Designed by former Nicklaus Design associate Doug Beach, the 18-hole layout at Heritage Hill Golf Club opened for play in 2007. Constructed with zoysia tees and fairways and bent grass greens, it’s a course that was built to exacting agronomical standards.
Situated at the base of Kentucky’s Knobs Region, less than half an hour’s drive south of downtown Louisville, the fairways are laid out in a beautifully scenic area, with holes routed across a mix of open and wooded terrain on a rolling landscape.
Salt River comes into play early in the round, skirting the left side of the holes from the par three 2nd until the par three 5th. The routing then turns away from the river, arriving back next to the clubhouse at the par five 9th hole.
The course was originally planned as part of a large housing development but low density residential components only feature on the back nine. A great closing sequence of three holes culminates in the tee shot on the 18th dropping 75 feet down to a fairway that veers slightly left to the home green.
Interesting course, it combines a parkland look and feel along with several holes that meander through heavily wooded areas. I spent way too much time in the bunkers, but they were well maintained and consistent. An excellent value and as an added plus conveniently located near the interstate
