Great Course

Most Florida Courses in this area are flat with lots of water hazards. This one is NOT flat either on fairways or greens. Water is still and issue. Course is in pristine condition and the staff keeps it that way. While its a challenge its a beautiful layout and the homes on the course are at a very good distance, so you get that true country club feel.

Very Nice

Course had been aerated so the greens were fast and bumpy. Rest of the ciurse was good or soggy because of all the rain. Our twosome was stuck behind a foursome. We were able to go through them on the turn and it was smooth sailing for the back nine. Overall a pretty nice day.

First time playing Heron Creek.

We had a magnificent experience playing the Heron Creek Golf course. We played the Marsh and the Oaks nine hole courses and they were in very nice condition. They have many options for where you can tee off from depending on your age or skill level. All tee boxes were in great condition. I saw a very small (2" long) alligator on the first hole along the side of the cart path.
I would strongly recommend this course to anyone and I will definitely play this course again.

Heron Creek - Creek/Marsh

1st time on this track. Played Creek-Marsh 18. Great layout & challenging. Fairways/greens in exceptional shape for typical hot/dry Florida summer. Long drives between some holes which can also be viewed as an opportunity to cool off. Members are given priority but probably not an issue (esp in summer; winter might be another story). Will play again, regularly!

Issue every-time I play here

This course puts groups off both active nines in the morning which is fine but we turned in 2 hrs 5 min and had a 20 min wait on our 10th due to them booking times so late. Not the first time it’s happened. Back 9 took 3+ hours due to slow play in front and no ranger until 17. Additionally, they changed our tee time without letting us know. Really like the course but done with them since this happens so often.

Trash

Course is in decent condition for the money go play sarasota national way better course and friendlier staff. They do not enforce time management on this course expect to play a 6 hr round for 18 holes. I was a single and a four some didnt let me pass for the whole round, and after the ranger drives right past me and having the ground crew even stop and say thats horrible that the ranger and pro shop are not enforcing the rules. Will never play with course again and I used to play this course 2 times a week. This course always forgets who keeps it in business in the off season. Really sad and pathetic. The pro shop gentlemen when had the nerve to tell me to tuck in my shirt, so they will enforce that rule but not slow play horrible course and horrible staff will copy and paste this review everyday so people don't forget how they treat people and the course!

Exceptional course

Easily one of the best courses in southwest Florida. Excellent condition and challenging layout. Enough different tee boxes to accommodate golfers of all abilities but novices will struggle. Summertime rate is a steal.

Herron Creek

Great 27 holes and facility. Have played it 4 times and every time the pro shop staff was rude or indifferent.

After two years living in Pelican Pointe & playing that course 2-3 times a week II am joining Mission Valley. Great track & friendly senior management.
