4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Nemacolin Woodlands Resort (Shepherd's Rock course): Following the 2016 redesign and renaming of the resort's Links Course (now known as Shepherd's Rock), Nemacolin Woodlands has two excellent layouts on which its members, guests, resort guests and outside visitors can ply their golfing skills. The Shepherd's Rock course now holds its own with Nemacolin's highly-rated Mystic Rock course ... and both layouts now carry the prestigious billing of being "Pete Dye designs".

Shepherd's Rock was the first of two golf courses to be built at Nemacolin Woodlands. Willard Rockwell's easy-going original layout was substantially redesigned by Pete Dye in 2016. With the redesign came a considerably more inspiring and challenging test. This tree-lined and open parkland layout now offers an excellently crafted design with plenty of golfing challenge. Well worth including on your play list together with the more renowned Mystic Rock course.

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

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
