Stonewall Resort’s Arnold Palmer golf course celebrating 15th anniversary

Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course now open

WESTON, W.Va. – The Arnold Palmer Signature Course at Stonewall Resort, celebrating its 15th Anniversary this year and ranked among the top 100 courses in the nation by Golfweek Magazine, will open for seasonal play on Saturday, April 1, resort officials announced.

“Golfing great Arnold Palmer, followed by a crowd of nearly 2,000 people, kicked off public play at our course in May 2002,” said Randy Hernly, PGA Golf Professional for the AAA Four Diamond-rated property. “He was very proud of this course and we have worked hard to sustain his legacy through constant improvement and enhanced playability.  The Palmer Course is ready for seasonal play.”

The 18-hole championship course was created by Arnold Palmer, the golf legend who amassed 92 national and international golf championships, 61 PGA Tour victories and 7 Major titles. Palmer laid out the design and oversaw construction of the 120-acre course, along with his firm, the Palmer Course Design Company.

The 2017 golf season will be marked by various events and activities to honor the legacy of Arnold Palmer.

“We are planning a season long celebration of the life of Arnold Palmer to coincide with this anniversary celebration,” said Hernly.  “We encourage guests to check the activity schedule at the Pro Shop.  Events will culminate with a special tribute to Mr. Palmer on what would have been his eighty-eighth birthday, Sunday, September 10th.”

Hernly encouraged guests to check out the Palmer Club Membership, a program designed for golfers that want to play more golf for less in 2017.  The program is specifically designed to provide a value golf membership for those looking for a fun and relaxing atmosphere to play golf on a regular basis.

Hernly noted that the Palmer Course was designed to appeal to all skill levels.  The course has six tee boxes and measures 7,149 yards from the back tees, also known as the “Palmer Tees,” garnering a United States Golf Association (USGA) Course Rating of 74.6 and a Slope Rating of 142.  “With the multiple tee box setup, golfers of all abilities can choose their own level of difficulty and the course can be enjoyed by both the serious handicapper and the novice alike,” he added.
