Golf Trip to Pittsburgh


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Need some advice and help from the Pittsburgh WRXers! Thanks in advance. 

My group of four get a chance to play at Oakmont around early May this year. We will fly in from California, and we are planning for another two more rounds in the area. 

I will really appreciate if someone can give me some advice on some good course options within a driving distance. 

Best regards,

 

Victor

Laurel Valley and Fox Chapel are fun

 

Add in Nevillewood and the Field Club and you have all the good private golf in the city covered.

No course is like Oakmont that you will play in Pittsburgh. Somebody knows somebody to get to play it. Totteridge is a great public course as well as Stonewall. After you realize how hard Oakmont is you might welcome a much easier course. Have fun and post your scores there.

Hey, bud, I might post some on course pictures, but I doubt if I want to show how ugly the score would be.

I walked on that course couple of days back the US Open time. Man, it is The Hardest course I've ever personally seen.. 

Still very excited!!!

Thanks for all the information. Guys. I've tried, but no luck on Laurel Valley for our foursome group. So I ended up book the Olde Stone Wall after read it ranked as #1 public course in the state. Hopefully, the mid May weather is perfect in PA. 

 

Weather in May should be fine aside from the chance of rain. We have been playing at least twice a week since the last week February.

Why is Oakmont so hard? Long carries? Pure length? Bunkers? Rough? Greens? Maybe all of the above!

you cant get on oakmont--Members very snooty

FYI just because full paying members don't want random people on their golf course that does not make them snooty.

I got to play OCC in May of 2018. Best experience of my life. 

 

I played in a Monday qualifier at Green Oaks CC (in Verona right down the road) club years back. Not sure if it's private or not, but it was a quirky little "old days" muni style course that was in absolute pristine condition.  Not a lot of character to it, but the condition of the course made it stand out.
