About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6810 yards
Slope 133
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 golf course!

Really enjoyed this course. Unfortunately had heavy rain the night before and was cart path only, which slowed up play, and they let 5 somes to play as well, which probably didn’t help either?? Someone on 4th hole, trying to sell golf vacations, not a fan of that. Everything else was great and staff really friendly!!

Tee Salesman?

Had a great round minus the 4th hole.
Some used car type salesman giving us a 3 minute pitch on golf vacations and magazine subscriptions in the tee box.
Not for a charity - for this guys profit.
Not appreciated by anyone - BHP can do better than that.

Pleasant Surprise

Great conditions! The course is challenging but recoverable. Tee blocks are nice and flat. The fairways are nice to hit from. Putting surface are true. I would definitely play this course over.

Great Course, Great Price

This course was in great shape and the pace of play was great. I say that even with a 30 minute delay to start the round. They where backed up a little bit but once you teed off you never waited again. The fairways were in great condition as well as the greens. Some of the par 4's were short but I still used driver to try and reach them. Cart girl came around a lot so you were never thirsty.
I gave a 4 star for staff friendliness only because the starter and one ranger could have been a little nicer. But the gentlemen behind the desk and the young kid doing the carts were great.
Overall great experience and would definitely play again.

Recently aerated, Needs a few more weeks.

Both the greens and fairways have been recently aerated and the fairways especially are not yet ready for prime time. That being said, it was a pretty enjoyable day with excellent pace of play and extremely friendly staff.
