Harbor Pines Golf Club
The Harbor Pines Golf Club is a public facility that boasts an 18-hole, four-star golf course with subtle, breaking greens that provide a challenge for all golfers. The holes are very private and the fairways are wide and open.
The environment friendly course is a local favorite and is considered among women to be one of the best courses for women to play on. The beautiful natural landscape with seventeen acres of water and 520 acres of forestry has even been certified as an National Audubon Sanctuary. The relatively flat course does offer challenges for experienced golfers but it will not be too difficult for intermediate or beginning golfers. Both the 16th and 17th holes are difficult par-4's and the course has various hazards scattered throughout.

Lots of rain the two days before we played and some in the morning. So it was cart path only, but because of the weather not many people playing and that made pace of play great. Finished the round in three hours wish every round played like that. This course is always fun to play and even being wet it was still a fun course.
Solid track in the area but not the best conditions compared to surrounding courses.
No indication that the greens were aerated, so a bit dissappointed with that - overall course was in good shape for late November, but those darn greens !!!
Great late fall golf
Enjoyed some late fall golf with temperatures in the mid 60s. The greens still haven’t fully healed from aeration and a few bunkers hadn’t been cleared of leaves, but I wouldn’t avoid the course because of it. It’s just what you’re going to deal with this time of year. We had to wait to hit a lot of shots with tee times only being spaced out every 8 minutes. To keep things moving, I’d recommend 8 mins between tee times for the first hour, 9 minutes for the following hour and 10 minutes after that. I know day light is in short supply this time of year, but only so many golfers can get through the course over a given amount of time and you can’t force it. I’ve experienced delays to tee off on the first hole here a few times, so I just recommend being a little more realistic with tee time spacings.
Always enjoy the course, but wish I had known about the recent aeration.
Beautiful day at Harbor Pines
Our first time playing this course and not disappointed. We had to play the back nine twice since they were aerating the front. But we didn’t know that till we were there. Still loved it the second time around.
Aerating? Close the course or reduce play
Today they aerated the front 9. It was fine to plan to play the back 9 twice. However, the number of tee times were not reduced. What happened? Almost 3 hours to play the first 9 holes. A six hour round is ridiculously! .
Got a golf now hot deal to play Harbor Pines for $52 which is a good deal. One issue is at the greens were punched (Aerated) so it was very hard to putt. Harbor Pines usually has very very awesome greens unfortunately this time maintenance had occurred it’s a necessary evil but I guess it would’ve been nice to know before going. Might have tried to play somewhere else instead
Members Have No Etiquette
I was a single. The first problem was the greens were aerated recently, but there was no advisory on the webpage. Then I caught up to a foursome around the third hole. They wouldn’t let me play through. It wouldn’t have been so bad, but they were reading putts like they were playing at the Masters. Again, the greens were aerated...Then l skipped a half a hole to pass them. That’s when l saw another single. I’m hey, maybe we’ll play together. Nope. I’m forced to wait on him for three holes. And to make matters worse he’s reading greens like he’s at the Masters. Remember, the greens are aerated... He FINALLY asked, begrudgingly, if l wanted to pass. Not join him, pass. So much for a social and courteous sport at this course. It had me so frustrated l couldn’t concentrate and enjoy my round anymore. I stopped keeping score and just turned it into a practice round. I’d hadn’t played this course in about 10 years, because it just didn’t impress me. The conditions are good, minus the aeration, but the holes are blah... blah... blah... You know how there’s always one or two holes that make you say- this is an awesome hole - nope, not one. l could not see myself coming back here again. The members should be ashamed of themselves. Oh, and l almost forgot - you can’t ride your cart to the driving range. You have to either carry your bad over or just a few clubs. And then even though the grass looked awesome, you had to hit off the mats. AYFKM!
