THE BRIGANTINE LINKS GOLF COURSE, South Jersey Golf Course Guide
True to its historic Scottish roots, The Brigantine Links Golf Course layout offers breathtaking bay views, native marsh and gently rolling, nearly treeless terrain. With prevailing sea breezes and carefully placed concave bunkers, this 18-hole, par 72 course provides an exciting and ever-changing experience for golfers of all skill levels.
Known as Brigantine Country Club for 60+ years, in 1989 the property was purchased and the name was then changed to Brigantine Golf Links. The new owner then renovated all the fairways, finished the cart paths, and built a new clubhouse, among other things. In July of 2002, the property was sold to the City of Brigantine, who hired Meadowbrook Golf, Inc. to manage the property, and then came the current name, The Links Golf Course at Brigantine Beach. Look for new and exciting changes in the near future, for the City has plans to beautify the clubhouse and its surroundings.
After a decade of renovation and upgrades, The Brigantine Links Golf Course at Brigantine Beach offers a wonderful golf experience combining modern amenities and historic grandeur.
Nestled between Ocean City and Wildwood, along the Jersey coast, lies Avalon Golf Club. Measuring from 6325 to 4924 yards, Avalon is a test for all skill levels. At Avalon, players must contend with narrow fairways, an abundance of water, and the most prominent feature, the wind. Being so close to the shore, the wind might very well come into play on certain days. Remember though, a breeze can be a help or a hindrance, so play smart and savor the moment when the salty air wisps by your face and an occasional gull flies by. The management and staff look forward to serving you throughout the year and welcome the opportunity when you may personally visit and play our course.
Open daily to the public year-round from dawn to dusk. Avalon Golf Club is the perfect spot at the Jersey Shore for your group to play, golf, dine and enjoy themselves for the day.

What most golfers talk about after they play Sand Barrens is the unique personality of our layout with more than 100 acres of sand, in our bunkers and sweeping waste areas.
These sandy stretches, set against luxuriant fairways that could almost be greens, are a dazzling eye-catcher that makes you yearn to grab a club. We offer a remarkable target experience that you will have a tough time finding elsewhere. “All you can see from the tee boxes at times are bunkers and waste areas… but the fairways are very generous, and the traps shouldn’t be difficult to avoid.”
And there are five sets of tee boxes in order to give every player a chance to feel comfortable at the Sand Barrens.
All this golfing excitement came to be when the lead designer on our 27 holes, Dana Fry of Hurdzan/Fry, discovered a layer of sand while trees were being cleared for fairways in the winter of 1996. A more traditional course had been in the works on this site lined with evergreens and oaks. But suddenly Fry had a new idea. The result was Sand Barrens and its dramatic bunkers and undulating greens. To ensure outstanding conditions, even the rough was sodded. A premium blend of bentgrasses adorns the tees and greens and the rolling fairways. “Golf here is tough, but very fair. Most of the hazards are more visual than actual. You really don’t have to be a great golfer to get a good score here.
