Rocky Gap Casino Resort, a AAA Four Diamond Hotel nestled in the Appalachian Mountains in Flintstone, MD, offers an award-winning golf course, luxurious amenities, a variety of restaurants for all occasions, spaciously distanced outdoor activities, and a high-energy casino experience—all set to the natural beauty of Rocky Gap State Park.
Rocky Gap features Maryland’s only Jack Nicklaus Design Golf Course. The course is easily accessible from Exit 50 on I-68, but while playing you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away. The design takes advantage of the location among the undulating hills of the ageless Appalachian Mountains and the blue waters of the adjacent lake.
Golfers of all skill levels are drawn to the challenges and uniqueness that this 18-hole mountain course provides. The front nine is carved from mountainous, tree-lined terrain with numerous dramatic elevation changes, while the back nine is spread across expansive, gently rolling meadows. Five tee boxes per hole allow all players to adjust the level of challenge to their handicap. The course is a 7,000-yard, par 72, and also features a 50-spot driving range, two large putting greens, two chipping areas, practice bunker and club rentals.
From now until Sept.1, you can take lessons from Rocky Gap Golf Professional Rick Flowers. A PGA member and head golf professional, Rick has been a Class “A” member of the Professional Golf Association since 1994. He spent 1997 to 2001 teaching the game of golf to a nationwide audience as a member of the world’s largest golf instruction academy, the John Jacobs Golf School—home to four of the “Top 50” Golf Magazine instructors during that time. And for a limited time, when you buy one round of golf, you get one free!
