Heather Glen Golf Links has long been one of the area’s best and most popular courses, and after one visit to the Scottish-inspired, 27-hole property the reasons will be readily apparent.
Home of the Red, White and Blue nines, Heather Glen, which features links-style design elements, is a joy to play. For starters, Heather Glen is all about golf. Condos are visible on one hole, but otherwise, it’s just you and the course.
No matter the combination of nines, Heather Glen, which was voted best new course in America by Golf Digest in 1987, is a delight to play. While the fairways are tree-lined, their width means only the wildest of shots end up amongst the pines.
Conjuring up images of the Old Country, the primary hazards at Heather Glen are pot bunkers, most famously the Devil’s Mistress, a cavernous bunker that fronts the fourth green on the White nine. Players that avoid sand and have their iron game dialed in will have a chance to score well on the Clyde Johnston design.
