Birdsfoot Golf Club
First time playing here
Greens putted true but were difficult due to undulations. Bunkers were very muddy from recent rain. Overall a fun course to play and in pretty good condition.

Played Birdsfoot several years ago in the rain and always wanted to get back to play again. Great weather this time. Starter said they had a big event the weekend before so course wasn't in perfect condition, but still considerably better than most local places.
Played for the Birdsfoot special at $25! 11:30 AM Start

2nd time playing
My son took me to Birdsfoot for my birthday and I had a great time. The up and down layout makes you do a lot of guessing about which clubs to use. I am used to Florida and the flatness of the courses so this is a real challenge. I loved it. We hit our tee shots on 16 with a big wind behind then the rains came and kind of ruined the last 3 holes.

I've been here before and enjoyed the great layout, but have had issues with pace of play. This time I was playing under threat of thunderstorms (the radar showed the storms missing to the northwest but people still stayed home) so the course was not crowded on a Monday late afternoon.
I teed off at 3:48 and finished playing at around 6:50pm. There was a threesome in front of me but they allowed me to play through on No. 3, so I made excellent time. The course was wet from rain earlier in the day but the bunkers looked to be in pretty good shape. The greens were a bit slow due to the rain, and they were pretty marked up from golfers who didn't fix their pitch marks. Some of the tee boxes were also pretty chewed up, but not so much that they interfered with my tee shots.
As on my previous visits, the staff here were very friendly and made me glad to be visiting again. They currently have a special for weekday membership for less than $200/yr, which is CRAZY. If I lived closer to the course and could play weekdays more often I would take them up on it...if you play 5 rounds the membership pays for itself.

Beware the Rolling Greens
A packed Saturday greeted us at this track about an hour northeast of Pittsburgh, but despite all of the bodies on the course the friendly staff managed to keep things moving.
The course was dry and greens were rolling extremely fast, too fast for their spiked up condition. Everyone in our foresome lost strokes to an online putt that jumped away from the hole because of an overly spiked up line.
The course is a classic uphill and downhill Western PA layout that will test your ability to judge how much extra club you need to reach an elevated green. #9 is a medium-long par 3 that is 100% carry over a ravine to a long, but slender green. #13 is one of the toughest par 5s in the area since it plays dead uphill. Bomb a drive AND a 3 wood and your work is not yet done.
#18 requires a 250 yard carry over a bunker complex that splits the fairway in half before it dives over one last hillside roller coaster style to a green near the property's original farmhouse that now stands as a clubhouse.
There might not be a more friendly staff on any course in the area and the bar is worth checking out.

Beautiful day for golf with the exception of the greens which were littered with ball marks an bare spots on every green. Fairways and bunkers in nice shape. Explanation I got in pro shop was "it's a public course"
