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.

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.

First Time at Course

Blue Heron is on a list I have of golf courses I wan to play in NJ. Only 1 hour away and easy to get to, I would go back to play this course again. Staff was excellent and friendly, paired me up with another golfer and a twosome who where "members". Had a good time.

Blue Heron

This is one of my Favorite Courses to play. It is great shape everytime we've been there. We teed off at 7:30 + I didn't even see a divot that hadn't been filled in. What a pleasure to play here. The greens roll true + it helped me shot a 77 this time down there. I'll be back!
