Acclaimed Western Maryland Resort Receives National, Local Recognition
(CUMBERLAND, Md.) – Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort – home to the state’s only Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course – today announces Corporate & Incentive Travel Magazine has honored the facility with its prestigious Greens of Distinction award. This marks the fifth time Rocky Gap has received the publication’s lofty commendation.
For the Greens of Distinction, subscribers rate hotels, resorts and conference centers based on the condition and design of their golf courses, golf staff assistance, tournament arrangements, meeting facilities, and overall hospitality.
“We place a great deal of emphasis on providing each and every guest with a top-of-the-bell-curve experience,” says General Manager Tim Grambley. “We’re extremely proud of all we do 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 – from the golf course, to the restaurants, spa and meetings facilities.”
A very select group of only 35 nationwide Greens of Distinction award winners was determined as a result of an open ballot provided within Corporate & Incentive Travelmagazine’s May issue. These winners will be honored and presented with an engraved plaque at a black-tie gala in New York City Nov. 8.
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, destination reports, and more.
The championship golf course at Rocky Gap Lodge & Golf Resort – a AAA Four Diamond property – also won First Place in the Cumberland Times-News Readers’ Choice awards as their “Favorite Golf Course.” The course stretches to more than 7,000 yards from the tips and features five sets of tees to accommodate players of all abilities.
