(Gloucestercitynews.net)(October 16, 2019)--Golf lovers in Gloucester County can choose from several beautiful courses that offer not only excellent golfing experiences but amenities that provide exceptional dining and other entertainment.
Here are reviews of three of the best courses that Gloucester County has to offer the golfer in your family.
Pitman Golf Course
One of the staples of Gloucester County golf is the Pitman Golf Course. Originally designed in 1927, the Pitman continues to charm local golfers with its relatively short layout that presents plenty of opportunity for exciting risk-reward golf.
Affordable for the entire family or for a large group, Pitman is always in great condition with wide fairways and soft, smooth greens that will keep your putts rolling true. After your round, the on-site cafe offers a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a post-round beverage while recapping your achievements on the course.
A real treasure of the Gloucester County golfing scene is the Scotland Run Golf Club in Williamstown. Much like you can depend on a good dog, this links-style course always offers local golfers a unique experience not offered anywhere else in the area.
The course provides magnificent golf on an 18-hole layout sculpted around human-made lakes and larger than life sand traps.
Off the course, Scotland Run can keep your swing in shape during the colder months via some time with their new simulator league that offers state-of-the-art simulators for patrons to enjoy. Another perk of the course is the Highlander Pub & Grill that has a terrific brunch option on Sundays.
Westwood Golf Club
Touting itself as “South Jersey’s Best Kept Secret in Golf,” the Westwood Golf Club is an absolute blast to play with a group as the course is well maintained. Playing just shy of 6,000 yards, Westwood provides golfers with the opportunity to reach back and challenge the course with long drives.
With affordable golf and discounts for first-responders, Westwood provides a wonderful day on the links for golfers of all skill levels and backgrounds. And once your final putt finds the cup on the 18th hole, don’t forget to stop by McCalley’s Tavern, a nice post-round spot to enjoy a sandwich and a drink or two.
