About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 6976 yards
Slope 137
Rating 74.3

Heritage Isles is a scenic course that cut through native cypress heads and natural wetland areas. At 6,976 yards from the tips, it is one of the most demanding public golf courses in the Bay area. While water does come into play on all 18 holes the premium has been put on the short game. With large, meticulously maintained greens, those players who are handy on the putting surface should be able to shave a few strokes off their scores.

Enjoyed my round but conditions quite average

I really enjoy playing at Heritage Isle. However, the greens are really in rough shape. Fairways are okay, a bit thin but alright compared to the greens. Traps are in good shape.

Beware of the extra slow greens.

The course has a unique layout and is not cookie cutter by any means. There is a big difference between the back tees and the next tees in yardage, so we played blue on the front and gold on the back. The greens are in terrible condition, slow with some type of funky top dressing. I was very disappointed with the greens, usually the greens are in decent shape, every green was horrendous. Everyone there has always been pleasant. The cart girl needs a few pointers on driving her cart towards people who are in the tee box, she could get hit by an errant shot. Overall I won't be back for a while because of the terrible conditions of the greens. Also I'm not in favor of a water driving range.
The bunkers have decent sand and most of the fairways are in good shape also.

Slow play

Slow play. Over 2 1/2 hours for the front nineUnfortunately we never saw a Ranger the whole day and a twosome was holding up two foursomes including us.
When we made the turn another foursome jumped in front of us said they had stopped for lunch and the course told them they could go out so unfortunately we were not able to play the back nine.
A waste of $65

Great greens

Pleasantly surprised at the condition of the greens. Unfortunately, three putted too many as they were quite fast. Great day of golf with three locals at a Hot deal great price.

Overall the course was in very good condition, fairways and sand traps or well-maintained. Will play this course again very soon

Got A Better Rating Then Deserved

Rated a little higher than should have because of no half point scoring option. Overall from tee to green the course is in good shape. Greens were rough and had several that had some bad areas.

Lack of ranger through out the afternoon on a Sunday turned a good paced front 9 into a marathon backside with group ahead playing at a incredibly slow pace and not allowing faster group behind them to play through.Fore!!!

Great course

You can make this course as easy or as difficult as you want. Plenty of challenge for everyone. Move up for an easier time navigating around the course or move back to really challenge yourself. Greens are fast but fair. Lots if water and sand

Good Conditions, Fast Play

We happened to play when almost no one else was starting around our time and we (twosome) played in less than 3 hours. Fairways, rough, etc. is in good condition. Greens were very fast.

Only issue was with a few greens. Too many weeds and/or big sanded areas but it was spotty even on those greens affected. Shouldn't deter you from playing.

If you playing for the first time, check the scorecard for distances. For example, the four par 3's from the blue tees played anywhere from 185 to 200 yards today. Much shorter from the white tees on the par 3's.

Not a hilly course there's enough small contours that you have non-flat lies often.

Presently surprised

Haven't played the course in a couple of years and for the life of me I can't understand why. It is in wonderful shape and has a great layout. The staff in the pro shop was friendly and the starter was entertaining. Didn't have time to use the restaurant as a couple of our guys had other commitments but will try it out next time. Glad to have a new course in our rotation.

Enjoyable

I played this course many times in the past and recently a month ago. Most of the greens show rough patches around the edges, but as there are very large greens they do not affect play or putting. “Course is working on improving greens appearance.

All in all and enjoyed the round.

First Time Playing

Very challenging course

This is first time for me to play here. It is very challenging and tough course to play. Not good for beginners. Many water hazards and snap traps. On Some holes,, tee shots need to aim very tight opening area between the woods.
If your ball is in a rough, it is difficult to make a shot. But, the courses are beautiful. I would like to challenge here again.
