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.

Gotta try it

First time here. Booked a twilight game to try out and will definitely be coming back to get a full 18 in.

Great coarse layout. Very playable yet challenging at the same time; the way the bunkers and water was laid out made it a lot of fun here.

A great round of golf

Totally enjoyed the golf course. The conditions were excellent, tee boxes, fairways and green were in great shape. Played 18 in just under 4 hours. Would recommend this course anytime. A very scenic course with lots of interesting wildlife.

Amazing course

This was a very fun course and I am glad I had the chance to play at blue heron pines. It was a little challenging but not impossible for the average golfer. I would definitely like to go back and play more rounds
