Rating 72.3
Type Public
When the Atlantic City Country Club Golf Course opened its doors to all daily-fee golfers, it immediately became a popular choice and it is considered to be one of the best courses in New Jersey. Golf Week Magazine even named it the #1 Public/Daily-Fee Golf Course in New Jersey. This famous golf course is where the term "birdie" is said to have been invented and where high-profile players like Arnold Palmer are said to frequent. This 18-hole course has a challenging layout and a picturesque coastal view with beautiful fairways. The greens are undulating and fast. The course also features challenging par-4s on the 14th and 18th holes. With several hazards on each including large fairway bunkers, both holes require great precision.

A great course in a great setting with a historic classic feel

I was impressed with everything about this golf course. It has a great variety of hole types- straight, left, right, uphill, downhill, long, short (considering the wind, it seemed to me that most of the par-4s played either long or short). The property undulates nicely without anything extreme. the bunkering is large and fair and the greens contour and slope nicely. The fairways have nice width with hazards placed strategically and clearly. Some holes have hazards left or right and others require carries for risk-reward options. The course flows toward, back, then out and into the marshes wonderfully. Some holes are straightforward and others require blind shots (including a mostly blind par-3 set behind a large dune/hill) or carries over water or marshes. The wind was a big factor on quite a few holes, and a couple of long holes play into the wind which adds difficulty. The course is very easy to walk. The views of the marshland and the Atlantic City skyline in the distance add to the experience. The clubhouse is terrific with lots of historical photos and items shown, an old-school lounge and clubroom area, and one of the most interesting historical locker rooms I have seen. The staff was also very helpful. The golf course doesn't blow you away like some other courses that I have rated 5-stars, but it it is good in so many aspects that it is one of my favorites.

Great experience

Overall, great experience. Initially wife fairways made me think this would be an easy course but tougher as you play along. Well kept fairways and good green conditions. Though we are at taitail end of the season, tee boxes are well kept. Course has good layout to keep you interested through out your round. Staff were friendlyespecially the starters. Old school clubhouse but food is good. One thing I thought needed improvement; quickest way to proshop is through men's lockerroom. Safe to say my wifetookthe long way. If you are in AC, definitely a course to try out.

Bear of the best

You really can’t find many golf courses as good as this one let alone.... PUBLIC. Today was my 4th time playing and I enjoyed this one more than the others. Enjoy a lunch, tour the clubhouse and historic locker room. Then spend some time on the great practice facilities before heading to the also incredible first tee which flows into the practice green. Great course. Do not hesitate to book it. Worth every dollar... Sidenote: pro shop attendant, real gentleman, great guy.
