“Great 27 holes”

Heron Creek Golf Course
Ranked #3 of 12 things to do in North Port
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Played here often, do not get far off of the fairway, lots of bushes and hard to find the ball. Greens are undulated and can be tricky.

Truth be told, I live on this course in the winter, literally...along the fairway of Creek #1. However, I can still provide an objective view. There are three nines, and each is different. This is a true links course, with no parallel fairways. Arthur Hills is a bit diabolical with his design, but the track will provide you with lots of variety and a challenge to your supply of balls. Play the tees that fit your handicap, or you ill be in tears or pain or both after three holes. I've played on over 40 course in Florida and none is more interesting or has greater variety in holes. Peggy, a teaching pro there, is superb.
Go early and take advantage of a very complete practice area, and stay late for a drink an meal in the grill room. As noted by others, the tennis courts are also first-rate, and the teaching pro, Mike Smith could improve anyone's game,

From the heals, this course is a Bear!
Golfers will find it hard to play to their handicap on this magnificent 3 nine-hole beauty of a creatively designed course.
Personally I think it's one of the finest courses in the state of Florida...but then I'm a glutton for punishment. I Love a tough course.
Most courses have One hole that is called a "Signature" hole. I find multiple signature holes throughout my rounds at Heron Creek.

Beautiful grounds and club house. Moderate $$ price for lunch. Outside and inside eating areas. Food not consistent. Service the same. Give it a try. Recommend lunch to try. Not open every evening for dinner. Dinner is a little pricey.

Went for Sunday Buffet, was not inexpensive but the items, eggs Benedick, shrimp, carving station and Omelet station just to mention a few made the price well worth it
