2007 Minerals Youth & Adult Leaderboard Shootout

Monday, October 12, 2009

The beautiful Atlantic City Country Club, which was established in 1897 and has etched itself into golf history as the birthplace of the golf terms “birdie” and “eagle” in 1903, lies along the scenic bay front lands with breathtaking views of the Atlantic City skyline.


The fabled course has received numerous accolades throughout the years as it has played host to six USGA Championships and other major golfing events,  including the home to the 1st PGA Senior Tour event in 1980.   Some of the game’s greatest names have played Atlantic City CC including legendary golfers Johnny J. McDermott, Sammy Snead, Howard Everitt, Babe Didrikson Zaharias and Arnold PalmerIn keeping with its rich historical tradition, at the end of each day, a bell is rung at the timeless clubhouse dating from the earlier practice in the early 1900s of ringing the bell to warn golfers that the last trolley of the day was preparing to leave for Atlantic City.


Located on approximately 170 scenic acres, the original course layout stood proud for nearly 30 years. In 1925 famed architect William Flynn redesigned the course which lasted for over 70 years before Tom Doak renovated the course in 1998 to recapture the original design.


The Atlantic City CC has also won more than its share of honors having been named by Golf Styles Magazine as one of America’s 40 best resort courses, by Golf & Travel Magazine as one of the Nation’s Best 40 Resort Courses, by the National Golf Course Owners Association – NJ Chapter as the Best Private Course, Golf Week Magazine as one of the Top 100 Classic Golf Courses in America and the #1 Public/Daily Fee Course in New Jersey and the #7 ranked course in New Jersey.
