So, having my Bachelor party in AC at the end of August. My brother is figuring out the Casino/Hotel situation. I will try and surf casino pier or one of the other AC spots right out front while i'm there, if there is swell.
Ive never been to A/C. Though. Have a few questions....
First of all... Is all of AC ghetto? Or is the North West end, over by the bayside a more family/residential area?
Also, we want to Golf mid-morning while we are out there... Are there any golfer on here who can tell me about any cool City courses that are up there? We all shoot in the low 90s and high 80s, so we are ok, but dont require Torrey Pines... Just looking to have fun....
I know there are a ton of jersey heads on here, so I figured I would ask...
Where should a brother golf, and are there any things that I HAVE TO DO while im there?
AC is def ghetto. I've had my car broken into near the projects w/ a brick and had a bunch of stuff stolen on a frigid November day. It was not a pleasant experience.
Casino pier is not in AC. You're thinking of the gokart pier, which def. the most blown up spot in the city.
There is some golf i think near the mariot in pomona?
Stay in the showboat. there are some good spots along that area and to the north.
Yes, all of AC is ghetto. The only nice things in the city are the casinos, and they aren't even that nice.

Right outside of AC, there are a ton of golf courses. I don't know much about golf, but there are a lot of nice ones on the stretch of Rt. 9.

For Golf - Harbor Pines in EHT
Park your car on the shady street, hide your valuables, jam wax over the meter reader, give the pan-handler a quarter so he doesnt break your window for one, walk up toward the boardwalk passing by the nastiest dumpster in the tri-state region (you all know the one). Once on the boardwalk watch out for seagull **** (big shoobie french fry feeding area), head to one of three creepy looking piers (while simultaneously field questions from intrigued tourist) and pick one of the crowded peaks. Oh and watch out for broken glass and hypodermic needles on the beach while walking out. Other than that, its a killer wave.
Bare Exposures is BYOB - so bring your biggest fishing cooler. After your done paying for $10 drinks and dealing with sweaty fist pumpers head to the Irish Pub on St. James (your 3-5am stop) for $1.90 pints and cheap food. If the short Irish Guy is tendin bar tell him your a Philly fan and your set (he's won't serve you if your a Mets fan). If your still kicken when the sun rises, head to the Chelsea Pub for bloody mary's and pool.
Greentree is about 15 mins inland, and is probably your best bang for you buck. Seaview is also located about 15 mins away if you wanna drop the extra $$$$.
Seaview Marriott has 2 really beautiful championship golf courses, but as Kokopelli stated, they are really pricey. Rates $99 weekday and $109 weekend for this time of year.
I would have to say tropicana is my favorite casino because there is a ton of stuff to do. AC is kinda getto, I have seen worst . but it's not the nicest place. I dont really really surf down in ac, but i can tell you that casino pier is not in ac it's like an hour or more north. Golfing, Sea oaks in tuckerton is a nice course, but is like a 30-45 minute drive north and is expensive.
