As the former host of the PGA TOUR Honda Classic, Heron Bay Golf Club is identified as “Top Ten Places To Play” by Golf Magazine. World champions Stuart Appleby, Mark Calcavecchia, Vijay Singh, Dudley Hart, Jesper Parnevik and Matt Kuchar called Heron their home for six exciting years since 1997. The three 18-holes golf vacation destination that is proud of its championship course is open for daily operations. With approximately 100 bunkers, middling sized greens and five tees of different lengths, this golf club extends about 7,268 to 4,950 yards.
Standing at the final Royal Palm of the avenue at Heron Bay Golf Club is an Addison-Mizner style clubhouse that welcomes guests in a sophisticated lobby with a coral stone fireplace as centerpiece. A gallery of trophies and other facilities like locker rooms separate for men and women are present together with a service grille. Before diving into the thrill of a golf trip, golfers can also prepare at the multi-tiered practice location with complete practice balls, target greens that replicate the actual ground and an area for a short game.
Ten-time PGA Tour winner and acclaimed golf architect, Mark McCumber, used his experienced and structural standards to build the topical and natural atmosphere of this course. Instead of tiers and mounding which other golf courses have, subtle configurations are what Heron Bay Golf Club showcases. Forced carries are not present on the layout, making it friendly to all golfers especially those who have less experienced on the field. Adjacent to Heron is the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel and Convention Center making the location more inviting for stay-and-play golf vacation packages.
