Apollo Elks Country Club, situated just northeast of Pittsburgh, is considered one of the area's must-play golf courses. It has appeal for a wide range of skill levels with a layout that is challenging enough for seasoned golfers but also not too difficult for beginners to approach. There is an interesting mix of holes ranging from reachable par 5s to short, tough par 3s and each hole has a distinct character. The greens are fast and the gently rolling terrain provides some subtle breaks that can be tricky. Bunkering is sparsely but strategically placed along the fairways and greensides. There are also a few water hazards that come into play at Apollo Elks Country Club. The round has plenty to hold your attention but don't forget to stop and admire the beautiful western Pennsylvania scenery.

Nice greens and tee boxes. Many par 4 holes. Liked the course. But the cart paths are quiet rough.

Apollo Elks

The course was in good condition considering the amount of rain recently experienced. I personally enjoyed it as it is, in my opinion, an expansive property. Some green to tee rides are a beautiful jaunt through the woods so follow the signs. The greens were in impeccable condition and sometimes deceiving. The fairways were well maintained and the roughs were as they should be. Thoroughly enjoyed the round.
