LakeView Golf Resort
For years Lakeview Resort in Morgantown, West Virginia has been the golf get-away of choice for thousands of golf groups in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. PA Turnpike 43 brings you to within a mile of the entrance of the resort and with easy access from I-79 and I-68 it is a very easy drive.
When choosing a golf destination it starts and ends with golf and that is what makes Lakeview Resort so special. It offers two championship courses, Lakeview and Mountainview, they are unequalled for beauty, playability and challenge. TheĀ legendary Lakeview Course boasts magnificent tree-lined fairways, perfectly manicured greens, and has been ranked among the top 100 courses in America. Lakeview has many signature holes, but the most talked about hole is the 620 yard 18th. This is one of the most challenging par 5’s in golf, and after 50 years of play, the hole has never been reached in two. The Lakeview Course has been the home of many prestigious tournaments. The Mountainview Course winds through the heart of the Allegheny forest and features gently rolling fairways, scenic views, and well manicured undulating greens. There are many breathtaking holes, but the par-4 10th hole offers a very challenging approach with a gorgeous view of Cheat Lake in the background.
Lakeview Golf Resort & Spa was founded in 1950 by Ward Christopher who had a vision of a challenging golf course nestled next to Cheat Lake in Morgantown. Golf architect James Harrison built the initial 9-hole Lakeview Course.
In 1954, nine additional holes were added to transform the layout of the golf course into a championship caliber course. Lakeview’s reputation began to grow in the 1950s. In 1958, Sam Snead won the West Virginia Open and set the course record of 67.
In 1971, Jack Nicklaus played Arnold Palmer in an exhibition match and tied the course record, which still stands today. In 1984 Lakeview commissioned famed golf course architect Brian Ault, to design a second 18-hole course, appropriately named Mountainview.
Besides outstanding golf, Lakeview has 187 newly remodeled deluxe guest rooms, 52 two-bedroom executive townhouses, 2 full-service restaurants, 34,000 square feet of function space for meetings, a fitness
complex complete with indoor tennis and basketball courts, a climbing wall and
aerobic facilities. Spa Roma, a full service spa and salon, offers everything from skin and health care to massage therapy and Vichy baths. Lakeview also offers family-oriented recreational activities and events for the kids. An extensive million-dollar resort renovation project has been completed.
When you’re finished with golf there is no better place to unwind, have a drink, eat great food and let the fun continue at our Legends Sports Bar and Grille looking over the 18th green. Lakeview Golf Resort & Spa is within driving distance of Cooper’s Rock National Park, where mountain biking and hiking on historical trails are added attractions.
