Great little course of you know what it is. No carts, no sand traps, no water and really great views. I will be back. Very friendly and help staff as well.

I've only been playing golf now for about 12 years now and this was the first course I played, so I may be a bit biased. However, I do believe that this course is by far one of the better kept "executive courses" in the PGH area. The holes are manageable and they are short enough that they make a 9 hole round seem like a nice walk through a park. Play is generally at a decent pace in the mornings and throughout the day, although it can get crowded after work hours due to First Tee lessons and groups. I generally find that, even though the fairways and rough are basically the same grass just cut to different heights, the greens are always well maintained for a course that is located in the heart of the City of Pittsburgh. I happen to think that this course is perfect for trying out new clubs, finding you r swing, or just getting in a good practice round coupled with a nice walk. I really can't complain too much about the course and with a price tag of only $15 for either 9 or 18, that's a deal that is a no brainer. Yes, there are a few hills that test the average walker, but again I find it a challenge. Overall, if you have the time and are looking for a good value, then give "The Bob" a try. You might find a new course on your favorites list.

This was my first time visiting PIT and I was looking for a course in the city. I played this course with a group of 3 friends. It was a unique course to say the least. The course plays pretty short. The tee boxes are mats which was unique. What made this course interesting was that certain holes played through a semi busy street which is not for the faint of heart. It was a good source of cardio because of the steep inclines. We started on the 3rd tee because holes 1 and 2 were reserved for lessons for kids that morning. I did not realize that this was a walking only course, but pull carts were provided. It was an affordable course. It was nicely kept. I would recommend it just for the courses that played through the strets.

Not terrible for the price. Nine holes, no carts available so you have to walk and the terrain is very steep on some holes. Some holes cross over a busy intersection. The worst part about this course is the tee boxes are turf. The course itself is in fairly good shape and it has a great view of Pittsburgh.

I've played this course several times solo and with others. They have no carts so you must walk the course. It's pretty easy to play. This is a great course for beginners or those who just want a place to practice. A few of the holes have really great/scenic views of Oakland/Pittsburgh.
