There are plenty of other great golf amenities here at Heritage Isles. Indulge in one or all that we have to offer and improve your game to new heights, I mean low scores.
The practice facilities have been expanded, bringing several benefits to golfers working on their game.
The Driving Range: The only public range for about 15 miles around, now can accommodate 50 golfers, twice its previous capacity. It’s ideal for working on your skills, either before or after a round, or simply hit a bucket on your down time.
The chipping and putting greens: Both greens have also been renovated with new sod. The “short game” is especially important at Heritage Isles, where bunkers, water and marshland hazards will challenge you. Water is also a factor on almost every hole.
The putting green at the practice range has the same manicured grass you will find on the course. This helps gauge your shot speed and trim strokes from your score!
The course is better than ever, thanks to over-seeding, improved greens, new sod and other enhancements that make Heritage Isles Golf & Country Club a must play this winter.
Tee shots will roll farther now as the new grass provides a smoother surface. The over-seeding, an annual event for many Southern golf courses, filled in bare spots and offers better play as well as a cleaner, greener appearance. The roll speed is now at a 10, ideal for a public course, says Director of Golf Bob Cunningham. It had been about a 6; PGA Tour events usually have a green speed of 11-12, although the Masters and a few others play even faster.
Fun fact: The device used to measure the speed of a golf course putting green was invented in 1935 by Edward S, Stimpson, not so creatively calling his new invention The Stimpmeter. USGA first used this device at the 1976 US Open in Atlanta.
Back to Heritage Isles…. Remember to take time out from your game to enjoy your beautiful Tampa Bay surroundings. Our course includes eye-opening vistas — ponds, cypress trees, preserved natural wetlands and indigenous wildlife.
