Keep Golfing When the Leaves Turn and Fall

We have enjoyed an ideal summer for golf. I’m betting that autumn is going to be just as nice and perfect for our favorite game. While the leaves have begun to turn color and the days are shorter, don’t put those sticks away just yet. Continue to enjoy being outside and with your buddies on a golf course.

This time of the year can offer up some of the best weather to play golf in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. Here’s what we have lined up for you in our Autumn Issue to get you excited to keep playing.

Essex County, New Jersey golfers have three very good, historic courses that have been undergoing improvement projects to make them even better. The Essex County courses include the Francis A. Byrne Golf Course in West Orange, built in 1926 and designed by legendary architect Charles Banks; Hendricks Field Golf Course in Belleville, opened in 1929 and another Charles Banks work but recently renovated under the guidance of Stephen Kay; and Weequahic Golf Course, opened in 1913 and the first public golf course in the state of New Jersey, designed by Baltusrol Golf Club’s first pro George Low.

A bevy of New Jersey courses will stay open during the winter if the weather permits. Even if some snow does fall, the courses may close but will re-open if Mother Nature cooperates. So, just because the calendar is heading toward December doesn’t mean it’s time to give up our favorite game for two or three months.

Rock Spring Golf Club features one of only two public golf courses in the United States designed by legendary architect Seth Raynor, whose highly-ranked work includes Fisher’s Island in New York, Shoreacres on Chicago’s North Shore, and Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda. Twelve of Raynor’s courses are on GOLF Magazine’s list of the Top 100 in the U.S.

When you play an Ottinger Golf Group course you will be playing one of the top rated courses in New Jersey and will come away impressed with the quality of the layouts and the service you will receive from the staffs at each club. Ottinger Golf  offers a unique experience at each one of our courses and has three top-10 public courses in the state of New Jersey, including Atlantic City Country Club, which has been named the top course in the state.

We also have a few great destinations for you to visit during the off-season, as well as offer some tips on how to stay fit when golf season does finally slow down.

Enjoy our issue and keep playing golf.
