Blue Heron Pines Golf Club
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.

Getting better as Work is in progress ..
Played on December 26th 9am. Two days after snow and heavy rain. The wind is hauling as regular. The course was wet but in great shape for winter condition for CT.
Tony Roberto is the man in charge, PGA pro who’s given the task to rescue this degrading course. He is taken, still taking care over grown trees and roots which has caused damage to the fairways and green. They also had provide unnecessary shade to the greens. There is plenty of urgent work completed. But Tony has long path including renovating the club house. The new white sand in traps are in, the grass growing looks healthier and the course has been in better shape then in 10 years. The only part is the wood chips are spread out some courses but that’s understandable when course is getting over hauled The local golfers I played with, are already singing praise. The course design is interesting with elevation changes playing through ledges and hills. Elevation changes makes 160y plays to 190y and then hauling wind that affects the course.. all part of great design. Wind really affect Hole 6, 7, 9, 16, 17 and 18. 7 and 9 reminded me old course which shares greens. Another great move was taking down trees on 18th to risk reward 300yard dog leg left. Lot of work has been performed and lot more work is cut out for Tony. This time he has resources to make right renovation by summer 2022 to a completely new course. I think Tony is the right person to take on this challenge. I am very excited to play renovated course in summer of 2022.
Course was in great shape for end of November. Especially the greens. True and fast. Slow play on the back nine but that’s life at a semi public course nowadays.
Very enjoyable course
This was a a very nice course. Played in November and would play again. Only finished 14 holes, 35-45 mph winds and a 15 degree temperature drop made the conditions unreasonable.
nice round on perfect day
everything was great except pace of play on back nine
understandable as public course on sept like day in november
blue heron is always good golf at fair value
Had to cancel at course moved my tee time to accommodate a scramble was tottally ticked tee off had to intervene in matter did help me agent was great. ive never had this happen before really unacceptable
Tee times too close together
We were paired with another twosome, behind a foursome that were walking, and in front of carted twosome.
The forward group were slow and consequently we were constantly under barrage by the long hitters behind us.
Not the first time this situation occurred. In fact, this is the only course that I have played recently were a fight broke out from a similar situation.
The pre-game lunch was excellent.
Not that good
The Course is looking ruff ! They never redid the bunkers some fairways are eaten up and spotty . And Ron Originally said he would keep prices low ! They are not ! Very hard to get tee times especially for a single !!!
Hurry up and wait
The two foursomes in front of us were very slow. The foursome behind us continually hit up on us
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
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.
