Going to Atlantic City in mid-October 2019. Can anyone give feedback on course conditions among the following courses: Ballamor, Twisted Dune, Seaview Bay?

    I personally enjoyed Seaview Bay course a lot! Not overly long but tricky and fun track.

    I would just call each one and figure out when they punched the greens. From my experience, it takes a solid 2 weeks for the greens to be playable. I moved away from the area and I'm amazed with how fast Bethpage greens recover. They show no signs of aeration even though I know they just punched them a week prior. Ballamor, Seaview and Shore Gate have always been in good shape but from what I remember, the conditions of Twisted Dunes deteriorated but I last played it 3 years ago, maybe they bounced back.

    Play AC Country Club and Seaview Bay. Both are old style courses and always have good conditions. You wont be disappointed.

    I have a buddy that played Twisted Dunes over the summer and he loved it. Its one of my favorites down there, but I haven't played it in 5 or so years (we were rained out last year). Of course, I don't think you could go wrong with any of the courses mentioned in the OP (although Hidden Creek and Galloway are easily the two best courses down there if you have the cash to splurge).
