Heathland Course at the Legends ResortThe par 71 Heathland course is one of designer Tom Doak’s earliest gems. It takes you back in time to when golf courses were created with an artistic touch and the natural contours of the land dictated the flow of the course.You’ll find holes reminiscent of familiar links, like St.Andrews, and lesser-known courses like Lahinch and Cruden Bay.
Windswept hills and deep-faced bunkers are just a few of the challenges that await each player. Enjoy a taste of the old world in the new world. Golf Digest rated Heathland 4.5 STARS and Golf Magazine rated it in the “Top 10 New Resort Courses in the World".
The par 71 Heathland Course, designed by Tom Doak, is a return to the grand "Old Country" traditions of the game. It has been distinctly molded in the image of the British Isles links courses, with holes reminiscent of familiar links like St. Andrews, and lesser known gems like Lahinch and Cruden Bay. Most of the holes are without high vegetation, providing a visual presentation like no other course in the area. The challenge and difficulty of this course comes primarily from the unobstructed breeze that wafts constantly over the course, and the strategically placed bunkers and lush, deep rough that closely border all fairways. Many of the greenside bunkers are deep and require creative shots to make an escape. Rated one of the "Top 10 New Resort Courses in the World" by GOLF Magazine in 1990, Heathland's design allows players of all ability levels to "step back in time."
