Tee off at Pipestem Resort, one of three state park golf courses offering multi-park course access in 2014.

Three state park golf courses in West Virginia are providing guests full-season 2014 passes that include lodge stays, meal discounts, and access to other park courses.  According to the W.Va. Division of Natural Resources, passes are now available at Twin Falls, Pipestem, and Cacapon resorts and include two rounds of golf at other state park courses, including those at Stonewall Jackson and Canaan Valley.

The pass program, entitled Passport to Fun, includes add-on packages that incorporate swimming coupons for other state parks and a My Best Friend pass for a complimentary golf round. It also includes a pass for a complimentary mid-week, one-night lodge at Pipestem, Cacapon, or Twin Falls lodges that includes discounts for meals, admissions to the Blennerhassett Museum at Parkersburg, and rides on the Cass Scenic Railroad.

Bob Biroscak, golf professional at Pipestem, said the packages are designed to provide incentive for diverse family vacations that also feature golf.

“Believe it or not, golfers have other interests,” he quipped in a news release. “Introducing children and grandchildren to the game is always important, but so is a train ride at Cass or going fishing or camping at Holly River or Cedar Creek state parks.”

Each park’s season passes are specific to its course, and course use is subject to course limitations and available tee times. For more information, contact golf managers at the following parks:
