Heritage Bluffs is a Dick Nugent championship design that plays to 7,106 yards, 138 slope from way back. It's located about 45 minutes south of Chicago near the intersection of I-55 and I-80. It's a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, and has good elevation change throughout. The layout is part open links style part parkland, with tree lined fairways. It's a challenging and interesting course with excellent conditioning, at a reasonable price. The landing areas off the tee are mostly open and forgiving and greens receptive in the front, mostly guarded by bunkers or water on the side. Bentgrass tee to green make for a good consistent lies, you just hate to take a divot they're so nice. The fairways are somewhat rolling and water is in play on 5 holes, and only about 50 sand bunkers on the course, with no real estate development in view.
