Usually i would give Blue Heron 5 stars but today the pace of play was dreadfully slow. 4 hrs and 40 minutes. In addition many of the fairways were just aerated . I know that is usual this time of year and i assume that is why the fairways are usually in pristine conditions. Greens were in great shape. I hope to get back again when conditions are better.

Good course, great conditions, SLOW PACE OF PLAY

Tough scene out there. Waiting forever between shots, then by the time you are ready to hit, feeling pressures by the group behind. Nice course and good conditions, but ouch for pace of play.

Great day at Blue Heron

Course is in great shape: tees to green. Staff has arranged sign in safely but still friendly and accommodating to golfers. Nice to play there with a cart. It was very hot today but pace was quick. Done in three hours!! Greens were rolling nicely.

Great Layout

By far one of the better layouts in the Rochester area.

Conditions were very good considering the rain we had received.

Good value

Played course first time. Used rental clubs which were old and tired but at least they only charged us $15 per set.
Course layout and condition of fairways and greens was good.
Paths are in need of repair however.
We got a good value deal on Golf Now so overall we were happy and would recommend.
