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."

Greens are terrible

Greens are the worst I’ve played on and I live in the panhandle.

Great course for the money

Lots of trees and water so bring extra balls. Very bumpy course the cart paths are almost undriveable. Greens arent in the best condition so don’t expect to your ball to stay on line fairways are decent a couple muddy spots as expected. Pace of play isn’t the best depending on time of play an average round is 4-5 hrs if you tee off around 12pm. Staff is really friendly & polite. Overall course is a 3.5 out of 5 but you almost can’t beat the hot deal pricing on this course.

Great course. Very busy

We felt rushed by the people behind us and held up by the people in front of us. It was just a really busy day. Other than that it was great! Lovely course.

Great track!

First time playing here. Course has some great moments, and also some that need some prior knowledge (luckily I was playing with a regular). A lot of rain the night before, so there was some standing water, but nothing obscene. Greens were a bit hairy, so they were quite slow. Pace of play was also slow with a good bit of waiting, but it was Memorial Day, so that’s to be expected. Overall great course and would play again anytime!

Needing improvement

The course has always been in good condition but just recently playing there were a lot of burnt greens. Tee boxes were extremely hard and unable to use tees on a few. Will not be playing there for the rates they are charging now. There was no starter or anyone on the course to help with pace of play. Finished a round just over 5 hours. Typical round with my group takes 3-3.5 when we have four. This day we only had 3 in our group.

Solid and a good value

Challenging but fair golf course. A few weird tee boxes and the hardest ground I have played on in a while, but overall a good walkable track. Will definitely play again.

Gem

Course is a great condition, always good rates and you can’t beat the fact that it reminds of a little Augusta National.
