Heron Creek Golf and Country Club Real Estate

Heron Creek Country Club

Even the Heron Creek name creates stirring images of the beauty of nature. Graceful, snowy white birds, soaring languidly against the backdrop of a brilliant blue sky, or wading in the gently rippling lakes brings a sense of calm. This is the Heron Creek Golf & Country Club in North Port, where soaring pines and lush palms of all types surround this stately gated golf course community, and where the work of nature is enhanced as well as preserved.

Enter the heart of Heron Creek to a cutting edge community where living well comes naturally. Heron Creek is a painstakingly crafted, master planned golf community, where all details are examined meticulously to insure nothing critical is omitted. Resting within the communities 676 acres, the builders have created an abundance of venues to reside, play, and just relax and enjoy Southwest Florida at its natural best.

The 21,000 square foot clubhouse graciously features the pro shop where the latest in club fashions and equipment can be found. The Creekside Café, Heron's Roost, and the elegant Top of the Green restaurants are available for everything from light fare to fine banquet dining. The state of the art fitness center inside the clubhouse that includes a men’s and women’s sauna with locker facilities, rounds out the clubhouse amenities. Just outside, the resort style swimming pool with spa and the tennis center with its 5 lighted Har-Tru tennis courts beckon.  

Heron Creek Golf Course

Winding lazily through the community, the golf course at Heron Creek provides a lush backdrop for the opulent neighborhood homes. This 27 hole, championship length golf course presents much more than stunning natural vistas. Designed by legendary golf course architect Arthur Hills, Heron Creek's was created to delight and challenge golfers of every skill level.

The challenging black tees offer the ultimate golf challenge to the experienced duffer, but with 4 other sets of tees, every golfer, despite their skill level, will enjoy the tests offered here. There are more than enough water hazards to frustrate or please depending upon your style of game. What creates the diversity of this course is its topography. Elevations, some almost 80 feet above sea level, are definitely mountainous type landscape for the generally flat Southwest Florida.
Heron Creek is comprised of 3, nine hole layouts so players can select the combination that best fits their skill sets. The 9 holes at each course feature their own unique character and sets of challenges. The Oaks 9 weaves through deeply wooded landscape, where “The Hill” and its numerous water features create interest as well as beauty. The Par 4 Oaks No. 2 is the signature hole and boasts water features at both the tee and the green with gigantic oak trees closely bordering the verdant fairway. The Marsh 9, as it’s appropriately named, meanders through marshes, wetlands, and nature preserves while the recently created Creek 9 course winds along the Myakkahatchee Creek and the expansive preserve area that adjoins it.

Since buyers were able to choose their own developer approved builders, the resale inventory will feature a large variety of individual upgrades that are reflected in the price. However, Heron Creek is still an affordable community and most lots are spacious with fabulous views.

Seven highly successful builders have opened their beautifully appointed models to help buyers make informed selections.
