3 Lakes Golf Course
3 Lakes Golf Course originally opened in 1923 under the name Alcoma Golf Course. Along with the name change, it also opened its doors to the public and has since become a local favorite. It's known as one of the best values for your money in the area, offering country club-style golf at public rates. The layout was designed by Emil Loeffler, who designed two other courses in Pittsburgh – Highland Country Club and Shannopin Country Club. The course sprawls across more than 150 acres of gently rolling terrain, providing rolling fairways and undulating greens. The classic layout is tough but fair. You'll be tested with a variety of different lies and the holes have plenty of diversity as well, ranging from some that are on the shorter side to others that are monstrous.

This is something a lot of courses let happen but habitually in western PA; no rangers anywhere, quit after 9 because 2:40 is absurd.
I’d say Covid is the cause of the congestion but it’s been this way for years.
Course is average but for the first time in the 5-6 years I’ve played this course, it wasn’t soggy wet so that was a huge plus. The actual course was in pretty good shape also.
More staff needed
The course and staff were good but they need a starter and a ranger. My assigned playing partner was determined to play as a single so when I showed up on the 1st tee and introduced myself, he said he was slow and took off for the 10th hole. I ended playing as a single and had to play through several groups.
Ok course with terrible staff, will never play there again
The course is Ok (much worse than a few years ago). However, the staff of the course were extremely rude, especially the ranger. He may bother you for no reason whenever you are preparing for shot or putting. They screw up your game, and will never say sorry to you. You will feel you are not welcome to play there. Don't waste your money.
Hilly is an understatement
Nice course we'll groomed, and various degrees of Hill slopes. 5th Hole Par 5, the fairway seems nearly a 45 degree angle.
The pace of play was a snail's pace. Stopped after 9 of my 18 holes, after 2.15 hours for front 9.
After seeing reviews and. 3 stars from golfnow I expected fair to average conditions. But experienced so much better, the fairways were nice and the greens rolled true. Overall great course to play! I guve it 4 stars easily
Staff extremely friendly, out of their way to ensure you have a good day. Heavily booked around our time, and pace was great. I cannot state how fun this course is, used every club in the bag. If you don't like it, not sure what you would you enjoy.
course in good shape, exception of bunkers, hard, rocky. Greens faster than average
Thank you so much for give us a good review and 4 out of 5 star rating! We strive to make 3 Lakes Golf Course the best public course with private amenities in Pittsburgh. We look forward to improving the bunkers for next season!
Great course for the price
Course was in decent shape for how dry it has been the past two weeks. Greens were fast and in decent shape for this time of the year. Staff were very friendly. Great course to play for beginners and advanced players alike!
Thank you for pointing out the great quality for the price. The greens are legendary and I will relay the compliment on the staff! 3 Lakes strives to be the best public course in Pittsburgh. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Good course, good price
Course was in decent shape, greens were a little patchy but thats to be expected this late in the season, but they rolled nice and were fast. Fairways were in great shape. People that worked there were relatively nice however they did not have our golfnow tee time on file.
