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.

There is new ownership and management at Heritage Isles. I have been playing here regularly since I moved to New Tampa in 2005. The course is in the best shape I have ever seen it in all those years. We played today and watched a greenskeeper riding up the fairways filling divots. The fairways actually have grass and your ball will sit up ever so slightly like on a low tee. The new people take pride in the course and it shows. Highly recommended

Called ahead to check course conditions

Told greens were punched 10 days ago and healed nicely

NOT SO!

Greens were like putting on a cobblestone street

and then came the SAND WAGON

Spewing sand on every green ahead of us

I’ve been playing Heritage Isles for about six years now, and it has become my go-to course. From the white tees, length isn’t an issue, but you always have to think about setting up your next shot. Most fairways look open, but a careless tee shot, even one that lands in short grass, can leave you with a difficult approach. The 3rd hole is an example of this. Leave your tee shot out to the right, and you’ll have a tough time reaching in two. Just a few yards to the left, though, and you’re in business. Since the renovation last year, the greens have become much more predictable, and it’s now easier to putt consistently. The remodeled restaurant has plenty of big-screen TVs and a new menu with a number of good choices.

It was my first time playing but thought it was a great course in good condition, but greens were a little slower than I’m used. We’ve had a lot of rain recently so not sure if that’s why they were not cut or rolled to speed them up. I’d play again for $38 though.

Beautiful course for a great price fairways are wide, greens were a little slow but in great condition my only negative comment was the bar for food and drinks they were short staffed and if you had a meal ticket goodluck cuz you'd be waiting to get your food and drink. Besides that great course.

Greens are slow to moderate. They rolled true and smooth, but lacked the roll-out. Nice layout and in good shape. Busy in the morning, but we played without much waiting. For the price I will probably add it to the rotation.
