Avalon Golf is an 18-hole championship course that artistically blends various hole personalities to create an experience that dazzles the senses. With holes measuring from 6325 to 4924 yards, Avalon can be considered a fair yet tough test for golfers of all skill levels. The tees have a color coding system indicating yardage. A blue tee totals 6325 yards, a white tee totals 5896 yards, a gold tee totals 5239 yards, and a red tee totals 4924 yards. While other local course layouts are based on target shots, the layout of Avalon Golf Club is more traditional. According to Head PGA professional Ted Wenner, if you hit straight and long, you score well. If you stray, you pay. At Avalon, players must contend with narrow fairways, an abundance of water, and the course’s most prominent feature, the wind. The country-club conditions of the green along with the course’s eight natural lakes and abundant wildlife make for a scenic game.
Post-match, be sure to stop by Avalon Golf Club’s extensive pro shop, the largest in South Jersey. The shop offers a wide selection of equipment, apparel, and accessories. The latest selections from Ashworth, Cutter & Buck, Life is Good, Greg Norman, Titleist as well as many other famous brands are available.
Adjacent to the impressive pro shop, the Avalon Links Restaurant at Avalon Golf Club overlooks the scenic 18th hole and is open for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays and lunch and dinner all week long. An extensive menu features full-course entrees, tasty appetizers, and a fine selection of choice meats, seafood and poultry dishes.
