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.

he 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.

  • Course seemed to be in pretty good shape; especially following a heavy rain the night before. I played this course many times back in the early 2000s when it was a baby (opened in 2002). Thought it was a great course. Most holes were in good-great, only a few in "meh" condition (weeds, bare ground, etc). Overall, greens were in great shape. Rough wasn't too long. Fairways were good. Tee boxes had some issues, but nothing to lose sleep over. Course was worth the price. Perhaps a minor step back from when it first opened, but glad to see the course is still a quality one.
  • Nice track, well maintained and very well marked. I enjoyed it much more this second time around. The best thing about it was the ranger who spoke to the group ahead of us about slow play. It was actually was effective. Rangers at Ballamor and Mays Landing are USELESS. so this was a 5 star event for me.
