The first set of stuff to go in will be a mix of what will eventually be longs and shorts and will play maybe 8000 feet with par of 65 or 66. It will be extremely physically demanding to play.

I am headed up there a week from tomorrow for an inspection- Nate is overseeing the work. We might put the baskets in then (poles are already in) but probably not. Tees are going to be a bit of a process but will be turf when done. My best guess on playability is late September as of now. Specialty treated lumber is pretty much unavailable right now so that is part of the hold up. I am trying to re-engineer some things using more readily available materials.

The park is super nice and the management there is vested in making it top notch. There is also a Pete Dye golf course on the property as well as huge lodge/hotel (reminds me of The Shining), cabins, etc.
Will this be a Pay to Play course John? I am really excited to play this course when it is available and will most certainly be renting a cabin on the property.

It will be free to play. I have been very impressed by the commitment of the State of West Virginia to its State Parks. Considerably different than here imo.

I mapped out Paw Paw to Great Cacapon - gives new meaning to the phrase "you can't get there from here."

And if the map says "lane and a half dirt" take them at their word.

I also prefer Woodshed but not by a lot. I think Whipping Post is more stressful with the one throw near the gigantic dropoff. But I always play both when I go.

"Far and away the most elevation of any course John's worked on" could be one helluva workout!
Uh, I have with Powerhouse Ally in Oahe Stake rec/park and Steamboat park. The river with bridges or Oahe dam makes something that is 5 miles away straight on, 10 miles away the close way and 15 over the dam route. Being we have 3 or 4th largest earth dam in the world it makes the route over dame longer then it needs to be.

I lived in Virginia for 13 years now and I don't even think I have seen a State park.

Virginia State Parks are consistently rated the best in the nation.

According to, um, the official tourism website for the Commonwealth of Virginia

seems a bit of a suspect source to me...

My daughter and I camped at Shenandoah River State Park last Thanksgiving weekend. It was a'ight. Nice trails and some gorgeous views .There were a decent # of campers that weekend, but I doubt more than 1/3 of the campsites were taken.... so running out of hot water was pretty lame.

Ludington State Park in MI definitely has nicer camping accommodations.

Virginia State Parks- "we have no money for anything and that would need to be approved at the state level"

West Virginia State Parks- "how much will it cost? We can figure it out"
