Donald Ross was one of the first words on the course at Allegheny Country Club, and he was certainly the last (in a professional capacity, at least). The Scot consulted on the design of the current 18-hole course, which was later expanded by Englishmen Herbert Fowler and C.H. Alison a decade later. That pair left the project, however, and Ross stepped back in to finish their work. Finally, with so many members serving during World War II, the club closed its back nine. When the conflict had ended, Ross returned toward the end of his career to bring that section of the course back.

That was the last notable design work to occur to the course played today, but Gil Hanse had a major role in keeping it in its current shape.

Allegheny Country Club has a wealth of history in the women’s amateur game. During 1954, Barbara Romack defeated Mickey Wright in what remains the longest final of USGA championships, approaching cricket length at 29 hours and 15 minutes. The USGA also hosted its Mid-Am and Senior Amateur Championship there during 1990 and 2001 respectively; both were won by the local icon Carol Semple Thompson.

Just northwest of Pittsburgh, the terrain at Allegheny plays up to its mountainous surname.
