Prepare yourself for an unparalleled golfing experience. Clover Hill is a challenging, 9-hole Pittsburgh golf course, maintained and open all year round, weather permitting. Clover Hill is not a long course, but it provides a unique test of golf skills. It uses sand traps, rolling greens, water hazards and other obstacles, emphasizing accuracy rather than distance. In 1984, all of the golf course property was owned by Ryan Homes, which wanted to develop 1200 homes, Council, however, took exception to that plan. At that time, Council was putting in a lot of time and planning into restructuring the zoning. Ryan Homes and Council didn't like any of the solutions offered and they ended up in the Court of Common Pleas. The Judge heard both sides of the story and he told both parties to find a solution and then return with a decision. The whole situation took close to 4 years to solve. By that time, market requirements for homes were changing, and finally Ryan Homes had to reduce their housing plan by around 500 homes, which pleased Council. By the time Ryan Homes and Council agreed to work on the solution, Ryan Homes had dropped the number of units again to a final total of 245. Because Ryan Homes did not need this land any longer the firm agreed to let Franklin Park Borough acquire the six existing golf course holes and purchase the other land for a nominal fee if the Borough agreed to pay taxes on the property for ten years. The Borough's budget for the golf course was about $500,000. That included fees for an architect who redesigned the property to install three new holes to the six holes already on land occupied by the former Keystone Moose Country Club.
