Hamburg, NJ – Crystal Springs Resort, one of the premier northeastern U.S. golf destinations an hour from New York City, has developed a partnership with the IAGTO, and will attend the NAC at the end of June.
“IAGTO is the leading international golf travel organization and we are very excited to be developing this relationship to help drive international tourism to the state of New Jersey,” Vice President of Crystal Springs Resort, Art Walton, said. “With our close proximity to New York City, one of the largest cities in the world for international travel, it was a natural fit for us to join IAGTO and attend its convention here in the U.S. to start developing strategic relationships with their tour operators to grow our golf package business.”
Recognized as one of the “Best Resorts in the Americas” by Golf Digest with six courses and 90-holes of golf, Crystal Springs offers an unprecedented variety of golf package opportunities for golf aficionados and families seeking the best in golf, lodging, dining and activities.
Leading the way at Crystal Springs is the award-winning Ballyowen Golf Club, New Jersey’s No. 1 rated golf course, and the Wild Turkey course combined with luxurious accommodations in the Grand Cascades Lodge, one of the premier luxury hotels in the Northeast.
Complimenting Ballyowen and Wild Turkey is a variety of golf unmatched in the Northeast. This includes one of Golf Digest Magazine’s toughest courses in America, the memorable Crystal Springs course. It meanders in and around a spectacular limestone quarry. Black Bear is also one of the more popular courses in the region. It drapes along the Hamburg Mountain landscape providing scenic wooded holes with challenging shot values.
Crystal Springs also features two innovative nine-hole courses that cater to all levels of players and families. The Cascades course offers a variety of tee positions including junior tees, large cups, as well as Footgolf, Golf Boards, and Golf Bikes. The Minerals course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., has long been regarded as the best 9-hole golf course in the Northeast and one of the top short courses in America. It is perfect for families with its four-person family golf carts.
Add in top dining experiences like the 4-star Restaurant Latour and its award-winning (Wine Spectator Grand Award) 135,000-bottle Wine Cellar, two full-service award-winning spas, skeet shooting and scotch tastings, and the IAGTO will have a premier luxury golf retreat unmatched in the region to offer international golf travelers.
