This was my first time playing at Speidel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was in really great shape considering the incredible amount of rain the night before. The course was fairly empty, so pace of play wasn't an issue. Well worth the hour and 15 minute drive from Pittsburgh. I will be back.

I have been wanting to play this course for years. Well worth the wait. Excellent fairways, greens, and tee boxes. Very well maintained. Sprinkler and 200, 150, and 100 yard markers. Staff very nice. Good food and beer options. I will come back to shoot better since I now know a little about the course. Very minor complaints. For the regular rates they charge a GPS system should be on the cart. If no GPS then the score card of tee markers should have some sort of distance to bunkers, doglegs, ponds, etc. I lost several shots because I did not have the correct game plan on each hole. The other issue is many blind shots to the greens. This is the standard in Western PA/WVU but seeing the pin makes a big difference . Other than that great course and I have played over 100

This course is in phenomenal shape. The layout is amazing and there are so many holes that stand out. Pace of play was just a little longer than I am used to but didn't hinder my experience. The 10 dollar golfnow deal honestly feels like robbery. This course is amazing and will play over and over again.

The course was in good shape and the staff was very nice.

The course got rid of the cart GPS systems they used to have last year and we were not aware of that prior to going. Luckily one in the group did bring their GPS.

A quality golf course. Unfortunately, extremely slow play and no course management. We quit after 12 holes of molasses pace and rode in on the cart path - only to see holes 13-18 unoccupied. Two foursomes completely clogged the course.

The course ranger was remarkably dense about the pace and was beyond rude if not completely confrontational when we pointed out the slow play.

Will not return.

We had a ranger when we were there this past week. We was ridding around pushing people and we got the round done in about 4 hours and 15 minutes. I think they may have fixed this issue or at least maybe there were better people working when I went than during your experience

This might be the best shape the course has been in all year. Very few golfers playing on a beautiful day so I had plenty of time to hit an extra shot or putt. Greens were rolling very true. An excellent day of golf

Not up to their standards is my guess. Heat has impacted current conditions at Oglebay. Even at sub par conditions, still one of my favorite tracks! Have played here several times this year.

Very nice course off the beaten path. Interesting design with lots of elevation changes. We were too timid to try and walk, and I was glad we took a cart. Greens have a lot of subtle and not so subtle slopes, but they rolled well. Some rough spots in several fairways that were marked ground under repair, and a few tees that needed some work. I believe both nines had 3 par fives and 3 par threes, so a bit different from that standpoint. Good mix of short and long holes. We had a great time and felt it was an exceptional value
