Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

For those in search of a getaway destination with exceptional golf and world-class lodging and dining. Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania beckons with its “expect the unexpected” luxury experience. The resort offers something for everyone including two “must-play” courses.

In July, Nemacolin upped its ante significantly in the golf world with the opening of its splendid new Shepherd’s Rock course. Designed by Pete Dye and Tim Liddy, the 7,151-yard layout presents extraordinary golf in a spectacular setting atop the scenic Allegheny Mountains.

The stout 3,834-yard front nine of Shepherd’s Rock is strapping and wide open with jaw-dropping vistas and ample landing areas off the tee. The dramatic par-5 ninth, under the gaze of Nemacolin’s Five-Diamond Falling Rock boutique hotel, boasts a sloped green occupying the property’s high ground and a single, magnificent oak tree standing sentinel on the right.

The tree-lined 3,317-yard back nine of Shepherd’s Rock is a shot-maker’s paradise with its rippling fairways flanked by ever-present Dye-created mounds, natural wetlands and cleverly situated putting surfaces. Ball positioning will be crucial, especially on the challenging par-4 18th. Destined to be regarded as one of golf’s best finishing holes, it demands a long well-placed tee shot with a picturesque water hazard guarding the green. It’s a thrilling finish.

The new course is the ideal complement to the resort’s Pete Dye-designed Mystic Rock. The former venue of the PGA Tour’s 84 Lumber Classic, the superb par-72 layout stretches to over 7,500 yards from the tips and features five sets of tees making the course more than playable for golfers of all abilities. Caddies are included in the greens fee for both courses making the golf experience something to long savor.

Many additional activities and amenities can be found inside the friendly Nemacolin confines. The resort’s internationally acclaimed Spa & Wellness Collection features a wide variety of services from relaxing massages to facials to integrative practices such as acupuncture and energy work. Nemacolin also boasts an extensive art collection and museums showcasing vintage planes and unique automobiles.
