The golf course at McCullough's Emerald Golf Links is an 18-hole, public course that is situated within minutes of Atlantic City. Designer, Stephen Kay decided to pay tribute to famous European golf courses such as St. Andrew's in his design. The European influences are reflected in the open fairways, tricky strong winds, and undulating greens. The golf course also boasts the region's only 100-feet elevation changes.

McCullough's Emerald Golf Links' signature hole is the seventh; it is also the course's most unique. The hole features hazards like large bunkers and wide, rolling fairways. Water hazards also come into play on five holes. The acclaimed golf course is challenging but it does provide a truly unique golfing experience.

Fun Round

Very friendly staff with a fun links layout which takes cues from famous courses in the uk. Most challenging are the fast greens but overall plenty playable.

Green light to the Emerald

Played this track a couple times 9 and more years ago. It’s better than I remembered it. Interesting, fun links-like layout with some significant elevation changes. Greens were in great shape, fairways and bunkers were good.
Nice indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant.
I have to give it 5 out of five stars.

Elsa doused her Emerald Links

Played this course after a strong night out in AC and the day after Elsa drenched this area and there were lakes where there shouldn't have been water, drainage was a problem. Either way, great layout, and challenging course,
lots of fun .
