Heather Gardens Reviews (3)

Average Rating for this Community
Date (Recent first)
Our condo, with views of nature, ducks, geese, other birds, deer, is our little sanctuary. We have two balconies overlooking golf course and fountains, are still breaktaking every day. We have been here almost four years and have enjoyed all the amenities. We like the staff and security. Thank you.
We have lived here for almost 8 years and wouldn't move anywhere else. It has everything we need at a very reasonable price. The golf course is the best! The par five is tough and the par fours challenging. But the par threes make the course a real golfers dream. It's easy to get on the greens, but getting off is hard.
Got a chance to visit this community today and it was highly impressive. I enjoyed the layout of the clubhouse and how it all attaches to the restaurant. There are so many people here out doing active things like swimming, walking, and golfing. Would highly recommend coming to see it.
