I'm one of those locals, although I don't live miles away from other courses - I regularly play Blue Heron, Renault, Seaview, Habor Pines, Twisted Dunes, and Brigantine. I like Brig for a nice alternative that makes you feel good about your game (it's fairly easy to score) and is different in a quirky way. I don't mind the houses, the greens are true, the greenheads aren't that bad when the winds comes up, and the goose turds make a nice snack when you get hungry. Plus, Brig is half the price of most "real country club" courses. So, like Golfcrazy said, quit your whining, go to Brig, and have some fun shooting a low score!

Interesting course. It's sort of like playing golf within the confines of a suburban neighborhood. Imagine teeing off on you neighbors lawn and hitting to a green that is someone elses front lawn. Houses abound and there signs atthe tee boxes that state you are responsible for any damages to homes lining the course.
On one hole I saw some tourists crabbing in one of the water hazards. I found a dead seagull in my golfcart and the fairways had some goose turds on them. Do you like bugs? Then you'll love this course as the greenheads try to carry you bodily into the swamps. So if you can get pass the houses, the insects and the poop.. you'll actually like the course. Greens are in good shape. The golf carts come with gps yardage markers and electronic score cards.. pretty nice. There's one par three that's pure target golf.. water hazard to the left with a forced carry. Staff and amenities are quite good. Play in spring and fall.

I play Brigantine about 5-8 times per year, not because I love the course, but because I have a summer house there. This being said, it is a nice test of golf especially when the wind kicks up, and the fact that I don't need to drive 20 miles away in summer beach traffic to play a 5-plus hour round at 150.00 only adds to Brigantine's appeal.

Some tips for those of you new to the island. First and foremost, get to know the staff. They are a local bunch that is open and friendly. If you get to know them, they will treat you even better. Second, golf as early in the am as you can in summer. The track is still moist and the bugs haven't come out to feast in full. Third, bring bug spray. Bugs along the bay are terrible, although no worse than high season at Galloway National or Seaview. Four, learn Tiger's "stinger" shot and a knockdown shot and play it. High shots will cost you when the wind blows.

I played Memorial Day 2008 and the course was in terrific shape because of recent rains. Greens were shaved close and true, fairways were lush and weed free, and tee boxes were still passable. Expect harder conditions during the summer, as it is my experience that the course is underwatered in the dog days.

Finally, stop @$!*%ing that it isn't like your country club and have fun. Its under 100 bucks, there's a GPS on the cart, and a cute cart girl with beer and ice on the course. And you can still hit the beach by 1pm after lunch.

Short and fairly easy course if you can hit it straight. It’s hard to say that there are any particularly good holes here, but there are a few interesting holes that are puzzling on your first play; #11 and #17 in particular.

The par 4 holes probably hold the most interest, with the par 3’s being rather straight forward and the par 5’s all being very short by modern standards, even from the back tees. It calls itself a links, which it isn’t (by definition), and truthfully it doesn’t look or play like a links either. There is an abundance of water on the course, with ponds and lakes coming into play on almost every hole. The course also suffers from some bad aesthetics due to houses being on top of every hole on the course.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to play here, and I suspect that most people do not. This course likely thrives on locals who are miles away from any other golf options, and tourists who visit the island during the summer.

There are certainly worse places to play, but in the end this is a very average course that doesn’t offer many memorable moments.

Reviewed October 31, 2007 here each time we come to AC. the course is FLAT, Windy, and the distances =Wicked"(deceiving because of the wind). The course is a " I love Golf" course, not a "must play" or "upscale" and most important: its fairly close to the Casinos............. so you can lose it all in one day

Prepare for about a thousand bug bites. Full of bugs to the point where it is hard to play there. COnditioning is okay. Water hazards smelled horrible. Old beer cans and trash. Shot my best score ever there, and will never go back.

You have got to play it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two of us played it in November 2 years ago, we absolutely loved it, came back the next year with a foursome, and the other 2 guys loved it. Funny thing is we were playing with a guy back home 4 weeks before we went to Atlantic City the 1st time and this said the course was terrible, my friend wanted to cancel the tee time based on this guys recommendation, I said "NO" let's play it anyway. We have played 8 courses in the last 2 years in the Atlantic City area, and this one remains our favorite. Lot's of water, when the wind kicks up plays very tough, some real interesting holes, GPS on the carts. Highly recommend it. I am a 10 handicap and my friend is a 6 handicap.
