The latest addition to the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort – the new Shepherd’s Rock golf course – is now open for play.

Designed by Dye Designs and architect Tim Liddy, the 7,151 yard course will complement the existing Pete Dye-designed Mystic Rock course at the resort in Farmington, Pennsylvania.

The course’s front nine is characterised by wide fairways and vistas of the surrounding Laurel Highlands. 

The back nine has a greater emphasis on shotmaking, with players having to negotiate a series of characteristic Dye mounds, wetland areas and clever green locations.

“Pete Dye and Tim Liddy have created a true golf masterpiece in Shepherd’s Rock, and we’re overjoyed with the results,” said Monte Hansen, managing director at Nemacolin. “Few resorts showcase 36 holes of this magnitude, positioning us at the pinnacle of premier golf destinations in the US.”
