About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 6976 yards
Slope 137
Rating 74.3

Heritage Isles is a scenic course that cut through native cypress heads and natural wetland areas. At 6,976 yards from the tips, it is one of the most demanding public golf courses in the Bay area. While water does come into play on all 18 holes the premium has been put on the short game. With large, meticulously maintained greens, those players who are handy on the putting surface should be able to shave a few strokes off their scores.

Great Course

Really enjoyed a lot about this course. It errs on the challenging side with a lot of water, but the greens and fairways were in great condition for most of the holes. A few bare patches here and there, but nothing to really make it awful.

A few of the bunkers had water in them, but that’s to be expected with how much rain we’ve had in the last week or two.

Great value, great course and just great overall experience, even with a tournament finishing just before our round making the pace of play a little slow.

Horrible Conditions

Course conditions were unplayable. Horrible drainage. Walked in mud most of time.. All traps were flooded.. Had to walk most of course because cart only on cart path. This is fine but it was 90's temperature. Upon arrival had a weird feeling of unwelcome.
Course is a bit overrated IMO.. Unsure if I'll be back..

Pleasant Course

Course in very good condition tee to green although some greens had bare spots around the edges. Greens rolled good but a bit slow from all the rain the day before. Bunkers had a lot of water in them and some balls were lost in the bunkers due to amount of water mixed with sand. Very good wide open layout. Had issue with the Starter rushing us of the first tee because he put another group right behind us and did not allow enough separation. The result was terrible rushed tee shots. Pro Shop associates very friendly and customer oriented. Would definitely play again.

Fun golf

Due to recent rains, the course was "Cart path only". This worked out fine but did slow pace of play a little. The course was in fine shape. The fairways were good and the greens rolled true. A few of the greens had dead sandy areas along small sections of borders. Most likely from fungus. The bad patches were small and only affected approx %5 of the greens. Several bunkers had standing water from recent rains, maybe 3 or 4 greenside bunkers. Not bad for our rainy season. The staff were excellent. They were helpful and quick. This course was worth the price and only 30 min. from Downtown Tampa. The grill had really good food. The wait staff were on point.

Surprisingly dry

Amid all the rain in Tampa, Heritage Isles has drained well. Cart path only with a few wet spots but overall very playable. Greens run fine.

Great Value and Great Layout

Loved this course. Can’t beat the price and value of this course considering how well maintained it is. Offered challenges from the blue tees for all levels of golfers. Greens were true and course was clean. I just wish the gator on hole 7 hadn’t cost me two strokes because it would t move so I could get my ball. Fun round nevertheless.

Worlds slowest round of golf

Had a very long day trying to play 18 here on Sunday. The pace of play was so slow we had to call it quits after 9 holes even though we booked the whole day.

Marshall was aware of how slow it was playing and didn’t do anything to remediate the issue.

Was excited to play here as it looked nice but I can’t say the price point was worth the wait. Will not be back any time soon.
