Heron Glen Golf Course
Good layout and reliably good conditions
I've been playing this course since it opened (~50 rounds); great for a municipal course; well maintained, greens on the back have always been in better shape than those on the front but overall they're kept in good shape considering the abuse they take; very generous fairways but lots of trouble and lost balls if you hit a wayward drive; interesting par 5s, though, too many forced carrys; pace of play suffers (usually 4:45 to 5hrs) due to the overall length and many hazards; I don't live nearby anymore but won't hesitate to come back whenever I'm in the area

Course Condition was excellent. Fast Green and very nice staff.

Course in very good shape. Bunkers, fairways greens well maintained. Good pace of play with rangers out and about. Tough holes with some interesting pin placements. Greens were fairly true, undulating and quicker than what we are use to. Pretty location and scenary. Clubhouse is a disappointment however with an OK practice area. Very friendly staff. Looking forward to going back soon.

Worthy of the #9 ranked public coarse in NJ!
Heron Glen for being a public county coarse is an excellent course, worthy of being private! First time playing the coarse and it definitely won't be the last. I played it on a windy day so it made the coarse that much more of a challenge but I have a feeling that everyday out there will have at least a little wind. I really enjoyed the round and have already been telling my friends to go play it.

Not for beginners
Beautiful course. Heavily wooded area. Lose a lot of balls if you can't hit straight. Not worth the $63

Interesting course, drop zones a little too favorable
Despite the clubhouse being a big shed, the course was in good conditions (greens a little bumpy still after being aerated a few weeks back). Drop zones for environmental areas are too generous, but the bunkers were in fantastic shape having been redone this year. Course held up despite mid round storm. Only real grumbles were no drinks cart (was 90F + and very humid) and the halfway house charged me $4.50 for a bottle of water.

FUN COURSE, CHALLENGING, EXCELLENT CONDITION, TEE BOXES ONLY OK, GREENS FAST AND FAIR EVEN WITH AERATION. WILL DEFINATELY COME BACK. LITTLE PRICEY IF YOU CANT GET A HOT DEAL. STAFF GREAT AND VERY, VERY ACCOMMODATING

Played here a bunch of times with my club (DGA) mostly on weekdays. We mostly played the whites and occasionally play the Blues. I took a friend who lives in the area and never played the course. I booked through Golfnow and played at 706am. The course was nice and the greens were fast. My friend loved the the course and is interested in playing it again. We played 27 holes.
