Heathrow Legacy Country Club Getting a $3 Million Upgrade

by | May 25, 2024 | News

A pillar of the North Orlando community, Heathrow Legacy Country Club is installing $3 million worth of upgrades at its historic club.

Among the extensive renovations are 10 new covered and elegantly furnished TopTracer Range outdoor bays, as well as 18 new Champion Bermuda greens on the Garl Course. Significant golf course irrigation improvements, designed to enhance drainage and elevate course conditions to new heights, were also installed.

Heathrow Legacy has set a new standard in Central Florida by becoming the first private facility to feature the exclusive TopTracer Range. This cutting-edge technology, renowned as the No. 1 rated range technology, revolutionizes the traditional driving range experience. It offers instant feedback on ball speed, trajectory, distance, and more, allowing golfers of all levels to engage in interactive games and practice sessions with precise data on performance.

Heathrow Legacy is a testament to the rich history of golf, with two clubhouses located just two miles apart. The 36 holes of golf, designed by renowned namesake designers Ron Garl (Garl Course) and Tom Fazio (Fazio Course), pay homage to their exceptional contributions to the sport. The Heathrow Clubhouse has undergone renovations to the bar, patio, fixtures, and HVAC, while the Legacy Clubhouse is set to undergo a complete remodel of the lobby, boardroom, bar, and dining space, including new fixtures, flooring, furniture, and decor.

Heathrow Legacy members enjoy exclusive access to The Racquet Club, a sprawling tennis and fitness facility on site. This summer, the club will further enhance its offerings with the addition of six new pickleball courts. The 13-court tennis facility has hosted tennis legends such as Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Jimmy Connors, and Billie Jean King. Additionally, a new pool deck has recently been installed, offering a refreshing spot for relaxation and leisure.

Heathrow Legacy was the first club owned by Concert Golf Partners, a boutique owner-operator of 33 upscale private golf and country clubs nationwide. Concert’s national headquarters are located along the Garl Course. Concert consistently makes annual capital investments in its clubs. The upgrades enhance amenities, service levels, and the overall member experience while building and maintaining a thriving club environment.

“This multi-million dollar investment in Heathrow Legacy is part of the ongoing commitment by Concert Golf Partners to continually reinvest in our properties each year as we preserve and enhance our private clubs for our members nationwide,” said Concert Golf Senior Vice President of Operations Aaron Straub. “The renovations at Heathrow Legacy, including the installation of TopTracer Range and pristine Champion Bermuda greens, have further elevated the upscale amenities available at this iconic club.”

Certified as an Audubon International Signature Certified Sanctuary golf course, Fazio Course architect Tom Fazio has praised it as one of his best efforts. The 7,160-yard par 72 course carries a 74.5 rating and 132 slope carved around a dense forest of lush, mature trees with spectacular topography, dramatic slopes, rises and knolls unique to Florida. Hole No. 12 is known as the “Tiger Trap,” as Tiger Woods once appeared out of the surrounding forest to challenge golfers to a closest-to-the-pin contest in a famous Buick TV commercial.

The clubs also offer indoor and outdoor dining year-round, in-house sitter care for kids and a variety of events and classes.
