An exciting feature of the Allegany College of Maryland PGM Program is the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through internships at some of the best golf facilities in Western Maryland. Prior to graduation, students complete 6 weeks of internship experience. Working closely with a faculty advisor, students will be able to select an internship from any of the resorts, country clubs, or public courses in the area, as well as apply for internships outside the area with advisor approval. The internship program provides an excellent opportunity to network with members of the PGA of America. In addition to “green grass” facilities, internship opportunities are available in tournament operations, sales and marketing within the industry, and with other organizations.
Golf at Bedford Springs Resort spans a history of over 100 years. The resort is home to one of the oldest golf courses in North America, laid out in 1895 by Spencer Oldham. In 1923, Donald Ross created a course that was both challenging and yet one with the natural landscape, and upon its opening, was hailed as one of the best in Pennsylvania. The new course is something of a golf architectural museum—encompassing three distinct eras of golf course design that occurred from the 1890’s to the 1920’s.
The restored course preserves the historic holes and features designed by each of these famous golf architects. The Bedford Springs layout is a true masterpiece with a wide range of classic historic features not easily found today. These include five par fives and five par threes. Small greens, “serpentine” and “doughnut” bunkers, the “Volcano Hole” and “Tiny Tim”, a Tillinghast designed Par Three that has come to be known as one of the most celebrated holes in all of golf architecture, offer players an unparalleled golf experience.
Cumberland Country Club has 18 beautiful golf holes. We have 6 par threes, and 5 par fives. Par is 71/72 for the men and 72 for the ladies. The 18th hole, a dramatic finishing par 3, can be converted to a tricky par 4 in the spring and fall for the men.
The golf course is a traditional layout. It is a relatively short layout, tipping out at 6, 232 yards from the blue tees. Players do not have to be long to score well on this course, but you had better bring a great short game. The golf course becomes very difficult from 150 yards and in. Small and undulating greens provide a true test to players of all levels.
With a forested mountain setting and a pristine 243-acre lake, our Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course gives you a new perspective on the wonders of golf. Mr. Nicklaus created an exceptional challenge for golfers of all levels in the center of Rocky Gap State Park.
A par 72, 18 hole championship course provides two distinct golf experiences - the front 9 holes are carved out of the mountainside with dramatic elevation changes. The back 9 holes feature expansive, gently rolling fairways and scenic vistas, with Lake Habeeb and Evitt's Mountain serving as natural backdrops.
With 5-tee boxes per hole, and bent grass from tee to green, every player can adjust the challenge of the course to match their game. The exhilarating course presents a wide variety of shots that will test all golfers including the "Golden Bear" himself.
