Another chance to try your golf luck at
Rocky Gap Resort and Casino
September 22-24, 2023
ASGA-DC is taking a weekend road trip to play the golf course at the Rocky Gap Resort and Casino. Rocky Gap Casino Resort is located in Rocky Gap State Park near Cumberland in the heart of Allegany County in Western Maryland. A AAA 4-Diamond Award® and TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning resort, Rocky Gap offers a casino, hotel, conference center, two restaurants and a deli, the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Maryland, a spa, indoor pool, fitness center, pro shop, self-parking, and several outdoor recreational activities The course is easily accessible from exit 50 on I-68, about one hour west of Hagerstown, MD, but while playing you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away. The design takes advantage of the location among the undulating hills of the ageless Appalachian Mountains and the blue waters of the adjacent lake.
The front nine is carved from mountainous, tree lined terrain with numerous dramatic elevation changes, while the back nine is spread across expansive, gently rolling meadows. Five different tees per hole allow all players to adjust the level of challenge to their handicap. The course also has a driving range, two large putting greens, two chipping areas and a practice bunker.
It’s been six years since ASGA-DC has played Rocky Gap, and we are up to the challenge!
Optional Round: On the drive up to Rocky Gap, we are also offering an optional round of golf on Friday at the Whitetail Golf Course with tee times starting at 11:00 am. 20 minutes west of Hagerstown, MD, and just north of the Whitetail Ski area, the Whitetail Golf Course, designed by Rick Robbins, uses the natural topography to create both a challenging and scenic course that will please golfers of all ability levels
This is your last ASGA-DC road trip before the end of the ASGA-DC golf season, so do not delay, sign up now!
Whether you play Whitetail or drive straight through to the Resort, we will gather at 7:30 pm Friday for a meet and greet.
