ahhhhh... this course is okay... longs are okay and they say they have 3 different tees and i was looking for the longest but i only saw the 2 cement pads. navigational nightmare if you never played. longs are easy and shorts are not even worth playing... threw the putter on i wanna say 15 of the 18 holes from the shorts... i cant believe i didnt get an ace, did hit basket on 15!

I love Schenely. It was one of the first courses I ever played. It's not the most challenging on earth, nor the best eye candy. It does offer a small amount of challenge, but that challenge lies within the trees and not actual difficulty. There are a couple throw and hopes, and some super easy holes. A few years ago I would had given it a B, but after travelling the country and living elsewhere seeing what's available I gotta keep it real. The course is SUPER well maintained for being in the City of Pittsburgh, and the local club dedicates alot of time. It's definitely worth playing.

Schenley is an old school DG course, installed in 1988. Very tight in places and holes are often close to each other, making league nights an exciting time to watch other players shots to be sure you don't get hit! Course recently upgraded with new baskets and tee signs. Concrete tee pads on Red and White tees.

Pretty good course. Very well maintained. Most of the holes are a little shorter, but trees make it challenging.

Decent little course that is definitely beginner-friendly. Concrete tees for some short red tees, which are generally under 200 feet, and white tees, that are generally under 250 feet. There is designations for blue tees with some kick boards, but they are not concrete. The course had great signage with all tees and the 3 multiple pin positions mapped out at each the red and white tees. The course flow was also easy to navigate, as you could almost always see the basket you are throwing to a ...

Don't be fooled by the open field for the first few holes. the rest of the course is deep in the woods. Lots of trees, well maintained and not too hard to navigate. Overall above average course.

Ahhh the trees. For a beginner like myself, my discs quickly found the love for trees. Having only been playing the sport for a couple of weeks when we played here, it was fun. Definitely want to return for another round and also to watch the championships in 2014.

What makes this course is its charm. A beautiful stroll through a city park, enjoying areas unexplored by most visitors. You can take in nice views of downtown and Oakland. It is well maintained. The course lacks creativity and adventure that may be found in more mountainous areas. Seems to be a good course for beginners (like myself).

If your looking for a quick game this is the place to go. As long as there is no big groups in front of you. Some are nice enough to let you go through and others don't care. Hole 2 is a nice wide open par 4 with a nice small downhill shot. Perfect hole for testing out new high speed drivers. Also this site lists hole 2 as a par 3 when again, it is a par 4. So finishing at a +3 for an amateur isn't to bad considering I really only get out once every 2 weeks to play a round or 2.
