Heritage Harbour Golf Club (formerly known as Stoneybrook Golf Club at Heritage Harbour) plays through a landscape highlighted by mature, wooded wetland preserves and ponds. The golf course plays through spacious residential corridors, creating strategic risk/reward holes. At approximately 7,100 yards, multiple tees allow the golf course to be enjoyed by players of all abilities. The golfer who succeeds at challenging the hazards and angles will be rewarded with the proper angle for the next shot and an opportunity for a birdie. Designed by Arthur Hills, one of the world's top golf course designers, Heritage Harbour Golf Club is located just a half mile east of I-75 at exit 220.

Great layout

Very challenging course with a fun layout. The greens were rough though, recently cut with grass clippings all over them. The tee boxes were also pretty bare. The course has a lot of potential otherwise.

I would recommend this golf course to anyone. 5* from the staff to the course maintenance. Coming from Tampa it is convenient that it's right off of the interstate 75

Why is it open?

The absolute worst conditions ever. The only thing decent in this course is the greens. Every fairway looks like it was just cultivated and plowed. If I was in the pro shop taking money from people to play this course in this condition i wouldn’t be able to sleep at night. I lasted about 7 holes and had to leave before it was too late to find somewhere else to play for the day. It’s not like playable. Not even for $5. You’re better off at the range. What a waste of $40. What a joke

Once again, Heritage Harbor proved to be in excellent condition and another wonderful experience. The weather deteriorated rapidly in the morning but course personnel advised of the approaching storms to keep us all safe. I appreciated the advice and took it. A great value and experience.

Negative Approach

Booked tee time through Golf Now.
Great deal if you don’t mind working around the maintenance team aerating the fairways and around the greens while your trying to play.

Seriously. While standing on the tee box the tractor is pulling equipment up the fairway, across the tee boxes. He turns around and starting heading back across the tee box and down the fairway. If our group had not moved out of the way, the drivers attitude was, Ill run over you.

Course Review

My Group was disappointed, we were not told the course was going to be aerated, Hole 1 and the Back Nine..... made Tee set-up difficult, strange bounces by the Ball in the fairway as well as around the green..... Why they did not go over the course and pick up the loose grass plugs is beyond me..... Very Poor. I suggest they post on their Website as well as on the course what action is being performed on the course.

Terrible Conditions

The course was aerated the day I played, which made the course almost unplayable. It was horrible. I would never pay to play any course in those conditions. I know it has to be done, but inform customers before taking their non refundable money.
DO NOT PLAY HERE, THEY DON’T DESERVE YOUR BUSINESS

Good layout

One of the tougher courses in this area. Tees and fairways could do with some work but greens are good. Course offers you a chance to post a good score but is punishing on missed shots. Friendly staff.

Thursday Round in the wind

Becoming one of three courses we like to play in the area. Got placed two groups behind several sets of ladies so the pace was dreadful. Fortunately they only played 9 and we could move on. A Marshall would be helpful here as the foursome in front refused to give way despite waiting on every shot and having a hole ahead wide open.
Course is in reasonable shape. Some of the fairways lies are very tight given the grass growth is minimal. I like the layout here. From the back tees the 3s and 4s are quite challenging. The par 5s have great risk/reward shots which really force you to play smart. Since there’s no drink cart or water, really wish they would allow small coolers.

Management

Be advised that during this time when the personal safety procedure of one person-one cart is in effect be prepared to wait an unreasonable amount of time waiting for a cart. Especially if you don't book before 10:00.

We booked an 11:06 tee time and waited for close to an hour for carts to be available. At which point there was a cursory wipe down of the cart that was completely inadequate. The irritating part of this experience is that it could have been avoided if management had used a little common sense and not overbooked the tee times.

Management knows how many carts they have, they SHOULD know how long it takes to play a round of golf and easily adjust the available tee times so that there will always be carts available at the appropriate time.

As a result a good day of golf turned into a lousy day.

Hello. We're very sorry for any inconvenience. It's hard for us to judge the cart situation. We can have more/less on any given day depending on how many players come to play from the same household and ride together, like family members and roommates. We want to make it up to you. Please give us a call so we can get you taken care of. Thanks! (941) 746-2696
