A Must Play...

...at the Jersey Shore. Course was good throughout except the bunkers. Many filled with water. Still worth a play.

Fun Course

Great course to play. Went on a warm December day (56 degrees) on the day after a huge rainstorm. Holes 13-14 were closed and we were expecting that due to notification on the GolfNow app and the fact that we have had a lot of rain this summer/fall season.

Needless to say, I had a great time out there with my buddy who is a local. This is my first time playing any course in the AC area and it was a lot of fun. The head PGA professional was there to greet us and talked a little about the courses and the area. Great local knowledge and advice on other courses to try for our next round. We booked the 9:15 tee time and we were able to get out earlier and set the pace for the day. Despite the heavy rains, the course was in great shape...a little soft in places but it dried out as the day went on. Due to holes 13-14 being closed, we were told to play holes 1-2 again to get a full round it.

Course was fairly challenging, but not as unforgiving as some other links-style courses that I have played. You could play driver on almost every hole and the fairways were wide enough that as long as you hit it fairly straight you'd be fine. It got a little predictable after a while, but I had a good time learning my way around this course. Would definitely play again. Heard it could be a little steep in the prime golf season (especially since it's a resort area I can understand why) But the course is worth it for a slurge here or there. This was a fantastic deal at $39 with cart included.

Always a challenge

Not raining, but wet, so cart path only.

A 45 degree winter day. All things considered, the course was in really great shape. Visually stimulating and a fun, challenging course. It is well worth the hour plus drive for me to play here.

Course is great and interesting. We were surprised how wet it was with no rain in a few days. It was Cart Path Only which was an added challenge.

Slow play, poor conditions

First let me say that rain has made this course more different & recent aeration hampers ones ability to score.

However, that’s no excuse to not cut and/or role the greens on the weekend.

Better courses, at least those that claim to be better do that every day & they change the cups.

The greens were unkempt. Not just from players but by the management.

The bunkers (there are a lot here) need to be upgraded. They were muddy, not raked & full of stones. (Tire tracks in many)

The tee boxes were in good shape.

There was a ranger but he wouldn’t push the slow groups in front of us which led to the group be hind us to hit into us.

That’s frustrating. I found myself rushing shots which doesn’t make for a good round.

Twisted Dunes is a good layout & a very good test of golf.

It plays long when it’s wet & can be a bear in the wind.

Overall it was a beautiful day, but would have been better if the place was better kept & the ranger closed the 2 hole gap two groups in front of us.

Glad we Played!

We were unfortunate to schedule playing Twisted Dunes on a day that the winds blew from the NW at 25 mph with gusts to 45 mph, but we still had a great time. The fairways are wide in a layout that is quite challenging at times. It is definitely a "must play" if you are in the area. It is on our list when we return to the Atlantic City area.

Nice course, good value

Even right after green aeration, greens ran true, albeit a little sandy. Fairways great, tee boxes OK. Some bunkers OK, most need tilling and sand, some were water hazards rather than sand.

The layout is great; real feel of links golf.

Pace of play was slow - 4:50, with two slow foursomes ahead of us (more frustrating as we were a twosome). C'mon guys, don't watch every putt and then approach your ball!

Perfect weather. Had a great time.

Booked as a single. They paired me up with another single and a pair of locals. Had a great time. Fairways and greens in great shape. Tees were a bit chewed up, but it has been a very wet summer. The greens were fast and true. The only thing I didn't like was all the rocks in the bunkers, but local rules allow for the movement of impediments.

The carts could use a little tlc. The guys at the bag drop, and the starter were very friendly. Only saw the beverage cart twice, but there was also a few water coolers.

Overall I would make the drive up here next summer to play again.

Did I mention the greens were fast?

disappointed !

You would think for the $90 rate they charge they would a least mow the fairways. The carts are a little run down also. Greens were fast and in good shape(best and only good thing today)....nice layout but I'm guessing Twisted Dunes is mismanaged and not putting much money back into the course.
