Rating 72.2

The Blue Heron Pines Golf Club consists of two award-winning courses called the East and the West. Located 15 minutes outside of Atlantic City, these public golf courses provide a challenging game and have been touted by many New Jersey publications as the best 18-hole course on the Jersey Shore.

Each golf course had a different designer so they do have some differences. The West Course is relatively flat with narrow fairways and fast greens. Water hazards also come into play on seven holes. The East Course on the other hand features wide fairways and difficult bunkers. The East Course also follows a links-style layout and is meant to be played fast and firm. For those who want to play the courses but aren't at the top of their game yet, the club offers golf instruction.

Facility is obviously catering to weddings and events.
Course used to be great but for the money it is not worth it.
Course needs some TLC

Decent course

Course was ok considering rain the night before. The problem I had is they allowed no coolers which was ok but we asked if there was a beverage cart and they said yes and would be around with water as well as the ranger would have water. We didn’t see the cart girl until hole 16 and the ranger didn’t offer any water although he was around a lot and kept the play going. The front nine greens were bumpy but back nine were in good shape.

Crouse was in great shape, very nice Sunday afternoon.

Course was in great shape. We got out right before a tournament, so ranger was "nicely" pushing a little, but it all in all it was a beautiful day and we had a great time.
