About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 6905 yards
Slope 138
Rating 73.9

The 18 semi-private holes at Pine Forest wind through the tall Summerville pines with numerous live oaks, dogwoods and a lake system thrown in for good measure. With an equal balance of straightaways, doglegs and elevation changes, this course is nicely balanced, with challenges and fun in store for golfers of all levels. Rental clubs and electric carts are available.

At 6,905 yards with a 138-slope rating, Pine Forest lives up to its name, as the course has numerous barriers of tall Summerville pines to cause problems for an errant shot. The Bob Spence design also makes use of water to add to the difficulty of some holes. It's a semi-private course, and they've named each hole, with No. 12 being known as "Little Augusta" while No. 15 is "Wastelands."

Punched Greens

Hopefully the maintenance on the greens will improved their quality and condition going forward.

Better greens would make this a much better course.

Wow that was bad…

I never leave bad reviews but this time I don’t have a choice… the greens are the most awful greens I’ve seen in a long time. Not sure what’s going on but they are so bad, might as well just putt in the rough…. Fairways are decent, tee boxes are very bad as well. Nice course layout so it’s very unfortunate the course is in such bad shape. Save your money and go somewhere else unless you don’t really care about course condition.

Incredibly slow pace

Round was delayed by 30 min because course didn't have enough carts. No rangers on duty and the pace was backed up on every hole round took 5 an 1/2 hours

Overall nice course, but...

First time playing here. Overall the course was nice and well maintained. The greens were complete garbage, as bad as if they were just aerated even though they weren’t. Tee times must have been way overbooked as well because there was a 20+ minute delay for a scheduled tee time and play was stop and go all day

Tee times were 8 min apart and there were 4 groups waiting on the 1st when it was our tee time. No ranger and the starter we didn't even speak to. Took us 5 hours to get through 15 holes and then we had to leave. Greens were slow and bumpy.

Friendly staff. Nice amenities.

We were vacationing from Wisconsin and found a nice twilight deal. Greens were in rough shape. I don’t know anything about SC golf season so maybe it’s just a tough time of year to keep the course up. The course is in a residential neighborhood but it never felt like the homes came into play which was nice. We did get stuck behind a 5some of local teenagers which was frustrating. Course layout is nice and challenging with plenty of lies to make you think.

Kudos, except for the greens

Always have respected the challenge of this course with its variety of good golf holes, raised greens, and well maintained fairways. Something needs to be done with the greens however. Shaggy and bumpy greens detract from a mostly enjoyable round of golf.

Poor Green Conditions

Nice layout and course. Greens are in such poor shape there is no way to read them or have a decent put. The T boxes were not mowed or trimmed and rock hard. Was in better shape a couple years ago.
