Another Great NJ Public Course

This was the first time playing Heron Glen. The conditions were wonderful. It is a very walkable course; you'll get a work-out, but it's very doable.
The layout is interesting and with the multiple tees, it was easy to select a set that was challenging without being punishing. I found it to be very woman friendly.
Definitely going to play it again!

Top 5 NJ public course

Course is in great shape. I played two rounds in 8 hours (4.5Hours/3.5Hours). Replay rate is $20, which was a steal. Great amenities: grass range, putting green. Great pro shop and food was good. Will be back.

Great Course

I am from Spokane. WA and saw this course on Golfnow special.
It had drenched by heavy rain for days. It was golf cart only. The Starter Mr. Gary paired me with a regular player, Mr. Kevin.
It was a very fun round with Mr. Kevin showing me the course layout and how to maneuver around the course!
This course is a definite to be played again when I am in Warminster again.

Heron Glen getting in shape for 2019

Heron Glen is one of my favorite courses in the SE PA/ Central NJ area. The course was in great shape for the time of year. As with every other course in the region, Heron Glen's greens were aerated. This made the greens slower but did not otherwise affect putting. Course provided a complimentary lunch (sandwich, chips, & drink) because of the aeration, which was a nice touch. Catching a Hot Deal only makes it a better experience.

Top Notch Public Course

I go out of my way to play different public courses throughout NJ; and I don't know how it took so long to play here.

It's just about as good a public course experience as you can have. Definitely a little on the pricey side, but totally worth it.

Pro shop, driving range, starter, pace of play, layout, conditions... they are all A+.

Some memorable holes, they test most facets of your game, and the greens are as true as you could hope for.
Definitely a top-20 public course in the state.

On a Warm Day Early February

Heron Glen does golf management justice! One of the warmest days in February 2019 with a thawing effect (expected cart path only ruling), and the course priced their tee times PERFECTLY!
Other surrounding courses priced as if it was a normal spring day!? The course was in decent shape, and I'm certain it will be to perfection once spring arrives, as always. NEW golf carts with USB ports have arrived. The clubhouse, with their exceptional staff, and new Pro Shop are a class act. I can't wait for the new season!

Wet but Playable

Played the days after 2 brutal days of rain. We were cart path only which is never great, but hooked up with 3 good guys and made a good day of it. The greens were very soft and receptive even if the fairways didn’t give you any roll. The greens rolled well and the leaves were only a problem on a couple holes.

Great job! I will be back!!

always a good time at heron glen

Very blustery during the entire round calling for supreme control on most all shots. This course has got to be one of the best tracks in this area. From tee to green ,not a blade of grass out of place. Also a great hot deal rate.

Gem

Can’t say it’s a hidden gem any more but this place is great. Rained overnight but the conditions were still great and the course drains well so we were allowed to go 90 deg. New upgrades make this place hard to book, so book early.

Very nice facility

Overall, this is a very nice facility. There's a grass range (can we upgrade from those yellow range rocks though?), a large putting green with plenty of different areas of slope.

Head pro was on the range for a TaylorMade fitting day and I chatted with him briefly - really nice guy and very knowledgeable when it comes to equipment.

The course is very fair - it's all right on front of you at Heron Glen. Most holes are framed nicely for a particular shot - and you'll be rewarded if you execute it. The main defense is the greens, which have some slope and speed. Several of the greens - 5, 8, and 16 come to mind - are quite large but divided into segments that makes the target play small depending on the pin location. 11 is a great short par 4, and 18 is a wonderful finishing hole. There is plenty of space to play golf here, and the course won't put up too much resistance from the whites or blues unless you are really wild off the tee. (Black tees look like a different story, as they will bring several forced carries and stretch out the par 3s, although I haven't played the tips.)

Course conditions are as close to a private country club as you will find. Greens roll quick and true, bunkers have the perfect amount of sand, and the fairways are smooth.
