Heritage Shores - Delaware - USA

Heritage Shores Golf Club was built during 2007 as accompaniment for a retirement community in southern Delaware. Arthur Hills demonstrated his respect for the golfers in his age range: The course measures more than 7,000 yards from the back tees.

Not only is there length, but there are plentiful hazards to be had. Ponds feature on almost every hole, much like the architect’s several designs a little to the south, in Ocean City, Maryland. Avoiding some of these hazards is as simple as making good contact on the ball, but a handful feature intimidating splashdown opportunities right next to the green.

The closing hole is a daring endeavor even for the young tigers; at 530 yards, a big hitter may consider going for the green, but that will require reckoning with a lake that lives along the left for the second half of the hole, and a small inlet requires a forced carry to get home in two.

One thing players will not need to worry about: trees. This course is plenty open, so feel free to wander a bit from the center of the fairway. As long as there isn’t a lake, of course.

Reviews for Heritage Shores

Average Reviewers Score:
Description: Unveiled in 2007, the 18-hole layout at the Heritage Shores Club is an Arthur Hills design, where water flanks many of the fairways. Fortunately, golfers need to be way off line for these aquatic hazards to come into play. Rating: 4 out of 10 Reviews: 1

The southern portion of Delaware is reminiscent of what one generally sees in Florida. Dead flat terrain with little in term of natural features that standout.

The golf course was created as a retirement community which means a plethora of housing was added. The net result? The places where the housing is not in view actually provide a few holes that have some character.

Yes, the length can stretch to 7,000+ yards but the redundant nature of the non-descript acreage will likely induce sleep even for the most dedicated insomniac.
