Par 70
Length 6106 yards
Slope 124
Rating 70.2

The golf course at Heather Ridge provides not only a good game but also spectacular views overlooking the Rocky Mountains. The former private, 18-hole course is 6,106 yards at its longest tees and plays to a par of 70. Renowned golf course designer Richard Phelps designed the course, which opened in 1972. The small greens are undulating and extremely sloped. The course also features narrow fairways and water hazards. The most difficult hole on the Heather Ridge Golf Course is the 10th hole, which is a par-5 that covers 506 yards.

A Good Course, Not for Me

This course has well maintained but small greens. They roll really fast and are true. The fairways were well maintained and relatively flat. However, this course is visually tight and can cause some distress if you are concerned about hitting houses. It is short enough you could play it without hitting a driver on most holes. If you like a game of golf that requires thought, good shot placement, and does not reward "grip it and rip it" golf, then it is for you. I need a bit more space to feel comfortable swinging freely.

$30 Rider Fee??

We had 3 riders and a walker in our foursome, and the single rider had his girlfriend ride around with him. When we made the turn the staff flagged them down and made him pay $30 to finish the round if she was going to ride. Really? She never even got out of the cart, and it seemed very unnecessary and I won’t play the course again.

Very Good Course!

This course is very enjoyable to play. Its layout is excellent, and it is well maintained. Be aware that it's a par 70 course, with only one par-5 on each of the front and back nine. The par 4 holes have various challenges that require sound strategies to score well. I highly recommend the course.

Horrible customer service.

I paid for my round on Golf now ($12) and upon arrival I was told I could not have some one ride along with me in the cart unless I paid $40 for the rider fee, which to me makes no sense being that I paid $12 for my self to golf including my cart fee. Why would I pay an additional $40 for a buddy to ride along if he’s not playing and I’ve already paid for the cart? The fellow at the front counter was not accommodating at all, instead of offering a different tee time so I can come back by my self he told me it’s tough luck and at least it was only $12. That’s not how you get people to come back to play. I personally will never return.

ADub92,
Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of your experience at Heather Ridge. Your time and feedback is appreciated.
It appears you bought a $12 hot deal from GolfNow. Hot Deals are sold and collected directly from GolfNow. Great Deal!!
It is customary to charge for any ride alongs/non golfing guests. Our charge is $30/non golfing guest. It is recommended that a golfer contact the golf course prior to the round to inquire if guests are allowed and what the cost may be.
We wish you well in your golf endeavors and hope to once again have you as a customer in the future.

Warming up to this course...

Gotta keep the shots in front of you... and locals who live on the course WILL let you know if and when you get too close to their property lines... had a guy walking his dog on #11 and took a player's ball that trickled into OB by about a yard... he flat out put the ball in his pocket and walked away. We yelled out to him and he just kept walking... he must live on the next hole because there were six balls left in the middle of the early fairway... Getting back to golf is saying something here but we did and I kept my round going to shoot Even so I was happy about that.

Great track - full price with recently aerated greens

Great track. Pace was a little slow but not bad. Just steer clear of this after aeration, they don’t tell you it’s been done and the rates are full price.

When the greens are in good shape this would be a fun course to play
