What is the pace of play for each course?
Pace of play is between 4 to 4½ hours. We also will add an additional 30 minutes to the round if we are cart path only.
Are caddies available for our round of golf?
Absolutely. Expertly trained forecaddies and walking caddies are available to enhance your golf experience during your time with us. Caddies are mandatory on both courses except for twilight tee times. Not only will you enjoy your experience that much more, but you will shoot a better score. Caddies give yardages, read the greens, clean clubs, track the golf ball's flight, rake sand traps, fix ball marks, fill divots and direct you through the course. For more information, please contact the Golf Pro Shop at 724.329.6111.

Track the distance to each pin, order food, alert the beverage cart and message the pro shop with our technologically advanced Visage GPS system. Additionally, Mystic Rock has its own smartphone app for download (Search Best Approach on your smartphone for a list of golf course apps).
