Rocky Gap receives Greens of Distinction Award for fourth time

CUMBERLAND, Md. -- Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort - home to the state's only Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed golf course - announces Corporate & Incentive Travel Magazine has honored the facility with its prestigious Greens of Distinction award. This marks the fourth time Rocky Gap has received the highest commendation.

For the Greens of Distinction, subscribers select hotels, resorts and conference centers that are committed to their golf courses, meeting facilities, food and beverage offerings and consistent customer service. The winners received high marks in overall facilities and amenities, hospitality, golf course conditions and design, tournament and teambuilding arrangements and golf staff assistance.

"We are extremely proud of all we do here at Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort and accepting awards such as the Greens of Distinction provides further evidence that we have our guests in mind in every aspect of the resort," says General Manager Tim Grambley. "Whether it's on the golf course, in the restaurants, spa or with our corporate and meetings guests, we're committed to excellence."

Winners of the Greens of Distinction award were determined as a result of an open ballot issued with the May issue of Corporate & Incentive Travel. Rocky Gap is among a very select group of only 46 winners nationwide this year, including Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club and Lodge, Kiawah Island Golf Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Winners were honored and presented with an engraved plaque at a black-tie gala in New York Nov. 10.

Corporate & Incentive Travel - an industry trade publication targeted at professionals who plan corporate meetings and incentive programs - focuses on site selection, accommodations and transportation, current legislation, conference, seminar and training facilities, budget and cost controls, and destination reports, and more.

Rocky Gap was also recently named an AAA Four-Diamond resort for the seventh consecutive year.

In addition to the championship golf course, luxurious spa and fine dining options, the popular multi-amenity resort offers:

  • 215 guest rooms, including suites and ADA-certified accommodations
  • Extensive meeting programs encompassing 15,000+ square feet of banquet and meeting space and numerous service options
  • Family and children's activities: horseback riding, paintball, climbing wall, rappelling, whitewater rafting, canoeing and a Scales & Tales animal program by the campfire
  • Corporate team building programs through Western Maryland Adventures
  • Special weddings programs by the lake with both indoor and outdoor settings
  • Beautiful lakeside pavilions

Conveniently located within two hours of Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Washington D.C., Rocky Gap is nestled at the base of Evitts Mountain, on the pristine shores of Lake Habeeb and sits at the gateway to beautiful Rocky Gap State Park.
