- Highly regarded Midwest architect Ray Hearn took to the environs like a rabbit to a briar patch, peeling back acres of turf to expose vast, Pine Valley-style waste areas and dozens of stupendous bunkers.
Sea Oaks Country Club
If anybody deserves a break, it’s the folks on the Atlantic Seaboard. I tip my golf cap to you all for bouncing up and dusting yourselves off after Sandy’s vicious right hook—and for helping your friends, neighbors and perfect strangers find their footing, too. No place was pummeled worse than the Jersey Shore, but one of the region’s best tracks took a superstorm lickin’ and kept on tickin’. Let’s shower a little love on them, shall we?
You’re invited on an 18-hole tour of Sea Oaks Golf Club in Little Egg Harbor for just $40, saving you up to 40% off retail. The deal includes cart, and it’s valid Monday through Friday after 10:00 a.m., weekends after 11:00 a.m., until April 19, 2013 (excluding holidays and holiday weekends).
Despite its location just north of where Sandy blustered ashore, Sea Oaks reopened just a few days later. Hey, it’s hard to keep a good course down—and this is a really good course. Highly regarded Midwest architect Ray Hearn took to the environs like a rabbit to a briar patch, peeling back acres of turf to expose vast, Pine Valley-style waste areas and dozens of stupendous bunkers. Indeed, dodging sand is the primary objective at Sea Oaks. It helps mightily if you can also put a little shape on your shots to match the serpentine windings of Hearn’s fairways.
Two things you can always count on at Sea Oaks: superb conditions and a stiff challenge. Five tee sets are nicely spaced between 5,150 and 6,950 yards, with the back markers posting a stout 139 Slope Rating. Of course, you’ve already weathered Sandy’s worst, so I suspect Sea Oaks will seem like a walk in the park—and I bet you could use one right about now. Go ahead, treat yourself. You’ve earned a little R&R.
