Any list of best public courses in NJ that doesn't include Atlantic City CC or Shore Gate isn't very credible. Same holds true for Architects Club, even though it's located in remote part of the state.

Atlantic CC has only three reviews on our site, so it didn't qualify (but all three reviews are 5 stars). Architects on the other hand seemed to have a fairly average year in 2015 ratings-wise.

Most golfers love Twisted Dune Golf Club. The course continues to rank among the top three public golf courses in New Jersey by almost every golf publication. The manmade mounds, irregular-shaped bunkers and the tall fescue give it that "links" look.
