Philadelphia & Atlantic City Best Golf Courses

Best golf courses around Philadelphia & Atlantic City

Philadelphia to Atlantic City by train or bus takes about an hour and a half. While the former is known for its rich history and museums, the latter is a casino paradise with a world-famous boardwalk. Both offer a good choice of public golf courses and private clubs.

Philly's Glen Mills golf course is one of Pennsylvania's best, a championship layout with a number of challenging holes. Another excellent links-style layout that tests your overall game is Charleston Springs Golf Course, which retains most of its natural terrain to add interest to every hole.

Atlantic City is also home to a number of top-rated public golf courses, all well-maintained open layouts that don't disappoint. They include Vineyard Golf's fast and challenging greens (plus its resort's winery tours) and the popular Sand Barrens Golf Club.
