A view of the 4th green at Atlantic City Country Club

The yearly Golf Advisor state best-of lists are compiled by analyzing the ratings and reviews submitted by members of our community throughout the year. We use our Golf Advisor Index logic that weights newer reviews and combine it with a course's weighted subcategory averages. Reviews from trusted and active reviewers are weighted heavier than inactive members.

Courses must offer public access and have received at least one review in 2018 to be eligible for this year's list.

BALTUSROL GOLF CLUB DOING CORRUPTION, INTIMIDATING & CAUSING FINANCIAL DAMAGES TO THE RESIDENTS IN COLLUSION WITH SPRINGFIELD TWP. UNDER THE CONTROL OF DEMOCRATS.

PLANNING BOARD CHAIRMAN MADE TERRORIST THREATS TO THE RESIDENT OVER THE PHONE FOR FILING COMPLANT.

This club under its Manager Kevin Vitale with mob mentality is flooding the back yards of the residents for almost 2 decades by not having a proper “Storm Water Management” system. Springfield Building Dept. & Planning Board despite complaints on numerous occasion are least bothered. Especially the Planning Board can flush the town’s Building Laws in the gutter if the Builder or the organization is too big and it can benefit them directly or indirectly. For 2 prominent Departments of Springfield Twp. Golf Club is a preferred destination after or an early retirement for a job. Its Manager Kevin Vitale can punish the resident mob style if they dare to make a complaint about flooding in their backyard due to the Club’s negligence & not installing required drain lines & pumps to manage the “Storm Water” due to rain & melting of the snow. He can arrange to leave a 100 feet long, over 3 feet wide and 5 feet deep crater on their property. Planning Board & Building Department do not take any action against the Club for harassing & intimidating the resident. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Money-Mart-723236414360286/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2893338144016758
