Middletown is a compact 80 acres of challenging golf, with rolling hills and large specimen trees that have watched many golfers travel its fairways over time. It has retained its old time feel with tees and greens in close proximity, allowing golfers to walk the course if they choose.

Blue Heron Pines: Simply Marvelous

Written by Bob Oliver

Back in 1993 it was a different time on the South Jersey public golf scene.

 

There were nice "local courses" like Brigantine, Avalon, Atlantis and Mays Landing. Nice golf, to be sure, but not extremely special.

 

Then owner Roger Hansen unveiled the brand spanking new, upscale, Blue Heron Pines. The new kid on the block was met with great reviews. The Stephen Kay design was challenging and a whole lot of fun.

Written by Bob Oliver

Manufacturers spend millions of dollars to get that buzz, paying large endorsement contracts to PGA Tour professionals to play their equipment, wear their logos and make special appearances pushing product.

 

Endorsements help sales, and with more sales come more endorsements.

Written by Bob Oliver

There is an old adage that implies there are different horses for different courses.


In golf, that's true.


Well, maybe not for Tiger Woods, who wins anywhere any everywhere around the world. But even Mr. Woods has a mastery over the Firestone Country Club where he's won 6 of his 62 PGA Tour victories.
