Big Little 9 – A Blueprint for the Future

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

One of the things I love most about Big Little 9 is that I can play a seriously fun round of golf with my buddies and still meet my kids on the beach.


A tournament worthy experience in a cozy package. Perfect for the family golf outing with kids or the quick round before or after beach or work. Challenging, beautiful and fair. An unparalleled par 3 experience.​


One of the most beautiful Par 3 courses I have ever played. Challenging for the novice and an exceptional practice course for the seasoned golfer.



Big Little 9 was recently featured on an episode of the podcast “Driver off the Deck”.

“The course is locate just outside and Wildwood NJ and welcomes golfers of all skill levels. Between the course being byob, out door games, coffee bar and let’s not forget about the golf, this place has a little something for everyone. If you have played the course, hit us up on instagram at @dotd.pod and let us know what yo think of “The Happiest Course on Earth”.”
