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.

Plenty of ups and downs

I live quite close and on a soggy Labor Day I ventured over to check the place out. The elevated location offers unique views of western Pennsylvania. Not exactly beautiful but unique none the less. As soon as i walked in the pro shop some guy behind the counter barked "she'll be right back". I was a bit confused as if he was speaking with someone that he had previously conversed with. Eventually a nice enough female asked if I was going to play 9 or 18 and 18 would be 50 bucks as it was a holiday. I told her that I saw on "golf now" that there was 18 holes for 30 bucks if they would honor that. She told me I had to get that deal through them... So I jumped on my phone and $24.75 later I was sent to the first tee. I was paired up with 2 other singles and they sent us out in 3 separate carts. Very nice guys and we all played a similar game. The carts have gps and were new and well maintained. But due to the weather we were kept to cart path only. There were multiple fairways under water. The course definitely was a challenge. Many holes had varying elevations. There is a par 3 that has to drop like 9 stories. It only plays 110 but must have been 150. Pretty cool. Unfortunately for the one downhill there were plenty uphill. Some even led to multiple blind shots. 18 especially. The greens were pretty quick and had undulations which without careful putting could easily be a 3 jerk. I will for sure play this course again. I hope a bit more course familiarity can offer some better approaches on those mentioned blind shots.

Beautiful Views

Beautiful course in great shape. Unbelievable views on just about every hole. Near perfect conditions especially for this late in the year. Staff was friendly and helpful. We ate at the restaurant afterwards and the food was very good. I would recommend anyone in the Pittsburgh ares play this course at least once. I also highly recommend riding even if you usually walk. The course is very hilly but still very playable.

Aeration

its a beautiful course, but the fairways were full of aeration, big dirt clumps covered the entire course on the fairways, so i am sure this is not a common thing, but it was frustrating with playing in that and also the constant lawn care trying to pick it up. maybe i just went there on a bad day, haha

I give Thumbs up !!

The course was in great shape but it is a tough track. You must be able to hit all kinds of shots there. Sometimes you would hit the fairway and your ball would roll down the hill because it's so steep.

Great course, amazing views.

The course was in excellent condition with very fast greens. A bit on the short side and a lot of "target shooting" tee shots. Used a driver maybe 5-6 times. Par 70, no par 5s on the front.

Exactly How I Remembered It

Greens are in impeccable shape and the course is in, overall, great shape. I would recommend bringing many golf balls, as any errant tee shot usually means a lost ball. Super difficult course, but there are scoring opportunities if tee shots are accurate.

Sgt Hacker

As a 1st-time player here, I found the course as challenging as you read about, Be prepared to play station-to-station golf with some steep downhill and uphill shots, as well as blind shots on which you need to follow the posted flags, trees and towers as guideposts. If you are accurate with your driver, you can use it, but if you are good with your long irons, you may wish to stick with them. I lost 8 balls by driving though the fairway or just not aiming properly. Fast, firm greens. Had a GREAT time, as I played with 3 others who knew the course, the weather was sunny & 78 w/slight breeze, and the pro shop/restaurant/beverage cart staff worked hard to provide great service. I might mention that the round was lengthy due to a heavy late Sat. afternoon crowd of Beginners, but the terrain & the vistas made up for it.

Beautiful, but TOUGH

The course is set high above one of the "three rivers" with wonderful views from most holes. It was in very good shape, although I would remind golfers to replace divots and fix ball marks on the greens. The greens were true and well-kept. There were a few blind holes, which made it difficult, as well as narrow fairways. That said, I lost three balls during the entire round and was quite pleased with my play. I would definitely play this course again, and I recommend it to folks, as long as you hit the ball STRAIGHT!

Late afternoon with a threat of rain.

We had a 5:26 tee time and got right off. Course was in great shape. The only issue was it rained on holes 14&15 and the in cart scorecard did not work nor did the GPS. Overall we had a great time and play this course regularly.

Unique, Great views and challenging

This was the most interesting course I have played this year. Reminded me a little of course I played outside Pinehurst called Tabacco Road. Blind shots , Steep slopes on most holes, Dramatic elevations that were interesting but shooting a 94 I still lost 8 balls, Now having played the course, the next time would be better but its still a tough course if you cant keep it straight. Was lots of fun and entertaining but losing all those balls wasn't good for score.

Long day!

My wife and I signed up for a tee time on Golfnow.com. We arrived about 45 minutes prior to our tee time. The gentleman in the pro shop said go ahead to the first tee and that the starter may get us out early. He paired us up with a father son twosome. The starter warned us that play would be slow. The foursome in front of our group were unbearably slow. By the time we got on the third tee, the GPS in the cart said that the time elapsed was 1:06...3 minutes behind pace of play. I don't know who comes up with the pace of play but if 1:06 for two holes is only 3 minutes behind pace but that person needs their position evaluated. I am an average golfer with a 12 handicap and my wife does not hit a ball further than 120 yds. We were never permitted to play through. I think a Ranger could have helped this issue. Next we arrive at the 9th tee and are asked if we would like to order anything from the clubhouse. My wife and I both ordered a hot dog with fries, a soda, and a draft beer. 20 minutes, after waiting to hit our tee shot on the par 3 9th and playing the hole ourselves, we arrived at the clubhouse to a waiting time of 15 more minutes for our fries. Then the bartender finally decided to ask us what we wanted to drink. Our playing partner twosome only played 9 holes. We arrived at the 10th tee only to notice that two groups had jumped in front of us. Now we had to wait on the previously mentioned slow foursome and two more groups of twosomes. We joined up with a twosome that came up behind us. My wife and I had to quit after the 15th hole due to time restraints. It was already 6:10pm and we started at 1:45. As we rode past the slower foursome, there wasn't another group in front of them for the three hole ride in to the clubhouse. I enjoyed the condition of the course and the degree of difficulty of the course but probably will not come back due to the service.

Course was in very good shape but overall the layout on the front nine was a bit repetative. The back nine was very good and very enjoyable. I would play again for the discounted rate.
