Twin Falls State Park is located in Wyoming County between Mullens and Pineville. The park features a Par 71 championship course as well as a 47-room lodge with fitness center and indoor pool, 14 vacation cottages and a 50-site campground. Noted for extensive watchable wildlife, the golf course is situated in a lush valley with the Black Fork stream meandering throughout the course.

The original nine-hole course opened in the late 1960s and was designed by Geoffrey Cornish. The course was expanded to 18-holes in the mid-‘80s following a George Cobb design plan. Signature holes include an elevated tee on Hole 4 and picturesque tees with rock outcroppings on Hole 14, yielding an expansive view of the back nine layout.
