1/12 Oakmont, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Image title

    The course has a few very impressive features (church pew bunkers, elevation changes, and lightning fast greens) to make it a memorable round, but nothing to the point that someone would acuse Oakmont of being "tricked up." The green run 14-15 on the stimpmeter during member play and are actually slowed down when the U.S. Open comes to town. The course features excellent variety in hole lengths and has enough elevation changes to maintain your interest throughout the round. 


Baltusrol and Winged Foot West both are excellent tournament courses that test one's skill, but Oakmont adds in more interesting bunkering, elevations, and variety. Oakmont golf has two 18 hole courses. The west is a challenging 6059 yards. The East course is an executive course of 4293 yards, no par 5's but very challenging. The courses are in great condition, and a real value in Sonoma County. I highly recommend.
