It’s not too early to schedule your group golf outing to Mercer County. The Mercer County Golf Trail travels from the Grove City Area of Mercer County to the Shenango Valley and bordering Ohio area. The trail is an outstanding choice for overnight golf trips from Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

There is no shortage of golf courses or challenging holes in Mercer County. Here you will find a variety of 4 and 4 ½ star courses within a half hour or less drive of each other. The area has become a mecca for golf groups looking for great courses and great value. The low green fees offer some of the most competitive and affordable pricing you will find anywhere in the United States.

The rolling terrains, perfectly manicured greens, and tree-lined fairways are a beauty to behold and a pleasure to play. Oak Tree was named in the top two public golf facilities in western Pennsylvania by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Pine Lakes Golf Club and Resort is a 4 ½ star and PGA approved practice facility offering great stay and play packages. Tam O’Shanter Golf Course, Spring Valley Golf and Lodge, Yankee Run Golf Course, and others too numerous to name make our area a golfer’s paradise.

Excellent golf packages are offered through area accommodations. Groups, couples and individuals can enjoy a relaxing golf experience with all the planning completed for them, including all the amenities that the group desires.
