Members and their guests

Edgewood Country Club, a Donald Ross design, is one of the oldest and most recognized clubs in the Western Pennsylvania. Ross, one of golf's all-time greatest golf architects, has designed over 500 courses in the United States, including such courses as Pinehurst #2, Oak Hill, Seminole and Scioto Country Clubs.

Ross' philosophy of golf architecture can best be described by a quotation he often used, "Golf should be a pleasure, not a penance." His interpretation of the word pleasure was very broad, implying not only a fair course which presents problems and challenges to all types of golfers, but also which is as natural as possible.

Edgewood, chartered in 1898, is golf at its best, but the weather rules. The course plays its best when it is dry. Fairness of the pin placements and speed of the greens dictates how the course plays; they magnify the golfer's mistakes and course subtleties.
