Conley Resort & Golf plays across the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania, just north of Pittsburgh. The course is an enjoyable round no matter what skill level. It is not an overly difficult or long course, but it was never meant to be a formidably tough round. The design was meant to appeal to not only high handicappers but also golfers who are looking for a casual but interesting round. For this reason, the resort is an ideal place for a relaxed outing. The golf course is playable but that doesn't mean golfers won't come across a fair amount of challenges. The 13th and 18th are two particularly tricky holes. The former is a par 4 with six sand traps lining a narrow fairway, and the finishing hole is a par 3 with water lining another narrow fairway and a large pond behind the raised green.

Good course. Great value
Course was in good shape for being early in the season and having just rained. Layout is challenging while not being outrageously difficult. Not a long course from the white tees. The yardage on #1 is way shorter than what is advertised on the scorecard. It’s actually a short par 4 but listed as a 480 yd par 5. I hit driver, 9 iron to the green. Felt good to get that birdie after a two putt so I’m not arguing. Would return for sure.
Great course only one bad thing grass to bigh in front of greens the ranger is very considerate and friendly
First hole the ranger send us behind a big group had to wait for two foursomes on front and a twosome si we T 15min latter than my setup time had to skip two holes. Somebody is not doing their job right for sure!
All Downhill, not in a good way
Haven't played this course in about a year. The new owners don't seem to care about maintaining it. Great course for FREE ( to St. Barnabas residents) but not worth paying for. None of the fairways or rough were taken care of anymore. Grass clippings everywhere for your ball to hide under. Greens were not in great shape, bunkers were hard as a rock with rakes left in them. And, what's that smell? Sadly, it was once a nice, well maintained course. I am sure it will have patio homes for senior citizens on it soon!
Excellent shape for time of year
I was very impressed with how nice of shape the course was in for so early in the golf season. The greens were soft but quick. My only complaint is the length of the course from the senior tees being to short. When I play this course again it will be from the white tees.
A 4:57 tee time was too late in the evening to play 18 holes. I had to stop after 12 holes because of darkness.
Course needs more attention, better upkeep
The course and facility is tired looking. Fairways and greens needed to be cut lower. A lot of high weeds around the tees. Cart break barely worked and gas peddle was finicky as well as broken windshield. No excuse for bad maintenance. Ok for practice as long as you can get a low price on hold now. Definitely not worth regular price. Don’t think I will return. Sister course Suncrest down the road is in better condition and a better value.
Pace of play
Pace of play was slow due to holiday. I played as a single player front 9 but joined the twosome at the turn.
Short course , terrible layout
Hadn’t played the course in years prior to lastest round. I quickly remembered why. The 2 par 5’s (1 & 7) and the two par 3’s are the only holes that are worth playing on the front. The back 9 is a little better but the mirror image holes of 11 and 12 are two of the most ridiculous golf holes in western Pa. You will find yourself hitting short clubs (7-9irons) off both tees leaving a wedge to the green on both these holes. It seems they had space constraints and shoehorned these holes in to the area. The pace of play was also anger inducing. Word has it that a local retirement facility now owns the course and it’s residents golf for free. They were out in force hacking it up on the day I played there. Whereas we were 3 deep on every tee. Lakevue North is literally hundreds of yards away, and has a more challenging track with a better layout and it’s less $$$. I for one don’t intend on going back to conleys.
Needed a ranger
Took 2 hrs and 45 min to play Nine holes. I booked a tee time for 18. Never played the back nine I left of course. Every hole and every shot had to wait could not get into a rhythm. I play behind a group playing a scramble format however they all sat and waited to see each group approach hole 9. Then they proceeded to hold 10 making the wait even more longer rather then playing through.
Fun course to play. Rewards good shots. Very fair to play and not overly long. 18 is a very challenging par 3 finishing hole.
Good one to play
We are husband and wife senior golfers. White tee good yardage for me and red for my wife. Teamed up with another golf now gentlemen. Fun time, played 18 under 4 hrs. On a weekend. Will play again in the future.
Nice but nothing spectacular
Made to pair up because the course was "full" although there were twosomes in front and two pair behind us.
Live in FL so don’t play here very often. Course was in very good condition, with good pace of play. No pressure from behind, and only occasional waiting on the group in front. 2” rough made it difficult. Fairways were goods and the greens were consistent. Nice day.
Conley golf course
Enjoyed the course. Has a variety of holes and ends with a challenging par 3.
Nice round on a fun course
Conley’s has a little of everything and is a fun course to play. The course was in pretty good shape. The greens were good but the groups in front of us weren’t fixing their ball marks so we had double duty there. Pace of play was pretty good until we got to the turn where it was backed up two groups. Overall it was a good round on a course I enjoy playing.
