Review of Heritage Ranch Golf & Country Club
Heritage Ranch Golf and Country club is located within a very nice adult community in Fairview. This Arthur Hills course was built in 2000 and meanders through gently rolling hills lined with homes or stately century old oaks and pecan trees.
The pro-shop is within a very impressive clubhouse with bar, restaurant, and a beautiful pool. The staff is friendly and attentive. This course is not going to disappoint you.
When we played the conditions (greens, fairways, and rough) were near perfect. The greens are true and the front nine greens seemed to have more undulation and slope and pin placement made some of them very challenging. A few of the greens are table top. if you hit and rolled off, you had a tough chip back up the hill. The fairways were rolling with berms, houses, and trees. The course is somewhat challenging due to some narrow approaches, berms, strategically placed bunkers and trees. To score well you need some good course management and accurate shot making.
Lakes with fountains, a beautiful par 3 with a natural spring stream and waterfall along the side, and scenic rolling hills make this course scenic as well as enjoyable to play.
Golfers of all skill levels should enjoy this course. It is a little pricey, but don't let that stop you making a tee time.
Rates: $59.00 to $78.00
Here's How Texas Outside Determines the Scorecard Rating
The Texas Outside rating scale ranges from 1 to 10 – a perfect 10 course would be something like this: links along a cliff overlooking the Pacific ocean and bordered by tall trees; lush fairways on rolling hills with lots of natural hazards; water (which is crystal clear) on most of the holes; immaculate greens (but they are undulating and tough); lots of variety and character (each hole is completely different and includes blind shots, elevation changes, doglegs, and significant challenges); perfectly manicured traps with the whitest and prettiest sand you’ve ever seen; a nice club house with great food and a 19th hole; a GPS; plenty of beverage carts or your own cooler and ice; and it only costs $40 bucks! What this means is that you probably won’t find any 10s in Texas – try Cabo San Lucas, Pebble Beach, or some of the Hawaii courses!
All of the above determines the overall score for the golf course. In other words, we like courses that are pretty, fun, very challenging with a lot of variety, and fairways and greens in excellent condition – all for $40. We also tend to play the courses that are affordable for the masses, which means in the $30 to $80 range. We rate hard and we haven’t found a 10 in Texas yet – don’t worry we haven’t given up and we’re still looking.
