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."

Needs More Effort on Making It Golfer Friendly!

No indication of flag position on greens. Too many mounds and water incursions into the fairway. Grass not really growing yet in fairways. Grass on greens is very blotchy and bumpy with different varieties of grass starting to grow. Tee positions not very friendly for seniors or women.

Early in the week. Course could have used a little mowing. I expect slow play, but some definite beginners playing without etiquette. For this time of year, course was in great shape.

Do they have a greenskeeper?

Worst grassless greens I have ever paid to play on. Great layout that some money and a greenskeeper could turn into a terrific course.

Test of your Golf Game

Loved the layout of the course. The course made me map out my shots and have interesting decisions to make. Played irons more to set up water shots.
Greens were horrible but over seeding is to blame. It happens but when the greens come back this is a must play course. Enjoy

Pine Forest is one of the best layouts in the area. Tee to green very nice, but greens need some help.
