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.

No rangers

Absolute miserable round of golf. One 4 some holding up the entire course. 3 separate groups waiting on the same hole. Asked the pro shop to send a ranger after 9 holes and was told there was nothing he could do about it. Unacceptable. It’s not that hard to send someone out to tell them to move faster or let everyone play through.

Good Value

Greens were in good shape. Sand traps were like concrete but in fairness it had rained for nine consecutive days. Fairways were well below average absent from grass or with crab grass throughout. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Course needs some tlc.

Not as good as it used to be

I played this course last spring and it was enjoyable. This time the weeds in the fairways were excessive. Sand traps had very little sand but lots of shell, rocks, and mostly clay. Greens had been poorly mowed with the mower blades uneven. Areas on some greens had depressions void of dirt or grass up to a half inch deep and the size of a basketball around. If the course looks like this in September it is going to be a long winter for the greens keepers. The clubhouse is over the top nice as is the staff friendliness. They just need to spend a little more money on weed control and fertilizer.

Friendly Neighborhood Course

Staff was amazing. Friendly and addressed pace of play once notified. Due to COVID, no beverage cart. Due to seasonal rain, course was not in good conditions; muddy fairways, tall grass patches in fairway, bunkers were under water/ ponds (note: it have been raining all month).

We beat the rain.

Course is in fair condition mostly because the bunkers are in poor shape (not much sand and mostly mud) along with some areas not being mowed due to wet conditions. The course is getting better each time I’ve played it. The greens are rolling and most fairways are in good shape. Considering the time of year it’s really not bad. This was my third time Playing it and I’d play it again.

Look Elsewhere - Horrible Condition

Normally, I try to find the positive in everything. After all, a bad day at the course is better than a good day at the office. But...this course is not in playable condition. We chose this course based on the reviews we read and those reviews were not correct.
I’ll start with the positives. The course is a great and very challenging layout. Water comes into play on many holes and shot management is really needed. The pro shop staff, the starters/rangers, and the bartender who fixed our lunchtime turn food (a foot long hotdog and 2 waters) were very friendly and sincere. After a slow start (50 minutes for 3 holes) we did move along and finished all 18 in 4 hours and 15 minutes (thank you rangers).
The only negative was the condition of the course. It’s heartbreaking. They have a beautiful course and the owners have obviously bled it dry. Most of the fairways had more weeds than grass. The bunkers are collapsing (or have collapsed) and some are just mud pits. Many of the bunkers have grass and weeds growing throughout them. Many of the tee box areas were just sand or weeds. Several of the greens had gouges in them. It was sad. I asked the bartender if maybe the course was recently sold or had a new management company and was told no - the same family had owned it for awhile.
For golfers, skip this course. The condition isn’t worth even a practice round. And for the owners, shame on you for letting a beautiful layout get into this condition. And for goodness sakes, go out there and empty your trash cans. Ugh!!!
FYI - I do have photos of the mess but they wouldn’t upload.

Nice layout, conditions could be better.

If you can live with a some rough edges, this is a fun course to play and one of my favorites. It could be a premier course in the area and it is apparent that they are working to improve conditions.

Good play value for price

Tee boxes, Fairways, Greens great shape for this time of year. Heavy rain here lately so play was cart path only which we figured going in. So long game with lots of walking. That`s fine, hey, we got to play. Had a couple rain delays under shelter. Restrooms were locked. Had non pleasant return of cart with attendant, very rude. Finished round around 4:00. Employee told us they were closed and we should have been in earlier. Stated message was sent to all on course on the cart GPS message screen. WE never received such. Should nave had employee come out to clear course. This employee needs customer service tune up. Don`t want anyone to lose employment in these trying times, someone should help this guy with proper manner, Thanks.

Incomplete golf round

We were on hole 13 at 7 p.m. and we received a message from the clubhouse saying that they were closing in 20 minutes and that we needed to finish the hole. There was at least an hour left of daylight and if we were not called in, we could have played at least 3 more holes.

Nice course. Plenty of room between greens and tee boxes to forget some bad putts if needed. Really nice lay out with open fairways. Not a lot of houses to worry about, but there is water on almost every hole. Also the tee boxes were really soggy in the morning. If you can try to start your round around 9:30 or later. The early morning rounds are extremely wet!!
