Blue Heron Golf Club welcomes you to this beautiful picturesque nine hole par 33 golf course located in the heart of Lanark County, Ontario, 6km from Lanark, 15 minutes from Perth and 1 hour from Ottawa.
Cut out of Lanark County's famous Maple Sugar Bush, the tree lined fairways and elevation changes are a challenge to all levels of golfers. The North Creek meanders through the course coming in to play on four of the holes. The view from the tee on the signature ninth hole is almost picture perfect. The green is framed with trees on the right and sand on the left, a must see in person.

The Blue Heron Golf Club hasn't suffered the same way some local area golf courses have with the drought conditions locally. The fairways were all in good condition with very little indication of lack of water.
Although a bit on the small side and lacking contour, the greens were all in very good shape. There were no irregular shaped greens and bunkering (I believe there was only 6) around them was minimal.
The course is short, tipping in at under 2000 yards from the tips and just over 1600 from the front tees. A third set of tees is beginning to take shape as they appeared on a few holes.
I only used a driver once on this course and that being the 2nd hole. At just over 250 yards this is and easy drive for me. A drive can be used on a few other holes but with the tightness of the fairway you may want to play it a little safer.
There are no par 5s at Blue Heron with the longest hole being #1 at around 300 yards. New signage has been posted at each hole so the current scorecard is not accurate but we were well informed of this in the clubhouse.
The short par 4 5th says 150 from the tees but it's a sucker play to go for the green unless you hit an extremely high ball. It's probably best to lay up to the middle of the fairway.
Water really never comes in to play although there is a large marshy area that you'll cross a number of times. The course layout on the scorecard looks like there's water a plenty.
The signature hole was identified as #9 but this is probably because of the elevated tee shot. There were a number of other holes I liked better.
The beverage cart was around often. As a special touch, frozen face clothes were offered to keep patrons cool on this hot day. A nice touch and much appreciated. Washrooms were found after the 5th hole.
Blue Heron did have some ups and downs but it was still a rather easy walk as the course length makes up for the elevation changes.
I understand the current owners are in their third year of operating Blue Heron and some nice changes are underway. The course is a nice casual play and is great for seniors.
