About

Par 72
Length 6810
Slope 133
Rating 72.2
Type Public
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.

Another quality golf course by Ron Jaworski

Fun course to play. Nice layout, not too difficult. Greens were shaggy and sandy from top dressing still obvious. There has been a lot of rain lately and this is the first time I’ve seen the greens that slow. Must be the weather. Tee boxes and fairways were good to very good. I play here a few times a year and enjoy it. Clubhouse nice with shower facilities. The bar / restaurant had very good food for a fair price. Great place to eat. Outdoor seating available. All the employees were pleasant throughout the day. Thank you.

Bunker issues

The course was in great shape except for the bunkers, they need to make improvements here. Very little sand, mostly packed dirt and stones. Extremely tough to play from.

Solid value and a great staff

This is a regular stop during the summer at the Jersey shore. Course is fair and always in good shape. The staff is professional and also accomodating. I play here about 6 rounds a year and it is by far a superior value in the Atlantic City area.
