I am a brand new lady golfer and so far, I have played this course 3 times. My instructor said to play here as a start since it is flat, nice course, etc. Was very excited to get out and play my first 9 holes by myself this past week. Today, Sunday night @ 5pm, I want to practice my putting anticipating that I would play Tues and Thurs early morning first 9 holes. I drove into the parking lot, grabbed my putter and balls, and was about to step onto the green when I was rudely told I couldn't putt since I wasn't playing. I guess he was the course manager, who was practicing his putting/pitching. I told him I was going to practice in anticipation of playing later in the week. He told me the policy was..."if you are not going to play, then you can't practice." To which I replied, "I have to practice my putting the right before/after I am scheduled to play and no other time?" To which he replied that is the policy. I then told him I was a very new player and was trying to get the putting piece down. Let me tell you, he was about the rudest person I have met so far. I pointed out to him he never asked me who I was, had I played there before (he obviously didn't recognize me from Thursday morning). I guess the Murrysville Golf Course doesn't care to cater to new players.... woman at that. I guess I will be heading off to Manor, Cloverleaf, and even Meadowwink where they know how to treat a lady.
As public golf courses go this a well kept fun place to play, fair for the average golfer, not a long course but if your ego dictates play from the Blue tees. Overall you need to play smart and use all the clubs in your bag.
Im giving this course five stars because i golf there and i don't want to upset the golf gods. If you are an avid golfer you know that the golf gods directly impact your game. I like the course. Short, fairly priced, friendly staff and have been kind to our league for the last 7 years.
