    Wednesday, June 17 – Thursday, June 18

    Crystal Springs Resort
    Sussex County, NJ

    Stay and Play

    $225 per person (two people in a room) – includes overnight stay at the Minerals Hotel, Golf on Wednesday, June 17, on the Wild Turkey Golf Course – tee times approximately between 1:30 – 2:30 p.m., Golf on Thursday, June 18, on the Black Bear Golf Course – tee times approximately between 8:00 – 8:30 a.m. Single Occupancy rate - $320

    With its debut on July 7, 2001, Wild Turkey became the Crystal Spring Resort’s second Roger Rulewich design -- an outstanding encore to Rulewich’s award-winning Ballyowen. Located adjacent to Crystal Springs Golf Club, Wild Turkey’s topography is best described as “basin & ridge”. The layout’s two distinct terrain types combine the sheer expansiveness of Ballyowen with the rugged, multi-elevated nature of Crystal Springs. While it may be easy to classify Wild Turkey as a combination of its two sister courses, Wild Turkey stands on its own merit as a uniquely designed golf course, named one of NJ's Top New Public Courses by NJGCOA.

    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.

    $235 per person (two people in a room) – includes overnight stay at the Minerals Hotel, $125 Spa Resort Gift Card
