Built in the early 1970’s, the Jasna Polana — Polish for “bright glade” — is the former estate of Johnson & Johnson heir J. Seward Johnson and his wife, Barbara. Situated on approximately 230 acres of gentle rolling hills and forests just west of Princeton, New Jersey. The estate today serves as a private golf club housing a Gary Player-designed championship course. The par-72, 7,098 yard course is considered to be one of the top golf courses in New Jersey and is part of the PGA TOUR’s TPC Network.
The mansion cost $30 million to build and was designed by world-renowned architect Wallace Harrison. Numerous 18th and 19th century paintings along with original furnishings from the George II era add to the historic and stately facility.
Event attendees will enter through the Grand Foyer, anchored by a suspended travertine stone staircase. The Future Dealership Forum will be held in the Grand Travertine Room, which provides panoramic views of the estate.
