Best Buy and friendly staff.

Drove from Kitty Hawk. A bit of a drive but worthwhile if you make it a whole day excursion to include the charming Edenton small town afterwards. Super professional and friendly staff. Very nice and well stocked pro shop. I enjoyed the course even though the greens were under temporary repair. Not too much water challenge on the course and a moderate number of sand traps. Will come back.

Good Day for Old Duffer

I took a neighbor with me, who hadn't played in awhile. We both enjoyed the round.
We met some folks from New Jersey, who also enjoyed themselves. They were going back the next day!

No Expectations Still Disappointed

The staff was very informative before our round, prepared us for the poor conditions, let us know the plans to renovate in the near future. Got some decent exercise and spent time with family most important thing.

Needs major work

Used to love this course but since it was closed down and mot maintained it now needs major work to most of the course. The greens are on very bad condition and the sand traps are hardpacked and weed filled. I hope with time it will be back to the old pines if not better

Re Building

Haven’t played this course in over eight years, have played it numerous times In the past. The course has changed hands in ownership over the years since I’ve played there and it has really went downhill. The staff that are there now said all the greens were being replaced and the cost was going to be brought back up to somewhere where it was before. If this is all accomplished and I would definitely recommend the course. It’s a nice track just been let go unfortunately wish them luck. Look forward to hopefully going back once the changes have been implemented again cannot comment enough on the friendliness of the staff.

Welcome Back

I played this course yesterday for the first time in about 10 years, I used to work in that area and have played there several times. The course seems to be on the right track to recovery, I believe they’ve been closed down for a couple of years and just reopened a couple of months ago. Fairways were in decent shape, there has been snow and rain recently so ground was soft, no run much at all, grass appeared to be mowed but was still thick.
Greens were in pretty bad shape but it’s been down for couple of years so I didn’t expect them to be in great shape. After speaking to one of the staff members it seems like the new owners are trying to get the place back in shape. I will definitely play more rounds there and am looking forward to seeing the course return to the shape it used to be in. Layout is great but also a challenge, lots of water comes into play on this course but it’s still a lot of fun. Overall I enjoyed my round out there amongst the pines.

Gone to seed

The course was in limbo and not maintained while the new owners negotiated for a lower price.
The greens are thin or nonexistent, the fairways are bad and the bunkers have weeds growing in them.
The layout is good and it’s salvageable but it’s going to take time.
On the bright side the Rueben was good.

YMCA at the Pines

Monday, Midday, so no crowd at all. The course is great, the only complaint is there is so much debris from the trees I lost so many balls, some in the fairway. Otherwise, greens were in good condition, bunkers were almost all in play after lots of rain. Just need to get rid of that debris!

Course is in great shape

I have been playing The Pines for the last few years. Like stated before in past reviews the YMCA of Hampton Roads Va has been running the course and they have done a great job.

The recent wet weather we had the last week or so has been great for the entire course.

Not to mention they have been able to keep up with the demands of a course through the Pandemic we have been experiencing. Everyone from the Pro Shop to the Grounds Crew has done an amazing job. Can't say enough.

Tough conditions

Considering the amount of rain we have had, the course wasn't as bad as it could have been. The greens were in very decent condition. There were some really wet and muddy spots and my plugged on multiple shots. All in all a tough day on the links is still better than a great day at work.

Great band for your buck

Course is in great shape, best bang for your buck by far. It is challenging but not frustratingly difficult. I would definitely recommend to friends and will continue to come back as much as possible. Well worth the drive from Chesapeake for me!
