Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 73
Length 7132 yards
Slope 131
Rating 74.4

Pine Hills Country Club sprawls cross 165 acres of Long Island's protected Pine Barrens. The golf course plays long at over 7,000 yards from the back tees but it is a playable and fair test. It is challenging as well with quite a bit of water and sand coming into play throughout. Towering, mature pines also line narrow fairways. One of the most difficult holes is the par-4 11th. This dogleg left is one of the many holes with water and it also features a green that is severely sloped from back to front. While the golf course is the main attraction, Pine Hills is also known for having the area's best public practice facility. The club boasts a driving range with target greens, a putting green with a 9-hole practice course, and a chipping green with a greenside sand trap.

Immaculate greens

I have play this course before and always enjoy the lay out. The par 5 12th hole is one my favorite holes on Long Island. The greens were immaculate for the time of year. They ran true. The fairways and Tee boxes were good shape. The pace of play was good. The staff were friendly.If you haven't tried this course, you should.

Excellent for February

Greens were fast and healthy for mid-winter. Fun course to play. Group ahead of us was over two holes behind and nobody seemed to be doing anything about it. Place could use a ranger.

Nice Fall Golf Day

The course is in good shape for late in the season. Tee boxes and fairways excellent. Worth a hot deal on golf now. Definitely one of the better courses on Longisland.
