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.

Great course. Terrible clubhouse service.

Played here on Jan 2nd. Cart path only due to big rain the days before. Played with two members who were gracious and a pleasure. The course was in great shape. Winter greens so a little on the slow side. Went to the clubhouse for an after golf drink and snack. We were the only two at the bar and the bartender was too busy playing a game on his iPad to serve us in a timely manner. My wife actually said, "excuse me but when you are done with your game do you think I could get a drink?". Go for the golf....eat some place else.

This is a beautiful course with great greens. It is well managed and a pleasure to play. Only issue was the rate of play was quite slow and we just got our round in. The course was a bit of a issue with the leaves in the fairway. The ground crew does have a challenge with where to blow the leaves to. The greens were as perfect as it gets and rolled fast but true.

the course conditions were worse than my local municipal course.
