Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Selects Buffalo.Agency for Golf Public Relations

RESTON, VA (September 22, 2016) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort – the acclaimed luxury property in the Laurel Highlands of Southwestern Pennsylvania – has selected Buffalo.Agency for golf-focused public relations.

Buffalo will design and execute a strategic communications plan aligned with Nemacolin’s emergence as a premier golf destination. The resort will open Shepherd’s Rock next July, its second Pete Dye design in concert with Tim Liddy. The new 18 will join the resort’s Dye-designed Mystic Rock, former home of the PGA TOUR’s 84 Lumber Classic and ranked No. 60 in Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses.”

“With the addition of Shepherd’s Rock we believe Nemacolin immediately moves into the upper echelon of world-class golf destinations,” says Monte Hansen, managing director. “There’s an exciting and unwavering commitment to golf from ownership, from our courses and instruction to our industry talent and leadership.”

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 club-fitting 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 U.S. Open

“Few resorts anywhere will be able to match the thrill of playing these two incredible Pete Dye courses in such a beautiful, captivating setting,” says Rich Katz, Managing Director of Buffalo.Agency. “With more than 1.7 million golfers living within a half day’s drive, Nemacolin is positioned to become one of the country’s great golf destinations.”
