Arnold Palmer Signature Course Receives National Accolades


Weston, West Virginia (June 29, 2011) – The Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course at Stonewall Resort in Lewis, County, West Virginia continues toreceive national recognition for the quality of the course and caliber of play from some of America’s top golf publications, resort officials recently announced.

In 2011 alone, Golfweek Magazine named the course #42 Best Resort Course in the United States, Links Magazine ranked it #3 among the Arnold Palmer Golf Courses You Can Play and Rolex named it to its Top 1000 Golf Courses in the World List, of which, only 362 courses are from the United States.

“We’re extremely proud of the recognition we continue to receive from national golf media,” said Randy Hernly, Director of Golf at Stonewall Resort.  “The course’s unique design – incorporating the undulating hills and picturesque lake – coupled with the hole layout that allows you to play to your own ability, make this, truly, one of the best golf courses in the country.”

Hernly said guests can take advantage of The Stonewall Golf Getaway Package throughout the summer.  Mid-week, double occupancy rates start at $121 per person plus tax and includes 18 holes of golf with cart, practice facility privileges, accommodations in the Adirondack-style lodge, and breakfast in Stillwaters restaurant.
