Great Blue Golf Course
The 6,615 yard Greenback Course opened in 1971 and has a milder and more flexible layout, featuring large and elevated greens. The parkland-style design incorporates trees, ponds and numerous bunkers.
The more challenging Great Blue Course, which debuted in 1992, better suits the skilled golfer. At 6,902 yards, the Great Blue Course is complete with narrow fairways that wind through Scottish-style mounds, small greens and risk-reward opportunities. Both courses at Heron Lakes are carefully maintained and have the reputation of being in the best condition of any public golf course in the area.
The award-winning Great Blue Course at Heron Lakes has hosted the 2000 U. S. Amateur Public Links Championship, a USGA event won by current PGA TOUR professional D.J. Trahan, and the annual Portland Invitational Tournament, among other tournaments.
In addition, Heron Lakes is home of The First Tee of Portland, which has as its mission to impact the lives of young people by providing educational and mentoring programs that incorporate life skills, character development, family values and personal growth through the game of golf.
