Stonewall Resort recognizes 20th anniversary of the Palmer Golf Course May 30 with two-man scramble event

Weston, W.Va. – Stonewall Resort will recognize and celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Palmer Course on Monday, May 30 with a special two-man golf scramble and related activities.

“On May 30, 2002, golf legend Arnold Palmer christened his namesake golf course at Stonewall Resort by conducting a hitting clinic from the driving range and playing multiple holes. In front of nearly a thousand fans who followed him around the course he exclaimed, ‘It’s better than I ever would have imagined!’,” said Andre’ D’Amour, general manager at Stonewall Resort. “We are proud the course, which remains one of the region’s top-rated golf courses, has improved with age and continues to draw visitors from near and far.” 

D’Amour noted that during the opening event, Palmer also said, “We are proud to call this an Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. Not only is it visually appealing, but the fact that you’ve got 6 separate tee boxes allows the golfer to choose his or her level of challenge…Folks are going to want to play it again and again.” 

Arnold Palmer and his company, Arnold Palmer Design Company, designed the championship 18-hole course which incorporates the lake and the native rolling terrain in its layout.

Erik Larsen, golf course architect for the Stonewall project, said at the time, “From the beginning we had high hopes for this course.  The history surrounding the area, the gorgeous scenery and level of playability make this course special.” 

D’Amour noted that the course opened to public play on June 1, 2002.

In recognition of the 20th Anniversary, the resort will host a two-man golf scramble on Monday, May 30. Prizes will be awarded. To register for the event, contact the Golf Shop at (304) 269-8885.
