Golfing Magazine and Summer on the Course a Perfect Combo


In this issue of Golfing Magazine, we give you the lowdown on Jumping Brook Country Club, designed by A.W. Tillinghast and Willard Wilkinson, the pair crafted a superb test of playing ability that stands the test of time. Opened in 1925, the classic routing, with its sod faced bunkers, grass mounds, and elevated and undulating greens, still befuddles and delights the best players in the game. What makes Jumping Brook great is that the atmosphere is very laid back. Golf as its only amenity (no pool or tennis), so the focal point and common denominator is golf, with the course a challenging, old school layout. Jumping Brook will be launching a program for new members coming whereby if those individuals place a deposit on Oct. 1 for next season, they will be able to play the club as a member for the months of October, November, and December of this year as well.

We also visit Raritan Valley Country Club. Raritan Valley Country Club has deep-rooted traditions. The H.H. Barker-designed golf course’s gently rolling terrain, and beautiful views of the Watchung Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop for both well-seasoned players and occasional golfers. The club’s tennis and squash courts, resort-style pool, first-class dining and elegant banquet facilities, offer complementary amenities that make Raritan Valley a unique family-friendly country club experience.

You can check out Crystal Springs, located in the Sussex Skylands area of northwestern New Jersey, just south of the border with New York State and fairly close to the rolling farmlands of eastern Pennsylvania, has its golf spread among six courses.  The resort’s Ballyowen Golf Club is a superb Celtic link-style course created by master architect Roger Rulewich. The Crystal Springs course is regarded as one of the sternest tests in the region. The nine-hole Cascades, also designed by Rulewich, formally opened for play in the spring of 2009. Wild Turkey Golf Course is also located on the property of the luxurious Grand Cascades Lodge, and Black Bear Golf Club is just a few miles away from the resort’s main property. In addition to the above layouts, there is the nine-hole Minerals Golf Club, where adults and youngsters can enjoy the game together without feeling intimidated.
