Sand Barrens: the only 27-hole course in Southern New Jersey, has plenty of bunkers and even more sand, just as its name implies. Each 9-hole course — North, South and West — is a par 36. Here’s a hint: the South Nine is the prettiest, the North is the toughest — but ends up at the on a par 3 over the lake to a plantation-style clubhouse and the West is everyone’s favorite. Take advantage of the course’s ParView system to find your way from tee to green which also offers a video display showing the lay of the land at each hole, yardage, pin placement, par and handicap information. 609-465-3555 – 1765 Route 9, Swainton.

The 9th hole from the black tees is an amazing 648 yards around a lake. The 13th, another par 5, features elevation changes and bunkers. Consider renting a GPS for accurate yardage readings if you don’t carry one in your bag. The par 72 course was designed by Ronald Fream and David Dale, golf course architects whose courses are located around the world. 609-624-TEES – 35 School House Lane, off Route 9, Ocean View.
