About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6507
Slope 129
Rating 72.3
Type Public
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.

One and done.

It worked for us simply for the location, but the course upkeep wasn’t great. The cart person drove past us twice without stopping on a very hot day. Just seems the course try’s to benefit on location alone without putting in much effort. I wouldn’t play here again. I’m hoping there’s better options inland.

Very Unfriendly

Really bummed by this. I’ve touted this course for decades. Always one of my favorites. Checked in this morning and was told to look for a 3rd we were paired with. When I asked what they look like I was told “How do I know?” Told to follow a group and went to the tee and waited after they hit and was then accosted and screamed at that I didn’t check in. I was there 10 minutes ago and had receipt in hand. No apology. Just told to play with 2 other people. 6:45 am tee time mind you. Groupings ahead were 4 ball, 2 ball, 4 ball, 2 ball. Love the layout. Back nine is all world but this was a terrible experience today.

Keep it on the short grass

Nice links layout with a classic feel, but beware of the lush rough and wispy grass mounds all over this layout. The greens were receptive of well struck shots and rolling consistently. This course could really be a battle if the wind is up. I was lucky as it was just breezy enough to keep the heat down and make it tough flying for the 'skeeters and green heads. Some folks have complained about the "backyard feel" of this layout, but to me it was no worse than tracks in most of Florida so this was not a big deal. The only thing was those pesky 'skeeters and with the proximity to the tidal areas, these little guys really can't be avoided (and are not a deterrent for my return).

Mixed Results

The positives - pace of play was good. The best quality of the course was the greens. Hats off to them maintaining the quality thru a very tough summer. Very impressive conditions. They roll pretty fast and pretty much as you read them. The negatives - fairways were tough and the rough was awful. I’m not a big fan of courses that decide “rough equals weeds”. Price was also “just OK” considering it was a mid week round. Bottom line - worth playing once and probably better spring or fall.

Sub Par

I chose this course based on reviews. My son and I had a late night in AC and when I called to push back the tee time you would have thought I was asking to murder someone. As far as the course goes the greens were in excellent condition but the rest of it was lacking. It’s almost as if the entire layout is in people’s backyards. You’re never more than 20 yds from a house. Really not impressed and for $70 it is only worth $40 at best. BTW the horseflies are the size of birds.

Nice course

Beautiful breezes. Hard course I. Some places. Reasonable in others. But can be difficult if winds are not cooperative. Bring bug repellent. If you don't, you can end up miserable. If you can't hit perfectly straight. You will loose balls
