The website describes Heritage Wake Forest this way:  “Heritage Wake Forest is one of the Triangle’s premier golf and modern lifestyle communities. Located near vibrant downtown Wake Forest, with its historic homes on tree-lined streets, is Heritage Wake Forest. What was once the Marshall-Stroud Dairy Farm is now a golfer’s heaven. The Award winning par-72, 6,929-yard Heritage Golf Course spreads out over 200 acres of beautiful rolling hills and features more than 100 strategically placed pot bunkers, three holes that play along winding creeks, and six holes where natural lakes come into play.”
