Played here...

...many years ago when it was ranked very high in the state. Not anymore. Conditions where lacking, especially the bunkers, which there are quite a few.

The course was wet so it was cart path only, which I understand, but is was still very difficult because of the moguls and and bunkers lining most fairways. And there are some long walks from green to next tee.

Architecturally, it is visually exciting.

Firing on All Cylinders

First time back in a few years and this course was in fantastic shape. Tee boxes and fairways were pristine and the greens were firing! Firm and fast conditions made for a challenging and enjoyable day. Highly recommend playing this course if you're in the area or looking to make a day trip with friends.

Would recommend to a friend. IF A GOOD PLAYER

Really love this course. Does not get the publicity or business it is capable of. They do not advertise on golfnow.com or teeoff.com which would get new people to try it and then keep them. I would really avoid playing this course on a rainy day. Do not forget your ball retriever. Make sure you hit some bunker shots before you arrive because they will haunt you. Great conditions and layout.

Shore Gate - A Top Shelf Course

I've played a lot of courses in the last 50+ years. Shore Gate is in my top 5 - ever! The layout is magnificent. Almost every hole is spectacular and unique. From the tee box, holes just fit my eyes. Though off-season now, there was a good amount of routine maintenance happening. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens are in excellent shape which is a rarity for many area courses in March. The course is even walkable which is also a rarity for courses designed and built the last 30 years. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed playing here even if one's game is a bit ragged that day. The beauty of the course will be a positive remembrance.

The Gate

My buddies and I took the trip down to shore gate in ocean view. I have really been craving to play here and for January you couldn't ask for much more. The main reason I wanted to play here is the layout, it didn't disappoint. Found myself enjoying every shot. I would play here every day of the week but thats just me.

top of the class

This is an open to the public course that is a must play for the avid golfer when down the South Jersey shore area. It is always in top condition and the variation and challenge of the design is best in the area. This day in early November the temperatures were high 50's but the wind was pretty severe. As we were playing a casual round and in this area handicaps aren't recorded at this time of year, we varied tee depending on wind direction to make the day enjoyable and not beat ourselves up.

Can't wait to play again @ Shore Gate

The rates changed depending on the time of day but felt I got my money's worth every time on this course . It is beautiful & challenging. If you have trouble navigating mounds & moderately steep sand this course is not for you.
