No doubt, Crystal Springs Resort is New Jersey's best golf destination near New York City.
It was the Ballyowen Course I was anticipating most. Many consider it the best golf course in New Jersey and with good reason: It's beautiful, challenging, very playable and certainly one of Roger Rulewich's best designs. There are four championship courses at Crystal Springs Resort, the focus of my recent golf trip to the northern New Jersey area. Besides Ballyowen and Wild Turkey, there is also the original Crystal Springs Course and Black Bear, which was acquired a few years ago and is located off site.
