For a public golf course, North Park has plenty to offer in terms of challenge and value. The main downside of this course is that the staff are difficult to deal with and it gets extremely crowded.

My #1 tip to get on the course quickly is to show up when they open on a weekday. The strangest thing about this course is that they don’t take tee times. Yet, large groups and informal leagues seem to just show up and skip the line. The staff are disorganized. Avoid the course on weekday evenings and on the weekend, since there are leagues on weekday evenings and on the weekend it just gets way too crowded.

The course itself is fairly interesting and challenging, especially for a public course. The signature hole is #1. It’s an uphill Par 5 (511 yards) with traps on both sides. There is plenty of variety in this course as well, with 3 holes over 500 yards and 4 Par 3 holes.

On the course you’ll find medium to narrow fairways with dense treelines on both sides and rolling hills throughout. The course is especially scenic first thing in the morning. The back 9 are flatter than the front 9. Overall, this course is moderately difficult.

There’s a cafe, driving range and pro shop. Amenities are fairly basic. Pace of play can be extremely slow on this course. Not just because of the number of people, but also because of how they run large groups through the course and let everyone in these large groups tee off at the same time. Rangers are also difficult to come by, and when they do appear, they have been known to yell at patrons (including junior golfers.)

The terrain also needs work on this golf course. The grass is generally on the long side, and other golfers do a poor job of repairing divots. This course is very difficult to play after a recent rainstorm, since the water tends to pond. I’d recommend playing this course on a sunny day. Allegheny County residents get a 10% discount. Green fees are $20 on the weekend for residents and a cart rental is $19.50.

Would I recommend this course? If you can get in at the right time without waiting too long, then yes, Don’t expect much from the staff. Enjoy the welcome challenge that this course has to offer and ignore the rest.

Course is good challenge for most average golfers. Staff is as noted: rude, cronyist,argumentative, vindictive, phony (pretend nice). I, personally, have seen them berate a father on Father's Day in front of his small son. If you were trying to decrease business, this is the management staff for you! It almost seems purposeful. (shooting to privatize a course owned by the people?? They tried to do that once before, but were deterred by public backlash. It wouldn't surprise me if this were just a sureptitious end-around to the same effort. You know! "we're loosing money, citizens; we have to do something!!" It's defies belief that they haven't asked themselves why they are not crowded to the gills anymore (especially on friday, saturday, & sunday mornings. North Park used to be a jewel in the crown of Allegheny County Parks and Recreation. The course is a great layout and (presently) reasonably priced..They promoted the previous manager around 8 years ago,and it's been downhill ever since. The course is what brings the golfers. The staff is what keeps them away.

I love walking this course, it has a great variety ...however, the staff is so cranky and crony-ish that I only play there if I have to.

north park is great.. long enough yet easy to walk. yes it may be under maintained and at times the staff can be trying (sending some people off the back and not allowing others) but its a county course.. your paying for what you get.. mid to late afternoon is the best time to miss the crowds. dont go here if you think youre a pro, you'll be disappointed..

My first round of golf ever was here at north park and for you parents out there who have kids just starting to play golf, don't take them here. The first hole is an uphill 511 yard par 5 with fairway traps on both sides. The second hole is a driver par with an alternate green that you will at best 5 putt. The course is pretty nice, and it is one of the longer public courses around here.

This is a overal easy course. I play almost every week and i enjoy playing it. The grass in the fairways are way to long for a golf course and there are spots were there isnt any grass at all. Almost every green is straight, but people that play the course dont fix there divets. When it rains and the course is wet it is one of the hardest courses that you can play. Wen it rains puddles of water form on the grees and the areas around the cups is a big puddle of water. This is a overal easy course and is a great course for beginers

Has the potential to be very good. green conditions and fairways leave a little to wanted but again not a bad course.

This course is nice, but you can forget about playing in the morning or after 4:00 during the week. It is an old man's country club in the morning with informal leagues and in the evening they cater to a few church leagues and corporations that are not even in the county where the golf course is located. Staff is rude and accomodates friends and I have seen one group of kids (8) with the so called pro hacking on the course during peak times. he didn't work there and was earning his living on a public government course because he was friends with the staff. Very frustrating and the course could be much better. There are a lot of better courses in the area that are more golfer friendly.

The staff is trying at times. They will send people off on the back no matter where you are on hole nine. Also they want the riding carts turned in as soon as dusk comes so the staff can leave. Extremely slow play without any rangers makes this course very mentally draining. If it had a decent staff to run this course, it could be one of the best around with its layout.

Great time

This is a great course that is perfect for beginners. The staff is exceptionally friendly and is the course is well maintained for its difficulty and extremely cheap price.

Really nice scenery!

This golf course features hills in the distance and on a nice morning, this golf course is truly breathtaking!

Very Crowded at times

THe value is great, but that usually draws the crowds. The pace of play is somewhat slow. The first hole is usually the toughest, an uphill par 5. If you play in Pittsburgh, you get your hills, and this one doesn't disappoint. BUt they do manage to have a couple of flat ones, esp. on the back nine.
