Fun

We play Heatherwood as often as we can because we get great rates. Today, the weather was beautiful and not many people on course when we played. The only downside was many of the tee boxes were under repair so didn’t always know where to tee up for ladies tee. The tee boxes we did use needed repair, as well. The fairways were great, as were the greens. The owners of Heatherwood are doing a great job getting the course in tip top shape. It is a diamond in the rough.

Tight Course

This was my first time playing Heatherwood. I enjoyed the time there. You can tell they are trying to improve the conditions. The greens and fairways were in good shape. This is a narrow course, with a lot of mature wooded areas and some areas that drop off into vegetation you won't be able to recover from. You can't just grip it and rip it here. You'll have to place your shots.

It’s good to get out but...

It’s a good enough track. Extremely tight and unforgiving...so bring a lot of balls or your A game. Greens are in good shape but like the rest of the course it is hard and firm and not a lot holds.

Pace of play is terrible. Need a Marshall riding the course I’m busy days. 4 groups waiting to tee at the turn, don’t let guys get club sandwiches, have a turn menu hot days or ready made stuff. Better yet have a cart girl. Played the back 9 with 3 groups on the same hole (tee fwy green) everyone waiting on everyone.

Golf

If you are a beginner in golf looking to have fun bang balls around, drink & have fun with friends this is a cheap & affordable course for you—

If your a competitive golfer and not someone who can hop out of the car and play 18 holes without practicing before your round I do not recommend this course.

I paid for range balls and could not hit anything but my sand wedge before play, the greens are surprisingly in great condition for a neighborhood golf course.

Majority of the holes are very tight easy to hit a good shot and have your ball under a leaf lost.

Some of the holes are a confusing lay out with weird shots—
T boxes are difficult to locate on some holes.

I give this course overall a 5 out of 10.

Clubhouse, Golf Carts, Greens— 9 out out of 10.

I’m not a review guy

Wow. Do no play this course if you want to hit driver or have a putt roll more than 5 feet. Was very underwhelmed by this course. For $18 I guess I couldn’t expect much, but I will not be returning. Goofy target golf with poor poor greens.

Heatherwood is a challenge

The pro was great, the staff very friendly and helpful, the food looked great. Greens great, teeboxes great, fairways great. Sand traps left natural. Layout best for a cart. Course is narrow with natural rough guarding most fairways and greens. Enjoyed it all.

Nice round of golf at Heatherwood Hills. The fairways were in good shape and the greens were outstanding, especially with how hot it’s been lately. Pace of play was ok, you still have people out there who have a problem letting a single player through, even though they’re in groups of 4 or 5. I paid $15.00 on Golfnow and it’s well worth the hour drive.

First time.

This course turned out to be really nice but in a sneaky way. It’s a lot of up and down and it feels like you’re constantly plying from a down hill lie. The distance markers can be very deceiving. Several tee shots I thought I could drive ended up in the woods. They were a few burnt grass spots but nothing major. Overall I thought it was a really good course to play for a casual Friday morning round.

Great Course and Staff

I love the course, even though it can be difficult from the back tees. The fairways are in good shape and the greens are excellent. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. Will continue to play.

First time playing this course

The course was in good shape. There were some holes where they let the bunkers go but the greens were in excellent condition. Fun course that I will play again.

Affordable course

It was cheap and the pace of play was good. Course was not in very good shape and bunkers were terrible. Tee boxes were in bad shape as were some of the greens. Course layout was good.
