MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – With the summer months inching closer, many are starting to think about summer plans and vacations, but there’s one summer destination within minutes of downtown Morgantown.
Lakeview Golf Resort is located off Interstate 68 in Morgantown near the Cheat Lake Marina.
According to the director of golf at Lakeview, Aaron Gizzi, the resort first opened 65 years ago and has been catering to a wide range of visitors ever since.
“Lakeview has been around for 65 years it has hosted all kinds of major events, you know from banquets to golf so that’s what really drives our business,” said Gizzi.
The director of sales, Tim Bucklew, said the largest attraction to the resort is the 35-hole golf course with gorgeous views of Cheat Lake throughout the greens.
“It’s a tree line golf course so you have to really strategize how you play it you know you don’t necessarily have to hit driver all the time the greens are really difficult when they’re fast so uh that’s a big part of the strategy as well,” said Gizzi.
“It’s the only public golf course that’s two championship golf courses in the Morgantown area, we do stay and play packages for golf, we do a lot of those from the three state area, Ohio, Pennsylvania we even get Canadians here,” said Bucklew.
Along with the great specialty deals for golfers the resort also offers a range of activities for both adults and children.
“Very kid friendly there’s a lot of stuff to do, we have a great kids camp that we offer all summer long that we’ll have you know anywhere from 80 to 100 kids to come participate they have a blast people want to do it every year,” explained Gizzi.
“With all the pools, we have a fitness center down there, we have a basketball court, tennis court there, you’re close to a couple different parks there’s Coopers Rock so there’s a lot kid wise here to do,” said Bucklew.
With the breathtaking views of Lakeview it is the continuous number one resort for those ready to tie the knot.
“We’re the number one wedding destination we do a ton of weddings every single year, you know we have 187 rooms, we have two condos, we have a great outdoor pool, so you can really get into anything you want here,” said Gizzi.
Lakeview is one of the staycation package deals WBOY is offering to anyone interested throughout the summer.
