Latrobe Country Club is where the legendary Arnold Palmer grew up playing. His father was the pro there and eventually Arnold was able to buy the Club and make it his own. The layout is relatively short, but the length is definitely deceptive when it comes to evaluating the difficulty of the traversal. Heavily wooded like most of the hilly land near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the fairways are narrow and the elevations constantly changing. Some might call Latrobe a thinking players course. Often the best shot off the tees is not with the 'Big Dog', but a lofted wood or long iron. In fact more often than not the drive is the key to scoring well at Latrobe. Almost every hole offers options from the tee that determine how the hole will play. Position and finesse are required in order to hit the sometimes small greens from the angled and sloping fairways. In addition there are lots of areas that are OB, but sometimes that's even preferable to becoming deeply entangled in the dense trees.
