Welcome to The Bob

In 1897, a 9-hole course was laid out in Schenley Park, and the first golfers began roaming the scenic, rolling hills nestled between the Oakland and Squirrel Hill neighborhoods. As the popularity of golf grew in Pittsburgh, an 18-hole course was constructed in 1903. The walking only 4,620-yard par 67 golf course remains virtually unchanged since it debuted, and is open daily throughout the year, weather permitting, with seasonal hours.

The Bob O’Connor Golf Course at Schenley Park was named in honor of the former mayor who helped spearhead the creation of The First Tee of Pittsburgh. As the home of The First Tee of Pittsburgh since 2001, all facility revenue benefits the chapter’s mission of creating “Good Golfers, Better People.”

Pittsburgh area residents have enjoyed a fun, challenging golf experience at “The Bob” for over a century, and we invite you to play the only course within the city limits.
