If you are a fan of history, Atlantic City has its fair share. There is a little fictional show based in their rich mob history on HBO called Boardwalk Empire after all. You might want to spend some time experiencing some of the interesting sites of yesteryear that A has to offer, and when you can do so while playing golf and eating food all the better!
Start with one of the oldest golf courses in the county, The Atlantic City Country Club. This historic course has hosted some of the most famous golfers in the country as well as six of the USGA Major Championships. It is also the birthplace of the term “birdie” so if you use the term during your round of golf, you can know that that term founds its way into your vocabulary through The Atlantic City Country Club itself. Reminiscent of the courses in Scotland and Ireland, The Atlantic City Country Club is rated one of the best public courses in New Jersey.
Now that you have worked up an appetite on the green, it may be time to relax and enjoy some pub food and beer to unwind. The World Famous Irish Pub may be the historic destination. Originally a bootlegger’s pub during the depression, The World Famous Irish Pub stays true to its roots today with a traditional Irish pub atmosphere, and excellent pub fair. They have been called America’s Greatest Pub by several major magazines. Experience the history and enjoy the food for yourself.
Of course, Atlantic City also has a museum and other historic destinations to enjoy as well. If you are looking for a little history while you enjoy your golf vacation, these two destinations are a must see for you.
