Some of the top golf resort courses in Western Pennsylvania



Located in McHenry, Md., adjacent to Deep Creek Lake, Wisp has two 18-hole courses with vastly different looks, none more dramatic than Lodestone, a man-sized, 7,507-yard layout with massive, undulating greens, mounded bunker complexes and breathtaking vistas. Designed by Todd Schoeder and Hale Irwin, Lodestone has three par 5s longer than 600 yards, and only one par 4 –the 349-yard 14th — plays shorter than 424 yards. But because the elevation is 3,000 feet and most of the approaches play downhill, Lodestone doesn’t play as long as the yardage might suggest. Lodestone is in drastic contrast to the crafty resort course designed 30 years ago by architect Dominic Palumbo of Upper St. Clair, requiring shots through a variety of tree-lined fairways.
