Crystal Springs Golf Resort in New Jersey features so much more than just seven courses

HAMBURG, N.J. -- Playing golf doesn't have to take center stage for vacation at Crystal Springs Golf Resort in northern New Jersey. You can avoid the resort's seven courses and still have a great time.

A stay at the Grand Cascades Lodge will deliver special memories. Families will gravitate toward the indoor/outdoor Biosphere Pool Complex featuring an indoor water slide set amid a rocky jungle-like setting. Extreme fun is just a short shuttle ride away at the outdoor Mountain Creek Waterpark.

The thrills of cliff jumping and flying off the Tarzan swing into deep pools are nothing compared to a harrowing ride down the 'H2-Oh-No' waterslide. Those who don't want to get wet can ride the Mountain Alpine coaster and Soaring Eagle.

There's a unique sports zone where youngsters can test their hockey, golf, soccer and tennis skills. Adults wanting to escape such madness can do so at the fire-and-ice themed Reflections Spa back at the lodge. Even foodies spoiled by the New York restaurant scene 50 miles away will savor dining at Restaurant LaTour and ordering from its 78,000-bottle Wine Cellar. The Crystal Tavern is quite elegant, too, but more family friendly.
