Resort set to open golf course

Landau Eugene

Murphy Jr. to headline evening entertainment

WESTON – The Arnold Palmer Signature Course at Stonewall Resort opens March 29 for the 2014 season with special rates and an April Fools Golf Tournament March 30.

To celebrate the new season, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., West Virginia native and the 2011 winner of NBC TV’s America’s Got Talent, will offer a special “lounge-style” evening concert in the Stonewall Resort ballroom. The March 29 event is open to the public and tickets are available by visiting or by calling 703-268-4218.

“From one of America’s greatest pastimes to one of West Virginia’s most celebrated crooners, March 29 is going to be a special time to be at Stonewall Resort,” said Steve Ludwig, director of sales and marketing. “Guests can take advantage of a great day of golf on one of the state’s most acclaimed courses and then relax to the cool sounds of Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. as he performs Great American Songbook classics from The Rat Pack.

“Murphy will be accompanied by his dynamic small jazz combo, giving fans the chance to see him as never before, in an up-close-and-personal setting that will highlight his smooth vocal style on all-time classics and a first listen for tracks from his upcoming third album,” Ludwig said.

The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the resort ballroom, restyled in a 1950s jazz club motif complete with a dance floor. Concert tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door, with a limited number of VIP tables up front which will include a meet-and-greet and photo with Murphy and the band for $50. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the resort website at, at or by calling 703-268-4218.

“Anticipation for the upcoming golf season is building by the day and the Palmer Signature Course – recently ranked No. 57 ‘Best Resort Course in America’ by Golf Week – will be primed and ready for play March 29,” Ludwig said.

For those interested in removing the winter rust, an April Fools Golf Tournament will be offered the next day, March 30, with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Golfers should contact the Golf Shop at 304-269-8885 to register for the tournament and reserve tee times.

“Whether you are a golfer, music enthusiast, nature lover or someone who likes to spend time in the spa, Stonewall has something for everyone the final weekend of March,” Ludwig said.
