Atlantic City Golf Vacations

Tourists flock to Atlantic City's casinos in hopes of hitting it big at the blackjack table. But AC-bound golfers who want to hit it big off the tee don't have to gamble. Superb golf in this, South Jersey's playground, is guaranteed.

The Atlantic City area boasts some terrific golf courses, many of which have opened only in the last few years. They include Sand Barrens, Harbor Pines, the East and West courses at Blue Heron Pines, Brigantine, Mays Landing and Shore Gate. For truly classic golf, the Seaview Marriott, one of the world's top resorts, offers the Pines Course and the Bay Course, site of the 1942 men's PGA Championship and the current site of the ShopRite Classic, an LPGA event.

All of these venues are member courses of the Greater Atlantic City Golf Association and are distinctive for their playability, excellent condition, strategic interest and scenic wonder. There is something here to fit every level of golfing ability and budget.

But as so many travelers know, Atlantic City has enough to keep you enthralled for days on end, aside from golf. For young and old alike, there is the famous Boardwalk with its many amusements, and the expansive white beaches. Music lovers can hear ragtime piano players in side street cafes or enjoy name entertainers at places like Harrah's or Trump Plaza, and anglers will have a field day trying to bag big game fish. Meanwhile, gourmands and shoppers will have plenty to choose from to satisfy their appetites.

And while all this Jersey Shore activity offers much appeal in the Summer months, don't miss your opportunity to visit this wonderful destination in the Fall and Spring seasons as well. Excellent weather suitable for golf is available in Atlantic City nearly year-round. Beautiful fall foliage and refreshing breezes make for ideal course conditions - right into the month of November. Then it's right back on the course again in March, to witness the emergence of the greenery and enjoy the welcoming warmth of the season.

Any time of the year, excellent golf in Atlantic City is a sure bet. *
