A well designed nine hole course has multiple advantages over larger courses. At the Big Little 9 you will find the perfect layout with imaginative features and hazards. Its nine holes take less time to play than 18 holes and allows you to have a great day of golf and still have time for the beach or boardwalk.

Want a longer game? Two distinct tee-boxes per hole offer a great 18 hole course experience within nine holes. For the environment, less land is required, therefore less intensively maintained grass, less fertilizer, and less water for irrigation.

What our golfers say

Course is really nice, and relaxing, just like a private course. It has hard but easy holes with the option to start from a long tee or a short tee. Almost Every hole you have to shoot over water if you’re playing from the long tees. Pro Shop lady was really nice her name is April. The golf carts were good as well. They have events almost every week during the on season. I recommend this course 100% we will definitely be back.

Kyle Talley

One of the best par 3 courses around. 9
holes but i believe they let you play 18 if you want. Theyre under new management and it’s showing. I played here before it was Big Little 9 so i can see the improvements since. They have two tee boxes on each hole offering multiple distances. Water is in play on almost every hole. I recommend for beginners through advanced golfers. It’s a fun round.

Bryan Miniaci 

An absolute gem of a course. The layout combines scenery and challenge seamlessly. You’ll want to bring your A game. The water hazards are numerous. Those newer to the game can always tee off from the easy tee box. Top notch service too. Everyone was friendly on staff. I’m especially appreciative to Cooper. I was on hole 6 and storms were about to hit. He was out checking the greens and offered me a ride back to the pro shop. Then he kindly comped me a walking round of 9 since I didn’t get a chance to finish. Fantastic experience, 5 stars all the way.
