Heritage Harbor Golf & Country Club is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Lutz, Florida.
Heritage Harbor Golf & Country Club first opened for play in 1999. The course was a joint design collaboration of Jed Azinger & Gordon G. Lewis.
Heritage Harbor is a par-72, 6,898-yard course with four sets of tees and loads of water and marshes to cross.
#1 is a par-5 slight dogleg right that’s 556 yards from the back tees. Best to hit some range balls before you begin play.
#13 is a favorite because of the forced carry over a natural wetlands area needed on your second shot in order to reach the green. This is a par-4, 422-yard hole from the tips, 282 yards from the forward tees.
#14 is a demanding par-3. From the back tees, it’s 263 yards across a natural area that’s 100 yards wide and over a pond as well.
From the championship tees, it takes a 225-yard tee shot, to carry onto dry land in front of the green. Then you still have to cross a bunker to get to the putting surface. It’s the most memorable hole on the course. From the other sets of tees, this shot is less demanding – 131, 118 and 104 yards. But the back tees are there if you feel like getting out your big guns and maybe straining your back.
#18 is a scenic 373 yard par 4. To get to the green, you ride your cart over a marsh on one of the course’s many picturesque winding wooden bridges that carry you over the wet spots.
What you won’t find on this tract are houses crowding the fairways. There are only five holes out of 18 with housing on both sides. That’s unusual in Florida, but because of the wetlands here and the way the course was designed, many of these areas will have no building on them at all.
From the gold tees, Heritage Harbor is 6,898 yards long (rating/slope, 73.5/129); from the blue tees, the course is 6,053 yards long (rating/slope, 69.4/117); from the white tees, the course is 5,437 yards in length (66.9/109); from the red tees the distance is 4,773 yards (68.2/116).
