Guess Where to Tee Off

We golfed in the mid-afternoon and the course never put the tees out on the tee box. Every hole we had to guess where the blue tees might be. Greens had small chunks of dirt all over them as well. Otherwise, the course was maintained nicely.

Decent Course

Enjoyed the course. it is tight and challenging. The pro shop needs help. Young kids running it. Do not rent clubs. i rented clubs and they were a bunch of different clubs they found on the course and very poor shape. The greens were aerated at time of play but still nice.

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.
