Crystal Springs Golf Club, Crystal Springs

An hour from Manhattan sits this Sussex County complex of three hotels and seven golf courses. Each offers packages, the most upscale of which is Ballyowen, architect Roger Rulewich’s linksy homage to Old World golf, complete with fescue-covered mounds, strolling sheep and a bagpiper who puts the course to sleep at sunset. Also check out the elevated first tee at another of Crystal Springs’ offerings, Great Gorge’s Lakeside nine—one of the Garden State’s most attractive openers.
