Montour Heights Country Club

From its rolling hills to its green complexes, it is truly a one-of-a-kind golf experience every time, mixing traditional southwestern Pennsylvania golf terrain with the signature style of Pete Dye.

Quicksilver Golf Club

Quicksilver Golf Club (using an alternative name for mercury) was founded in 1988, and is a former host of the PGA Senior Tour.  With generous fairways, receptive greens and the best course conditions in Western Pennsylvania, QGC is impeccably maintained and is only 30 minutes from Downtown Pittsburgh and 7 minutes from Pittsburgh International Airport.  Tucked among Western Pennsylvania’s rolling hills, you’ll find the fairways lush and the greens fast and true.

Shadow Lakes Country Club

The  Club at Shadow Lakes sprawls across lush, rolling hills, sprinkled with pristine woodlands.  Formerly a private golf club, Shadow Lakes is now public and open year-round.  The golf course is challenging with not only the trees and hills coming into play, but water hazards and strategically placed sand traps as well.  It is a layout that rewards accuracy off the tees over distance.  Golfers will have to strategize and shape their shots in a variety of ways on this tough golf course.
