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.

Great value

Greens were a little slow for my liking, but we're in good shape other than a few repair areas on some. Must keep drives on fairway or there is a 2- 3 inch rough to contend with. Sand traps were rough. Hard with weeds and not grated. If you like target golf, you will like this course. Enjoyable round. We played in the afternoon and had the course to ourselves.

Golf with great friends

We play here every Thursday afternoon. This place is a pleasure to play.. The layout is excellent,the conditions are as good as can be expected considering the rough summer with all the rain. Playing here has made us better players. You can’t just stand on the tee and tater one! however that could work if you’re in the fairway. This is our favorite place.

Wet but fun

Course was very wet but I expected this due to the rain. All courses are soaked but conditions still very nice. Course has driving range and practice area to warm up. Nice layout that makes u think a little bit and greens in nice shape(a few had some spots but not bad IMO) 2nd time playing and enjoyed and would recommend. We tees off early so pace was great but not sure about later in the day. Great course for $40 I will return

Cart Path only should not detour

I played this course for a second time on July 26th in very wet conditions. The course was cart path only and it was forecasted to rain later on in the day so I booked an early morning tee time. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised to find out they would let me out a little bit ahead of my tee time to avoid the rain. This course has incredible greens and a fantastic layout. In my opinion, I dont feel that there is a weak hole on the golf course. There are definitely some holes where driver from the tee box is too much. Overall, the course is in fantastic shape and I have enjoyed each time I have played there.

A Nice Day at Heritage Isles

Our threesome started on time around 9. Course conditions were almost ideal for good scores: dry, but not parched, and a low shot could roll for some distance. The greens were smooth and fast, but not so fast that a ball wouldn’t hold. The weather was hot and humid, but this is Florida in the summer, so that’s just the way it is.

The only minor irritant was pace of play. The group in front of the foursome ahead of us was taking its sweet time, and that slowed us all down. The ranger tried to get them to pick up the pace, but only had modest success. Otherwise, it was a good day at the course.

Very challenging course

From Blue tee, total yardage is less than 6,000. But, the course is tough, most of Par 3 are about 180 yards long and not easy to on the green by tee shot. Some holes are very tight, especially from tee shot area with the trees. I was very bad on these holes. Unfortunately, the greens are not smooth, the putting ball was bouncing a lot.
In overall, I like this type of challenge course. I will revenge sometime.

Aerated Greens

The course was in good shape considering the heavy rain it’s taken on recently. The greens were aerated and I didn’t know it ahead of time. Great layout with a lot of short risk vs reward holes from the blue tees. The course also has a driving range, which is a huge plus in the New Tampa area.

For the money, the best course in Tampa.

While you will not pay more than $45 for a tee time on the weekend at peak season (at least $20 less than comparable courses in the area) the value is not the best commodity this course has to offer. I have played heritage for four years now, at least monthly. The consistently quick and deceptively challenging greens keep me coming back and I have never had an issue with the condition of the tee boxes, fairways, or even the rough. Layout is fun with several memorable holes and a good mix of links/neighborhood style course with plenty of distance. The only real complaints with this course pertain to pace of play, be sure to book early on the weekends and still be prepared for a few minutes of understandable delay.

The course is always in great shape. Tee boxes, fairways and greens. I play this course often and never had any issues. I usually play late in the afternoon and never had issues with pace of play. Fun course. Par 3s are very long from the tips and blue tees.

Sunday Golf

The course was very crowded and we had to wait in several holes. The course was in outstanding shape. The greens were awesome and consistent. There are several challenging holes. We plan to play here again. We did not try the restaurant attached to the course so no rating.

Consistently good course

We played Heritage Isles and found the course to be in excellent condition. Only one fairway, 14, had any water on it from the previous night’s rain, and the greens were all in good shape. This is the consistency we’ve come to expect from Heritage Isles
