4 Stars – Golf Digest’s “Places to Play”
Located just minutes from Atlantic City, New Jersey, McCullough’s Emerald Golf Links offers players a distinctly different Irish-Scottish golfing experience. With wide-open fairways, tricky winds, true undulating greens, and remarkable grass mounds and bunkers, players will be both challenged and fascinated.
Architect Stephen Kay designed 17 holes after famed European courses. The signature 7th hole, is a tribute to architect Alister Mckensie, who won an award for the design in 1914, but never had the opportunity to build it. It features a three-acre waste area and an island fairway 160 yards wide. The 18-hole, 6,600-yard par 71 layout is a unique tribute to famed European courses including Saint Andrews, Carnoustie, Prestwick, Gleneagles, Turnberry and others. With water on five holes and the region’s only 100-foot elevation changes, players can enjoy tremendous vistas, along with challenging play, reminding them of the true British Isles’ golf experience.
In addition to an outstanding golf course, McCullough’s Emerald Links also offers a pro shop stocked with the latest apparel and equipment and a friendly grille room and banquet facility.
