  The Course You Have to Play When You Visit The Shore!

From the very first tee at Sand Barrens Golf Club in Swainton, NJ., you’ll understand what all the accolades showered on this extraordinary course really represent to you as a golfer. As you travel our lush green fairways, you know this will be an incredible round of 18 holes. You’re embarking on one of the greatest golfing adventures on the Jersey Shore at Sand Barrens Golf Club, one that will stun you with its natural beauty of stretches of sand flashing against a backdrop of emerald green.  You’re going to find unusual fairways, bunkers and sandy areas that will test your irons, your woods and your strategies on hole after wonderful hole.  For year after year in its short lifespan, our three nines, created by the team of Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry, have won honors and high rankings from such publications as Golf Digest, GolfWeek, Golf Magazine and the Zagat Golf Guide. The reason is simple: This is a first-class resort-style layout that will be almost impossible for you to find anywhere else for many miles around. Our courses were designed with five sets of tees to accommodate every level of player. Everyone from novice to seasoned veteran can experience the excitement of Sand Barrens. Sand Barrens is a must-play, 27 holes of pure bliss, that you need to experience for yourself. After you play one 18-hole combination, you’ll want to come back to play another. Our semi-private club is conveniently located between Avalon and Cape May, and we’re easily accessible off the Garden State Parkway. And if you plan to stay in the area for a while, think about becoming a member with us as well.

Experts Review of Atlantic City Country Club
  Where should I begin? From the awe inspiring clubhouse to 3 incredible nine hole layouts, Sand Barrens Golf Club truly is a gem at the Jersey Shore.  As referenced by it's name, there are plenty of sand traps and waste bunkers, you may want to work on your bunker play before you arrive.  I love the oversized greens, they're always soft, receptive & fast.  Just a short drive down the Garden State Parkway from Atlantic City and all other South Jersey shore points.  Check out the Awards & Recognitions below.
