The Links at Brigantine Beach Golf Course is among the
state’s most historically significant golf courses with a history that dates
back to 1927 when it was constructed as a part of the island’s master plan.
When originally designed the course was unique in the Northeast due to its
Scottish links design by Wayne Stiles and Jon Van Kleek offering
breathtaking bay views, native marsh and gently rolling, nearly treeless
In 1989 was purchased and renamed Brigantine Golf Links
resulting in the renovation of all golf fairways and the construction of a
new clubhouse. In July of 2002 was resold, this time to the City of
Brigantine and placed under the management of Meadowbrook Golf, Inc. At
this time the name was again changed to the Links at Brigantine Beach.
As rumor has it,
the then Brigantine Country Club was the venue for “Old Pros”
from the 1920s such as Walter Hagen and Harry Vardon, to play a few practice
rounds of golf on this unique links course prior to boarding the boat to
sail to Europe to play in the British Open.
