Favorite Nemacolin Amenity / Activity:
Mystic Rock – A postcard image at every hole! 7,566 yards from the Pro Tees, a Pete Dye gem and masterpiece.

Favorite "WOW" Moment:
A corporate group was here and decided at last minute to take their group of 24 to The Field Club without reservations. The Field Club was actually closed that day; however, within thirty minutes the guides and staff were alerted and opened the facility. The group was so blown away with the experience that they ended up booking two more meetings at Nemacolin.

Favorite "WOW" Moment:
My favorite wow moment with a client / group at Nemacolin is when we do something unexpected for them. Whether it is a standing ovation upon departure, a surprise champagne toast at their reception or a simple upgrade for the person that really deserves it – you are able to see a true reaction of surprise and appreciation. If you are able to pull it off correctly – the "wow moment" is unmatched.

Favorite Nemacolin Amenity / Activity:

Safari Tour… all of our amenities and activities are exceptional, but the Safari Tour is so unique…up close and personal with lions and tigers and bears …oh my!

Favorite "WOW" Moment:
During a recent group 4th of July BBQ, our Nemacolin Woodlands Resort team did an awesome job with the patriotic theming, fun kid's activities, great food, band with live music and spectacular fireworks display. All of these amenities framed a gorgeous summer evening with a full moon clearly visible just above the stage where the band performed. The group (well-traveled executives and their families) were blown away with the evening. Our team was spot on with production and service throughout. Comments from the group were as such, "best event we have been to in 20 years," "you guys rock" and best of all, "oh yes… we'll be back!"

I don’t think that I have ever smiled so much!
