Pittsburgh Field Club

Designer: Pete Kohelis

Course Description:

Pittsburgh Field Club is open and ready for play. At 6715 yards, it doesn't pose the stern test of Oakmont, but will test all shots in bag. Greens are typically quite fast here, but slope is moderate. Known for its 120 ft elevation drop from the 1st tee, PFC is set in moderately sloped landscape. The signature elevator next to #17 takes players back up to the 18th. Being able to elevate objects allowed me to re-create the elevator, which is icing on the cake. Enjoy! Chartered in 1882, Pittsburgh Field Club is one of the oldest sporting clubs in the United States. Golf was added in 1905. Due to urban sprawl, the club relocated to the Fox Chapel area, about 8 miles from downtown Pittsburgh in 1915. Many designers have had their hand in the layout at PFC. Alexander Findlay, Willie Park Jr, Donald Ross, A.W Tillinghast, among others have all contributed to the Field Club you see today. The Field Club hosted the 1937 PGA Championship and co-hosted the 2003 US Amateur, along with
