Holes 18
Type Public
Par 70
Length 6577 yards
Slope 133
Rating 72.3
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.

Top Notch

This a wonderful old style golf course on the Bay across from Atlantic City. The course was in great shape for this time of year. Only negative is a foursome drove down 10th hole to 11 tee when we were on 9th hole and we caught them as a threesome without trying by the 14th hole. We were third group out so we had been playing without waiting the entire front nine.

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.

Awesome Course

Might be the nicest course I've ever played and I've played many public and a handful of private courses. The staff was friendly and the course was impeccable. I hope we can play it again next year on vacation - hopefully sooner.

Very nice course - but

This is a really nice old school facility , the course layout is fantastic along with nice locker rooms , good dining and a great staff . Unfortunately some of the course conditions were terrible , most notable were the tee boxes and some of the greens. For the high price admission they should pay more attention to details, it provides a better golfing experience . I'll give this place another shot in the fall,

A Course with History

Was drawn to ACCC by the history behind the course, even though the price tag was a little salty ($99 after 3; much more in prime time). I'd say it was worth it to play the course once. It was in excellent condition, and the layout was much more open than I expected it to be. The last few holes near the marsh got a little tight, but much of the front felt pretty wide open. The bunkers were intimidating at times, but fair. There were many fantastic views of the AC skyline to compliment the round as well. Overall, it was a great experience. (Checking out some of the names on the lockers before the round was an added bonus.) Definitely worth playing.

Best Course in Atlantic City

Just returned from a brothers golf trip to Atlantic City and played many of the local courses including Twisted Dunes, Balamor and Seaview Bay. Atlantic City Country Club was the best track by far and one of the top 5 courses I've ever played. The history of the course, excellent conditions, fun holes and views make it a must play in AC. Our only criticism would be the rude staff in the pro shop. We had trouble finding the pro shop which is strangely tucked behind a small door next to the men's locker room. The pro shop guy gave us attitude and called us dummys for not being able to find it. We told him that there were 5 other guys trying to find it too and he said they were all morons as well. Guy should find another job or not show up to work hungover. Besides this clown it was an extremely memorable and great round. HIghly recommend this course!

Neat place

You really get the feeling there is a lot of history here and not only because it's all over the clubhouse walls. The course was in decent shape with most of the attention being paid to the bunkering around the greens and the greens themselves. The course was not pristine tee to green but from 100 in is where this course shines. The back 9 is interesting as its along the water with Atlantic city in the background. The staff was super friendly. I'd definitely go back.

The Best Public Course in NJ

In my humble opinion. Every hole gives you something to think about. New bunker renovations are excellent and consistent throughout. My favorites are the 14th, a short par 4 with a forced carry over the bay to a narrow green. No. 15 might be one of the best par 3's in the state, with tidal basin, front, right and back of the green. And the par 4 16th that runs along the the bay. It's a must play!!
