Detailed description

Oglebay Resort, The Palmer Golf Course, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Wheeling, West Virginia.

Oglebay Resort is a golfer's paradise with four golf courses including two championship courses. This municipal resort has three eighteen hole courses and an eighteen hole par 3 course.

The Crispin Course is the oldest course at Oglebay. This Devereaux Emmet designed course opened in 1926.

This 5,670 yard, very playable course is open year-round for players of all ability levels. A favorite for regional golf tournaments for over half a century, the Crispin course is situated in the very heart of Oglebay offering ever-changing views of the resort and surrounding hills.


In 1900, Cleveland industrialist Earl Oglebay purchased a stately mansion and surrounding 750 acres in West Virginia to serve as his country home. Upon his death, the philanthropist willed his spectacular country estate to the City of Wheeling for as long as they “shall operate it for public recreation.”

Today, Oglebay’s property, under the governance of the Wheeling Park Commission, has expanded to 1,750 bucolic acres including dramatic elevation changes, streams, and rolling hills. The family-friendly resort is an attractive year-round destination with myriad recreational activities and overnight accommodations.

Oglebay’s golf courses cater to all abilities, including two exceptional 18-hole championship layouts at The Speidel Golf Club designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Arnold Palmer. The Crispin – the resort’s 5,600-yard original course – is perfect for warm-up rounds, seniors, and beginners. Oglebay also offers two driving ranges and a family-friendly par-3 course.
