Seth Raynor outdid himself at Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh, though his course here has gone somewhat unheralded since its opening in 1923. The pioneering designer's signature moves are evident throughout, such as contoured fairways, greens that are big, raised, sculpted and quick, and deep bunkering on the 6th, 8th, 12th and 17th holes, which was restored by Brian Silva in 2001. A number of other architects have made adjustments over the years, but Raynor's legacy has been preserved; for instance, trees have been thinned to recreate more of the Scottish feel that he envisioned. The setting features changes in elevation, and the challenge is augmented with over four dozen bunkers and water hazards. Holes vary in size and orientation to keep things interesting. The course is quite walkable and very peaceful. Over the years the Curtis Cup and US Women's Amateur Championship have been played here.
