Heritage Club was established in 1996 by co-developers Ken Campbell and Robert Rhein who were also developing the surrounding community.  The Club was designed for golfers to enjoy playing golf at a moments notice; the Equity Membership capacity of 295 was set to allow Members to play without tee times. In 2003, the Club was turned over from the developers to the membership and today the Club remains member-owned.  

The P.B.
