Press Release, Gloucester County
Pitman – The Pitman Golf Course has been named Best Golf Course in the annual Best of South Jersey contest of 2020.
“This accomplishment is indicative of the hard work that has been put in to maintain the course for our golfers,” said Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger. “Our course stretches over 230 acres, has 18 holes with a driving range and a history dating back to 1927.”
The “Pitman Golf Club” opened on April 1, 1927 as a nine-hole course. It was not until January 1994 that the Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders acquired the course and began operations on January 1, 1995.
This public facility now has a regulation 18-hole golf course, a practice putting green, a driving range, a full-service clubhouse restaurant and bar that also provides excellent catering services.
“Our course continues to grow and reflect the beauty of Gloucester County,” said Freeholder Jim Lavender, liaison to the Pitman Golf Course.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the course has implemented safety precautions to allow golfers to continue play safely.
