McCullough’s Emerald Golf Links Too Cool To Miss

October 25th 2013 | Posted by

Stephen Kay, golf course architect, designed the beautiful course we have today known as McCullough’s Emerald Golf Links. Kay gets his inspirations from other courses located in France, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Ireland. He claims McCullough’s was a challenge because of all the trees and greens. The Atlantic City skyline can be seen at the 11th and 12th holes; they are the highest point in the county.

The 7th hole resembles Alister MacKenzie’s original design of Augusta National and Cypress Point. MacKenzie entered a hole design contest and although his design was never actually built,Kay recreated it in McCullough’s course. However, Kay’s toughest hole is the 16th and it is surprisingly the shortest one. Find out what this hole resembles by reading the article online. After your done playing, get a bite to eat at the Library III that recently opened inside the clubhouse.
