The greens were in great shape, the tee boxes were good. The fairways had little grass on them. Played with a coupon, which made it easier to swallow, but would have been livid if paid regular price.

Do not waste your time. An absolute disgrace of a golf course. Completely burnt out fairways and very little grass on the course period. Rocks and sand are randomly riddled throughout the fairways. Spend a couple extra bucks and go to Wentworth Hills down the street.

I wish we had chosen a different course to try. Course condition is unacceptable. I wouldnt play there again for free. I was surprised golf now would advertise this course and may not play new courses on golf now u til they start screening them.

Greens in good shape, bunkers in excellent shape. Soft sand no rocks. Rough in fair condition. Electric golf carts were great and surprising that heather hill had them. Some so called high end courses ( I'm talking to you shining rock with your pitiful gas carts that sound like their dying) could use carts like these. One issue was poor condition of fairways probably due to dry hot summer but many bare spots and areas where crab grass and clovers were growing in middle of fairway and rock hard in spots. Lack of drinkable water a problem too especially on a hot summer day. They had water fountains on four or five holes to drink out of but I wouldn't remmend drinking that water

This course is an absolute disgrace. The fairways barely have any grass and in many places it's bare dirt and ROCKS. On multiple greens, the replaced cup placements were an inch to two inches lower than the rest of the green. You'd be better off playing in your own back yard.

1st course this year that i was disappointed in the conditions, hardpan and dead grass, great for long drives. greens were ok. played north to middle 9's. they need to re-evaluate the policy of leaving a license when you get a cart. only a few places do this and with todays id theft issues who wants to leave their license.

Played Middle / South on day before Fathers day, it was going to be a washout on Fathers Day so the course was overwhelmed and the front nine took over 2 hrs.<br/> Course itself is decent shorter course, some fairways have bald/stone patches but greens were in excellent condition and played well.<br/> Would play again if it wasn't so packed as it wasn't enjoyable waiting 10 mins between shots due to overcrowding of course

I am not sure why HH is charging full price right now... The fairways on the North course are awful, every "rough" area is full of rocks and dirt... the type of course where your ball will roll out until it hits a patchy/rocky/uneven lie in the "rough" (dirt)... the greens are in good condition but the rest of every hole is awful. I would not recommend playing this course anytime soon especially because, like I said, they are charging full rates right now with course conditions that are significantly worse than mid season. Why? Now I probably won't go back all year.

Friendly reception at the pro shop, yet very professional.The greens were in great shape, however the fairways need some serious work. :Lots of hardpan and areas needed to be re-seeded. A fun round just the same, and would give it a shot again.
