Heron Glen Golf Course
Wide Fairways but Challenging Greens
Golf Now had a great bargain to play Heron Glen that I could not pass on. A great course with great club house people with a fast pace of play, overall a 5 stars experience

Quick Round Nice Conditions
Course was in good shape overall. Tee boxes fairways and rough we're very good. A few of the greens were a bit marked up especially #3 a long par four that gets a good amount of third shot wedge play. This is more on the golfers who do not repair ball marks than it is on the staff. Fairways are open and generous without much trouble coming into play. Always a bailout side to avoid bunkers. Courses real defense is thick but not tall rough and the wind which was down when we played. Saw the ranger quite a few times and can only assume he was doing a good job as we played in under 4 hours teeing off at 3:20 on a Friday. Overall I recommend. This is course that charges weekend rates on Fridays.

Best public course in Nj
Heron Glen continues to shine and deliver a great golfing experience. Mid July and the course is excellent. This is the time of year the greens keepers earn their pay. I played at 6:03 Saturday morning. Round took 3:40 to complete I saw more course workers than golfers. They really know how to take care of this course. Greens excellent tee boxes excellent new sand in replaced bunkers a little soft... Well done

5 star -immaculate
Best course I've played this year. Amazing course for NJ. Staff was awesome. Starter was nice. The ranger was all through the course enforcing pace of play! Which made it a nice 4 hr 15 minute round. Cant't wait to play again.
Saw all players fixing two divots on every green. Greens were nice and soft. Brand new sand.
Course is a little boring though no dog-legs, no water. But that doesn't matter to me.

Best public course in the area
Overall my favorite course to play. Great twilight rates. Very open course so wind can definitely effect your shots. Just refinished bunkers.... Look great but difficult to play out of because of plugged lies

This course is great
Other than a few ball marks left in the greens this course is great. I really enjoyed my round the weather was excellent couldn't ask for anything more. Oh if your standing around waiting to putt repair a ball mark or two it will keep the greens in great shape :-)

Heron's Hidden Gem
Add my name to the roster of those so thoroughly enamored with this young and precocious track. Every hole tells a different story without seeming contrived. With forward tees and generous fairways Heron Glen welcomes the high-handicapper while the back tees (7000+) give the advanced player all he can handle. All calibre of players will wish for more course knowledge though in reading the greens, the breaks are subtle in appearance but decisive in movement. At this stage of the development (no doubt luxury homes to follow) the clubhouse is a double-wide trailer but the staff is unfailingly pleasant in a private club kind of way. The course is in nearly perfect condition, which you would expect for mid-June, and they are scrupulous in preventing unnecessary wear with thoughtful and appropriate cart-control signage. Overall, I am very impressed and I will be making the 1 1/4 hour trip from North Jersey many more times in the future. God, why can't we have public courses like this up here?

This is a great course. Nice and long that can challenge you at times. This course was in phenomenal condition when I played it last year. This time round they were doing work on the bunkers so some of them were different than others or under repair. The greens were a bit slower than I remembered but ran pretty true and were in good conditions. The pace of play was ok considering that it was Fathers Day, which probably explains why no one fixed their divots on the greens. Overall this is a good course, especially if you are a resident. The only complaint really is the price we have to pay for being out of county residents.
