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 design, bad maintenance

The design of this course is terrific! Great topography, multi-shelved greens, water all around.
The fiarways are full of crabgrass, no distance markers other than 150. So easy to make improvements that would be a terrific course. Not there yet.

Right for the price

The price is right for the conditions and the challenge. Once you play it a few times you can avoid the water! The staff is very friendly and accommodating!

Tricky course

This can be a tricky course, and is great for the thinking golfer. Plenty of hazards to be aware of. Played yesterday and today, and dropped 13 strokes just from the better understanding. Play repeatedly to appreciate the layout.

Great Track

I would definitely recommend taking the drive out here to play. Awesome club in the old style. Lots of trees, so stay straight. Greens need a little more attention, but were true. I'm amazed at the low cost to play here. Hot Deal was $25, are you kidding me?

Green and fairways

Greens are bad with weed, fairways are just as bad. It’s a $20 course. They need to spend some money on weed treatment on entire coarse.

Below Average

This course could be great but the fairways are poorly taken care of, they mowed on the wet fairways before we played, but the course was cart path only as it should've been, but there were tractor tire marks all through the fairways. On a normal day when it's perfect weather and not wet, this course is still more wet that others, and the fairways have way too many weeds, crabgrass, dallas grass, you name it ... the fringe on some holes is all crab grass or dallas grass, and in worse shape than the rough, impossible to putt from, and difficult to chip from. Tee boxes, although elevated slightly hold too much water, and it's tough to take a tee shot in standing water. The greens are covered in splotches of dirt hills and that causes putting to suffer.

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.
