After most of us have been stuck indoors for the past few months, a breath of fresh air and the beautiful Florida weather sounds like something that we all need. What is a better way to spend the day outdoors than golfing?
Heritage Harbor Golf and Country Club is an 11,000 square-foot property that provides an assortment of resort style amenities and a 6,900 yard par-72 golf course with four sets of tees, a total of 18 holes and breathtaking scenery.
During this very stressful pandemic, the Heritage Harbor Golf Course is still currently open to the public while staff members enforce social distancing guidelines. Only one person is permitted in each golf cart unless it is occupied by residents of the same household. Carts are disinfected after every round and cups are placed inside the golf holes to prevent the ball from going too far into the ground and other people from spreading germs from touching the holes. Everyone is free to have a fun, safe and COVID19 free game of golf! Golfers of all levels are allowed to play on the course.
“It’s a golf course that has four sets of tees meaning there are yardages for beginners up to advanced players.” said Pro Shop Manager John Panno. “The yardages are set up for the single-digit handicap golfers or could also be set up for people who are just learning the game.”
For those who are interested in improving their techniques, Heritage Harbor offers monthly free clinics for both children and adults. The classes are about 45 minutes offered on one Saturday each month. The free monthly adult clinic is a separate class from the free monthly junior clinic, therefore if you’re interested, please be sure to contact Heritage Harbor on the specific dates for these classes. For those who desire something more private, Heritage Harbor also offers individual golf lessons. For more information on this, please check their website or call for details.
The golf course is available to everyone from residents of the community to visitors, however the numerous amenities such as the restaurant, swimming pool, tennis courts, gym and many others are only permitted to residents of the community.
Heritage Harbor is located at 19502 Heritage Harbor Parkway, Lutz, Florida, 33558. For more information about classes, tournaments, and other special events, check out their website at www.heritageharborgolf.com or call them at (813) 949- 4886.
