The public course at Sea Oaks Country Club is an 18-hole championship course that covers 194 acres of beautiful terrain in the pine barrens of South Jersey. The golf course utilizes the natural landscape but it also integrates modern techniques in its design. Pines and oaks are scattered throughout the scenic course providing a nice view while playing. Sea Oaks Country Club also features difficult water hazards and bunkers as well as uphill and downhill lies. With its five-tee system, the back tee is quite challenging while the front tees offer different routes to take for beginning golfers if it gets too difficult making it a good option for all levels of golfers.

Great for some perhaps, not for me

First off, I've been to Sea Oaks a number of times and booked a round there for a roving guys' golf trip heading to AC. I was very disappointed.

When I book a round for these guys, we're looking for great golf. Most important are condition, layout, pace of play, and staff, in that order.

Conditions were terrible. They aerated recently but that was only part of it Tee boxes were uneven and unmowed. There were many bare spots in the fairways and this was not a bad weather summer for golf courses. As for staff, the starter literally stood on the tee w/ us behind us as we hit watching our tee shots on first hole and told us we'd "better get through four holes in an hour" or he'd be "coming after us". We did our part only to be stuck behind really slow groups and there was no marshal moving people along. (The starter later told us he left at 3, which was an hour after we teed off.) Rude and not acceptable.

So why might it be great for some? Most groups seemed to be carrying a case of beer with them and beer was plentifully available on the course.

Some had a boombox in their cart and played music throughout the round at volumes that could be heard from 100 yards away. I'm not exaggerating.

So if you're a golf purist I say stay away. There are some GREAT tracks down the road. If you like to drink and rock out while you play and feel welcome doing so, this is your spot.

Hi Rich2527438!

Thank you for taking the time to offer feedback. We recently performed greens aeration (9/4 and 9/5). While we have had plenty of rain, we need some sunshine to promote healing. We hope you give us another play sometime soon!

Thanks,

A tough day at a great track...

Took a Hot Deal here on a beautiful Saturday afternoon after a week of rain. We were behind a bachelor party so it was slow going - 3 hour front 9 and 5:15 overall. The greens were recently aerated and the rough was high due to all of the rain, but it was still a good round, and I’ll be back !

Hi Christophe4448910!

Thank you for taking the time to rate Sea Oaks. Our golf course aeration took place on 9/4 and 9/5. We do offer a reduced rate ($49 - 18 holes, and $29 - 9 holes) over a 10 day period (9/4 - 9/13) as the course recovers. As far as the length of rough, you can thank Mother Nature for this. Yes, the golf course is quite the challenge right now! We hope to see you again soon.

Burnt Out

Overall, not a bad course if you get a good deal. The grass couldn’t use some work, they had some big patches of burnt grass and grass under repair. Greens were okay, slow rate of play. Wouldn’t go back unless the deal was great.

Good, but been better

I've always loved the lay out of this golf course and typically it's in fantastic condition. But not this time. Fairways are burnt out on several holes, bunkers are starting to erode. We've had plenty of rain this summer so to see the place burnt out is a shame. Greens are decent although they are slower than in the past. I'm hearing that the course is being sold, so perhaps that's why maintenance is not up to same level as it used to be. For $55 that we paid it's not bad, but I would not spend much more than that.

Hi u414921124!

Thank you for your comments! We do try our best to provide optimum playing conditions. Strangely enough we've missed a good portion of the rain many have received and when we get it, it's at downpour level. Anyway, I'm not one for excuses, I just hope we can do better by you on your next visit!

Nice layout with rolling terrain

Everyone was happy to see us on a changeable weather day. The Pro said we could get out early if we liked. Course in good condition with giant greens that rolled a bit slow, but heck, it was wet out. The layout is a mixture of shorter and longer holes allowing for different strategies to attack.

We always enjoy this course and it’s relatively close to LBI.

Nice golf course staff extremely friendly. Pace of play could be a little bit better but not outrageous. For as much pleasure as it gets it's one of the better semi-private clubs at the Jersey Shore. They don't seem to get the green head flies like a dude closer to Atlantic City

One of the nice features of Sea Oaks is the multiple tee box locations . If only the guys in frint of had revognized that playing from the senior tees does not constitute castratiion when no one in your 4 some is ever more than 160 off the tee and even then never in the fairwAy.

Return to sea oaks

The course today was in good condition with obvious signs of keeping it watered and maintaining greens.

Greens rolled nicely but slower. Fairways nicely maintained and wide.

Outside staff not particularly on the ball but they take care of you.

There is a nice chipping and putting area.

I have so far enjoyed coming back to the sea oaks.

Cheers
