HeronGlen Great Course

Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Course CB is in great shape. Tremendous value for a great course. It was one of those days where the temperature was 95+. Ranger came a round with towels soaked in ice every 4 or 5 holes.

A GEM in the dreaded public golf community

From the moment you pull up, you get the exclusive, private club feel. Then the practice facility blows away expectations, with a putting/chipping green that is like I was at a tour event. Now to the course, impeccably kept, lush tee boxes and fairways that consist of very very very well watered and maintained bent grass. Played the blacks (I’m a +2 handicap) at almost 7100 yards and about another 1000 yards of wind as the course sit high on an elevated terrain that overlooks gorgeous scenery of western New Jersey. Left with a 1 over 73 which early could have been in the mid 60’s as I took 4 penalty shots after hitting the screws on three drives that ended up going way further than expected and into hazard areas that cross several fairways. I will be back. Coming for the course record.

Great staff, fun day, course needs some water

Great day, love playing here. But course needs some water. Greens running a bit on the slow side compared to usual but can be expected with this dry weather. Don’t want to lose the greens.

Expectations met

First time playing HG this year. It’s always been one of our favorite courses, but it’s difficult to get a tee which speaks to the quality of the course. Fairways were in excellent shape as were the greens.
Our 3 some was behind a 4 some, which included one walker, so there was some waiting .
