#6. Experience fall fly fishing on the Youghiogheny River
Rod & Range Club offers some of the finest fly-fishing streams in the Eastern United States. From beginners to experienced anglers, we promise a thrilling fishing experience to remember. Enjoy our range of day trips with a trained fishing guide. Transportation and equipment are included for all trips, and lunch is offered on full-day trips. Though they usually are this time of year, we can’t promise the fish will be biting, but our team knows the best spots on the Yough, at Meadow Run, on Beaver Creek, and on some of the ssssshhhhh spots we won’t mention here.
#5. Saddle up with a Backwoods Trail Ride
Tour the scenic beauty of the Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands on horseback. Backwoods Trail Rides begin at the Equestrian Center, and your guide will lead you through two miles of wooded trails. A walk in the woods is always lovely, but it’s extra special when you’re riding horseback, and the crunch of the leaves is below your gentle mare’s hooves.
#4. Indulge in a second summer lunch on the patio
There’s nothing like an amber glow in the trees, on the horizon, and in your surroundings. Once known in yesteryear as an Indian summer, the glow of everything about autumn is referred to today as badger summer, quince summer, pastrami summer, or second summer. On the warm days of fall, lunch on the patio outside the Amber Bar at Falling Rock is simply divine.
Come late in the day on Fridays and Saturdays, and you may hear the bellows of the bagpiper who strolls the paths around the 18th hole of Mystic Rock. And if you’d like, we can even arrange a picnic lunch or a sunset supper with a hand-selected bottle of wine to drink and dine under a tree in the meadow near Shepherd’s Rock #9. We’ve held some magical events in this spot recently, and we can make your experience magical, too.
Play the best golf of your life at Nemacolin, and enjoy the renowned fall scenery while doing so. The Mystic Rock and Shepherd’s Rock courses at Nemacolin were designed by architect Pete Dye, who has been called “the father of modern golf course design.” No two rounds will ever be identical here — and that’s just part of what makes Nemacolin such a magical and popular golf getaway. Both Golf Digest and Golfweek have recognized the courses for their stunning beauty and challenging layout, offering championship-level elements of mountain golf in a spectacular setting among Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains.
When the weather turns or when instruction is your desired focus, the Golf Academy at Nemacolin is the place to bring your game to a new level as one of the country’s most innovative golf training and practice facilities. You’ll find personalized instruction, bootcamps and curated schools, and some of the most advanced technology in the industry.
