Oglebay Resort and Conference Center Unaffected by Historic West Virginia Floods

Two Championship Courses, Family-Friendly 18 in Excellent Condition

(WHEELING, W.V.) – Oglebay Resort and Conference Center – West Virginia’s most popular golf destination set in Oglebay Park amid the stunning Appalachian foothills – announces its golf courses were unaffected by the recent devastating floods in the state.

Oglebay’s two exceptional 18-hole championship layouts at The Speidel Golf Club designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Arnold Palmer, along with the resort’s 5,600-yard original course – the Crispin – and its family-friendly par-3 course remained fully operational and open for play throughout June.

“Our courses drained exceptionally well from the recent rains and course conditions are ideal right now,” says Rodney Haley, Executive Vice President of Operations. “While our golf operations have continued without interruption this season, our thoughts remain with those severely affected by the historic floods.”

Oglebay’s golf amenities feature layouts for all abilities. The Jones and Palmer courses at Speidel Golf Club present a compelling mix of classic and modern styles. The Crispin Course is perfect for warm-up rounds, seniors and beginners, while the two driving ranges and par-3 course are also available on-site.

This summer, Oglebay boasts a selection of stay-and-play packages that emphasize first-rate golf at reasonable pricing. The Birdie Weekday Package includes a round of golf on both the Jones and Palmer courses, cart with GPS for each round and lodging starting at $169 (per person, per night, double occupancy). Through Sept. 30 (Sun.-Thurs.), the getaway also offers play on the par-3 course and daily breakfast buffet.

Available on weekends through late fall and beginning at $299 per person (double occupancy, two-night stay required), the Eagle Weekend Package includes rounds with GPS cart on both the Jones and Palmer courses, as well as daily play on the par-3 and Crispin courses (subject to availability, cart not included).
