Ballyowen
137 Wheatsworth Rd
Hamburg, NJ 07419, US
Ballyowen Golf Club has just been named as one of the Top 50 Public Courses in the US by Conde Nast's GolfWorld Magazine. Ballyowen has been masterfully sculpted out of the local landscape by renowned golf course architect, Roger Rulewich. Situated on 250 sprawling acres atop a plateau, Ballyowen is surrounded by rolling farmland and craggy knolls, overlooking the spirited Walkill River. Virtually treeless, with plush green fairways, Ballyowen reflects the Celtic-style characteristics of this most unique golf site. The links-style layout provides golfers with a kaleidoscopic array of verdant fairways, pristine white bunkering, and wheat-yellow native rough grasses. Tee shots flow into unique valleys amidst towering mounds. Glimpses of surrounding golf holes recede and vanish as golfers meander from fairway to fairway. Interestingly, the 360-degree visual perspective is relieved only by play of the individual holes. The golf season is from May 1-December 31 weather permitting.

Crystal Springs
123 Crystal Springs Rd
Hamburg, NJ 07419, US
Crystal Springs Golf Club is recognized as one of the finest golf facilities in the northeastern United States. When Crystal Springs opened in 1992, it was rated among the top 25 new golf courses in America by Golf Digest Magazine. The Jersey Golfer named Crystal Springs "The Best Public Golf Course" in New Jersey in its ranking of the state's best layouts. Year after year, Crystal Springs ranks among Golf Digest's top 10 list for public golf courses in New Jersey. 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 10th hole prompted the naming of the community, the golf course, and, ultimately, the Crystal Springs Resort.

Wild Turkey
1 Wild Turkey Way
Hamburg, NJ 07419, US
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. The basin area of Wild Turkey -- consisting of holes #3 and #12 through #17 -- is reminiscent of the treeless expanse of Ballyowen. The par-3, 14th tee affords golfers a view of the entire hollow, while challenging them with a long iron to a deep green. Many of the par-4's feature limited aprons require both strategy and precision on the approach shot. The green surrounding for the picturesque #15th hole is indicative of this prevailing design concept. The par-3, 7th signature hole at Wild Turkey shares much in common with Crystal Springs' signature hole. It, too, is a forced carry over a quarry lake to a well-protected and intimidating target. Comparable again to Crystal Springs and Ballyowen, playing Wild Turkey is considered a challenging event. Yet the multiple tee locations, generously wide fairways, and moderately contoured greens make Wild Turkey an enjoyable experience for all skill levels.
