Twisted Dune Golf Club offers a challenging taste of Scottish links golf in Egg Harbor Township

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Playing Twisted Dune Golf Club feels like taking a mini-vacation to Scotland.

The traditional links layout is virtually treeless, in keeping with Scottish seaside golf courses, while providing a different option from the abundant forested layouts that line the Jersey Shore. The lack of trees may make the golf course more forgiving but that also means it is subject to the prevailing winds.

True to its name, Twisted Dune winds across a rugged landscape of deep ravines and tall grassy hills. The terrain is ideal for golf, but it's visually stunning as well with sandy dunes framed by fescue that contrast beautifully against the lush, undulating greens and contoured fairways.

The elevation changes are dramatic and the golf course is made even more challenging by the presence of more than 100 cavernous sand traps and bunkers. Water hazards come into play on a few holes as well. The ninth is the first of two consecutive water holes that both feature two ponds along the right side.

Twisted Dune Golf Club is formidable, but five sets of tees makes it accessible to players of all skill levels.

Born and raised in the former Soviet Union, photographer Oleg Volovik moved to the United States in 1992 and now lives with his wife and two children in Los Angeles. He joined the TravelGolf editorial team in 2010. Originally graduated with a Masters Degree in Civil Engineering he continued to dedicate his time and energy to his passion for visual arts and photography. Oleg has extensive experience in fine arts, fashion, event, architecture and journalistic photography. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Moscow, where he also taught a master class, sponsored by Hewlett-Packard, in April 2007. He may be a novice golfer, but Oleg always wears a white leather glove during photo sessions. "Golf photography is my own 'game' with the beauty of nature and human creativity.

The Bay Course at Seaview Resort in Galloway Township is the home course of the ShopRite LPGA Classic and is probably the better known of the two golf courses at the resort. The Donald Ross design, which dates to 1914, has undergone several renovations. While the course isn't right on the ocean, it is on the bay across from Atlantic City. You get a good view of the city from the second green of the no. 1 handicap hole, a 434-yard par 4 that usually plays into the wind.
