“Disappointing day”

Heron Creek Golf Course
Ranked #3 of 12 things to do in North Port
Attraction details
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We played this course yesterday, two couples all with very decent handicaps. The ladies played off the reds and the men off the blues but this turned out to be a mistake. Pretty soon we were being encouraged by the marshall to play faster but we didn't realise that the groups behind were off the senior tees which made all the difference. Eventually we let a couple of groups through. In the UK this is the done thing and in off-season we imagined it would be OK here but the marshall wasn't happy. He made us skip the last two holes on the creek course and move forward to hole 1 of the marsh course. We could have added two more holes at the end but we didn't bother. It's a tough course and the fairways and greens weren't in great condition but on a quieter day we would probably have enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the oaks section was closed which may have caused the back up on the other two courses but, all things considered, I think we'll go back to enjoying the more relaxed play on some of the other great courses around Sarasota.

Great course three different nines. Harder than rating. Great for men or women golfers. Lots of wildlife on the course too!

Last minute, first tee of the day for $35. Played the course twice this past New Years. The course has a great lay out, there was no acreage spared. Electric golf carts were nice and quiet. Course was in good (not great) shape. In my opinion Riverwood was in better condition, but Heron Creek had the better lay out. The course has three 9s, we got to play all three over two rounds. Will be back, especially at this price.

Love to visit this golf course when I come to North Port Florida. Staff very helpful. Course is fun yet has some challenge to it.

A great course with lots of challenges. Not for a beginning golfer. A nice restaurant for lunch when you complete your 18 holes.
