Heritage Harbor Golf Course, located on Lutz Lake Fern Rd., is an 18-hole course featuring four sets of tees and multitudes of waters and marshes. This course is unique compared to others in Florida starting with the fact that it’s fully open to the public, continuing with this 6,900-yard course not crowded by houses with only five of eighteen holes having homes on both sides.
Stated on their website, HeritageHarborGolf.com, “It’s a paradise for birds as well as golfers.”
You’re likely to spot many birds including loons, hawks, ospreys, ibis, and herons as well as kingfishers. “It’s like playing two different courses,” says John Panno, Director of Golf. “On the front nine holes is a links style and on the back nine it’s a more shot-making course.”
Attend lessons with the club’s golf professional in groups or individually. Bring your children ages 5-16 to monthly golf clinics. This course, open since fall 1998, is more than just a course but also includes a pro shop and a beautiful clubhouse.
The clubhouse features a restaurant that can be used as a venue for events such as tournaments, weddings, religious events, and other parties of all kinds! Enjoy scenic views of waterways and wetlands or rooms with country-contemporary décor and furnishing. Seat up to 220 guests in the 11,000 square foot Heritage Harbor Club House with gulf coast plantation style and nautical feeling.
