About

Holes 18
Type Public
Style Links
Par 72
Length 6507 yards
Slope 129
Rating 72.3

The public, 18-hole golf course at Brigantine Golf Links is not only beautiful scenery and a great game it is also a National Audubon Sanctuary. Its layout has roots in Scottish golfing tradition. The golf course utilizes the natural environment featuring a softly rolling terrain and marshes as well as gorgeous bay views.

Like traditional Scottish Links courses, Brigantine is marked by nearly tree-less greens and the type of shot to take often depends on the wind. There are powerful sea breezes that affect the shots and bunkers that make for an interesting game. The smooth, rolling greens encourage a bump-and-run strategy. The scenic course's location close to the Atlantic City boardwalk and the challenging, but fun game it offers make it popular among tourists and locals of all skill levels.

Average course

Nothing too fancy about this course, particularly for the price compared to other courses in the area. The greens are in fantastic shape but the fairways and rough are pretty beat up in a lot of places.

I would recommend having the pro shop open up before the 1st tee time in order to have golfers go off at their booked tee time. Also would suggest having a beverage cart if this course is trying to compete with other courses at the same price point.

The horse flies and mosquitos will eat you for lunch. Bring bug spray and ignore the trails of oil the lawnmower is leaving all over the greens and you will have a great day!

Definitely Worth Your Try

I played late on a Sunday afternoon and got right out. I was hoping for a retired military discount but they only apply on weekdays. ($45 I am told). Very friendly staff. I was a single and breezed through the course. Greens and fairways were in good condition. Although not a long course, the wind will play into your round and it's a factor. It's a bit over priced when compared to McCullough's or Twisted Dunes or Hot Deals on Golf Now, but if you're staying on Brigantine, the convenience is a big factor. It has a charm to it which you should experience.

Nice course to play once

The layout of the course is great. The traps, water hazards and reeds make the course challenging. Most courses with all the rain we had, most courses are in great shape. The course is already getting burnt up, the sand traps have numerous weeds, and a lot of crabgrass. With much needed maintenance, the course would be quite attractive.

Hole in one!

Played with family over vacation. We got off early at 7am (a must for July). The course is in good condition. Near the North End of the island famous for our “Green Head” friends. Make sure to bring plenty of bug spray and “Skin So Soft” (South Jersians will know what this is). My son had a hole in one on the #15 par 3. A very nicely laid out hole! The staff was gracious and gave me a discount so I could buy my son an actual hole flag!! What a great day!!!

Lost Opportunity

I have been playing this course since 1972, and I've always enjoyed the layout. After it was purchased, a couple decades ago, and improved, I was so excited. However. It appears the facilities have been in decline ever since. The club house is worn, the cart paths are in poor condition, there is no help available outside. This excellent layout is run as the second rate municipal course its owners apparently want.

What we liked, what we didn’t

What we liked:
1) cheap 6:45am rate $35 per player
2) fast pace of play on a slow Tuesday summer morning
3) condition of greens - smooth and fast
4) challenging hole design
5) tough slopes on greens and difficult pin placements

What we didn’t like:
1) some holes had hidden tee landing spots for rear tees, presenting an extra challenge for first-timers here; a course guide would be helpful
2) couldn’t find on-course restrooms (may have been locked)
3) cart paths are a mess

Contrary to previous reviews, we found the fairways in very good shape, but the tee boxes needed some rest and recovery. We also disagree with previous reviewers that houses next to the some of the holes were too close to fairways. We realize this is a matter of opinion, but our group never had trouble with the houses coming into play because they were too close. If we hit anywhere near someone’s backyard, it was because our shots went way off target.

Links

I enjoy the true links nature of this course.
The residential neighborhoods typically do not enter into play. The course melds with the surrounding natural setting.
The greens rolled true.
The staff was exceptional.
I enjoyed the attitude of the young man in the pro shop. He was all about golf, as it should be.

Course was in great shape but last year the course had directional sticks that were missing thisyear. They should put them back. There should be better hole layouts on the score card.

Don't Bother

The greens are a 10/10 (somehow). The rest of the course is a 2/10, and is uninteresting, in poor shape, and surrounded by homes (within feet of the holes). Play Twisted Dunes, Seaview, or Shoregate (amongst others) as an alternative.

Not Good Would Not Go Back

Arrived 5 minutes before tee time. My fault running late. I walked in was greeted by some snot nosed young man who said " Your Late Hop To It" Are you kidding me this 60 year old retired school teacher does not hop to anyone barking at me. The course was beat up to say the least . No golfers were playing behind us nor in front so there was no need to HOP TO IT.. There was soccer golf I believe 2 groups out on the course. They resort to this I guess because course is not doing well. So needless to say it was not a very good round of golf.

Just not worth it

I played here 20 years ago and my opinion is actually lower than the first time, course needs more maintenance money, gave a fair rating only because the course was wet and it was windy, houses are way too close to all of the holes, perhaps the owners should sell, it is not worth the drive from anywhere, better courses nearby.
WIll never return to play, disappointing.

Most unfriendly staff... Except for the women working the bar. She was great.

If you have the first tee time, don't arrive early. We arrived at 6:00am for our 6:30 tee time and everything was closed. A sign on the pro shop door said the course doesn't open until 6:30 and there was no place to wait other than near the practice green. There was a grounds keeper rolling the practice green and once he was finished, we started putting to kill time. Immediately, another greens keeper started yelling at the person rolling the green saying the course doesn't open until 6:30 and to kick us off the practice green if we were in his way, which we weren't since we waited until he was finished working. The course itself was in good condition but make sure to bring bug spray. There are flys everywhere. The round itself was fine until we got to the 18th green where the same greens keeper who yelled at us earlier kept watering the green during our approach shots and through our putting and even had his phone go off while we were still putting out. Next time, we'll spend the extra money to go somewhere that treats their patrons a little better.
