Rating 71.7

The golf course at McCullough's Emerald Golf Links is an 18-hole, public course that is situated within minutes of Atlantic City. Designer, Stephen Kay decided to pay tribute to famous European golf courses such as St. Andrew's in his design. The European influences are reflected in the open fairways, tricky strong winds, and undulating greens. The golf course also boasts the region's only 100-feet elevation changes.

McCullough's Emerald Golf Links' signature hole is the seventh; it is also the course's most unique. The hole features hazards like large bunkers and wide, rolling fairways. Water hazards also come into play on five holes. The acclaimed golf course is challenging but it does provide a truly unique golfing experience.

Enerald is a gem !!!

Happy New Year !!
Chilly windy day on top of the land fill....
Was absolutely one of the most fun coarses I’ve ever played ..At $41 on golf now. Worth it
Some coarse knowledge would help , but targets for blind shots spot on .
Next time I won’t play it from the tips on a cold windy day. Will be going back

Playable fun course

The course sits on an old dump that was transformed into one of the best challenges in the area. The course is very well maintained at a reasonable price. Staff is very friendly and on top of your needs. Great little outside bar that overlooks the 18th green. One of my favorite courses in the area

1st Time , Will be Back

It was a cool morning with light wind, course in good shape, with a couple holes fairways freshly aerated. Loved the greens with slopes and bowls, not too many flat putts. Great layout, used the combo of gold and white tees. Staff was great.

Fun course that delivers what is advertised

Have played Mccullough’s now several times , great staff , and for a Links course it adds a fantastic dimension to your round that lots of other courses can’t deliver. If you haven’t played there give it a try . Only one small thing is that they do not have a practice range which is a bit disappointing. But overall it is a fun round the bar and food afterwards is also fantastic.
