Fox Chapel Golf Club

Designer: Pete Kohelis

Course Description:

Welcome to Fox Chapel Golf Club. Located in a suburb of Pittsburgh, this course was designed by Seth Raynor and Charles Banks, opening for play in 1923. The course has many distinctive features, most notably the steep bunker walls and shapes associated with a Raynor design. Given GNCD's restrictions, some of these walls could not be made as severe as the real version, but are as close as possible. The reverse redan 6th, plateau 8th and biarrtiz 17th are highlights along the way through this parkland setting. The course has a great variety of holes from short to long and will require strategy from tee to green. This course has been ranked in the Top 100 in America, as voted by Golf Magazine. Tournaments hosted include: the 2002 Curtis Cup, 1985 Women’s US Amateur and 1968 US Senior Amateur. In 2012, Fox Chapel GC was selected to host the SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. The overwhelming approval of the players warranted The Championship's return in 2013 and 2014. Enjoy!
