Golf Advisor's Top 10 courses in New Jersey in 2014

New Jersey's small-but-fertile golf scene, from metro New York City to Atlantic City and around Philadelphia, scored some great marks on Golf Advisor in 2014.

Checking in at no. 1 is Ballamor Golf Club in Egg Township, which was receiving great reviews well into November last year.

"My new go to course in Atlantic City," proclaimed reviewer TMadeNice after his August round. While reviewer Robert6612898 described the experience as, "Every hole was a private course unto itself."

So while exclusive, Pine Valley may not be in the regular course rotation for most Jersey golfers, there's a lot to like about Ballamor as well as its neighbor, Harbor Pines Golf Club, also in Egg Township (no. 8). Both of Seaview's 18-hole courses also made it, while Crystal Springs Resort, home to eight courses, placed Ballyowen at no. 3.

Whether you're a local golfer or a regular visitor to Atlantic City or elsewhere in the state, we're curious how you think Jersey's Top 10 in 2014 reflects the golf scene.

There are only 19 golf courses in the Greater Atlantic City Golf Association, but the great mix of unique and traditional courses and historic and modern clubs is second to none. Picking five must-play courses near this gambling hotbed along the Jersey Shore wasn't easy, but Jason Scott Deegan rolled the dice. Check out where they landed.
Most golfers love Twisted Dune Golf Club. The course continues to rank among the top three public golf courses in New Jersey by almost every golf publication. The manmade mounds, irregular-shaped bunkers and the tall fescue give it that "links" look.
