Weston, W-Va. – The King’s Course at Stonewall Resort, a short golf course set within the existing Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course and offering a unique set of tees that allows golfers the option of a 2,600-yard course, has been recognized as one of the best short courses in the nation, according to Eric Hart (also known as the MobileGolfer), Associate Editor for Golf & Travel at GolfTripX.com.

According to the “MobileGolfer”, who has stayed at 250-plus resorts and hotels around the world and played 500-plus golf courses:

“As a proud, badge-wielding member of Arnie’s Army, I try to play every Palmer course that I can. Deacon’s Lodge (in Minnesota) is my favorite full-length U.S. Palmer design. Ireland’s Tralee my favorite internationally. And this 18-hole course, (while it is overlays the existing championship course) tipping out at only 2,600 yards, qualifies as my favorite Palmer short course. Complemented finely by its setting on the bluffs over the West Fork River in picturesque Roanoke, the short course gives you new looks and play angles into each of the Palmer signature holes, making the big course much more playable for everyone and a great amenity at a resort with many other great amenities (awesome indoor-outdoor pool).”

Randy Hernly, Stonewall Resort PGA Golf Professional, said, “We’re pleased to see the national golf media recognize what our guests have known for a while; that we have a gem of a short course here in the hills of West Virginia.  The King’s Course presents the quality of an Arnold Palmer Signature Course at a more comfortable length offering youth, beginner golfers and skilled players alike the option to try a different approach to the game and our course.”
