First of all, Heron Bay is no longer a TPC course....nor should it be. Fifty dollars for a Saturday 1:00 tee time. Here's what we got. There were not enough golf carts to get us out on time. We got out 30 minutes after the scheduled time. The strap holding the golf bag secure to the cart was broken. I... More

First hole, two huge gravel sand pits (some play these as waste bunkers, given that few were raked. an honest mistake given the sand/gravel mix) with a 10 yard landing area between them 190-230 yards out, next shot to a green with two huge silt sand (totally different sand than the fairways pits) greens beside it. Repeat 17 more times,... More

Wide open course with 92 traps strategically placed. Course management is critical to play. Sometimes, the strategy is to decide which trap you most want to avoid, because anything other than a controlled shot will inevitably be in a trap.

This course use to have the Honda Classic Tour event here but you would not be able to tell with the condition of the course at the moment. I did not see one maintenance worker on the course and it showed. Bunkers very bad, greens sandy and damaged. There are so many better courses that are in excellent playing shape... More

The new owners are Canadian and part of the club link properties. They offer multiple memberships with access to Palm Aire, Woodlands CC, and Eagle Trace CC. These are all in much better condition then Heron Bay. It's a shame they can't get the greens in shape or the fairways with better quality grass. The course is challenging enough and... More

I am an avid golfer that enjoys a nice, well maintianed golf course that plays 2-3 days a week. This course may have been the worst course I have ever played! The pro shop had minimal inventory and looked like they were going out of business and the same thing applied when I got to the practice range and the... More

Great golf course that I would recommend to anyone. However, your bunker play had better be on the mark - this place has more sand traps than just about any other golf course in South Florida!
