This is a very nice course that needs some rain to make it excellent. We followed the maintenance team that was sanding all the greens. The greens still putted pretty well, given the dry conditions. Everyone that we talked to was extremely pleasant and for the $34 hot deal was an incredible value.

I will come back next time in Hilton Head.

This is the second time for me playing this course. Each time a slow group was in front of us and refused to let us through. It took so long to play each hole that I quit and left my group after only 7 holes. On top of that a Ranger came around and saw the slow group but never told them to pick up the pace or let us through. It was one man teaching three people how to play. The course itself was said to be in good condition one several reviews, but it was terrible. Some of the worse greens I ever played on in my 21 plus years of golf. I drove an hour and a half to play to so I'll just say will not do that again. Most of the people were nice, except the so called pro in the shop. (Not the guy behind the register). People putting up the carts were great.

Greens were rock hard and had more seed sand than grass which made play very inconsistent. Would love the play the Pine Crest again if it were better taken care of.

The greens were in good condition. The layout was nice, with the exception of the lady tees. Fairly long for women. Would play it again.

I'm a new local and just learning the courses in the area. I have played this one twice and enjoyed it both times. Nice layout and the course is greening up. My only wish is that the tee boxes had been a bit more lush. Great overall deal at $35 plus GN convenience fee. We had the 9:08 tee time on a Thursday.

I enjoyed the layout of this course. Lots of water and sand. Challenging. Many very nice views on this course. The problem was , the course needed water very badly. It could be much nicer. Need to turn on the irrigation. The staff were very friendly. I would come back.

Played the course in mid February and greens in really good shape. End of March, not as good. Fairways hard and little grass. With warm winter here should be growing. Need to be watered. Many tees were dirt. Really no excuse for this. Layout is OK with generous landing zones. Brown Group needs to put some money into the courses in Bluffton. The only advantage is price and this was not a good value for $44.

Nice course, challenging, water, sand but most holes have some room off the tee for a single digit handicap. excellent par 5's. Play the front tees if over a 10 handicap and you will enjoy the course.

Had a very nice golf outing at Pinecrest.Course was in pretty good shape especially the greens.Course layout was very good.Loved the par threes.

Long distances between holes-walking the course would be impossible.

No cart service on the course and no water provided so come prepared

The only drawback to this course and tee time were tee box conditions. The placement and condition was on bare dirt on most of the tee boxes. Other than that, it is a decent course. I wish they wouldn't have built houses directly on the fairway.
