Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Showcases World-Class Golf Academy
Start 2018 Golf Season with Exceptional Instruction, Expert Club-Fitting
FARMINGTON, PA (February 13, 2018) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort – the acclaimed luxury resort in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania – features an array of exceptional instruction programs and expert club-fitting for the 2018 golf season.
The state-of-the-art Nemacolin Golf Academy offers topnotch instruction led by PGA Professional Eric Johnson, a Golf Digest “Top 100 Teacher.” Highlights at the world-class facility include individual lessons, TrackMan® Golf Radar Solution, SAM Putt Lab, V1 Video System, BodiTracks as well as one-, two- and three-day golf schools.
The Golf Academy additionally offers expert club-fitting for custom-made equipment ideal for everyday golf aficionados and junior players as well as professionals. The latest technology is used to accurately analyze individual swings and build the perfect clubs for consistent, enjoyable golf.
“The Nemacolin Golf Academy is one of the premier locales in the U.S. to improve your game,” says Mike Jones, director of golf and recreation. “Our never-ending goal is to help our members and guests take advantage of the expert teaching and technology we offer and elevate their enjoyment and skill to the next level.”
In addition to the Golf Academy, Nemacolin showcases two extraordinary courses designed by Pete Dye. Shepherd’s Rock opened last July to rave reviews. The 7,151-yard layout presents golf in a spectacular setting, as the rolling bucolic terrain provided an ideal canvas for Dye and co-designer Tim Liddy. The course offers plenty of challenge and fun for players of all abilities and is a perfect complement to the resort’s lauded Mystic Rock course.
GOLF Magazine named Shepherd’s Rock “Honorable Mention Best New Course You Can Play.” Golfweek tabbed Mystic Rock No. 1 among “Best Courses You Can Play in Pennsylvania,” and Golf Digest ranked Mystic Rock in the top-60 of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses.” The resort also received the coveted “Editors’ Choice Award” from Golf Digest in the “Best Golf Resorts in the Americas” category.
