Grand View Golf Club in North Braddock is one of the area's most challenging layouts. The course's 160 acres were carefully carved from a woodland hilltop. From its perch, the golf course overlooks the Mon Valley with views stretching to the Edgar Thompson facility, Western Pennsylvania's first and last major steel mill. The distinctive layout will test your creative shot-making skills. It may seem relatively short at 6,111 yards from the back tees but it feels much longer thanks to the rolling fairways and undulating greens. The tight fairways are lined with cliffs, brush, and trees, leaving little room for error. You should also be prepared for forced carries and tricky doglegs. Grand View Golf Club can be punishing for the low handicapper, but high handicappers will find this course to be a unique test of their skills.

It’s a fun and challenging course.

The course was in nice shape! The blind holes can be challenging. Certainly will play again!
One thought though, when the ground is saturated, maybe they could steamroll the lumps on the cart paths.

Unique

Played labor day one the the first to tee off so pace of play was great, however I am sure it slowed way down as the day went on as there were many waiting to tee off when we finished at 11am. The best feature was its lay out, blind holes and greens uphill and way down hill. The cart paths are not ideal but so many around Pittsburgh aren't much better . They need to clean up the beer cans that people toss into the wooded areas throughout the course.

Very enjoyable!

1- excellent- one must first come for the view. Well worth the visit even if you are not a golfer.

2- Fairways need some water.

3- Greens are in satisfactory shape

4- On occasion when I come as a single or even when playing alone I will encounter a NEWBE- one who is playing there for the first time. I will gladly join then, usually at the first tee. I try and give them tips about where to hit the ball. Some holes you have no idea where to hit or how far- Holes that one would need advice for are
2, 3, 6, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18.

5- I don"t usually spend time talking the the employees in the building. They do their task well and I don't have any issues.

6- Dining area et al- no comment. Maybe once a year I will sit and eat lunch there.

Nice course

I liked playing there. Good course with lots of elevation changes. The greens are nice but the tee boxes are probably the worst I’ve ever seen. $50 for two of us to play 18 holes was a great price though.

Worst shape ever

I have been playing Grandview since it opened. I have a league there and play just about every week. The course is totally burnt out. The cart paths are undrivable in the driving range is barely functional. It’s sad to see it in this condition.

Over priced and under kept

this is a course that I play when I can't get in anywhere else. I do t particularly like playing because it's over played and poorly kept. They charge Oakmont fees for an average course. 35 should be their price point not 50. Greens look like they have seen better days and the tee boxes are nonexistent like hitting from a mud pit.
If you're going to charge premium prices keep the place looking premium.

Zero stars if I could

Staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was in terrible condition. Greens & Fairways were dead and were riddled with a virus. The tee boxes were weeds 4” high. The driving range was garbage.

It may have been a nice course at one time, but don’t waste your time.

Course is in terrible condition

This used to be my favorite course - it was very well maintained and lots of fun. I even played in a league there for a while. It has been deteriorating for quite a while, and is now simply awful! It is all brown and hard as a rock - tough to find even a blade of grass. The cart paths appear to have been bombed and make for a VERY uncomfortable and dangerous ride. I have to think that the cart path conditions are extremely hard on the carts, too. The carts that used to be clean and well-maintained (when the course was being maintained) are now quite dirty. Although I used to take people there for a unique and challenging experience, it is now embarrassing to do so. It's a shame because we know it can be much better.

Course in horrible conditions

Greens burned out and fairways not great. Course layout is bad but that’s nature of GrandView due to landscape (target golf needed)(be prepared to loose many balls). I’m local and the price is too high for horrible course Conditions. It’s obvious no money is being put into course maintenance.

The scenery at this course is unmatched. Excellent views from just about every hole. Very challenging layout that makes the player hit golf shots and strategize.
As for the course condition.. Terrible. It looked liked the greens were not watered this summer, more dirt and sand than grass on them. The tee boxes were like hitting out of a sand trap. And the fairways were very bare.
They have a very special course but need to maintain better.

Surprised me

Course was in good shape considering how dry it has been. Incredible Weekday value for seniors at $28. Tee boxes need work, fairways were average to above average with greens in good shape. Overall, look forward to playing Grandview in the near future.

I play Grand View multiple times each week because of its price. The course is challenging, however, I recommend the course to golfers looking to improve accuracy while having a good time doing it! In my experience, the staff and maintenance crew create an exceptional golf experience.

Amazing Views, weird but fun course

For a hot deal rate of $28, it was a good value (anything over $35 would be too much). Most of the tee boxes and quite a few greens were burnt out, but with the drought this summer I don’t really blame them, have heard it’s in good shape during normal summers. Short, quirky course, only used my driver twice, need to hit a lot of irons and 3 woods off the tees due to blind shots and sharp turns.
Honestly if it wasn’t for the amazing views of the surrounding area this would just be another average course that I wouldn’t drive too but the views are simply stunning. Bring a camera and play this course at least once.
