One of my favorites - always in great condition and excellent staff. A good walking course except for one spot - on the back nine where there is a steep hill after the par 3 13th - however there is a bench at the top. Now to the eagle at 17th. Its not on my score card, its an actual eagle nesting at the top of mature white pine just off the green on the right side. I attached a photo but have to expand it to see the outline.

I have been a member at Heron Point for 20 years for one simple reason. It is possibly the best layout ,using the natural terrain, there is. The view from No. 8 tee rivals anything out there. Although the course has been modified from it's original design to make it easier for novice or occasional players, it is by no means an easy course.
No 2 holes are alike and it is not a "grip it and rip it" course. If you do that you will have a very long day.
If you find the rough take your medicine and get out to the closest point on the fairway. This is not a modern style course where you can take a 3 metal from 20 feet off the fairway. If you find the fescue, good luck.
The only bad point on the course are the bunkers. Usually hard packed they let the course down.
If you are senior or cannot carry 225 off the tee consider using the green tees on 9 & 18. The carry over the lake is difficult - especially into the wind.

Heard a lot about the course and was excited to play it.

Felt the course was challenging and I think you need to play it a few times to figure it out. Watch out for the rough! Impossible to get out of.

We didn't have great weather and so I'd like to try it again at some point. Club house and facilities are nothing special at all. Course seemed to be in good conditions.
