Best of 2016: Top 15 golf courses in New Jersey

The best golf courses in New Jersey serve both Philadelphia and New York City golfers among other metro areas on the eastern seaboard. It's a longtime golf destination, thanks to such historic clubs as Seaview and Atlantic City Country Club. The new breed features a nice mix of scenic, affordable and championship-caliber layouts to choose from. Crystal Springs Resort, one of the most complete resorts in the U.S., serves as a convenient getaway, while Atlantic City has a collection of great golf as well.

To compile our state lists, we used a similar method to that of our our national Top 50 ranking . A course's score is based on their overall (50%) rating and subcategory average (50%). Reviews are weighted based on how prolific that reviewer is on Golf Advisor, and a course receives a bump in their rating if their score is better than that reviewer's average score.
