Course layout is not good. Barely any flat fairways and greens are extremely unpredictable. Pace of play was bad as well. It took 6 hours to finish a round. On top of it all they have mostly teenagers for employees in the clubhouse and on the course. So I’m not surprised my cart ran out of gas at the beginning of the back nine. On the way out the manager took my email and said he would send me a courtesy round or two. I never heard from him and it’s been 4 days now. I have no intentions of going back to play there.

Staff was very professional ,helpful and welcoming

Only problem was the course was wet resulting in cart paths and designated area only.

Asphalt Cart Paths need to be replaced lacking maintenance in all areas other than greens and fairways.

Had an enjoyable round...

The National is playing well. Bring your best game and you will have a good round. Doesn’t leave room for errors. Tricky greens overall a good value for a better player.

The new management has already made a big difference from the last owners. I enjoyed the new layout with the old #10 tee being the #1 tee. The new back nine is more enjoyable as it always was. I usually walk when I play but walking this course is not recommended. The staff is great and they are about to overhaul the cart paths soon. I will be back.

The new owner(s) are sinking $$$ into this course. New carts with GPS, new ball washers, fixed up the bunkers, took out some trees, trimmed others. It’s been another wet spring, course was cart paths only, fairways were pretty wet but in good shape. Greens were beautiful. I don’t know if this course was designed for older golfers (Heritage Hills was originally designed as a 55+ community) but the course has a lot of dog-legs and I rarely use my driver. It’s a great place to work on your irons though, and with the sloping fairways you need to be able to place your shots or you’ll lose a lot of balls as they roll into the woods. Definitely a better course than it was in the past.

It rained hard all morning and found a hot deal for $16. Can’t really beat that price anywhere. For the amount of rain in the morning, the course help up pretty well. The rain scared everyone away so the course was completely empty. Greens are always good (even after the rain). The layout is what always gets me. They have some nice holes, but on the other end have some holes that make you scratch your head. Par 5s have some hard doglegs not letting you use driver off the tee making it hard to score. Overall it’s a good course just won’t pay full price.

Weather was not cold to play golf. I played once at this course on early in this year. At that time course was nice shaped and perfect condition for playing. I heard that they gonna close course for this year after on Moday. Because they closed for this season, they did not clean leaves all around courses. It was hard time to find a golf ball. I lost so many balls while I played. Shape of course was remaining well for every player. By hot deal from Golf Now I paid less money the golf club required. If I paid more than $50, I might not play this golf club on fall season. It’s worthless. I enjoyed playing golf in almost empty course.

The course was in terrible shape. The fairways looked like they hadn’t been mowed in months, the grass was so long it was like hitting out of the rough. The course was also soaked, incredibly muddy, and did not dry up a time all during the round. The fairways were wet and muddy everywhere. The tee boxes we’re totally beaten up. The greens were the only part in decent shape.
