Very enjoyable

I really enjoyed the course. The terrain is quite hilly and the designer did a nice job of incorporating the hills into the layout. There is very little water and is generally pretty forgiving if you're accuracy is a little off. Sand traps weren't great... extremely firm.

Pretty nice place to play

Good place to play golf. Generous fairways, smooth, true-rolling greens. Facilities are spartan, but they have a very nice range.

Other-Worldly Experience

This course is mostly a treeless, windswept moonscape. On many holes, there are no trees or other visual reference points, and distances can be illusory. I happen to like such courses, so I consider that a plus. The front 9 is virtually all open; the back is a little more hilly and has more visual definition, so there's a good variety there. Conditions were excellent. The fronts of most greens are cut perpendicular to the fairway in a straight line, inviting a bump and run, but care must be taken to avoid running right off the quick surfaces. I particularly liked #17, a shortish par-4 with an elevated tee and angled fairway. Pick your shot and strategy on this one. In all, one of my favorite recent courses.

Hidden Gem

I found the course through Top Ten Public Course rankings, and played it due to it's proximity to I-76. Beautiful layout, great vistas, and lots of elevation changes. It's been mentioned this was a private club before turning public. I don't see how the clubhouse was a private clubhouse. Practice facility was well maintained and amply supplied. Piece of advice: warm up from the far end of the practice range, where trees on the left side won't cut into the range. The course itself is challenging but fair. Having no local knowledge, the course really was a "what you see is what you get" except for maybe blind 3 tee shots -- 3, 6, and 12 - which were all holes with downhill slopes and open. Despite playing on a Tuesday, the course was busy and parking lot was full. We teed off shortly after 2:00 and was done by 6:15. One complaint was that a single player jumped in front of us making the turn on 10, while avoiding what seemed to be a league teeing off on 1 at the same time. This was after we were already waiting on the threesome ahead of us on the front 9. While the single did play through the threesome, we called the pro-shop to get a Marshall out. Marshall told us it was the owner of the course and he can do whatever he wants, and that we shouldn't press him. Talk about customer appreciation. All in all, fun course, very playable, very fair. Would play this course again.

Great Course

I only get to play this course once a year. I use GolfNow frequently to book tee times and this course is only listed in the spring. I look forward to playing this course every year. The course layout is beautiful. The greens are true and fast with carpet lined fairways. Very thick rough so you must keep it in the fairway. The clubhouse is small, hot dogs and hamburgers are the menu. I would play this course a lot if they would offer up some decent fares online. A must play if you are visiting the area.

Totter

Drove 4 hours to see the US open at oakmont and decided to play some courses on our way back...this course exceeded expectations, very fairly priced...the greens were very fast and true, the layout was interesting and the course was challenging especially off the tee (miss the fairway and you'll have some goofy lies)...i very very very much recommend this course, and I would drive 4 hours to play again

Mediocre

This used to be an excellent course when it was a private club , the condition is poor , the greens and tees were good but the rest of the course was disappointing , rough had a lot of holes in it and there were weeds throughout the layout. The practice area is awesome a huge tee and two short game areas , its a shame that they can't keep the course up because this is a well designed golf course.

Best in Pittsburgh area

Fantastic course that I have played over 10 times since it opened in 2002. Fairways were in excellent conditions except for the golfers who do not replace their divots, but the star of the course in layout and greens. Greens were immaculate with a very ball marks that were not fixed, but some golfers just don't care. Bunkers were firm but easy to hit out of. A few footprints in bunkers were noticed, but golfers need to rake the bunkers. Please play this course if you live within 2 hours of this course. You will not be disappointed.

Great course but need to work on the bunkers

I always wanted to play this course but never got the chance to play it. So I treated myself for my 30th birthday and went out. Great course, fast but fair greens. Played from the whites and it was a good challenge...can't wait to go back and play from the blues or championship tees. Oh downside is the bunkers. They aren't consistent. One could be field with what my buddy and I called, "kids play sand." The next one could be hard/dirt like sand. And some are filled in with grass. I know bunkers are hazards but just wish they were a little more consistent. Overall, great course. Plus...Monday and Tuesday's, $39 gets you golf with a cart, hotdog and fountain drink at the turn. Great deal!!
