Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Awe-Inspiring Autumn Golf
For those in search of an autumn getaway with exceptional golf and world-class lodging and dining, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort beckons with its “expect the unexpected” luxury experience.

Seasoned travelers appreciate the co-existence of the resort's five-diamond hotel, Falling Rock, and nationally-ranked golf course, Mystic Rock. Only a few U.S. resorts can boast this prestigious pairing, and Nemacolin, situated on nearly 2,000 acres about an hour southeast of Pittsburgh, delivers something unique and special to its guests in spades.

Mystic Rock, a “must play” Pete Dye design, sits majestically atop the Alleghany Mountains. The course once hosted the PGA TOUR's 84 Lumber Classic and ranks in the top-60 in Golf Digest's “America's 100 Greatest Public Courses.” A brawny par-72 layout stretching to over 7,500 yards from the tips, the layout features five sets of tees making the course more than playable for golfers of any and all abilities. Even better, caddies are included in the green fee to make the golf experience something to long savor.

Upping its ante significantly in the golf world, Nemacolin is set to open a stellar new 18-hole championship course to co-star with Mystic Rock. Dye, along with noted architect Tim Liddy, are putting the final touches on Shepherd's Rock. The rolling layout will open next July and is expected to rival the highest rated courses in the country, enhancing Nemacolin's reputation as a premier golf travel destination.

In addition to Mystic Rock and Shepherd's Rock, the Nemacolin Golf Academy offers an array of game improvement programming including: individual lessons, TrackMan ball flight and V-1 Video swing analysis, one- and three-day golf schools, and one of the leading clubfitting centers on the East Coast. A commitment to growing the game also abounds, with numerous junior and family golf options.

Earlier this year, Nemacolin added two of the top names in the golf industry leading up to the opening of Shepherd's Rock. Mike Jones, director of golf and recreation, comes to Nemacolin from Hawaii's Kapalua Resort, one of the top golf resorts in the world. Director of instruction Eric Johnson, one GOLF Magazine's “Top 100 teachers in America,” arrived at Nemacolin just days after his former course, Oakmont Country Club, hosted the 2016 U.S. Open.

Golfers aren't the only ones who can enjoy Nemacolin. Outdoor enthusiasts will relish the Shooting Academy and Jeep Off-Road Driving Academy. The resort also offers a Wildlife Academy featuring everything from safari tours to dog sledding, and an Adventure Center complete with zip lines and climbing wall.

Luxurious touches inside Nemacolin's Falling Rock boutique hotel abound. A tribute to the organic architectural style of Frank Lloyd Wright, Falling Rock features 42 rooms, including four suites. A 24-hour butler service allows guests to fully indulge in niceties such as a 10-option pillow menu, upscale sheets and hand sewn chenille bedding. Plus, guests of the AAA Five-Diamond award winning hotel can enjoy exclusive amenities such as a drawn-bath menu, milk and cookie turndowns, and exclusive access to its Infinity pool. In all, Nemacolin offers 320 luxurious guestrooms, suites, townhouses and private upscale homes.

Many additional activities and amenities can be found inside the friendly Nemacolin confines. The resort possesses an internationally acclaimed spa collection – a wide variety of services from relaxing massages to facials to integrative practices such as acupuncture and energy work. Nemacolin also boasts an extensive art collection and museums showcasing vintage planes and unique automobiles. All these activities will surely work up an appetite; thankfully Nemacolin has 15 restaurants and lounges – from the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond winning Lautrec to pub-style fare with billiards at the Tavern – that will satisfy any palate.
