Heron Bay Golf Club
This course certainly can't be anywhere to the shape it was when it hosted PGA events. Generally in very poor condition and certainly not worth the price. The greens were in horible condition. The sandtraps, well someone once told me you can tell alot about the pride of maintenance of a course by the condition of their traps. Their sandtraps, while numerous in size, were poorly maintainted. I doubt they have been edged in years and it looks like they don't bother to machine rake them ever. I have never seen so many green side bunkers that were the size of an average sized house with one maybe 2 rakes in them. As for Fairway bunkers, you were lucky if you found even one.
Like the title says, a very disapointing experience.

Boring Layout / Poor Conditions
Played with my father and we didn't have the best time. I would not pay the (discounted) $62 golf now fee to play here. Our biggest complaints were:
1. Layout - Each hole is very similar. Straight with bunkers. Water almost never comes into play. Very forgettable golf holes.
2. Conditions - I imagine the course used to be very nice since it used to host the Honda Classic. Unfortunately now though, the greens were the worst we have played on in the West Palm Beach / Ft. Lauderdale area.
Also, if you are uncomfortable getting out of sand this is not the course for you. There are many huge bunkers on every hole. (My Dad found 17 of them!)

Nice course, surprised at the condition of the greens
Well worth the afternoon rate of $24 but the greens were certainly disappointing. Friendly staff although at 3:30 pm I had no idea when it was my turn to head to the first tee as the starter was gone already. Lots of sand shots and a nice layout. It has been many years since i last played the course and the on cart GPS was very helpful. I'll be back at the right price.

Great Bang for the $$$
Staff was friendly and efficient and course was in great shape considering it's the end of our "busy" season

I was happy with Heron Bay
As a senior golfer the course is challenging yet very enjoyable to play. I was in a foursome with 2 younger "dudes" & a woman. We played from 3 different tees and we finished in 4 hours on a very windy morning.
