Shore Gate Golf Club is among the newer courses at the Jersey Shore, Shore Gate has quickly developed a reputation for excellence, earning status as “#2 Public Course in New Jersey” by Golf Digest, 2006-2007. Carved from 245 acres of pristine forest, only a few miles from the ocean and just south of Atlantic City, Shore Gate Golf Club serves up a unique combination of parkland and links elements in a dramatic sculptured, undulating landscape. It’s an enjoyable and formidable challenge to golfers of every level. Designed by the world renowned Fream & Dale Golf Course Architects of Santa Rosa, California. Fream, a veteran California based architect whose courses are located in some 60 countries, let out all the stops in designing this, his first East Coast course, and he took great care to preserve the wetlands and other natural endowments of the untouched parcel which once sat adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. Pines, oaks, maple, holly and laurel beautifully frame the entire course. Seven lakes, 88 bunkers, vertical dunes and ocean breezes offer additional visual and strategic elements that put a premium on accuracy. The course features five sets of tee markers on each hole, enabling all players to custom design the Shore Gate experience according to ability. Total yardage ranges from 5,200 to 7,227. In addition to its recent statewide honor, Shore Gate was named among the 10 “Best New Upscale Public Courses” by Golf Digest and earned a place on GOLF Magazine’s list of “Top 10 You Can Play”. Put Shore Gate on your list to play!

Experts Review of Atlantic City Country Club
  Wow!, that's what I said to myself the first time I played Shore Gate. If you take a closer look at the slope and course rating you will realize it's level of difficulty, this is one of the most demanding golf courses in the Atlantic City area / South Jersey.  However, it's a golf course that you must put on your list, it's ranked #2 in the State of NJ by Golf Digest.  The course conditions are always perfect, be prepared to 3 putt once in while on the large undulating greens.  Who new that Atlantic City has this many great golf courses?  Say hello to Harry Bittner and tell him the AC Hotel Experts sent you!

Shore Gate is located near the Ocean and Beaches, but sure isn’t a day at the beach. “We’ve had about 90,000 rounds here and nobody has broken par from any tee box,” said head professional David Faught. “We even hosted a Player Ability Test for PGA professional hopefuls from the white tees and the low round was 74.

“What makes the course challenging is the diversity of the golf holes,” continues, Faught. “Everything is visually intimidating. You can’t get a rhythm or feel on this course because the holes are so different. If you’re used to right-to-left shots the next hole is left-to-right. Then there’s a lay-up hole. Then there’s a long hole. You have to be able to place the ball exactly where you want it. So, course management is the quintessential point of playing here. If you’re not disciplined enough to use course management, you won’t score well here.”

Unless you frequent California or 60 other countries outside the United States, you might never have the opportunity to play a Ron Fream design. Fream is known for his dramatic, memorable layouts and Shore Gate is no exception. Included in this parkland-style course are 180 sand areas, some up to 10 feet deep and often located on the outside of the mounds that line the holes. Instead of one or two signature holes, Faught says there are, “eighteen totally distinctive golf holes,” yet the 648-yard, par 5 ninth hole at Shore Gate Golf Club in Ocean View, NJ receives a good deal of attention.

Like the ninth hole at Shore Gate, Faught says people play here because it “beats them up.” “The first time they play here their reaction is, ‘what just happened?’” But it’s so picturesque and serene that they don’t complain too much about how bad their score is. To me, as a golf professional, that is very unusual.”
