Golf Course Information
One of only a handful of elite courses to open in 2017 and the only Mid-Atlantic layout, Nemacolin's newest Pete Dye designed Shepherd's Rock was nominated as the "Best New Course" by Golfweek.
"It is a great combination of the most unique and enjoyable golf holes we have built, combined with the stunning mountain top environment of views that speak to your soul." - Tim Liddy, Golf Course Architect
High atop the Pennsylvania Allegheny Mountains, the 7,290-yard Shepherd's Rock golf course offers extraordinary golf in a unique setting. The course has a USGA rating and slope of 74.7/138 from the championship tees. The rolling bucolic terrain is ideal to fully utilize Dye's brilliant imagination in fashioning an outing that is both fun and challenging for golfers. The layout rivals the highest-rated golf courses in the country and is a perfect companion to Nemacolin's PGA TOUR tested Mystic Rock.
