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.

First time here and a pleasant experience, very kool design (layout) will require some precise shots at times. Greens have some adulation for sure and depending what tees you play from can change the course a lot and I love that, not just longer or shorter but almost a different course. Liked it so much, I'm going back this week! ONLY down side was the range grass was not very good at all, practice greens were quite good....

Hidden gem, and it's an hour drive for me.....

I've been playing golf for 25 years and this was one of the most fun courses ever at an incredible price. The course was in great shape, had a lot of very interesting holes with great bunkering. Not a fancy well known designer but a great layout. Lots of wildlife around, not too many houses making you feel claustrophobic. Can't beat the price with a stick. Would have been great at twice the price. The course is also easy to find and has nice practice facility too. I wish I didn't live so far away, I would join here in a heartbeat, I could play it every day.

Played Heritage Isles for the first time and LOVED it. Course is in TERRIFIC shape. It's an interesting layout - sufficiently challenging for the low handicapper yet not too tough for the high handicapper to enjoy. The course was not overbooked the day I played, and pace of play was perfect. Despite the one-hour drive, I plan to play Heritage Isles often. I was happy to discover this gem which is in better shape than several much higher-priced courses I've played in the Orlando area. Staff was friendly and welcoming to make for an even more enjoyable day of golf.

First time playing this course and was pleasantly surprised. Fairways were in excellent condition as were the greens. Number and placement of the hazards makes you think about what club to use. Both fairways and greens were faster than I was used to playing but really enjoyed the challenge. Will definitely play it again.

This is one of the best I have played in the Tampa, St. Petersburg Area. There are others that I payed twice the price for half the value.

The course overall is very fair, played from the proper tee for my abilities and had a blast. There are some really cool risk reward par 4's with one being drive-able with fairly generous landing areas.

Tee boxes and greens were perfect. The evening before I played the area had received 3 1/2 inches of rain, which made it cart path only but it was still very playable.

From the front desk clerk to the starter and ranger couldn't have asked for a better customer service and friendliness.

When ever I am in the Tampa area, I would play this course above all others I have played. There was plenty of wild-life. Saw birds, squirrels, a curious raccoon, and a gator. The course was built with houses by the course but they do not come in play and are very nice and there must be a good HOA because they all were well maintained.

Great people, great conditioning, great job.

Thanks again for a wonderful day!
