This is a great track. I got to play there last October as a guest - 5 times. As a 72-year old, it was tough even from the senior tees but has some holes that are really fun to play.

This is both a beautiful and challenging course. Tee Times are definitely a recommendation. Like other courses in Atlantic County, the greens fees are a bit pricey, but for this course it's worth it.

Perfect accomodations for our large family. Grwat idea for those times when you just dont want to cook on the holiday. Kids had an amazing time doing the Egg Hunt and my son won the golden egg.... yay Cole! Always a great day at Grwate Bay. Membership indeed has its privileges.

My brother in law was married here and also had his rehearsal dinner here. Food was outstanding, service was wonderful and overall they did a fantastic job. The wedding party arrived 3 hrs before the ceremony to do pictures and such, they had food, bartender, waitstaff, all there to assist us. Hope to attend another function there!

First of all, we had 16 golfers starting at 11:00. The driving range wasn't open till 11:00. Why is that? The bar wasn't open till 11:30. Why is that? Seems to me if your trying to attract golf outings, you need to have the cocktails flowing and a place to warm up. Anyway, the golf course was in great condition... More

We have been house members for two years -- sadly, we don't play golf :( Could not be happier with our membership. Lovely dining areas, excellent food , friendly staff. This area of the Jersey shore is very popular and can get quite busy during the summer months so it is nice to relax at beautiful Greate Bay.

Greate Bay, not so much. We ate in the bar after a round of golf. The building from the outside makes u think it's gonna be grand. The bar was from the 1980's. the food and service were mediocre at best. Just moved to the area.....would I join this club?? Um, no!!!!

The golf course is a nice course, playable and staff very friendly. Dining is wonderful as well. The Pub offers great drinks at reasonable prices as is the food, not fancy but good quality. The hubby and I like the Park Room as well, get a little dressed up and enjoy a nice dining experience. Love that they bring complimentary... More

Day makes the best "Perfect Storm", so much so that I carried her recipe with me to Florida and only one out of perhaps 20 bartenders could make the drink properly.
