Don't listen to this list. So bad. Great Gorge better than Ballyowen? Ballyowen is 25?!?! Should be top 3. Bowling Green is good but should not be top 20. Same with Berkshire and Farmstead. Twisted Dunes is top 6 in my opinion. Where's Hominy hill? Worst list ever.

Where is Hominy Hill??? The majority of these are NOT top 25 courses. The Atlantic City Country Club is doing a great job of pricing itself out of existence,

What an awful list! The people reviewing these courses wouldn't know a good course if it bit them in the ass! Ballyowen 25? Twisted Dune 22, really? both top 10 courses in the state. Berkshire is also a top 10 course. Get Bowling Green, and Farmstead off this list. Fox Hollow isn't a top 25 course in the state, so take that away too. Knob Hill is too high. What about courses like Crystal Springs, Wild Turkey, Black Bear, Royce Brook, Hominy Hill, Charleston Springs? You might as well throw East Orange Golf Course on this list in the top 5, thats how bad this is lol.
