One of two 18-hole courses at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Mystic Rock is a Pete Dye layout that dates back to 1995. Much longer and tougher than its sibling (Shepherd's Rock), Dye’s course was a fixture on the PGA Tour in the early 2000s when it hosted the 84 Lumber Classic on four occasions.
Resort owner Joe Hardy took on board many of the suggestions made to him by Tour officials and professional players during the hosting of the tournament and he subsequently called in Pete Dye to oversee a renovation program that included lengthening a number of holes and improving spectator areas around the course.At 7,550 yards in overall length, the course now plays to an incredibly difficult slope index from the back markers. We suspect, however, that 99.9% of resort guests who play here are more than happy to use one of the more sensible forward sets of tees – after all, why beat yourself up trying to emulate the pros who have long since departed?
Mystic Rock used to host the 84 Lumber Classic on the PGA tour. Usually ranked the best public course in PA. It is one of the more relaxing and enjoyable courses I've played. Great views up in the mountains on the border of PA and WV. Not an easy course, but not as challenging as some of Pete Dye's other championship courses.
