The Traveling Golfer heads to the mountains of Northern New Jersey to experience six premium golf courses and high-quality accommodations at the luxurious Crystal Springs Resort. Recognized as one of the finest golf facilities in the northeastern United States, it’s also considered the most challenging as well. The 7 Hole deemed “Wild Turkey” is only a par 3 but challenges the golfer to drive across a lake. Despite measuring just over 6,800 yards from the championship tees, the unique character of the club can be attributed to designer Robert von Hagge of Houston, Texas. After the limestone quarrying operations concluded in 1929, the site filled with water, forming the many natural springs that now dot the property. Crystal Springs Resort gets its name from the clear waters at the 11th hole, which has a 80 ft. drop from where you tee off. If you’re looking for a challenge, the Crystal Springs Resort is worth looking into.
