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."

Cart path only, frost delay, slow play and pretty lousy greens. It is winter, but overall it is at best in mediocre shape.

Slooooooooow

Tuesday after Christmas and course was way over booked. Sat in line at #1 tee box for 30 minutes past our tee time. Driving range closed at 11:20 because they ran out of balls and didn’t want to collect them. People everywhere and couldn’t even use the range. 3 hours to play 9 holes. Terrible experience and first time there.

Challenging course, but mud/muck was everywhere.

Played with a Hot Deal from Golf Now. It rained a few days prior to playing and the course still had mud and muck everywhere. Had to be cart path only. If you got anywhere near some of the greens you had to be careful that you didn't slip because all of the greens were elevate and some were surrounded by mud. It is a challenging course--18 holes with water on every one of them. Bring more than one ball! Took 5 hrs to finish the round. Better draining and maintenance and it would be a first class course.

It was ok.. cart path only. I have played this course quite a few times and most of the times I played this course was cart path only. One of the negatives about the course.

The course needs major upgrading

The course needs major upgrading. Big holes and cracks on cart paths. Got to see a chiropractor afterwards.

Greens weren't cut or air blown, Ball was bouncing all over the place.

Slow play

The round took 5 hours, no kidding. They don't have a Marshall to ensure speed of play. Still, had a good time.
