Golf in Atlantic City

Atlantic City is home to a lot of history. The Atlantic City Golf & Country Club is a testament to this, as it is one of the oldest golf clubs in the country and maybe most notably, birthplace to the "birdie". The Brigantine Golf Links can be found north of the city, along the beach. It features breathtaking views of the sea as well as the natural flora and fauna of the area. Last but not least we would like to recommend the Linwood Country Club, a warm and welcoming bay side golf course.
