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."

great course to challenge yourself

a few wet spots around from rain BUT the course simply posted 90 degree rule not cart path only. The greens are growing but very playable. The course makes you use most of your clubs. Great day out there. Already booked for tomorrow.

Nice but challenging course

Course was in good shape overall. Fairways are very hard, greens were fast, but a few were burnt and brown. Course requires accurate shots, couple blind water hazards, pay attention to hole overviews. Nice layout, worth the afternoon rate.

Good course

This is a nice course. They do need to update their cart paths and bridges. Cart paths are in bad shape through out the course. Bridges and wooden path ways to a few holes are in need of some TLC bad. All in all the course was good and fun to play.

Difficult course/Great value

Awesome setup, but very difficult scoring wise. Carolina courses tend to roll out quite a bit and with so many moguls and pines a bad bounce can be devastating. Par 4’s are pretty long here, it’s the short Par 3’s and 5’s that make the distance misleading. From the Blue tees 6 of 10 Par 4’s are over 400 yards so poor tee shots can lead to long approach shots to very protected greens.

Greens are very slow during spring because of the nature of Bermuda grass, just cannot mow it tight with the amount of Poa that grows up on them. Highly recommend this course because it’s fun, challenging and reasonable. Some local courses (looking at you Wescott) are absurdly priced compared to here. For instance it’s $22 after 4 to golf here, Wescott is $35 lol.

Unbelievable bargain.

This "hot deal" was really more than I expected. Nice course, well kept, fairly challenging. No towels at the ball washers, but that is really not a big deal. Unbeatable for the price.

Nic course

I was on vacation and booked this course through golf now. It was a nice course, your typical links style with not a lot of challenging holes. The greens were very slow as it appeared they have not been cut for while. They however were in good shape. I would go back again.

First timer

I was very disappointed when we arrived and found three foursomes on the TEe ahead of us at our teatime. Apparently our teatime was double booked. There was no Ranger to resolve the issue. So we had to wait through three teetimes to play. Once playing the course Was very challenging. I will go back but make sure that your teatime is correct and will be honored.

Stellar conditions for early March

Bought a real cheap hot deal for a beautiful Saturday midday round. Looking back, I would’ve paid twice as much. Greens were in great condition, pretty fast and rolled true. Not too soggy even after tons of rain recently. Just generally more lush than expected for this time of year. Looking forward to going back.

I imagine this is a really nice course when there is grass on the fairways. Winter conditions are very wet.

Dufficult course that does not drain well

Not extremely long but very difficult. The fairways are peppered with moguls, which also surround the greens. The greens are also all elevated. Don’t leave your wedges at home. You will not roll any balls onto these greens. You have to put it there. In good wreathes a good course, but rain is.bane to this course. On the day I played it was cart path only. Still water was everywhere as were muddy areas. The driving range was closed because the rain softens the ground are balls are lost in the mud. Call before going the find out the conditions. I have played this course several times and when it is in good shape it is a fun course.
