Rating 68.2

Rolling Fields Golf Course in Murrayville, also known as "The Fields" to regulars, boasts fast greens that are some of the area's best. The layout stretches across rolling green hills sprinkled with mature trees. There are plenty of interesting holes but the golf course is player-friendly enough for beginners to approach with confidence. The front nine is fairly straightforward with only trees and the occasional bunker causing trouble. The course gets more challenging on the back nine, which starts with the longest par 4 on the backside. Accuracy is a necessity on this tough hole with a narrow fairway and small green. Rolling Fields Golf Course boasts one of western Pennsylvania's premier finishing holes, a stunning par 4 with a lake that guards the front of the green. Even with all that the course offers, it is still one of area's most affordable.

No way 4 Stars!

The golf club owners or operators must be writing their own reviews. There is no way anyone objective gave this course four stars. The fairways are like cow pastures that have been landscaped by goats. They are patchy and rough. Of course, next to the cart paths , they are a smooth Parkway. If you had back problems, you would be on your way to the chiropractor or the emergency room after you’re around. If you didn’t have back problems, you will have them when you’re finished. All the ground is hard as a rock. The greens, although very green, are hard as granite. I put several good shots into greens that bounced at least 10 feet in the air, and then bounded merrily off the back. Not a ball mark yo be seen anywhere. ( I guess that is a good thing! ) No green would hold any shot at all. Additionally, they are unbelievably slow. It is very difficult to make yourself hit the ball hard enough to get it to the hole, even on a downhill putt. In addition, the distance markers are way, way off. The hundred yard markers are somewhere between 60 and 70 yards away from the center of the green. Some of the 150s were close to accurate, but most were not. The course has a lot of promise, but right now the main thing I would say that deserves four stars , Or rather the only thing that deserves four stars, is a very nice clubhouse and a very friendly staff.

EXCELLENT PLAY FOR GOLF

It was hot in the 90 degrees and the breeze helped especially in the shade. Yes shade. The greens are great and the fairways allow the roll. No.bagels.
It is Always fun and challenging to play this course. Your fellow golfers are respectful to each other. It is like playing with Family. Great food and a great bar. Come and enjoy.

I like the course

Rolling Fields is a challenging short course that has multiple holes that require good shot placement. It is not a well maintained course, but it isn't a cow pasture with a green. I've played far worse and far better. The staff is friendly and they have the minimum in amenities, a bar with hot dogs. I like playing but I won't pay the normal $35 fees, I look for specials as I don't think it is worth $35.

Challenging but Fun

This course lives up to it's name. Very tough greens and several hidden tee/approach shots unless you drive the ball extremely well. I'd play here again but I'd have to have someone help me track my ball. Lots of trees with lots of pine needles. All in all, fun but hard.

Every Day Is A Good Day To Play Golf

I played after we had some rain and the course was in good shape. Parts of the course needed cut but otherwise everything was great. This is a very friendly course to play. Great pro at the course.

Good place to play.

The course is player friendly except for the sandtraps. They need some sand. The course is woman friendly. We actually have the chance to get on the Green in regulation. I am going to play in a league at Fields.

Won't be Back

As the name suggests, the course is very up and down and angled fairways. Many blind tee shots and shorter than normal. I consider myself an average golfer at best I played from the blue and it was very short. Parking lot is tiny & overall not a great value. I unfortunately will not be back.

Wide enough to slice.

Nice easy course to score well. Not long from senior tees. Well maintained green even for this time of year.

Great course

First time golfing at this course and the course has nice wide open fairways perfect for your average golfer or novice. Challenging 18th hole in my opinion because of the pond you have to hit over. The only negative thing I will say is they didn’t have a course official maintaining pace of play, felt rushed every hole but when your not a good golfer I guess you can expect that anywhere. Atleast when there’s someone keeping an eye on the play they can make it more suitable for everyone. Overall great experience. Will return for sure!

How To Enjoy Golf, Play at Rolling Fields

The layout of the course to me is exciting. The course is taken care of constantly. The greens are great. I guess what is best is the course is very fair. You drive a good ball you are rewarded. If you mess up yes that normally brings trouble.

It is a great enjoyable time. With the beauty of the course and those challenging fairways.

Yes I love playing golf at Rolling Fields.
