On of the better courses in the area

I first discovered Blue Heron a few years ago, looking to branch out to some of the newer courses when visiting my in-laws. The course had just gone from private to semi-private and I could not be happier with the cost-per-play. The staff is friendly and if you're willing to travel a few extra minutes off away from the highways, the value is right up there with Ravenwood or Greystone (both public). Since there is a considerable amount of water hazards on each hole, when it rains, you can expect some spongy conditions. As was the case during my round, it was certainly drained well given how much it rained the days prior. All in all, I would recommend this course to any one that does not have access to the private clubs but looking for something better. My only two suggestions to the course would be to consider adding GPS for those looking for the convenience and also consider re-doing the yardages (at least on a number of the holes vs. the scorecard). Having a few lazy moments, I would go by scorecard yardage rather than walk to the tee, guage from the BH plate in the ground and then retrieve my club. This resulted in me tee-ing off with a club with a 30-yard difference in mind

One of the best in the Rochester area

Was in great condition for the time of the year, challenging course, greens are always fast and in beautiful shape, tight fairways, really makes you think about each and every shot. Staff is very friendly and helpful, absolutely one of the best courses in the Rochester area.

Difficult course

We enjoyed the course only wished i had played better.
3 Sprinklers were running in one fairway and there was someone attending them. He did not turn them off when we got to our balls. It was unacceptable to dodge sprinklers to hit from fairway. Making it worse it was raining while they were running. Pro shop help was friendly.

This course is very difficult for intermediate golfers

Sand traps not raked made it difficult. The mowing staff were very courteous.

Well taken care of.

Enjoyed this course very much, grounds are maintained very nicely. Pace of play gets a little bottle necked some days. To be expected of a nice course.

Loved it

Came here on veterans day and got an awesome afternoon price. Course layout makes this one a real challenge. Lots of water hazards. Good course markings. Good looking houses surrounding course too. Border line private CC conditions. A little bit off the beaten path but its more than worth the drive.
