A championship-caliber layout awaits golfers at this upscale daily-fee course near the Pittsburgh International Airport.. The Scene Rolling hills provide a great view of the clubhouse from many spots on the course and a trademark Western Pennsylvania golf feel. Designed in 1971 by Don Nagode and reworked 19 years later by Bob Murphy and Sean Parees, Quicksilver weighs in at a healthy 7,083 yards from the silver tees and a much more tame 6,389 yards from the whites. Seventy-three bunkers and five lakes dot the landscape, which is meticulously gardened and mowed.
Signature Hole The par-3, 199-yard 8th. This downhill par-3 presents a number of challenges. A horseshoe lake surrounds three quarters of this bowled green in front and a narrow bunker covers the back. Select a club with higher loft to account for the elevation change and to have any chance of holding the green. Watch out: The slick, domed putting surface makes rolling one into the water a distinct possibility.
But Wait, There's More The lavish clubhouse includes a well-stocked pro shop, locker room facilities, Murphy's Pub and Restaurant complete with indoor and outdoor seating, a snack bar and several ballrooms.
