Rocky Gap Lodge & Resort - Maryland golf photos

Rocky Gap Lodge & Resort features a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course in the beautiful mountains of western Maryland in the Rocky Gap State Park.

The two nines are quite different from each other. The front is mostly heavily wooded on both sides of each hole and features several dramatic drops from tee to green. The back nine has some holes that are more wide open, although a handful, like the narrow par-5 15th, are tight and tree-lined as well.

Rocky Gap had some maintenance issues over the past few years, but new management and grounds crew have restored it to a well-conditioned upscale course once again.
