Rated 3 out of 5 by Jmsun2 Six hour rounds the norm
If you got six hours to kill on a weekend for a round of golf, this is the course. Rangers do nothing to keep the pace of play moving. They try to run the place like a country club, but far from it. This course has a great layout, but has been on a downward spiral with up keep. The greens and bunkers are just terrible. It's a shame because when this course first opened it was amazing, it's a shame to see a track like this go downhill. Lots of hacks out there. If the pace of play wasn't so bad, maybe the other short comings would be tolerable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by u972141698 Course is in great shape and challenging
Every time I've played the course it has been well maintained. Greens are in great shape. The course also offers some challenge to an average golfer like myself.

Birdsfoot is a bit far for me to travel but very much well worth the trip. Course is always in the best shape. I played this course 4 times and would definitely play here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary2939225 FUN AND challenging
Was traveling from Florida to Canada and wanted to play golf along the way. When I GOOGLED "Stay & Play" golf in the Pittsburg area we came across a winning combination. Unfortunately, they receive quite a bit of rain the night before we were suppose to play so it was Cart Path Only. Regardless, didn't want to miss the opportunity to play Birdsfoot so we braved it, we weren't the only ones either. What a fun & challenging links course. Would play it again in a heartbeat if we didn't live so far away. The other piece of the combo is Paganelli's Butterfly House. A wonderful B&B just minutes away from the course. Make the trip, spend the night, PLAY some great golf! You won't be disappointed!!

Outstanding layout and course conditions were as good as the private clubs I belong to. A must play in Pittsburgh.

Birdsfoot features a nice layout with some really interesting views. Lots of the holes are very undulated, be it uphill, downhill, or sidehill.
It wouldn't be so bad playing off these uneven lies if the course wasn't so firm all the time and if it were better kept. The pin placements also make it challenging off these lies for the average golfer because they are always tucked. And if you simply play for the middle of the green, good luck navigating your 40-footer through craters of ball marks.
I've played here countless times growing up in the area and playing games with my uncle, cousin, and friends. As I've gotten more into golf, I realize there are plenty more better kept places to play than this track. Also, be prepared for a long round because Birdsfoot is by far the most overplayed course I know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tmiller099 Would Play over and over again
Birdsfoot is the best public course in the Pittsburgh area for the money. It took a good bit of rain in the morning and course was well drained besides some traps in the afternoon. Fairways were nicely cut and greens were rolling true. You always have people that don't fix ball marks, but that is common at any course. Overall I will definitely be coming back and play some more.
