Nicklaus Resort Course Honored by GOLF Magazine

(CUMBERLAND, Md.) – Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort – an amenity-rich AAA Four-Diamond Resort – today announces its Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course appears in GOLF Magazine’s “Best Courses Near You” rankings.

The September issue marks the first time GOLF – one of the nation’s most widely circulated golf publications – has ranked the best courses in each state. Rocky Gap is in elite company on the list of Maryland’s finest and can stake claim to being the state’s only Nicklaus Signature Course. The magazine’s rankings panel included editorial staff and well-traveled golf industry sources.

“It’s always a thrill to be recognized as a top-of-the-bell-curve course and to have such a prestigious publication such as GOLF consider Rocky Gap one of the best courses in the state speaks volumes,” says Rocky Gap General Manager Tim Grambley. “This is a credit to the design as well as the day-to-day efforts of our dedicated staff here at the resort – both on and off the course.”

The award-winning par-72 course is a design masterpiece that features two unique playing experiences. The front nine was carved out of the mountainside and boasts dramatic elevation changes, while the back nine features expansive, gently rolling fairways and scenic vistas with breathtaking views of the wooded splendor.

From the first tee to the final putt, Rocky Gap is an experience unlike any other. The variety of holes – from long-and-demanding to short-but-sweet, doglegs left and right, and a mix of terrain – keeps the round fresh at every turn.

In addition to championship golf, Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort also offers many packages ranging from treatments at the Garden Spa to holidays, romance and family.

Conveniently located within two hours of Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Washington D.C., the all-inclusive resort sits at the gateway to Rocky Gap State Park and is nestled at the base of Evitts Mountain, on the pristine shores of Lake Habeeb.
