New Guide Showcases
WV Golf Courses
West Virginia's Division of Tourism and Miles Media Group publishing company have released the 2007 "Official West Virginia Golf Guide," providing information about the state's many golf courses.
The 32-page, full-color publication includes regional maps and grids showing the location, contact information and course details for more than 100 golf courses, clubs and resorts statewide.
Notable golf courses featured in the book includes Oakhurst Links, Americas first organized golf club, established in 1884; there players still use hickory clubs, hit gutta percha golf balls off sand tees and grazing sheep are the fairways groundskeepers.
In addition, the guide features information about mountain and valley courses and those which offer a combination of both. A "Beyond the Links" area includes ideas about how visitors may combine other outdoor activities around the state with a golf trip.
The golf guide is free. For a copy, contact the state tourism office at 800-CALL-WVA or http://www.wvtourism.com.
