Course Reviews

Heritage Bluffs is a very scenic course for Illinois with rolling hills and lots of trees. there is a great variety of types of holes on this course with some having tree lined fairways and others more links style. the course in general is a good challenge and will prove difficult for even low to mid handicappers. Maintenance is pretty good, yet i would say that it is one of the aspects that is a little lacking (although it is really good for a municipal course). Also, most rounds will take 4.5-5 hours.

A little pricey for the area but well maintained and challenging. A great overall course.

Fairly priced. Very challenging and long. Bring plenty of extra balls. The weather in the summer of 2010 has damaged several fairways here like many of the other nearby courses. Not in as good of shape as it usually is this year.

I would not say this course is walking friendly, nor would I recommend this course for seniors who may have a little trouble walking, even with a cart. Conveniently located From I 80 and I 55. One of Nugent's better designs. A lot of variety in the holes, links style, and narrow tree lined fairways. 4 sets T boxes are generously laid out to give a good challenge to all skill levels.

Played this course late in the year, so no bev cart service. Water stations every 3rd hole or so.

My only complaints with the course were the yardage markings were hard to find on the fairways at times. 150, 200 yd markers not visible above the ground, such as a flag along the side or in the middle. A couple of the par 4 holes were roped off cart path only. This really slowed play down.

The course looked nice but I wouldn't know. We pulled into the parking lot and saw 22 people (5 foursomes and a twosome) waiting for the tee box. We went in and asked and we were told to expect a 6 hr round. WE LEFT!! So, I would say do not go there on a weekend. The course did appear to be in good shape.

everything you could ask for and more....great holes all the way thru....nice people also

Course is in very nice shape. Excellent pace of play even on a Sunday afternoon.....

Outstanding course in Channahon. Very well maintained, great staff and good food. The greens aren't too fast, and the course is very challenging. I recommend this course to anyone, it's well worth the drive.

Awsome golf course.This course has everything you want out of a golf course.take the ride and play this one.

From a ball

Great scenic course with fair challenges. Some long Par 4s keep this course challenging as well as some shorter holes that really make you think. Better make hay on the relatively benign Par 3s or your score will sneak up the charts.

GREAT value a stone's throw from Chicago...really worth the drive to play this hidden gem for under $50...and please, please get off your butts and enjoy the walk!

Memorable holes

This is a very nice, scenic course. I think it's also a great value. It has 3 or 4 amazing holes. The course is built on a large hill that was partially a mature forest. There is a lot of mature vegetation and trees.

I've golfed here a couple of times. It's very busy on the weekends, so I suggest going during the week.
