Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Unveils New Shepherd’s Rock Course
Highly Anticipated Pete Dye and Tim Liddy Designed Layout Opens July 12

FARMINGTON, PA (July 10, 2017) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, the acclaimed luxury resort in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, opens its dramatic new Pete Dye- and Tim Liddy-designed golf course, Shepherd’s Rock, on July 12.

High atop the Allegheny Mountains, the eagerly anticipated 7,151-yard Shepherd’s Rock presents extraordinary golf in a spectacular setting. The rolling bucolic terrain proved an exceptional canvas for Dye and Liddy to fashion a routing sure to draw raves from both media and guests. Shepherd’s Rock will provide plenty of challenge and fun for players of all abilities, and be a perfect complement to the resort’s lauded Mystic Rock course.

The stout 3,834-yard front nine of Shepherd’s Rock is brawny and wide open with jaw-dropping vistas of the Laurel Highlands and ample landing areas off the tee. The dramatic par-5 ninth, under the gaze of Nemacolin’s Five-Diamond Falling Rock boutique hotel, boasts a green occupying the property’s high ground and a single, magnificent oak tree standing sentinel on the right.

The tree-lined 3,317-yard back nine of Shepherd’s Rock will be a shotmaker’s paradise as precision and accuracy are key to successfully navigating its rippling fairways flanked by the ever-present Dye-created mounds, natural wetlands and cleverly situated greens. Ball positioning will be crucial, especially on the challenging par-4 18th. Destined to be regarded as one of golf’s best finishing holes, the 18th offers a demanding tee shot and picturesque water hazard guarding the green, both hallmarks of a resounding finish.

“Pete Dye and Tim Liddy have created a true golf masterpiece in Shepherd’s Rock, and we’re overjoyed with the results,” says Monte Hansen, Managing Director at Nemacolin. “Few resorts showcase 36 holes of this magnitude, positioning us at the pinnacle of premier golf destinations in the U.S.”

Ideal for playing both Shepherd’s Rock and Mystic Rock while savoring Nemacolin’s world-class amenities, the premium “Double Dose of Dye” getaway features two-nights’ luxury accommodations and a round of golf on each of its extraordinary layouts from July 12 until the end of the golf season. Nemacolin’s Stay & Play Golf Package includes overnight accommodations and a round of golf on Shepherd’s Rock or Mystic Rock over the same timeframe.

Both golf packages include cart fees, forecaddie fees (gratuity extra), and locker room and range access. A two-night minimum may be required and seven-day advance reservations are requested. Other restrictions and fees may apply.

The resort’s Nemacolin Golf Academy offers an array of game improvement programming with Golf Digest “Top 100 Teacher,” PGA Professional Eric Johnson, including: individual lessons, TrackMan® Golf Radar Solution, SAM Putt Lab, V1 Video System, BodiTracks, one-, two- 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.
