Not into golfing? There is still plenty for you to do! We understand that not everyone shares the same passion for golf, which is why we’ve curated an experience that offers something for everyone.

While the golfers enjoy their day on the green, non-golfers can pamper themselves and take advantage of some of the best amenities at this world-class luxury resort. Indulge your senses with delightful wine tastings or pamper yourself at one of two award-winning spas.

No matter your preference, we have thoughtfully put together an itinerary that ensures everyone feels included and has a truly memorable day. So whether you’re a golf aficionado or simply seeking a day of leisure and connection, our Networking for Scholarships event promises an unforgettable experience for all.

The NYNJMSDC Networking for Scholarships event will take place on two of Crystal Springs Resort’s six golf courses. In an effort to keep everyone on schedule, we ask that you choose the appropriate course for your skill level at the time of registration.

For Intermediate & Advanced Players Designed in the spirit of the world’s first golf courses, Ballyowen is one of the top golf courses in New Jersey, with a spectacular links-style course that channels the heathland style landscapes of Ireland and Scotland.

For New & Beginning Players Wild Turkey is one of the most unique golf courses in NJ, made up of two distinct types of terrain. The topography is best described as basin and ridge, providing golfers with the type of variety rarely found on a single course.
