Length 3007 yards

Rating 34.7

HeatherRidge Golf Course is a nine-hole course with all the challenges of a full-length course. It's an ideal round for when you don't have time to play 18 holes. Water has a prominent presence throughout thanks to a creek that winds through the entire course with tributaries that snake in and out of the holes and there are also ponds that come into play. You'll find water on a total of seven holes. There are a few other tricky spots to watch out for as well, including subtle breaks in the greens. Hitting straight is the key to scoring well and both accuracy and creative shot-making skills are needed. HeatherRidge G.C. has appeal for players of all skill levels and the affordable rates make it doubly appealing.

11:50am round

The course was in good condition but looks like too many tee times were booked for the same time. Groups were backed up and the wait was long. Our group did not see any marshals during our round.

Great experience

I Live in Hoffman Estates and golf at least twice weekly. Heather Ridge has become our favorite golf place. The atmosphere is with sticks out to us. Friendly people courteous and patient throughout. Not to mention Wendy who remembers our order and makes one hec of a double cheeseburger. She’s super friendly and we enjoy coming on Thursdays and Fridays to see her. Great job Heather Ridge!

Enjoyable round

I really like the layout of this course. However, I played late in the afternoon one day after a large storm and the course was not cleaned from debris, excessive water on the fairways, branches and on one hole there was a tree blocking the cart path. I still enjoyed the round but it would have been nice for the staff to mentioned these issues when I arrived at the clubhouse.

I was very please with the round. The course was in excellent shape and some of the holes were very challenging. The layout of the holes were nicely mixed. I will definitely play in this course again.

Great 9 hole course

Very nice track , nice fairways and nice greens . Great run off when wet . Played from the tips . There’s a long par 3 that was (to the eye ) longer than typical of par 3’s. I’ll play there again no doubt. I play Pine Meadow , Steple Chase etc and for a 9 for the price you can’t beat it!!

Nice 9 Hole Course

This is a very well kept 9 hole golf course. Not very challenging, but a very nice place to play 9 holes with your wife, or to just loosen up your swing.

Relaxed and Fun

First time playing Heather Ridge. Course is perfect for inexperienced golfers and for a group,wanting to get out and have some fun together. A lot of couples playing a relaxed round. Tees and Greens in great shape. Playable for all and still challenging for more experienced golfers. If you’re looking to get in a relaxing 9 holes, Heather Ridge is a great option!

Beautiful 9 holes

Always an enjoyable 9 holes at Heather Ridge in Gurnee, IL. Lots of shade on hot days, mix of long and short game makes for a fun time. Outdoor bar and grill is great for a relaxing break afterwards. Staff is so nice and accommodating.

First Time Playing

Overall an average course, a short 9 holes one of the better ones I’ve played in as a last minute “want to play “ ....found this course beat up by resent rain but they are doing there best in maintaining, tee box and greens fairly good shape Kudos to greens keepers.
Overall I liked it, gave me a chance to get out when larger courses were very busy..
I would return..
