Pittsburgh National Golf Club
Formerly known as Deer Run, Pittsburgh National Golf Club has undergone major renovations since management has changed hands over the years, including complete reconditioning of the greens and the addition of 60 new renovated bunkers. The championship golf course that exists today is more challenging than the original though it has retained the same playability. With no blind shots to be found and wide fairways that are player-friendly, the course is inviting to beginners and also offers a casual but interesting round for more advanced players. During the renovation, the club also added a practice facility that includes a grass driving range with heated hitting stalls for year-round use, it is one of the only public grass ranges in the Greater Pittsburgh area. There is also a putting green and chipping area with sand bunkers.

The only thing keeping this course from being a top course in the area is the tee boxes. Many had little grass and i often felt like i was standing in a crater when teeing off
As a former member of Deer Run/Pittsburgh National, I was looking forward to playing my old home course. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. Not only have they ruined one of the best layouts in W.PA by attempting to renovate holes 10, 11 and 14. (It has been 2+ years and they are still moving dirt.) The overall conditions are a joke. Tees, bunkers, fairways, greens, cart paths, restrooms are all substandard. I know it was March, but when comparing it to the conditions other courses that have opened, Pittsburgh National is at the bottom. Don’t waste your time or money.
Course needs repair
Fairways were burnt out. Not much grass in them and did not reward a good drive. We actually lost a few balls which were hit down the middle that may have drifted to the ruff side. Greens were fair and well taken care of.
Tee boxes left much to be desired. For the price and the reputation of this course, we did not get our monies worth
The fairways were horrible shape there was very little green grass. But the overall layout is nice, challenging, and the greens were in great shape.
Rain needed to bring the course back to life
Greens were fine. Fairways and general conditions were not good.
Worst conditioned course I've ever played
There are no words to describe how terribly awful the course conditions were at Pittsburgh National
on Saturday August 1st. From dirt tee boxes to burnt fairways, the course looks like its mismanaged
in the worst possible way. Our group called it the Baghdad Country Club because it looked like a war
zone rather than a bonifide public golf course. Google maps satellite view couldn't find green on the tee boxes and fairways of this course and to charge more than $25 to play this course is a crime. Strongly suggest taking your public course golfing dollar anywhere else but here.
The fairways were hardened, burn out , clay with some wispy dead grass on them. The rough was again sun baked clay with wispy weeds and clover. The tees looked like they had been ploughed and not smoothed out. You could stand in a hole to hit your tee shot, or you could tee your ball in a hole. Any errant shot ran off the burnt out fairway and into the woods or the weed infested rough. It appears the tees and fairways have not been watered in several weeks. I will say the greens and aprons were well maintained and challenging. The greens held shots and putted true. Unfortunately, getting to the greens was next to impossible. For $33.00 the course was way overpriced considering the condition of the course. If the course can't be kept up due to the recent hot weather, they should just close it down.
Front 9 vs Back 9
Front 9 is very nice but back 9 has holes under construction (pretty raw) and has several very steep hills. Perhaps they are remodeling the back 9 course...? I would recommend if you wanted to play front 9 only.
Nice course, good challenge
Nice layout. Well taken care of given the weather which was very wet.
Nice layout, good challenge
The course has a god layout and is well maintained. The staff is very friendly.
Great layout getting even better with the improvements to holes 10 and 11.
Great layout. They continue to make the course better with the ongoing improvements to holes 10 and 11. Try it you’ll love it!
Winter Golf in Pittsburgh
Considering the time of year, the course was in excellent condition and a great value.
Played this course throughout the years and it was decent. I usually do not like to post negative reviews but the course is in terrible shape. The tee boxes and fairways are a burnt brown mess. I got a hot deal for $35 and feel like I overpaid.
