Golf in the Atlantic City area

From seaside links with breathtaking views to parkland-style fairways nestled in the heart of the pinelands, the Atlantic City area is home to many of the finest golf courses on the East Coast.
First-class casino action, golf, spectacular nightlife and headliner entertainment, golf, the beach, a world-famous Boardwalk, golf, sports teams, premiere restaurants, you name it, the Atlantic City region has it. Did I mention golf?
Having originated from a game played on the eastern coast of Scotland in the Kingdom of Fife during the 15th century, the word "golf" is recorded as long ago as 1457. Players would hit a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks using a stick or primitive club.

My, how times have changed! Today golf has become a large part of the Southern New Jersey landscape, and those who yearn for courses that offer challenging and exciting fairways, exemplary hospitality and magnificent natural beauty for beginners and professionals alike, need only travel minutes from the ocean in any direction.

The following are just a few of the premiere golf resorts in the Atlantic City region:

Blue Heron Pines
Blue Heron Pines, located in Cologne, about a half hour from Atlantic City, offers 36 holes of championship golf, and has been a trend-setting golf club from the start in 1993.
>The 18-hole West Course, designed by renowned architect Steven Kay and featuring over 6,800 yards of exquisite fairways, manicured greens and blue water, sets the tone for up-scale, daily-fee golf at the Jersey shore. Designed by Steven Smyers, the East Course measures 7,221 yards from the back tees, features a links-style design with wide fairways, challenging bunkers and generous tees and greens.
Each course comes complete with its own clubhouse. Blue Heron Pines is home to the prestigious Golf Digest Schools one of two locations in the Northeast.

Brigantine Golf Links
Just across the bay from Atlantic City, experience golf as it is played on the legendary courses of the British Isles at Brigantine Golf Links. Breathtaking ocean views and a flat, nearly treeless terrain are reminiscent of the original links courses of the British Isles.
Built in 1927, the 18-hole par 72 course, measuring 6,570 yards from the back tees, has been extensively renovated over the past 10 years, returning it to its original grandeur and cementing a place for Brigantine Golf Links among the numerous courses that have helped the region earn the label "South Jersey's Golf Coast.

Shore Gate Golf Club
With the opening of Shore Gate Golf Club in Spring 2002, the greater Atlantic City area welcomed one of the most spectacular parkland courses to its already powerful roster of southern New Jersey venues.
Located to the south in Ocean View, Shore Gate is stretched over 235 acres of completely secluded woodlands and sand dunes. A Ron Fream design, the course offers five sets of tee markers ranging from 5,200 to 7,200 yards.
