The 13th hole at the Atlantic City Country Club, recently opened to the public.
Tuesday, February 20, 2007

Not many new public courses can claim a champions' roster that includes Walter Travis, Babe Zaharias and Don January or claim the first American to win the U.S. Open as its former head pro (John J. McDermott). Then again, the Atlantic City Country Club is no ordinary track. The layout dates to 1897 and, for most of its 109 years, it was strictly private. Following a Tom Doak renovation in 1999, the course served as a playground for high-rollers staying at one of the Caesars-owned casinos, but earlier this year new owner Harrah's unlocked the club's gates to the public.
