The Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia encompasses Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan counties among others and combines history and natural beauty making it an ideal golf destination.
Jefferson County is rich in American history from Harpers Ferry to Charles Town. You will find historical markers around every corner that highlight significant events and participants of our past. The county is now renowned for an incredible multifaceted entertainment center. Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races features live thoroughbred racing, slots and table games, live shows in the events center, and NOW sports betting. Add golf, and you have an action packed trip. Martinsburg in adjacent Berkeley County has an active downtown region and is situated conveniently to both I-81 and I-70 with the latter thoroughfare running directly through the county. Oddly enough Berkeley Springs is located in Morgan County and has become famous for their mineral waters, this country’s first spa, and a distinct downtown region.
Three golf facilities anchor this area. Locust Hill Golf Club is the home golf course for Charles Town. Water hazards come into play on 11 holes including an island green making for a very exciting round. Locust Hill Golf Club is known for outstanding conditions and a friendly atmosphere. A regional favorite, The Woods in Hedgeville has the 18-hole championship Mountain View course as well as the Stony Lick course, an 18-hole mid-length layout. These fun courses are draped in rich natural scenery and provide the opportunity for a 36-hole day. Robert Trent Jones designed some magic at Cacapon Resort in Berkeley Springs with 18 holes of uninterrupted golf set in the wilds of a West Virginia State Park. Cacapon has long been recognized as a piece of West Virginia golf heaven.
Several other courses make common selections for a stay and play golf trip to the Eastern Panhandle. Just across the state line to the south you’ll find many choices in both Winchester and Front Royal, Virginia, including Rock Harbor, Shenandoah Valley, Bowling Green, Blue Ridge Shadows, and Sly Fox. To the north, courses near Hagertown and Frederick, Maryland, and in Pennsylvania also make perfect additions. Those include Black Rock, Whitetail, Musket Ridge, Maryland National, and Richland.
The Eastern Panhandle of the beautiful state of West Virginia incorporates everything that makes this region so special. The tremendous golf only adds to its “heaven on earth” luster.
