(CUMBERLAND, Md.) – Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort – home to the state’s only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course – today announces David Sanderson has returned to the AAA Four-Diamond resort to head the sales and marketing department. Sanderson previously served as Director of Sales and Marketing between 2002 and 2005.

“David Sanderson is a well-respected and experienced resort veteran and brings a great deal of knowledge and dedication to our team at Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort,” says General Manager Tim Grambley. “Both our resort team and our guests will benefit from his vast experience in the industry.

Prior to rejoining Rocky Gap, Sanderson served as an industry consultant. “We have used David extensively in consulting assignments for the past year from coast to coast.

Rocky Gap’s award-winning golf course – given 4 Stars by Golf Digest – is a design masterpiece that features two unique playing experiences. The par-72 track features a front nine that weaves its way along 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.

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.
