Detailed description of Oglebay Resort, Palmer Golf Course

Oglebay Resort, The Palmer Golf Course, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Wheeling, West Virginia.

Oglebay Resort is a golfer's paradise with four golf courses including two championship courses.

The Arnold Palmer Course is the newest course at Oglebay. This Arnold Palmer designed course opened in 2000.

The Arnold Palmer Course is a par 71 championship layout with six par-three holes, seven par-four holes, and five par-five holes. It ranges in distance from 6,800 yards from the championship tees up to 4,200 yards from the forward tees and is designed to accommodate golfers of all skill levels. The layout takes advantage of the existing terrain and with the addition of strategically placed bunkers, attractive mounding, and generous greens, the course's unique character was achieved.


In 1900, Cleveland industrialist Earl Oglebay purchased a stately mansion and surrounding 750 acres in West Virginia to serve as his country home. Upon his death, the philanthropist willed his spectacular country estate to the City of Wheeling for as long as they “shall operate it for public recreation.”

Today, Oglebay’s property, under the governance of the Wheeling Park Commission, has expanded to 1,750 bucolic acres including dramatic elevation changes, streams, and rolling hills. The family-friendly resort is an attractive year-round destination with myriad recreational activities and overnight accommodations.

Oglebay’s golf courses cater to all abilities, including two exceptional 18-hole championship layouts at The Speidel Golf Club designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Arnold Palmer. The Crispin – the resort’s 5,600-yard original course – is perfect for warm-up rounds, seniors, and beginners. Oglebay also offers two driving ranges and a family-friendly par-3 course.

Challenging layout carved in the mountain top of Wheeling's Oglebay Park. Great staff and accommodating. Greens are fast and undulating. Not for the faint of heart.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area
