Wisp Golf Course has been named by Golfstyles Magazine as one of “100 Must-Play Courses of the Mid-Atlantic.” Taking advantage of the base of the ski slopes, this course is designed using their natural contours. Mix in spectacular mountain views, this 72 par championship course will provide excitement and challenges for all players. http://www.wispresort.com/wisp/info/s.golf.aspx
Lodestone Golf Course, a new course to our area, is located on a mountain ridge on top of Wisp Mountain. This course is a Hale Irwin Signature design in collaboration with golf architect Todd Schoeder. What exactly does this mean? I was curious. It seems that Hale Irwin is an American professional golfer and one of the few in history to win 3 U.S. Opens. He later developed a career as a golf course architect, designing some of the most prestigious and challenging courses to date.
