To golfers, however, it's another of the funky charms of Great Gorge, where the carts are electric orange, the clubhouse has pinball machines, staffers wear tight Loudmouth pants and skirts, and yardage markers at the driving range include Playboy bunny logos.
As for the course, Great Gorge has a trio of meticulously conditioned nines, each with its own character. The Lakeside Course is beautiful, traditional and straightforward. The Quarryside Course, cut through rock, is twisting, jagged and demanding. The Railside Course is scenic, pastoral and forgiving.
Great Gorge is the oldest of seven courses under the Crystal Springs Resort umbrella, joining in 2004, and the only one with more than 18 holes. All of the courses are within a five-mile radius in Sussex County. While windswept Ballyowen Golf Club is widely acclaimed the best public course in the state, there's little doubt which of Crystal Springs' offerings is the most unique.
