Say this for Nemacolin Woodlands — it’s hard to get bored in a setting that is equal parts Willy Wonka and Alice in Wonderland. Located 70 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, this Golf Magazine Silver Medal resort boasts first-rate lodging and lots of non-golf fun, including off-roading and shooting. The dining options range from upscale French to burgers, and rooms run from $309 per night.
The Mystic Rock course is exactly what you’d expect from Pete Dye: demanding but fair for anyone who can break 90. If you can’t, wander over to the shorter Links, and if you’re hopeless on both, there’s a David Leadbetter Academy on the premises.
Greens fees at Mystic Rock are $155 in the spring and fall and $185 in the summer; the Links rates are $84 and $65.
