Public golf in Pittsburgh area?

May be moving to the Burgh. Interested in opinions on affordable but challenging public golf. Any courses you would recommend joining right out of the gate?

    Thanks for the answers/opinions. In the early stages of planning the move.
    My comment on public vs "joining" is probably because where I live now in Upstate NY, our public courses have members. In reality, all we do is pay our greens fees in advance to become a "member's.
    Thanks again.

    Yes, that’s true here as well. Sometimes there’s a savings or members get some reserved tee times. I have a membership at Birdsfoot so I just pay a $20 cart fee each round (would be happy to walk but my group isn’t), but they also run coupons just about every week. Where is your new workplace? It’s sometimes difficult to balance commute with golf access. I work downtown, and it’s five minutes to golf but an hour to work in rush hour.
