First Time Playing

First and last time.

Staff was rude! People swimming in the water Hazzard while we're hitting.. Pace was decent but was stacked with foursomes. Will not be backed. Felt very disrespected.

Rough in good condition but is to long. Hard to find a ball in it. Slows down play.
To many over hanging limbs very close to the fairway and not far from the tee box.
Sand traps are very bad. With very little sand. It’s almost like hitting out of clay.
Greens & fairways are in good condition.

Overbooked

Slowest play I have ever experienced here. They way overbooked the tee times. 2-3 groups deep at every tee box on front 9. Literally waiting 20 minutes to tee off at each hole. Pace was a little quicker on back nine, but still very slow>

Heather Downs has seen better days

Was stuck behind a group of 4 older people, one of which was a woman, and some of them were members. I was playing as a single and the group ahead of me was playing with another group of 4 ahead of them. Took me almost 4 hours to play! Usually can golf 18 in 2.5-3 hours! On the bright side, the weather was nice and people behind me were nice and agreed that it was ridiculous that they didn’t let me through. Probably won’t be back for awhile.

Mr Eric Simon

Have played this course numerous time’s the last couple years. The staff is as good as there is in the Toledo Ohio area. Today it was my son and I who played and enjoyed every minute. The only drawback was the two groups ahead of us being a foursome and a twosome who both struggled to allow our faster group to play through. The course could be better served to occasionally have a marshal make a course visit to assist slow play.

Again, the staff both inside and outside are as nice and helpful as any course we play during the year and are to be commended !

Thanks Eric and Jared Simon

Okay

Look...this course is okay, but definitely not what you may be expecting when you think “country club.” For the price we paid using a hot deal ($30) it was definitely worth it, but I wouldn’t pay much more than that to play here. That pretty much sums it up. Great for $30, but look elsewhere if you have to pay closer to $40 or more. I clicked “yes” to indicate that I would recommend this course to a friend because there was no neutral option, but as I said above, it depends on the deal.

like the course but starting tee times right after the final tee time of a high school girls tournament really slowed things down for the first 9 holes.
A lot of leaves on the course including the fairways and they have only just begun to fall. Really tough to find your ball.
Otherwise the course is in pretty good shape.

Pretty course

Nice course with lots of trees. Greens were a little hard and could’ve been in better shape. Fairways were decent. Overall, a pretty course with some challenging holes.
