LITTLE EGG HARBOR, N.J. -- Sea Oaks Golf Club is one of the Jersey Shore's premier public golf facilities.
It is located at New Jersey's southern tip neighbored by other top golf courses such as Blue Heron Pines Golf Club and Harbor Pines Golf Club, but it still manages to hold its own.
Sea Oaks sprawls across hilly terrain with five holes that are particularly dramatic. On these lofty holes, you can enjoy views that stretch to Long Beach Island and the Atlantic City skyline. Mature oaks and pines line the fairways, and dozens of strategically placed bunkers frame the greens. Several man-made water hazards were also added to the course.
The course's designer, Ray Hearn, masterfully utilized the natural features of the scenic Pine Barrens while still preserving the beauty of the landscape.
One of the most scenic holes is the par-5 16th where a lake surrounds the green, tempting risky golfers to hit a fairway wood or long iron in order to carry it.
