Just 20 minutes south of Atlantic City, the 6,689 yards at Blue Heron Pines brings to mind another noted New Jersey layout -- Pine Valley -- on many of its holes. This 6,777-yard par 72 has a course rating of 73.0.

In fact, the two courses here are among the hottest, must-play courses in southern New Jersey. After opening in May 2000, the links-style Steve Smyers designed East has matured into a course that is every bit as challenging and worthy of praise as the distinctly different West.
