Situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Wheeling, W.V., Oglebay offers exceptional overnight accommodations, world-class amenities and 1,700 acres of year-round recreational opportunities. Swimming, tennis, horse stables, miniature golf, fishing, miles of paved walking/jogging trails, shopping, sightseeing, and visiting the West Spa and 30-acre Good Zoo are among the numerous activities onsite.
Once the estate of Earl W. Oglebay, the resort and conference center land dates back to the late 1700s. Upon his death in 1926, Oglebay willed his property to the people of Wheeling for as long as “they operate it as a place for public recreation.” Today it is the only self-supporting public municipal resort in operation. Funded mainly through its resort operations, Oglebay has more free activities than many facilities of its type in the country.
Oglebay is best known for golf as the resort presents four courses, including two championship layouts at the Speidel Golf Club. The par-71 Arnold Palmer design is a modern links layout that takes advantage of the rolling terrain with strategically-placed bunkers, contemporary mounding and ample-size greens. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the Jones Course is draped over the hills and dales of a former dairy farm, and hosted the West Virginia LPGA Classic for 11 years.
