GolfWith over 100 courses spread across West Virginia, golfers are never far from the fairways. The state that was home to America’s first golf club in 1884, with a modest nine-hole course in a pasture, now boasts championship courses designed by golf legends such as Arnold Palmer, Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus and Robert Trent Jones Sr. Combine these quality courses with gorgeous mountain views. The result? A heavenly golf getaway in West Virginia.
Start your golf journey at Stonewall Resort State Park where golfers can experience the Arnold Palmer Signature Course, a course surrounded by stunning scenery and great for golfers of every level. Multiple tee sections, impeccable conditions and the chance to experience Arnold Palmer’s design make this course a must-play among avid golfers. While at the resort, stay in a luxury lakeside cabin and enjoy the amenities, including boating, fine dining and a first-class spa.
Head north to West Virginia’s Northern Panhandle to try your swing at Oglebay Resort. The onsite Speidel Golf Course features two championship courses. The Arnold Palmer designed course is a par 71 course with strategically placed bunkers and generous greens. The Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed course is also a spectacular in design and offers multiple tee selections. Golfers can also perfect their golf game on the Par 3 course or at the driving range. Oglebay Resort is a golf getaway the whole family will enjoy. While visiting, plan a trip to the resort’s Good Zoo, or take a short drive into town and tour Wheeling, West Virginia’s first state capital.
Head to the Potomac Highlands for the last leg of your golfing adventure. Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, the Raven Golf Club at Snowshoe Mountain Resort is home to a Gary Player Signature Golf Course. This professionally designed course features beautiful scenery and is a great course to play in the summer, thanks to the area’s mild temperatures. Set amid the West Virginia mountains, this is definitely a course you’ll want to play over and over again. After a day on the greens, grab some craft beer and explore The Village at Snowshoe Mountain Resort.
