Aubreys Dubbs Dred Golf Course
WOW, awesome, true roll and fast greens
This is a great course, but becareful what you wish for, fast greens can double your putts in a heart beat.
Back nine is tough. ball placement is a must. One of the par 5's on the back isn't quite fair, but only because of where they put the pin that day. I'll know better next time

need some attention
Fairways and greens were hard as rocks, some spots were bare or dead in certain areas. We like to try different courses,do not know if I would book again.

The back nine is the most unusual layout in western PA
Note that if the back nine cart paths are wet they are the most treacherous anywhere! Proceed slowly as many are extremely steep & have curves. Preview where to hit the ball - many blind shots & no bail-out areas around greens! Nice greens & tees but fairways are below average. Old carts just barely run.

Spectacular elevated tees
The course was quite wet the day we played so it was difficult to get decent distance . We will definitely play Aubrey Dubbs again on a dry day . Front nine is straight forward and fairly easy however the back nine is very difficult with very narrow fairways and drastic elevation changes . Its best to take a little power off the shots and stay on the straight and narrow . All in all a very fun course and great value

Challenging or Unfair?
I have mixed feelings about this course. The front 9 is fine, wide-open and well kept. The back 9 is entirely different. So many holes that are just in awful spots, with odd greens. The greens all over the course haven't been watered in years, and also were carved into the sides of hills. I realize it's extremely cheap, but not worth the money at all.

tale of two nines
Front nine is nice and mostly wide open. Back nine is carved into a mountain. Every fairway is sloped down, so even a nice shot ends up in the woods.

Unique is friendly
Two VERY different sides. Front was wide open and playability for poor to average players was high. Back, Oh wait you mean we need 18 holes??? Squeezed in, playing down 10 yard wide fairways cut out of the side of a steep hillsides, cart path only on several holes.
Greens were interesting at best. I'm not sure whether to say they were terrible or challenging. No ball mark repair needed because no one every leaves one the way they are, literally. Unless you can put a good amount of spin on the ball you can't actually aim for, hit the green and hold it. If you don't hit 10 yards short and let it run on, no green for you.
This is where I don't know whether to say they were a joke or challenging. You could be on the green and be on barely any grade at all, put and have it come back and go off the green if you don't make the put. Some of the greens were essentially mounded middle out. I had a ball sitting 3 inches from the cup, it stopped there, then all of a sudden with no one near it, no wind, nothing while I was 3 feet away it starts rolling (fortunate for me it almost went in).
Tees were terribly marked and on number 7 there is a huge oak about 50 ft tall right in front of the tee. It's not figurative language here, I'm serious. Group after group crushed this tree. It's stuff like this that makes this a sub-par place. With improved greens and some refurb on the random back 9 it could be a place worth visiting regularly.
