Birdsfoot Golf Club
I really enjoy playing at Birdsfoot. The course has a nice layout with some challenges for accuracy. The most recent day I played, the greens were a bit slow. Faster play in the mornings. Friendly workers...Great website with helpful hints and 360 degree views of each hole. The scenery is beautiful and I love the "faces in the trees."

Always top quality!
Always fun to come to Birdsfoot. People are extremely pleasant and the course was very good.

Course was in decent shape. The greens were a bit beat up. Some of the tees were a little rough as well. Fairways were good. Bunkers were heavy. Did not have an issue with slow play today.

Nice Layout. Decent Conditions. Poor Pace of Play
I play Birdsfoot a lot. Sometimes as a single during non-peak times and sometimes with others during peak times. The pace of play on weekends is insane. I have pledged to not play here again on the weekends as it always takes 5+ hrs. Even if you go later in the day, it is awful.
I love the layout, the greens are decent for the amount of play they get but the bunkers need a lot of work. There are always filled with water if it has rained in prior days.

Waiting and more waiting
Only play here once a year, because every round is over 5 hours. If they could cut avg pace of play to 4 hours, I'd consider playing there more. Great layout with some awesome holes. But if you have to stand on the t box for 20 plus minutes on 2 or 3 consecutive holes, it's just too much.

Nice Course, Mean Starter!
Always one of my favorite layouts. Love the links style course, fairways and greens were in fantastic shape! Pro Shop Staff inside was very friendly, but the starter is not good for business. When we were teeing off, he yelled at our group for hitting when the group was already on the green. He told us "You don't hit until I tell you to hit" and was rather mean when he greeted us. But the rest of the staff was friendly and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our round. My other complaint was pace of play. It would have been fine, and was for the 1st 12 holes, until a modified shotgun was started on a Sunday Morning for the WPIAL Wrestling Officials which caused massive backups over the last 6 holes. We played the 1st 12 holes in 2 1/2 hours and it took us over 2 1/2 hours to play the final 6 holes. They should come up with a better way to get this group on the course.

This course is in the middle of nowhere. The courses bunkers where filled with water from the day before. It seemed like the staff made no effort to pump out the water. Pretty challenging course. Would not recommend the drive for most people.

We had a threesome for a 2:45 tee time. Finished our round in 4 hrs flat while still being slowed at times. We got the hot deal so the green fees were a great deal. The biggest complaint with Birdsfoot is that their greens are sometimes chewed up because of the amount of play they get. The greens where decent this time around. All in all a good day.
