Mountain Courses Golfer's Challenge £ By Ed Johnion J Editor; "B"onrfer/u/ Wen Virginia '·-· Ample rainfall, plentiful sunshine and 5 the kind of terrain that makes golf courses £ challenging account for the many splendid ? 18- and 9-hole layouts throughout the ;*. Mountain State. y At a site on Route 60 at White Sulphur" ? Springs, the first organized golf club in .^America was formed--Oakhurst Golf "'"Club, 1884, on the "Oakhurst" estate by the owner, Russell W. Montague, a New Englander, and Scotchmen: George W. Grant, Alexander M., and Roderick Me- Leod and Lionel Torrin. Within a "stone's throw" of the original Oakhurst Club are three championship IB-hole golf courses- among the finest in the world--at the Greenbrier Hotel. Kings, other royalty, U. S. Presidents and plain folks have played the links at this world famous spa. Uniquely the Department of Natural Resources supervised the construction of five golf courses and directs their operation ^-through its State Parks Division. Paul ·'Lemon, a long-time golf professional and C'greenskeeper manages the state courses. \.Lemon says, "All courses are becoming Clush, greens in excellent condition, and I ;'-am confident we will have a splendid year. "'All state park golf courses operate in the "'black requiring no subsidy for their opera- ~tion." "; At all state golf courses, golf architects I/have made careful use of the mountain ·^terrain, creeks, and manmade ponds to be ^ sure they measure to championship cali- ^ber, including the prescribed number of "^sand bunkers, for which frustrated golfers "·usually have less affectionate names. All -.these courses have modern clubhouses, 1'lockers, and immaculate shower and rest-rooms. Power and pullcarts are available -'at all locations. I- PIPESTEM STATE PARK-Two cours- ~'es. Par 3. and 18-hole championship ^'course. The Par 3 course, studded with T'dogwoods and pines, white sand traps, it - is a picture of beauty. It has the largest 7 greens of any Par 3 course in the world. '. Most holes average 190 to 200 yards. The 18-hole course at Pipestem, with championship standards, has the prescribed number of Par 5s, 4s, and 3s. This layout spans gently rolling mountain terrain. One Par 3 hole nuzzles the brink of the Bluestone Canyon. With so many dogwood trees, it is only natural-a Dogwood Open is held in May when these blossoms are in bloom. Pipestem's 18-hole course is 6,800 yards, Par 72, with 51 bunkers. Bill Robertson is the professional for both courses. Pipestem State Park is in southern West Virginia, Summers/and Mercer counties: ' TWIN FALLS STATE PARK-Also in the southern part of the state, in Wyoming County, this park has a 9-hole championship course, with two gar 5 holes. A Par 36, the course is 3,600'^yards. The layout' follows a meandering creek, having several ponds, all of which penalize wayward shots. The fairways and greens are of exceptional quality. Power and pullcarts are available. Joe Comer is the golf professional. CANAAN VALLEY STATE PARK- Located in the northeastern part of the state in Tucker County, this 18-hole, Par 72 course, is cradled in the lush Canaan Valley. With 51 white sand bunkers, dotted with spruce and maples, it is a particularly beautiful course of championship quality. Canaan has all golf facilities. Carl Kreyenbuhl is the golf professional. CACAPON STATE PARK-Located in the Eastern Panhandle, not far from Virginia and Maryland, in Morgan County, is the newest 18-hole championship golf course in the state park system. Designed by one of the world's foremost golf course architects, Robert Trent Jones, Cacapon's layout sprawls over 6,800 yards (Par 72) of relatively flat terrain. A duffer's nightmare, this challenging course has 72, bril : liantly white sand bunkers. This new layout has all modern golf facilities in this popular state park. Charles Fields is the golf professional. Kermit McKeever, veteran chief of West Virginia's state parks system, says flatly, "West Virginia's state park golf courses are the finest of all state park golf facilities in the nation," I agree. Cathedral Park Covers an area of about 160 acres. Cathedral Park is the only remaining virgin forest left in West Virginia, and the home of the state's largest tree, a giant hemlock with a circumference of 26 feet. A walk into this forest is a walk into the past: These massive and centuries-old trees were alive before the signing of the Declaration of Independence and give the visitor some impression of the great forests and wealth of natural resources that greeted the eyes of the first white settlers. The park abounds with wildlife and has many different walking trails. . Fairfax Stone. Is at the headwaters of the Potomac, the Fairfax Stone marks the boundary between Maryland and West Virginia as determined by the Supreme Court after a dispute between the two states. The original Fairfax Stone, a pyramid of sandstone bearing the letters "F X," stood 1 mile to the south. Placed in 1746, it marked the westernmost corner of Lord Fairfax's 6-million-acre grant, one of · the largest estates in the world. Silver Lake Silver Lake is a recreation area providing swimming and other waterbased activities. Fishing license not retired.
