Wild Turkey Golf Club is one of New Jersey's top public courses. It is part of the Crystal Springs Resort, which offers six other courses including the popular Ballyowen and Crystal Springs golf courses. Wild Turkey combines characteristics from both. The layout has a unique design inspired by the interesting topography, which is most aptly described as "basin and ridge." The "basin" of the course is a wide-open expanse that offers plenty of room while the holes that play along the "ridge" of the golf course tumble across a variety of elevation changes. Due to the dramatic undulations of the terrain, it's a tough golf course to walk. Wild Turkey Golf Club's signature hole is the par-3 seventh. This tricky hole calls for a demanding carry over a quarry lake in order to reach the well protected green.

Early season fun

The course is still in winter mode, but it was great to stretch my arms and swing freely, watch the true ball flight and not a simulator. Cart path only slowed play but amazingLy still a 4 hr 15 min round. Overall an enjoyable round.

Very nice layout

I love this course the views the layout! However today's round was very slow {front nine} until we called the pro shop and they finally sent out a ranger on the 8th hole and the back nine was played at a good pace.This is the only course in NJ and I play a lot of golf and many different courses that as of November 1st its cart path only even though it hasn't rained in over a week causing slow pace of play!

Wide landing areas, true greens

Very scenic and well laid out with the exception of the 15th. Flakey fairway layout. Beautiful though.

The course was in great shape and the pace of play was 4:15 which was great. Greens, fairways and tee boxes were all in great shape. There were some water logged bunkers but based on how much it had rained 2 days before, it was impressive that the course was not that wet. All in all, a great day at wild turkey.

No discount for aerated greens

Played on a blustery April day when absolutely no one else was on the course. The man working the counter told us that the greens had been aerated the week before. Now, I understand that aerated greens make for less than ideal conditions, but these greens were atrocious- every put was knocked off line. There wasn’t enough sand on the greens- it was a joke. After the round we asked for some sort of discount and were told we had been warned. Yes, but that’s assuming the aeration island sanding didn’t make craters and bumps that would make the ball fly in the air while putting. Some sort of compensation should have been offered for a terrible experience.

Cheers to Crystal Springs!

Wild Turkey is such a great couse! Even on April 6th the entire facility was up and running smoothly. The conditions were great. I've been wanting to start a membership with Crystal Springs. I may finally do it this year. I am an avid low handicap player but I have to budget myself. Hopefully I'll find a good deal so I play at Crystal Springs alot this year.

Cold and Windy March Round

Overall, Wild Turkey is a great course and fun layout. Today was a challenge. I could only count about 6 foursomes out in this 38-42 degree weather with wind bursts up to 35mph. Conditions were ok but obviously not like peak season. Speed was great - no one in front or behind. The value rating is because they charged $70 and the greens were extremely slow. Not that I expected better but if the price for the round was $49 - that would have been a good value.

Ehhh

Nice course and decent layout. For a $100+ course I’d expect a little better conditions. Greens were super slow and bunkers were horrible, especially without much rain. A little disappointed but a good course none the less.

Top Course in the TriState area

Sand traps were not in great condition.
Realizing how much rain the area has had this season, I’m sure new sand is in its way!
