Snowshoe, W. Va. – On Tuesday, October 13, Up to Par Management announced a multi-year contract extension with The Raven Golf Club at Snowshoe Mountain Resort in Snowshoe, W. Va. Up to Par established its agreement with The Raven in 2012, and with this extension will continue to oversee sales, marketing and golf operations.
