Nemacolin Woodlands Resort (Mystic Rock course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1995

Nemacolin Woodlands Resort (Mystic Rock course): Home to two Pete Dye-designed championship layouts, Nemacolin Woodlands offers its members, guests, resort guests and outside visitors two excellent layouts on which to ply their golfing skills. No stranger to top-level tournament golf, the highly-rated Mystic Rock course was joined in 2016 by a redesigned Shepherd's Rock course (formerly known as the Links course).

The Mystic Rock layout is one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in Pennsylvania. This tree-lined and open parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play this excellent Pete Dye design.

Stay & Play at Nemacolin Woodlands: a variety of onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
