Heron Creek

Course was in good condition. Played Marsh/Creek. Sand traps were in bad condition, if there was enough sand in some traps it was watered down so bad the sand was hard. Hope #1 on the marsh course had a broken sprinkler head in the middle of the fairway……but overall I enjoyed playing the course. Fairways were in good condition and the greens were in good shape.

One of the best golf courses around!

The conditions were prefect. Pace was play was very good, Greens are one of the best, not to slow, not to fast. The staff was excellent. I had to leave after 9 holes, and the management gave me a 9 hole rain check. 3 nines here. All good. .

Great Experience

This course does customer service really well. Everything, from pulling up to the course security gate to walking into the club house, was ready which made checking in a great experience. Great driving range and an excellent track in very good shape. Would definitely play here again.

It's been better!

Fairway grass was very thin in a lot of areas. I was surprised that there were a lot of wet areas also since it doesn't seem like we have had a lot of rain recently. Tee boxes were so-so and the greens had a lot of crab grass/ weeds starting. Probably being a little bit critical because I didn't play as well as I had hoped to?

Poor Management Decisions

I have played here 3 times in the last 3 months and given 4 or 5 stars but was truly disappointed today. They had 7 inches of rain in the last 3-4 days and the course should have been closed until it dried out. Despite Cary path only the course was completely wet. As I walked in the fairway I was sinking 2-3 inches trying not to make huge footprints that would ruin the course. Wound out only playing about 9 holes . Poor decision by management to keep it open.

Great Course - Egregious, Abusive, Stalking Starter

Course great, amenities are non existent really unless you’re a member (don’t worry the members will make CERTAIN you know you are on THEIR COURSE!) I (and the other 3 in my group) will all be writing personal letters to the course pro and the board recommending with EXTREME detail the level at how absolutely nasty, cruel, rude and belligerently expletives vocal about our 10 minute late start (MIND YOU HARDLY ANYONE WAS ONE ANY OF THE 3 COURSES) due to an individual with a continence issue and please keep in mind we finished 10 minutes early of the required 1.5 hour play time. I will be direct, if there was not 2 ladies and a 7 year old ride along child this may have gotten VERY ugly. I told the pro shop at the turn to keep this stalking starter away from my group of customers (new folks to the course from Ft Myers) to show them a nice course. To sum it up I wil NEVER EVER EVER play this course again. The starters and absolutely deer in the headlight young men in the pro shop had not even an apology. WITH MY EVERY BEGGING WORD UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE TREATED AND SPOKEN TO LIKE TRASH I suggest you take your hard earned money ANYWHERE BUT HERON CREEK. WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC AND EMBARRASSING OUTING TO TAKE MY BEST CUSTOMERS.

IF ANYONE wants to know more please message me as I am absolutely not letting this psycho get away with this at all.
