New Jersey boasts more than 180 public golf courses, from Scottish links style courses along the coast to challenging wooded courses upstate. Many of our courses also host renowned golf tournaments, such as the Shoprite LPGA Classic at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club in Galloway on May 30 – June 5, 2016 and the PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield on July 25 – 31, 2016. New Jersey also boasts the nation’s largest collection of important golf artifacts and memorabilia, at the United States Golf Association Museum in Bernards Township.

For the ultimate golfing vacation, make sure to stay at one of our incredible golfing resorts, where you can stay and play for one amazing getaway. The luxurious Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg offers seven award-winning public golf courses – all within a five-mile radius – that boast designer names such as Von Hagge, Trent Jones, George Fazio and Rulewich. Stay in Crystal Springs’ AAA Four-Diamond Grand Cascades Lodge (Hamburg) for plush Adirondack-style accommodations nestled in the Kittatinny Mountains, and then spend the day at nearby links-style Ballyowen Golf Club (Hamburg), frequently rated as New Jersey’s number one golf course.
