Heritage Bluffs is located about 45 minutes south of Chicago near the intersection of I-55 and I-80.
The golf course is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary with moderate elevation change throughout and a mix of links and parkland style holes. The landing areas off the tee are open and forgiving, the greens receptive in the front yet guarded by bunkers or water on the side. The fairways are somewhat rolling, there's water in play on 5 holes and only 50 sand bunkers on the course without homes or development along the holes. It's a Dick Nugent design that plays to 7,171 yards, 74.1/138, course/slope ratings from the tips, and three shorter tees.
