A Welcome Return to Normalcy

After an unsettling and challenging 2020, returning to normalcy in 2021 has been a much-needed blessing.

New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania courses have proven to be places where we have been able to reconnect with friends and play the game we love, while enjoying the great outdoors in a safe fashion.

In this digital issue of Golfing Magazine we take you on a road trip to Crystal Springs Resort in the Sussex Highlands of northwest New Jersey is one of the premier golf and relaxation destinations in the Northeast, anywhere really. Why not visit and play one or all of the resort’s magnificent courses.

Here are some other reasons to spend some time with our magazine:

Located high up in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania, Morgan Hill Golf Course in Easton presents a challenging yet player-friendly layout with extraordinary views and excellent playing conditions.  Since opening in 2004, Morgan Hill has received numerous accolades on both state and national levels. The layout is a pleasingly eclectic mix of a classic layout and stunning vistas.

Indigo Golf Partners, formerly Billy Casper Golf, manages 160-plus 9- to 45- hole golf courses in 29 states, as well as driving ranges, short courses, small- to large-scale food and beverage and catering operations, tennis, fitness, pools and other club amenities. The company manages 12 facilities in New Jersey and Jack Frost National in eastern Pennsylvania  These range from municipal (Morris County/Middlesex County, High Bridge) to HOA (Greenbriar Oceanaire) to institutional owners (Fox Hollow, Cranbury, Royce Brook and Hyatt Hills).

Work on three new holes at Town and Country Golf Links in Woodstown, New Jersey is nearing completion and the project will enhance what was already a superb golf course and pleasing test of playing ability. Holes 10, 11 and 12 have been redone and are another reason for golfers to visit and try out the course this summer. The holes will be open for play mid-summer, but all 18 holes remain open in the meantime.

Accomplished architect Gil Hanse led a restoration of the Lower Course at legendary Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey, the layout re-opening for play in May of this year after being closed in 2020 to allow for the work. The Lower Course will host its next major championship, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, in 2023. The PGA Championship will return to the Lower Course in 2029 for a third time. Following the success of the Lower Course restoration, the Upper Course is slated for a similar project with Hanse in 2024.

Celebrating a sport they love and looking through their highly-trained lens at their long list of contacts and influencers, Alyson Johnson of Califon, New Jersey and LeslieAnne Wade of New Vernon, New Jersey recently launched White Tee Partners, a strategic communications and public relations agency that they believe will “elevate” people, brands and properties in golf.

We hope you enjoy this issue and get out to your favorite courses as much as possible.
