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.

Solid Course

I have played the course many times. The conditions right now are pretty good. Sand traps need lots of work. Some are unplayable. Greens are slow but true. I played all lies on the fairways. Pace of play is good.

TO WET

I don’t know how many inches of rain we’ve had in the last week but I can assure you the course did not need to have the sprinklers on. Yes, the course was being watered when I pulled up. If your inside 60 yards good luck trying to hit a wedge or finding a dry spot on the tee boxes. Not very enjoyable!!!

STOP WATERING THE COURSE!!!!

Too wet to play

Showed up to play with my two sons today. I did not know They only had the front 9 open. Not noted when booked on GN. It was also cart path only.
The starter was not very nice as his only words were that he would be checking our tires for grass clippings since it was cart path only.
The course was so wet it should have been closed.
We stopped after 9 because conditions were so bad.
The greens had also been aerated this week so very bumpy and slow.
I have played this course many times but it needs to dry out before I will be back.

Nice course

I like this course, has a lot of fun challenging holes. I like the front better than the back. The conditions were good and however the greens were a little shaggy. We did get rained out after 15 holes as the course lays East if Interstate 75 and is victim to afternoon thunderstorms in the summer months. The ranger was out and checking on phase of play all day. Definitely worth the cost and the challenge. If you haven’t played it give it a whirl.

Very clean. This is definitely a strategy approach golf course. Would be really tough for someone that plays 2-3 times a year. You have to know clubs on this course.

Great shape

This may be the best shape I’ve ever seen it and I used to live there. Greens were a little slow. Excellent time, played in about 4 hours on a Saturday morning. The ranger came around about 4 times to check on the pace of play with our group.

Nice course good condition

This course is a regular on our rotation. Conditions have never disappointed. They get a lot of play, so pace is sometimes slow, but after a long work week, enjoy a bit of extra time relaxing so no biggie. Not much interaction with staff these days, but all seem friendly and attentive. Need to concentrate on almost all tee shots with approach shots more straightforward. Yardage between blues and whites only noticeable on a few holes. Greens in good shape and roll true and at a good pace. Most holes are lined with homes which takes a bit away from aesthetics.

Great Course

I almost hate to say this but the course is in great shape as usual. I hate to say this because more people will golf there! The greens were a little slow but a good golf courses will let them grow a little high in the summer so they will get better for the winter.

Always a joy to play

Heritage Isle s is one of my favorite golf courses in the Tampa area. I live in Central New York, but come down to South Tampa to visit my two sons for about a month and a half. Mostly down here to play golf. I come down in the summer because I love the heat and more importantly the cheap summer golf rates. especially in the afternoons. As for heritage Isle, always in great condition from tee through greens. Greens are excellent, but a bit on the slow side. Overall a really fun experience as always. Would easily strongly recommend this course for both conditions and price.
