Getting a face lift

The Pines is seeing some new features starting with the addition of yardage stakes and some new fairway bunkers. They are also working on existing bunkers and bulkheads. The course challenges you to play smart golf just gripping it and ripping it will put you in some difficult positions or cost you some strokes. The greens are firm and small so accurate approach shots are a must Looking forward to warmer weather that will stimulate the grass growing.

Coming Back!

Played the Pines for the first time in a long time after leaving there during the YMCA days. My son practiced there this fall with the Camden school team & it still had a ways to go. But they have put a ton of work into the place the last few months and oh my goodness what a difference!! Greens were rolling on par with the higher end courses in the area and the bunkers they are keeping were playable & very decent. I won’t be renewing my membership at the Carolina Club/The Pointe this year but going to join the Pines and keep my money here in this area, the Beach courses don’t need it.

Elizabeth City needs Golf & The Pines!

Headed in the right direction! Awesome work!

Nice course to play

Have played this quite a few times and it is a fun place to play. The greens still need some work since they reopened. The staff has done a great job cleaning it up and keeping it looking good. I will definitely play it again.

Great first time!

Staff was exceedingly nice and accommodating, and the course layout was difficult but beautiful. Some of the greens were a little rough but most were fantastic. I recommend high viz balls as white balls get lost in the pine needles, but highly recommend this course

Terrible course, Poor management

The pines used to be a very well maintained course. Since reopening, The course is terrible, the course has now been re opened for over a year and there has been no change. the lazy grounds crew would rather shoot roman candles at the geese and fish the ponds instead of cutting the grass, the tee boxes and fairways are always very long, it takes a whole hour to clean a bunker out yet every bunker on the course is basically grass and as hard a cement, they have edged the sidewalks on the whole course but didn’t clean up the overhang. the old people there think they own the course. the pines needs help.

Good for a cheap local course

It’s cheap and decent. Nothing fancy. The foods good At the bistro, staff has been friendly. Greens are pretty good for the course. The layout is meh. There’s no beverage cart that comes around. This time when I ate there was the most painful elevator music to listen to and the young lady who had some country music playing last time said she couldn’t change it anymore.

Clean it up

Ive been a member of the Pines for many years. Lived through different owners. It is a gem for this community. It needs to be cleaned up. Fairways mowed. Bulkheads repaired. We have a growing community in Elizabeth City. This golf course is a much needed asset. Please take care of the greens, get the fairways mowed, and the weeds removed. People will come from Chesapeake and Moyock and Ahoskie and Hertford to play here if it's in good shape.. It is deteriorating. Please take care of this gem.

Beautiful course

This is a great layout, Definitely senior friendly from the yellow tees. Nice number of dog legs, difficult approaches over water. Any golfer would love this place. Super helpful staff, nice facilities, pro shop, locker room, and a bar for after your round. This is a great value for the cost. Negatives, some of the bunkers have grass or weeds growing in them. $22 for a dozen used golf balls is a bit much, considering they weren’t all in mint condition.
