Travel Trouble

*From Harris Turer of Milwaukee, Wisc.: Matt, I am going to Pittsburgh next week and would love to play golf. I've spoken to a number of people and no one can suggest anywhere to play. The only course I've played there is Oakmont and that isn't happening again. Can you suggest two courses that we could get on? Price is not an object. Thanks! Harris Turer *

Harris, I haven't played a bunch of public golf in the Pittsburgh area, but a quick search on our GD Places to Play course finder and I came up with some recognizable names. Butler's Golf Course in Elizabeth gets a 4.5 star rating (out of a possible 5 stars). Weekday rate, before 11 a.m. with a cart, is $39 (after 11 a.m. is $34).


[Here's a link to the other courses in the area you can choose from.


Have a good trip and let me know where you play and what you thought of the courses, I'll pass it on.
