Apollo Elks Country Club
Apollo Elks Country Club, situated just northeast of Pittsburgh, is considered one of the area's must-play golf courses. It has appeal for a wide range of skill levels with a layout that is challenging enough for seasoned golfers but also not too difficult for beginners to approach. There is an interesting mix of holes ranging from reachable par 5s to short, tough par 3s and each hole has a distinct character. The greens are fast and the gently rolling terrain provides some subtle breaks that can be tricky. Bunkering is sparsely but strategically placed along the fairways and greensides. There are also a few water hazards that come into play at Apollo Elks Country Club. The round has plenty to hold your attention but don't forget to stop and admire the beautiful western Pennsylvania scenery.

Good Day for Golf
First time out for the year. Very temperate, overcast day, great for playing. The course is nice and quiet, no traffic noise at all. There weren't a lot of golfers out. We teed off at 10:30 and had zero wait on any hole. Very pleasant experience.
Unbelievable condition for time of year
Tee box to fairways to green were beautiful. A little wet but with the Spring we are having it is expected.
April 4th and course was in great condition. Green were cut and rolled and fairways we're beautiful. Traps need some work but still playable in the most part.
Wet Windy Day of Golf
The course was lush. The greens were in good shape. The weather took down a sizeable amount of leaves on the back nine that the grounds crew was trying to address, which made for delays searching for balls just off the fairway. Front nine was cleared and enjoyable to play.
SURPRISE. SURPRISE. SURPRISE
BThe course is really great and very interesting. The greens are great and tricky.
Fairways are great.
Great surprise when playing. I enjoyed myself and played good.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Very good golf course with only one problem
I liked everything about the course it was very well maintained, fairways,greens, bunkers and the T boxes. My only complaint I have about the course is the cart paths are very rough with a lot of bumps and tree roots which is hard on your body even when you're going relatively slow on the path. If it wasn't for that I would give the golf course a five-star rating. Overall excellent course with a very fair price.
I’ve golfed here before. For the money it’s ok. Had a bad experience where group behind us hit my partner with a ball. Needless to say he was upset and yelled which prompted one of them to ride up to me and instead of apologizing which would have been the appropriate response proceeded to threaten me. Told me he worked there and could throw us off the course. Needless to say that pretty much so ruined the rest of the round.
I am usually playing as a single during the week! I book through golf now to get good deals! Today I got paired up with the nicest twosome! Bob and Mark! Everyone I run into on the course is always so nice and the employees are too!!! Also, the pace of play is really good. The course is in great shape! Beautiful greens and everyone seems to fix their ball marks which is a plus!! I will definitely be coming back!
Better the 2nd time
Even though I played here earlier this summer, I could only recall one hole (the first) as I played again for the 2nd time. Like other reviewers, I found the cart paths to be treacherous, so I got out and walked at every opportunity. The fairways and greens were in pretty decent shape, considering the local weather these past few weeks. I did find some of the holes more memorable this time around. Saw a few deer, a fox, a blacksnake during the round. A pleasant place to play, and not too challenging for the friend I brought along. More open on the front 9, a bit tighter on the back 9.
great greens nice fairways, cart path not so good, be sure cart is included with payment cause for a long time not included.
Nice Course, need 4x4 Golf Carts!
Course is in nice shape; fairways green…plenty of rain this summer. Greens were in good shape too, couple rough spots. Cart paths and driveway in and parking lot pretty rough…gooo sloww!
first 3 holes had wet spot thru the fairway
after that course was fine.
Pretty nice course
Well manicured around the greens. Grass was in nice condition. Recent hard rains had some areas soft and paths washed out, that’s understandable at this time. Carts need to be replaced, no windshields or rain protection on back.
