The course was in good shape even though the greens had been aerated a couple of weeks prior. Would play again.

Never disappointed here.Some fairways still pretty wet from previous day's rain but still very playable.The greens are huge so hit your approach shots close or you might not have enough club to get to the hole.The greens are recovering nicely.i will play many more rounds there while at Hilton Head.

Wow, what a great course! Even with the greens being aerated the rest of the course was just beautiful! I got paired with someone who had already played the course and was very thankful that I did. The course is very spread out and could get confusing if you have never played there. But, the course is very open, nice wide fairways, good for beginners or people that have a high handy cap. Go place this course!

This course has a great layout and is fun to play.

Would not walk this one. Quite a distance between many holes.

Course was in overall very good shape. The greens were bumpy and slow, buy aeration was planned for later in the week. Bermuda grass grows sideways so it causes uneven surfaces over time.

Our group gave the thumbs up, we will be back next year!

I was looking forward to playing this course again after a 4 year gap. Unfortunately the conditions did not measure up to my past experience and memories. The staff is very friendly though and their service was excellent. Sadly the tee boxes were in poor shape, the fairways were not in great condition and the greens were bumpy, dried out and some had been sanded within the past week. Still the layout is nice and winds though the housing development attractively. Regrettably the friendliness of the staff were not able to make up for the overall disappointing golf experience.

For the cost of play in the Hilton Head area, this is well worth the money. About 25 minutes from where we were at on the island. Staff friendly. Fairly wide fairways, large greens. Would definitely play again!

This is a super long course. I do not recommend walking all 18 unless you're super fit.

Difficulty - Course has some blind water hazards and some very well placed fairway bunkers that you must carry or refrain from the driver.. If you don't drive the ball at least 275 yards with accuracy on a consistent basis, it will be like a day at the beach on a few holes. Bunkers surround a few holes. Break out the sunscreen, shovel and buckets if you come up short on the approach. Overshoot the green (easy to do since they're rock solid) and it's beach city USA.

Pros- Most fairways were in okay conditions which allowed a fair roll.

Cons- Several tee boxes and most of the greens need lots of attention. Most of the greens were hard as stone and mostly bare. It's too bad about the conditions because PineCrest has the layout and design to be a very nice and challenging course.

Pace of Play- Tee times seemed to have been scheduled about 15 minutes apart which allows most 4sums to be hitting their 3rd shot before the next group tees off. IMO, the perfect pace of play. Many of the other area courses could learn a thing of two from PC about tee times.

Overall Thought- Pinecrest reminded of a lot of upstate SC courses where most greens become scorched due to mid Summer heat and lack of water.

At this time, I would not recommend to a friend due to conditions. If PC was in upstate, SC; it would be a $25/30 in it's current condition. Since it is in a tourist area of the low country; IMO, it should be a $35/40 course in it's current condition.

Best condition of the Bluffton Brown group courses which isn't saying much still municipal golf course conditions. They seem to be letting go of the Bluffton courses and putting everything into the two Hilton Head courses.

My foursome played here on a slightly overcast day. Had a real good time playing while in Hilton Head for a couple days. Greens had been fertilized and were a little bumpy but that is to be expected at this time of year.

Overall a very nice course and a good value for the money. It looked very challenging from the longer tees which I did not play.

This course has potential to be a nice track. The holes themselves are nice and challenging with the many bunkers and water. However, the course is not kept up like it should be. The greens were all top dressed which meant they had a lot of sand on them and weren't cut. They were very slow and the ball bounced a lot not allowing it to roll true. Also, the tee boxes hadn't been cut in awhile and by 10 am in the morning the tee markers were still not all latex out.

It was a little frustrating to not be told about the course from any one checking in bags or in the pro shop. Also, there was no starter or cart girls on the course.

Finally, be aware this course is extremely spread out. This is not a course to walk!
