Rating 34.7

HeatherRidge Golf Course is a nine-hole course with all the challenges of a full-length course. It's an ideal round for when you don't have time to play 18 holes. Water has a prominent presence throughout thanks to a creek that winds through the entire course with tributaries that snake in and out of the holes and there are also ponds that come into play. You'll find water on a total of seven holes. There are a few other tricky spots to watch out for as well, including subtle breaks in the greens. Hitting straight is the key to scoring well and both accuracy and creative shot-making skills are needed. HeatherRidge G.C. has appeal for players of all skill levels and the affordable rates make it doubly appealing.

Terrible Service

I booked a tee time 2 weeks in advance. We arrived 30 minutes before tee time as well and were notified that we would only have 1 hour to play as they would need the golf carts for an outing. When asking why they wouldn't just cancel my reservation in advance or call me as I drove an hour, I was countered with a response of "if you're good enough it should only take you an hour to complete a 9 hole game". We proceeded to play anyway and made it to the 6th hole before we were kicked off the course and asked to return the golf carts. When asking for a refund we were given a voucher for another round but it had to be used on a weekday. . we were playing on a Saturday. Overall I would not recommend this place based on the customer service and for what they charge. There are other courses with better carts, greens, and customer service.

Quick 9 in nice condition

Course was in good condition. Pace of play not an issue as I was the first tee time on a Sunday. First tee looked very busy when I got back round!

I really enjoy the layout and I don’t think the slope rating really gives an accurate indication of the course. Lots of trouble in play and the greens can be very tricky.

Many better courses to play

Looked good online but when we arrived it was very disappointing: the staff was very disorganized and they said the whole day was running behind since early morning so clearly there is a time management issue. The staff did not have any interest on trying to inform us as to when our tee time would be adjusted to it was every man for themselves. There were groups of 5-6 playing ahead and it was pretty chaotic overall. You get what you pay for.

Family Round

We played a mid morning round. It was pretty warm and there were lots of golfers playing. The pace was a little slow but that was to be expected since there were so many folks playing. The course was in very good condition and nicely manicured. My family and I enjoyed our round very much.

Heatherridge - very Good Value

Heatherridge is a very good 9 hole course. The layout gives it a private course feel. The staff are always friendly and makes you want to come back.

Early Round

Golf course is consistently in good shape. Our round was early in the morning and the greens were very wet. Looked like they just had been watered so they were very slow but outside of that it was a very enjoyable round.

Love Heather Ridge

Heather Ridge has become a home course for us. The best thing is the people. Always friendly, always helpful and never pushy. We love it!! Afterwards we hang out and order burgers which are awesome. Wendy makes a mean burger and is a super nice lady. We always look forward to coming out on days she's working to support. Thank you Heather Ridge, please DON'T CHANGE.

Never got to play.

Golf shop wasn’t even open till after 8 when my tee time was for 7:52.

Should have been ahead of a big group that ended up before me waiting (of which they were grabbing my clubs in my bag in front of the clubhouse while I was on the putting green). Thoroughly irked about that specifically.

Just left before even going inside.

A great 9-hole course

This golf course is well maintained. I like the layout of course. The pace was good on Saturday morning. A few holes are challenging. I will play at this course again.
