With more than 100 courses spread across West Virginia, golfers are never far from the fairways. The state that became home to America’s first golf club in 1884– with a modest 9-hole course in a pasture– now boasts championship courses designed by such golf legends as Arnold Palmer, Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus and Robert Trent Jones Sr.

Mountains and valleys provide spectacular backdrops at state park resort courses, and at private resorts such as The Greenbrier, which hosts the PGA Tour Greenbrier Classic. Special packages pair golf with resort lodging and amenities, and the WV Golf Association VIP card grants you special access to courses and amenities.
