Rating 74.6

The18-hole track at Ballamor Golf Club is renowned for its usage of the naturally hilly course in its layout. Brian Ault, the designer, utilized the natural terrain and thick forestry and also added subtle modern and traditional touches to create a unique golfing experience.

The golf course doesn't feature any "signature" hole, but each hole is different from the others and they employ the use of almost every type of golf shot. As a composition, the 18 holes create a course that is both challenging and fun. The course also has five sets of tee boxes. Another distinguishing characteristic of the course is its "go out and stay out" philosophy and layout. The golfer starts near the Clubhouse but doesn't end until the 18th green. This allows for a faster game and there is also a halfway house for refreshments.

one of the best in public golf

Ballamor is in great shape right now. Fairways and greens are manicured beautifully and the staff is doing a great job making this a premier place. The greens are huge and undulating and the most difficult part of the course. Fairways are generous and traps are all over and huge. Everything was perfect on this day.

Great condition and course

1st time playing here and will be back. Played with only one other person and got through the course right under 4 hrs. Had a few groups in front of us but still made good timing. The course was in great shape and very nice. Only met one employee and he was very friendly and welcoming.

What challenging greens!

Knew I was in for a challenging day when I read the tee box message that said "pin position 5". Many of these greens are very large and three tiers. Needless to say I had a few from 12 feet and in that just lipped out of the cup. Was paired with a member and two other people that have only played this course once previously and we had a blast. Lunch was good on the outdoor patio too beforehand. The halfway house was a good place to pick up beverages, cause you need to stay hydrated. A little pricey but the conditions are superb. The closing hole, 18, makes you want to go for it over a man-made lake with a wall in front of the green, Almost made it but bounced back in. I shot an 88 (I am usually in the mid 80's) from the blue tees, a good mix of short par 4's, really challendging par 3's with forced carries over fescue and i imagine the wind makes it even more difficult. I am from north jersey but this is on my list to play again and again when i come back to egg harbor / atlantic city.

Superb fairways - Impossible greens

The course is definitely one of the best in the area.

The problem with this course is the super fast greens.
These greens are unbelievably fast and difficult. Plan on making 40-50 putts your first time.
Two putts are rare even for the advanced single digit handicappers

This is by far the best course in the area. Great staff and fantastic course (layout and conditions). It was extremely windy yesterday which made this challenging course even more of a challenge. I'd highly recommend Ballamor.

Nice layout

Nice course.
Nice layout.
LARGE greens and at least half of them are three tiered.
If you aren’t paying attention to those pin positions, you’re bringing a three putt into the equation on every hole.

Hidden Gem in the woods

If you play golf in South Jersey this is a must stop course to play. When you pull in there is a great driving range with chipping and putting area easily accessible.
The Proshop is excellent and well staffed. There is a bar and restaurant available for lunch.
The Course was in excellent shape- Tee boxes were in great shape with well planned levels. Fairways for November golf were in great shape-Greens were FAST -Course plays from the Clubhouse out to halfway house and back-
This course is fun to play plenty of elevation changes and some interesting water holes. Course winds it way thru numerous wooded areas players need to keep it the fairway to score which are forgiving.
Come play this hidden gem-

not worth the green fees

We arrived at Ballamoor expecting what they usually have ,friendly staff challenging golf,, great course conditions.Frist shock was green fees increase
ed to $89.The condition on the front nine was not good at all, the tees and fairways were airratted but not in good condition to a course like Ballamor.
Not worth the green fees they charge.

Ballamor 1st timer

Enjoyed a great day of golf. Staff was courteous and friendly from bag drop/clubhouse/starter.

Course was in great condition considering its early spring. Layout was challenging and greens were very good. Looking to play here again when nicer weather arrives.

The temperatures are down....

...so the green fees are down too. $49 to play the course in excellent condition throughout. It was not crowded. so we played in a little over 4 hours. It is a big course and covers a large area and some long rides from green to next tee.
