Type Public
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 5,926 yards at its longest tees and plays to a par of 70. Renowned golf course designer Richard Phelps designed the course, which opened in 1973. 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.

First time at Heather Ridge

Despite back nine being closed for aeration, still had enjoyable time playing front nine 2x. Jim at the pro shop was very polite, couteaous, and accommodating. Appreciate the fact that ice, cups and water are available for free... especially on hot day!!

Hidden Gem

I haven’t played this course in more than 20 years and had forgotten how fun the layout was and the challenge it provided. Lots of over the water shots along with narrow shot windows. So for a shorter length layout it provides ample challenge and reward for for well placed shots.

I’m sorry

Love the course. Has a very nice variety of different holes. Some you need the big dog, some you need a fairway wood of the tee.

Dispite wandering thru condos on many holes, it’s very reasonable and challenging at the same time. Number 7 a par 5 that is a zig zag, requires a plan of attack on every hole.

Today I played with a group of three. Great guys but we were extremely slow. The ranger (yes a ranger) was on us a little. Rightfully so! One of the guys gave him a little unwarranted crap. I apologized to the ranger, then a few holes later, I smacked a pulled hybrid off a tree and hit the Marshal sign on the front windshield of his cart. I’m not sure I’ll be invited back. I don’t think he gets paid enough for this abuse.

But he took it quite well which is very surprising.

I apologized yet again and tried to save bogey! Lol
