Good value

Enjoyed the course. Price was fair. Pace of play a little slow, but we were a three-some so expected to wait some. Greens in great condition and fairways very nice. Lunch in the restaurant after the round was very good.
Would go back if in the area.

As always Whispering Pines Pines Course was in Excellent Condition. Very Friendly and Helpful Staff in the Club House. Course was Very Busy and with a 10:28 Tee Time we made it around the course in 4:15 minutes. Which is Great in a Holiday weekend. Play here if you have a chance!!

Good Course but lacking amenities

The pines course was in great shape. The fairways and greens were some of the best I have played this season. But as the heat of the day set in the greens got pretty fast. The biggest complaint is that for a CC with 2 courses there was no real food or drink options, only a mini fridge with some pastries. And that at the turn you are no where near the clubhouse to get anything even if you wanted too.

Good Course / Good Value

The Pines course was our "inexpensive" course this year and we generally enjoyed it. Greens were in good shape. Fairways had not totally greened up, but that may be due to the wet winter. We will probably play it again on some future trip

Good value for the money

We played the Pines course today and will play the River course tomorrow. The layout was interesting and enjoyable and the pace of play excellent. The course would benefit from some attention but was great value overall.

A favorite classic design

Played this course several times each fall for the past 40 years. It is in superb condition from tees through greens. Course has two par 5's we call the mother holes. You'll love em or hate them, but you'll want to play them again.

The course has accommodations, called the villas. Great for groups, you can get 8 interconnecting rooms.

The second course is a great design but needs green renovations

My report above praised the pines course, that is sometimes called by it's old name, the East course. The River or West course was terrible

Putts were true

Not sure if this just an easy course or I just had a great round. Maybe it’s a little of both. I enjoyed it a plan on playing it again soon.

Good Challenge

I enjoyed this course. First time players will hit to some places they wish they hadn’t. Course knowledge helps. Greens above average condition. Tee boxes could use some attention. Natural course with no real rough. Hit fairways and you will have a good lie and stance. Trees on both sides of wide fairways. Sand traps are very much in play. I look forward to playing again someday.
