Heritage Golf Links
When new management eliminated the senior rate, we dropped the course from our list. After a years absence, and with a special promotion rate, we tried it again. Greens were in better shape than a year ago but challenging with no straight putts. Fairways and tees were in good shape. Balls can disappear in the rough so keep an eagle eye on your shots landing area. Staff is very accommodating and the facility is clean. Holes #5, #8, and #11 seem to play longer than the yardage so club up.

Avoid Monday GolfNow Deal...Too Crowded!
Heritage Links is great and tough track and is in great shape! However, I learned today that the GolfNow discount on Mondays is intended to be a money maker well above the comfort of an enjoyable round. Teetimes were separated at four minutes apart. No way one could complete 18 holes at that separation.The low-cost brought out a mix of very novice golfers to advanced in which made the pace of play absolutely horrible at four minute intervals. I will avoid at all costs on Mondays.

This course could be great but it is not managed well
i played at heritage many times before. I like the course and the challenging holes. The location is close to my house and comvenient to play at.
Having said that, the course is horribly managed. The pro shop was very unfriendly. We asked about renting some clubs the gentleman wasn't helpful at all. During the round we typically will play 18 holes in 4 hours, but not at this course. The marshal doesn't care if it takes you 5 plus hours to play. When we informed the Marshall/assistant pro of the slow play, they pretty much put the hands up and said that's just the way it is. On top of that they were squeezing in additional 4 somed onto both the back nines so that the play was even slower.
This might be the last time I play this course which is unfortunate.

Grown to Appreciate
Undoubtedly the best value for the quality of golf in the Atlanta area. The only way to find a course better than this is to drive 25 more minutes or more outside of Atlanta. If you are in Buckhead, Brookhaven, or anywhere in the city close to 85, this is hard to beat.

Sneaky long. Tough greens.
The course measures 6800 yards from the tips, 6400 yards from the middle and less than 6000 yards from the white tees but plays longer with forced carries from the tees and to the well guarded, undulated and fast greens. Room to drive the ball. The real fun begins with the approach shots and only gets better at the greens. Two very long, tough par 3's. Busy course.

Get on while it's good
Very nice, fast greens. A bit slow with groups but it moved along.

money over customer service
While this course is close to Atlanta proper and provides easy access---the management has decided to milk the customer for all they are worth---beware the players card they offer---last month of use is undefined and there is no extension of use as there is prior to your terminating the monthly charge. Sand traps are in dire need of work as are most of the tee boxes. volume has become the mantra---tee times are 8 minutes apart ---play can be slow and the Marshalls are no where to be found.

very nice course
Heritage is a great course that challenges every facet of your game. The uneven lies in the fairway makes you focus on just putting the club on the ball. The greens.....well if you ever want a little taste of what the pro's play on, this is definetly the place for that experience.
The counter (check-in) there seems to be a noticable difference in the welcoming of patrons, not exactly sure of why that is but is the disapointment of the whole experience. Each golfer playing this course deserves to be welcomed with excitement and appreciation and should not have to remind the reciepents of my$$$$ about amenteties provided with the booking.
Over all a great experience and would suggest this course to anyone that wants a challenge!!!!
