First and last time at this golf course because of the poor conditions for the majority of the greens. Based on previous reviews before booking my tee time I questioned about the aeration and was assured the majority of the greens were in good shape. We were paired with another couple from N.J. who played this course many times and... More

Excellent golf course, all of our foursome would like to come back. We were told that green aeration had been a couple of weeks before, but for the condition of several, the price should have been discounted. Also, we showed up early to hit some balls, and the driving range is being totally re-done. Don't know whether that's on the... More

I had no idea until I showed up that they had stamped the greens. No discount was offered for the poor conditions. Call first and find out the green conditions before spending this kind of money!

We regret to hear about your experience. The atypical course conditions you experienced are a result of aerification; like all premier courses in the Southeast, Heron Point by Pete Dye aerifies at the beginning of each summer. It is a necessary maintenance procedure to sustain our championship course conditions the remainder of the year. It is a very short-term disruption... More

Great course be sure to check it out. Dye has created the definition of undulating greens on this course....lots of ups and down. Only disappointment about the course is a temporary one. Sea Pines is building a new fantastic club house for the heron point and ocean courses. Also, they are renovating the driving range. I am sure the new... More

This was a fun but challenging course for my golf level. Heron Point and the Ocean Course share a clubhouse and there is a new clubhouse being built now, so there is certainly alot of construction you have to navigate around to get out on the course. Also, the Ocean Course was being aerated and could not be played. I... More

We played this course in a driving rainstorm that cleared up after about 6 holes. Despite massive rainfall, the course drained incredibly well. This is a very nice second option after playing Harbour Town.

Once the new building is finished (February, 2014), the club house will just add to the elegance of Heron Point. The course, laced with lagoons and manageable sand traps, makes for a great round of golf.

What a great way to get to know the course we truly enjoyed the course and it is in great shape even in the off season. One of our favorites to play when we are in HHI

If the Ocean Course is crowded, play Heron. They have softened it up a bit. Not as hard as it used to be. A great golf experience
