Enjoying a Great Game in the Summertime
New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania courses are 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 to the course at The Club at Twin Lakes in Allentown is one of the more interesting layouts in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. It’s a challenging track that features elevated tees, sloping fairways and water hazards.
Constructed in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, The Club at Twin Lakes is a mature course located on the grounds of an old iron ore mine. The owners of the club and course, the Jaindl family, a preeminent agriculture/development company, and KemperSports Management have partnered to deliver a “Best in Class” customer experience from the golf to an upscale food and beverage services, including weddings, social events and the Wild Turkey Grill.
There has been lot going on at Twin Lakes. On the course, 400 trees have been removed and the remaining trees have been limbed up. Additionally, a continuous cart path has been added throughout the course, and all bunkers have received a facelift with fresh sand.
From its inception, Moselem Springs Golf Club’s course in Fleetwood, Pa. has been considered one of the finest championships layouts in the region, and country for that matter. This George Fazio design is a stunningly scenic test of skill and has hosted a U.S. Women’s Open, as well as state and regional tournaments. And it continues to dazzle those playing the scenic and challenging routing.
A lot of clubs bill themselves as a country club for a day, but Moselem Springs is just that for those who play the almost 7,000-yard course (from the tips), which plays to a par of 70.
Five golf-obsessed Monmouth county residents got together during the 2020-2021 lockdown and brought their collective experiences–mini-tour events, a president of a prominent local club, a former local club champion included among the group–and asked themselves just how hungry for golf their friends, co-workers, and family were.
They got their answer and thus Tee 2 Green was launched. “With nearly every local club on a wait list, and the fine local county courses busting at the seams, the answer became obvious,” said one of the `five’, Tom Brewer. “After nearly two years of finding the perfect place, planning, and building, Tee 2 Green is fully expected to open in September 2022.”
