GREAT GOLF

Great Golf and Egg harbor Township are synonymous. During the golf course construction boom in the 1990’s, several distinguished courses were constructed. Notable courses…

      • Harbor Pines offers quite a challenge.  “High End” homes are intermingled along its manicured fairways.twisted dune Egg Harbor Township
      • Twisted Dune provides an authentic “Links” course design. Players feel that this gem has a distinctly different Irish-Scottish golfing experience. With wide open fairways, tricky powerful winds, remarkable grass mounds and bunkers, vast natural waste areas, and true undulating greens, players will be reminded of the challenge and allure of true British Isles golf.
      • McCullough’s Emerald Golf Links — was built atop the old municipal landfill. The course architect Stephen Kay had the monumental task of weaving the “Links” style course holes around 150 metal hexagon shaped methane gas vents. The mound of buried garbage create unique elevations not typically found in South Jersey. The holes are replica holes from famous golf courses in France, Ireland, and Scotland.
      • Ballamor. A change in business philosophy prompted this one private golf course into the public domain. Golf Magazine has rated consistently Ballmor in the top echelons of public courses in New Jersey. Sculpted from dense pine woods, players are beholden to the natural landscape of the property. A true golf test and an expose in beauty.
      • Green Tree Golf  Course is an affordable municipal course on Somers Point May Landing Road. Its a regulation 18 hole, par 72, 5,600 yard course that is renowned for having one of the few par 6 holes in the Northeast (hole #3, from the tips 676 yards). The course is known for its  tight, tree lined fairways and its excellent greens.
