Photo gallery: Crystal Springs Golf Resort in New Jersey features so much more than just seven courses

Playing Twisted Dune Golf Club Egg Harbor Township feels like taking a mini-vacation to Scotland. The traditional links layout is virtually treeless, in keeping with Scottish seaside golf courses, while providing a different option from the abundant forested layouts that line the Jersey Shore.
Sea Oaks Golf Club is one of the Jersey Shore's premier public golf facilities and 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.
Contrary to the name of the town and the club, there are no oc ean views or coastal holes at Shore Gate Golf Club in Ocean View, N.J. But there are certainly plenty of beaches, as in winding waste bunkers and cavernous sand traps on this Ron Fream and David Dale design. Located in Cape May County, just a half-hour's drive from Atlantic City, Shore Gate has been ranked among the top public golf courses in New Jersey.
Atlantic City Country Club is full of history and golf lore. The clubhouse has tons of memorabilia, making it feel like a museum of golf. The course has hosted six United States Golf Association championships, and the golf term "birdie" was invented here. Today, the 6,577-yard, par-70 course remains a pure classic, ranking as the no. 1 public golf course in New Jersey.

Roughly 2 million cubic yards of earth was moved to make Twisted Dune Golf Club, located roughly 15 miles from Atlantic City in Egg Harbor Township, N.J.
