a 30-minute drive away in Manorville. It is a short golf course at a little over 4,000 yards but the layout offers excellent short game practice. It is also a good test of your iron play. There are no par 5s but the golf course has an interesting variety of reachable par 4s and challenging par 3s. Mature trees are abundant throughout the course, specifically concentrated along the fairways. One of the most unique holes is the 11th, which features an optical illusion that causes players to line up in a way that makes their balls go to the right. The trick is to adjust your stance slightly left but even if you are still off the green is mercifully large and forgiving.

Windy day at Heatherwood

Even with 25+ mile an hour winds all in all a great day. The greens were great and the fairways were mowed to perfection.

Very slow pace

Had to stop playing after 15 holes the pace was so slow it took over four hours to play 15 holes the golf course should only take 3-3:15 hours to play because of the length will not go back to play

Always in great shape

This course is always in great shape. Great for busy people, can usually get a round done in 3 hours. Too bad that it is going to be reduced to 9 holes for condos. It will be missed.

In great shape

The course is in seriously great shape. I guess it doesn’t get much play but it should. Go play this course before 9 holes gets sold off for condo’s. It’s a Long Island gem that you can always go play a quick round.

Grandson Intro to golf

Great course for beginner and those who are not long ball hitters. Course was in great shape. Staff great. Only critique is markings and cart paths, had to ask directions to 10th hole and 14 hole since have not played there recently. 14th hole was right in front of us, but there was nothing on the tee that said 14.
