Rating 70.2

The golf course at Heather Ridge provides not only a good game but also spectacular views overlooking the Rocky Mountains. The former private, 18-hole course is 6,106 yards at its longest tees and plays to a par of 70. Renowned golf course designer Richard Phelps designed the course, which opened in 1972. The small greens are undulating and extremely sloped. The course also features narrow fairways and water hazards. The most difficult hole on the Heather Ridge Golf Course is the 10th hole, which is a par-5 that covers 506 yards.

Decent course among houses with some tricky elements

Played for $30 on Golfnow with a cart, so it was a good value. The course is very tightly woven among a housing development. Some of the holes are pretty tight, and it would definitely be a little easier the second time, knowing where the best positions are. Main defense is the greens, which are fast and very undulating.

Not as good as some of the municipal courses, in that the golfers seem to be a little less courteous. Many bunkers weren't raked, ball marks not repaired, etc. Driving range is tight and you hit off of mats. No bunker/chipping area.

Pace of play was about 4:45. There was a marshall but he didn't seem to be able to do anything to speed things up. They claim a goal of a 4 hour round but that didn't happen.

Nonetheless, worth playing if you get a deal.

The bees

I’m not sure what the attraction was but bees were around on every hole. Felt bad killing a few.

Nice local course

I have played here many times and always a challenge.
Not long but a placement course. Bring a good putting stroke because the greens can be fast and then slow other days. The 19th hole is a sure bet for a cold beer and some munchies while telling the tales of that perfect shot today!

Solid course for a good value

Played 18 riding early on a Saturday. The course is in good shape and the greens are also pretty well maintained. They run pretty fast and true. I enjoy the setup of this course and the variance from hole to hole. There are a lot of shorter par 4s that require smart play and various risk/reward scenarios. We had some slow pace of play early but the marshal came out and successfully was able to get the groups ahead of us to pick up their pace of play. Overall, I think this course is a good value and provides a fun challenge.

Hit a house, win a prize!

The holes are tight and the skill level the place attracts is pretty low. Wear a helmet to be safe(r). The course is in relatively good shape. Nothing to be super excited about, but not horrible. My two big issues- there are houses just steps off the fairway on about half the holes. Some holes have houses on both sides. You might care less if you can get a drink, but no beer cart to be seen. Not once time. On Fathers Day.

I managed to get out of there sober, no injuries, and no houses harmed. The others in my foursome weren’t so lucky.... I wouldn’t go back.

Good course, a little pricey

This is a good course- well maintained and not too difficult. The pace was pretty slow- our round tops 5 hours. The price was also a little high for the quality- $45 including cart but no practice balls.

Meh

Unimpressive staff. Horrible pace of play with no marshal appearance on the back nine. Nice greens with funky breaks.

Course was challenging and still growing in. Greens are tough and fast. We were able to play on Friday as a twosome with no pressure from behind. Tees are still sandy and growing in. Good mix of long and short holes. I will go back

Good value and friendly staff

Heather Ridge gives you good bang for your buck. The staff is friendly and accomodating and given it is March I felt the course was in pretty good condition. Ponds and streams had water in them which is rare this time of year and the greens were actually pretty nice. Give them a try!
