Crystal Springs Resort – One of America’s Prettiest Fall Golf Destinations
Within 30 minutes of drive time Northwest and away from Newark and the Manhattan skyline of New York City, the land formations begin to change dramatically entering the Kittatinny and Appalachian mountain ranges.
Nestled among those mountains is one of the largest golf resorts in the world – Crystal Springs Resort. Over the next month the hardwoods in the region will turn to splendid hues of scarlet, rust, gold and orange, creating one of the most beautiful fall golf destinations in the country.
September and October at Crystal Springs is a feast for the senses as the changing colors and fresh crisp air enhance an irresistible setting for a great combination of golf, luxurious accommodations, and amenities.
With a collection of six scenic golf courses, two hotels including the highly acclaimed Grand Cascades Lodge, two spas, multiple dining options including the award winning Restaurant Latour and Wine Cellar, as well as activities such as clay shooting, biking, fly-fishing, and more, Crystal Springs offers a spectacular fall golf experience unmatched in the region.
The No. 1 public course in New Jersey, Ballyowen, leads the way by offering a rich 360-degree color view over the beautiful Walkill River, and Wild Turkey provides multiple scenic views from its opening hole, as well as the 10th tee, 18th green and other areas along the course that showcase sights up to 40 miles over the mountain ranges.
Complimenting Ballyowen and Wild Turkey is one of the toughest courses in America, the memorable Crystal Springs course. The course meanders in and around a spectacular limestone quarry offering a striking contrast in color with the surrounding foliage. Black Bear is also one of the more popular courses in the region. It drapes along the Hamburg Mountain landscape providing one of the prettiest scenic fall views found anywhere.
Crystal Springs’ innovative nine-hole courses, Cascades and Minerals, both offer scenic color views, and caters to all levels of players. Golfers enjoy a variety of tee positions including junior tees, large cups, Golf Boards, Golf Bikes, and the option to play Footgolf.
Golfers looking for a destination that combines great golf, lodging, and spectacular fall color views, then make sure to check out Crystal Springs Resort. For the next month through October 13, the resort is celebrating “Golftoberfest” combining the best of fall golf with traditional Bavarian delights such as, bratwurst, knockwurst, weisswurst, German pretzels and potato leek soup paired with German beer at the Halfway Houses.
Whether it's a buddy trip, couples retreat, or girlfriend getaway, it will be a truly one-of-a-kind fall golf getaway at Crystal Springs.
