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."

A must play

Very impressive golf course. Course layout is top shelf and condition of fairways and greens are excellent. Bunkers need some TLC. The toughest part is getting around the course in a golf cart; cart paths are in severe need of repair and irregularities (bumps) on the fairways and rough are tough on your clubs and backside. Very challenging but highly recommended if you like to air out your driver, hit to elevated greens (club up 1 or 2 clubs, and enjoy lots of undulations, tall pines and water hazards.

Good not great

Decent course. Biggest problem was the ground was extremely hard. Broke several tees trying to get them in the ground. Greens are sooo slow. Hard to take a good divot when the ground is so hard. Nice layout and views.

Never been so embarrassed to bring my friend's to this place

I will start off by saying I'm a super intendent of golf . I have never been so ashamed to say my favorite course in Charleston is in this bad of shape! I know the superintendent and am very upset how bad the course was . The greens were terrible absolutely terrible , dollar spot dollar weed , algee all over just the worst maintenance I have ever witnessed . Do not waste your time nor money ! There was kids fishing in every pond, a man and lady fishing for golf balls , two kids riding back and forth on motr scooter all over all afternoon yelling and having a blast .! Got to one hole and there was someone working on there pitching and putting on green we were on had twenty five golf balls all over. Then there was a gaggle of geese of about 65 on green and it was all POOP!!! This course was the best layout and was in such good shape and now I wouldn't play again if it was FREE! Get it together KH ...

Great layout, rough greens

Absolutely loved the course all the way up until the greens. The layout was fantastic. It was challenging in a good way. The greens were just in horrible shape. Not a lot of green grass and almost every putt outside of 2 feet bounced a lot. Dead spots on greens were prominent as well. If the greens were in great, or even good, shape, then I would give this course 5 stars.

Pine Forest Review

I like the layout of this course BUT the condition of the Greens are TERRIBLE! Some greens are completely burnt out, others have been aerated & putting on them is impossible. Do NOT play here until they FIX the greens. :-(
