Crystal Springs ResortSussex County, NJ
Stay and Play
$250 per person (two people in a room) – includes overnight stay at the Minerals Hotel, Golf on Monday, May 3, on the Crystal Springs Golf Course – tee times approximately between 1:00 – 2:00 p.m., Golf on Tuesday, May 4, on the Black Bear Golf Course – tee times approximately between 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. Single Occupancy rate - $320
Crystal Springs is also considered the most challenging layout in New Jersey. Despite measuring just over 6,800 yards from the championship tees, the distinct character of the club can be attributed to designer Robert von Hagge of Houston, Texas. Von Hagge has long been recognized as one of the leading golf course architects in the United States. One of the hallmarks of a von Hagge course is sculpted mounds that frame the fairways and greens… giving definition to each hole while adding an intense contrast of color between the fairways and roughs.
When the limestone quarrying operations ceased in 1929, the site filled with water, forming the many natural springs that now dot the property. The clear waters at the 11th hole prompted the naming of the community, the golf course, and, ultimately, the Crystal Springs Resort.
Black Bear opened in July of 1996 and has enjoyed tremendous popularity ever since. Boasting a 6,673-yard layout co-designed by famed developer Jack Kurlander, Black Bear offers you an inviting diversity of terrain, scenery, and shot selections.
