Voted Number One for a Reason!

If you haven’t experienced Olde Stonewall yet, it’s time to add it to your “must-play” list without delay. Trust us, it’s worth it!

Nestled just a short 30-minute scenic drive from downtown Pittsburgh, PA, in Ellwood City, Olde Stonewall stands out as one of the premier golf courses in Western PA, catering to both public and private players alike. Consistently hailed as one of the nation’s top public courses by leading golf publications, its reputation precedes it. Whether you’re a local or just passing through, if you crave an unforgettable golfing experience, look no further.

As you arrive, prepare to step back in time to the medieval era, greeted by the awe-inspiring clubhouse that evokes the grandeur of a majestic castle. The grand entrance alone beckons for a photo, setting the stage for a remarkable day ahead. And with each step, you’ll find plenty more opportunities to capture the magic of this extraordinary setting.

Step into the award-winning pro shop, where the dilemma lies not in finding something you like, but in choosing among the abundance of top-quality gear and apparel. Once you’ve checked in, you may find it hard to resist making a purchase or two before teeing off, and you’ll likely find yourself returning for more before the day is done.

We highly recommend arriving with ample time to spare, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the Olde Stonewall experience. Make the most of their exceptional range and practice facilities, with complimentary range balls to fine-tune your game. As you head to the range, be prepared to be amazed by the striking limestone boulders that adorn the landscape, offering a glimpse of the natural beauty that awaits you throughout the course.

A picture may speak a thousand words, and within this cover story, it becomes evident why Olde Stonewall stands as one of the nation’s premier courses. Impeccable conditions are a hallmark here, a testament to the unwavering commitment to both construction and maintenance without compromise.

With five sets of tees spanning from 5241 to 7103 yards from the tips, Olde Stonewall offers a challenge suited to every golfer. Though not an easy course, it maintains a fairness that beckons players to select the tee that aligns with their handicap, ensuring an enjoyable round. Even the Stonewall tees (white tees) at 6200 yards provide a formidable test for mid-handicappers.

Amidst the wealth of stunning holes, pinpointing a signature one becomes a delightful dilemma at Olde Stonewall. With at least a dozen contenders, each offering mesmerizing views
and immaculate conditions, the course stands as a masterpiece in its own right.

For a truly unforgettable experience, we recommend driving to the tips from the sixteenth hole, following the twin challenges of back-to-back par 3s. No photograph can capture the essence of this breathtaking vista; it’s an encounter best savored in person.

After your round, indulge in a post-game ritual at the bar or on the back porch—
a culinary experience that mirrors the excellence of the course itself.
