Much of the attention focused on The Heritage concentrates on the Seve Ballesteros connection (and design). It is little wonder. The enigmatic Seve still conjures up all that is enthralling about the game of golf. And plenty of that can be found at The Heritage, too.
The course opened in 2004, and golfers are met first by the statue of the great man and then the stylish clubhouse. It is worth heading up to the balcony and looking out over the stunning lake which separates the 9th and 18th – two of the best holes on the course, both ending underneath the clubhouse.
The course is laced with water but it is only one of the challenges you’ll face on a course that flows over the gently shaped, open Co. Laois countryside. There is dramatic and complex bunkering throughout and it defines many holes.
There’s a lazy, lilting rhythm but it is long. Excellent facilities, with a hotel also alongside.
Favourite Hole: the par four 18th is such a strong finishing hole, curving gently left around the water, which threatens off the tee and on the approach.
What’s in the Bag? You’ll need to drive well for the whole day.
