Rated 5 out of 5 by Kmiec Love the conditions and set-up!
This was my first time playing Heron Glen and I will absolutely return when the opportunity arises! The course was in perfect condition for early November (no leaves on the ground, every bunker was raked and contained sand, not dirt, and the greens were FAST and rolled true) which made the round more enjoyable than I expected. The layout of the course provides a the player with an opportunity to score on every hole and it relatively open feel makes if fun for the player who hits the occasional errant shot to redeem him/herself on the next one.

Played on a cold and blustery day, so the pace of play was probable affected by the relatively small turnout.
Overall course conditions were quite good, although there were many obvious ball mark repairs on the faster than most public course greens. Clubhouse is but a trailer and the facility will greatly benefit if and when the much rumored new clubhouse is built. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, unlike many public/muni courses. We will be going back, hopefully when the weather is nicer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by slcnova1972 Nice layout, very good conditions!
Really enjoyable course layout....Well managed, friendly staff. Greens were in great shape, rolling fast but consistent. Fairways were aerated about 10 days ago, so a bit soft and limited run or conditions would have been 5 stars.....too bad the county keeps voting down a real clubhouse, since this is the best public course in my area between PA / NJ.

Decent layout and very well maintained course. Played in 20+ mph winds so it made for an interesting day. Most of the course is pretty exposed so I would imagine that wind is always something to deal with in the spring and fall. Clubhouse is nothing great, but the carts are well maintained and the staff was friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by techguy29 Great round of golf
Played this course a few times, has yet to disappoint, greens were a little beat up with ball marks and foot prints (severe foot dragger a few groups ahead of us) but also played in the afternoon so those things happen. Played into a 1-2 club wind, so definitely tee it forward if not a long hitter or low handicapper used to those conditions. It has always been in fantastic shape every time I have played. Definitely recommend, even if driving an hour or more like I did to get here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fenster752 Must Play!
What a gem! Worth the drive from Middlesex County. Fantastic layout. Tees and fairways in excellent condition considering near drought conditions in NJ. Greens were a little beat up and lots of unfixed ball marks. Also, no permanent clubhouse, just a trailer, but small pro shop and snack bar. Can't wait to play here again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kazmeister Top notch experience
First time playing here, definitely will come back again. Greens just aerated a week ago so I expected the putting to be a bit tough. Wasn't nearly as bad as other courses I've played shortly after green aeration. The course in general was excellent - near perfect fairways (a little dry is all), nice mix of hole design, elevation changes. Met up with a threesome that were a pleasure playing with. Overall a great round!
