Originally established in 1904, the golf course was comprised of six holes built along side the Allegheny river at Logan's Ferry in Plum township. Frequent floods made the site unplayable most of the time, and it became necessary to relocate to a new site. It was then that 50 acres was purchased adjoining the old Wilkinsburg /Verona street car line, and a 9 hole course was opened. An old house belonging to the McMillan family was used for the purpose of storing equipment and the house still remains across the street from GOCC to the present day. In 1907 a colonial style clubhouse was completed and later land was purchased to extend the club grounds to the Allegheny River to make room for an 18-hole course. The current clubhouse at GOCC was constructed after a fire in December of 1950.
Presently GOCC is home to a beautifully manicured Donald Ross designed 18-hole, par 71 golf course. Layout comes packed with challenging shots, slick sloping greens, large fronts and is a true test for players of all skill sets. Additionally, you will see elevation changes, strategic bunkering and a few of the toughest par 3's around. GOCC maintains some of the best greens in western PA year after year. After a 1982 U.S. Open Qualifier, future masters champion Ben Crenshaw stepped off of the 18th green and said "playing here was like playing in heaven." Members at GOCC have access to our practice facilities that include our 10 acre driving range, short game and bunker area, and two chipping and putting greens.
