Heritage Hills: Claremore’s Favorite Golf Course

heritagehills“The game of golf is 90% mental and 10% mental.”

Heritage Hills is an 18-hole public golf course operating under the direction of the Rogers County Public Facilities Authority.

The project was conceived in the early 1970’s as a subdivision of Claremore Junior College, now known as Rogers State University. It was the first golf course ever built utilizing funding from the Farmers Home Administration.

In 1996, HHGC broke away from the University and the Rogers County Public Facilities Authority was born. The RCPFA is a public trust with board members appointed by the Commissioners of Rogers County. Heritage Hills is entirely self sufficient and receives no financial backing from any government agency. The project is legally recognized as a non-profit organization and any donations to HHGC are tax-deductible.

 

Heritage Hills opened for business on July 1, 1977. The layout was designed by Donald Sechrest of Tulsa. It is a challenging golf course that plays up to 6,750 yards with a course rating and slope of 72.7 & 129 respectively. The layout is dominated by a mixture of hilly and flat terrain. There are water hazards on 15 of 18 holes, but not all hazards are in play for most golfers. There are currently 35 sand bunkers and 4 grass bunkers. HHGC has a classic architecture that gives reward to well played golf shots. Misguided shots will often result in deep lies, sidehill terrain, and ample wooded areas. Fairways, tees, and surrounds are sodded with Bermuda, and greens are Penncross Bentgrass.
