Golf Digest Recognizes Seven Springs

The golf course at Seven Springs
Mountain Resort recently received a three and one half star rating in the
sixth edition of Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play. The rating is out of a
highest possible five star rating. The course opened in 1969, and it has been a popular spring, summer and
fall attraction for resort guests. “There is a dedicated staff here that
takes pride in maintaining the course and providing the best possible golf
experience to each and every guest who visits,” comments Matt Trimbur,
head PGA Professional. “We are proud to receive the recognition from the
readers of a well-respected publication,” adds Trimbur.

Places to Play began in 1963 as a Golf Digest insert. With the 6th
edition, some 20,000 Golf Digest readers have filled out course ballots,
sharing their opinions and experiences on more than 3,500 courses in North
America and the Caribbean.

Places to Play provides golfers with comprehensive information on public-
access golf courses. Golf Digest readers reviewed thousands of courses
they played over the previous year and rated them using a five-point scale
for five separate criteria: the overall golf experience, the value for the
money, the standard of service at the facility, the overall conditioning
of the course, and the normal pace of play for an 18-hole round of golf.
In addition, readers were invited to write comments on their experiences
at each of the courses they rated—both the good and the bad.

A team of 8 editors reviewed every comment—great care was taken to use
comments that were fair, accurate and representative of the sample. Reader
star ratings were averaged, then compiled on a bell curve to reflect a
course’s relative strength.

Seven Springs offers a variety of overnight golf packages throughout the
season. Golfers will enjoy the mountaintop course, the full service pro
shop and the menu of lessons from the PGA staff.


The Laurel Highlands resort offers plenty for golfers to do after they
finish their round, including a variety of dining options, lounges and a
line up of indoor and outdoor activities. Children are also likely to
enjoy the children’s programs and daily fun distractions that Seven
Springs offers.

“In addition to the overnight packages, we also offer great corporate
packages and special promotions for day guests,” says Trimbur. Seven
Springs’ golf season lasts through the end of October.

Seven Springs Mountain Resort is Pennsylvania’s largest ski and year round
resort. Located in Champion, the resort is easily accessible from either
exit 91 or 110 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. For more information on the
