Bob O’Connor Golf Course at Schenley Park will REOPEN on
Friday, May 1, 2020 at 8:00 AM

This is great news for the golf community! However, to keep EVERYONE safe during these unprecedented times, there will be strict guidelines that MUST be followed in order to play the golf course. Failure to comply with these rules and restrictions may result in your removal from the facility.

All tee times MUST be pre-paid using the Bob O’Connor Golf Course app on your phone, or by calling the Golf Shop at 412-622-6959.  Reservations MUST may be made on the BOGC app, or on our facility website at www.theBobGC.com.  There will be absolutely no walk-in payments, and NO CASH will be accepted in the Golf Shop.  You MUST have a pre-paid tee time to begin play on the Golf Course.

The Golf Shop will be open from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM during the week, and from 7:30 AM to 7:00 PM on weekends and holidays.
