Quicksilver Golf Club
Great day of golf
I play at Quicksilver in a league during the week, but we only play 9 holes. I've been wanting to get out and play 18 to see if I could put a full round together.
Had a great round, pace was excellent, we finished in 4 hours.
The only complaint was that the bunkers weren't fluffed or raked at all and were hard because of the wet conditions from the day before.
This usually isn't an issue at this course though.
The pins were all in their easiest positions to keep the pace of play moving and it was much appreciated.
By far my favorite course in Pittsburgh.

Very Good Track!
VERY SOLID TRACK> Very few flat lies. Not for high handicappers. Green undulate a great deal. Playing down and UP MANY HILLS...most greens are elevated with traps in front.
GPS on carts helps but they do NOT TELL YOU if flag is in front middle or back. Sand in good shape and quite consistent.
I would recommend this course. The only real issue is that there is a "white tee" box at 6,500 yards and a forward "gold tee" at 5,600 yards...but nothing in between.
DO NOT try to walk course...way too hilly!

Very Nice Course
This course is in excellent condition. The greens are moderately fast. There are a couple blind holes. I used more club. I enjoyed my round.

Played the course 7-8 years ago. What a pleasant surprise!! Playing in Pittsburgh Quicksilver needs to be on your short list

Rough was a bit long for having a fun day
Made play slow and frustrating when only a few feet off the fairway spending time looking for balls
Greens were fantastic and the fairways
Still we enjoyed it

I liked the course, but I cannot recommend it due to slow play. Our round took 5:11 despite the fact that we teed off fairly early in the morning. Later tee times likely took longer. You could try the course on a weekday but definately not on a weekend.

This is the best public course in the Pittsburgh Area
The course is always in fantastic shape. The greens are fast and severe. The layout is difficult but fair. The staff is friendly and the rates, while steep on the weekends, is well worth it. If I were to suggest one course to someone visiting the Pittsburgh area, I would suggest Quicksilver.

Avoid the rough!
The course is in great shape. The starter was friendly and helpful. I decided not to use the bag drop and he met me in the lot with a cart as I was walking to the facility. The first three holes are pretty straight forward and allow you to get comfortable. As you continue it gets considerably more difficult. The rough is thick and is not what you would find on a typical public course. The difference between hitting it in the fairway and the rough is potentially one shot per hole. We got a good value @ $34. I would not pay the normal rate of 60 to play here. The locker room has a shower facility that is open to all golfers. In summary the course is fun and very playable from the fairways. Hit it in the rough and your score will rise quickly.
