Avalon Golf Club sits between Ocean City and Wildwood along the New Jersey coastline. It was built by architect Bob Hendricks, who also designed Upper Perk Golf Course in Pennsburg, Pa., which opened to the public in 1971. The par 71, 18-hole course measures 6,325 yards from the blue tees and features several hills, tree-lined fairways, moderately-sized greens and a plethora of wind and water. Eight natural lakes can be a factor on 12 holes. An abundance of wildlife can also be seen throughout the course. Nicknamed “The Gem of the Shore,” Avalon Golf Club offers three par 3s on the back nine that can prove challenging, particularly the 166-yard 17th hole, which requires players to clear a lake and to avoid multiple greenside bunkers. Each hole has four sets of tees for various skill levels. About 10 years ago, four holes underwent renovations to accommodate the insertion of 250 townhomes around the course’s perimeter. The club added a new pro shop and banquet facility in the winter of 2008.
