The Club at Pine Forest
The 18 semi-private holes at Pine Forest wind through the tall Summerville pines with numerous live oaks, dogwoods and a lake system thrown in for good measure. With an equal balance of straightaways, doglegs and elevation changes, this course is nicely balanced, with challenges and fun in store for golfers of all levels. Rental clubs and electric carts are available.
At 6,905 yards with a 138-slope rating, Pine Forest lives up to its name, as the course has numerous barriers of tall Summerville pines to cause problems for an errant shot. The Bob Spence design also makes use of water to add to the difficulty of some holes. It's a semi-private course, and they've named each hole, with No. 12 being known as "Little Augusta" while No. 15 is "Wastelands."

In between storms
Arrived just after a storm and was able to play 18 before the next ....was a single, but then hooked up with a sweet gentleman on the back nine for expediency. The course is challenging, lots of hills, water, eTc. Enjoyed very much
Lots of water
Great value for the money. The greens were fairly slow. Lots of water around the course.
Tough but fun
I like playing here. The staff is very friendly. The course can play different each time you play it. If it's wet, it's long, dry the ball rolls and rolls. The greens are challenging but fair.
I love the challenges of this course.
It's a challenge
Very well laid out course. It is very challenging. If you want to challenge yourself, this is the one. Water everywhere, read the course yardage book, and bring plenty of balls, including golf balls.
The layout is great
The tees were in good condition and the fairways were great and the greens were okay just had a few that needed some work. The problem I had was the pace of play. I was a single that played 14 or 15 holes behind a foursome that had no etiquette what so ever and no concern for fellow golfers they had the whole course backed up with all holes in front of them open course needed a ranger
Great Price / Challenging Course
If this course was maintained to its fullest potential it would be the nicest and hardest course in Summerville and one of the nicest courses in all of Charleston. Pine Forest is hit-or-miss. If we get rain here in Charleston then this course fairs well, if not it tends to dry out quickly. Greens currently are in good shape but need a little bit of work. I have seen much worse though. You cannot beat the daily special pricing and with that said while there are alot of great courses here in Charleston, Pine Forest is one of the most challenging courses and a great place to work on your game. You don't play this course to be impressed by the condition of the fairways or greens, you play this course to be challenged by all the elevated greens and water on evey hole, that by the way will eat your bag dry of balls!!! You play this course to improve your game...
Course is getting better
They need new range balls. Their 's are at least 2 to 3 yrs. Old. Then they need to mow the fairways they are way too slow. The layout is very challenging must hit God shots to score. Greens are getting better bedding to sped them up. Enjoyed the round will be back. Kevin B
Great layout terrible condition. There should never be a cloud of dust when your ball lands on the green.
Wonderful layout . Greens were not in very good condition. In spite of that, I would not hesitate to play the course again.
A Challenge but Worth It
If you want to see where your game is, play this course. At least for me, it was a bit challenging but fun. It seemed to play a little long for my normal club choices.
The greens were in fair shape but they have noticeable wear. Overall, they didn’t contribute to my putting woes, that’s all on me.
This is my first round at the course and managed to hit 11 out of 14 fairways. By far the best driving day I have had to date for any course I’ve played. I was surprised, but my driver was on fire. But, Fairways hit doesn’t necessarily equate to better scores, as my card reflects.
My suggestion, get the yardage book and study the course layout then manage your game accordingly. Your bound to have an enjoyable round.
In closing, book a tee time and play this course, you won’t be sorry.
Played on Father’s Day, so it was crowded with lots of dad’s golfing with their children. This course offers a challenging layout with plenty of hazards to watch out for. I’d recommend it to anyone.
Always a great course to play. Back nine is always challenging with play off the tee. Course condition was good for the recent weather.
SLOW but good value for 9 holes
This is a great course if you have 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes on a weekend afternoon.
Management here lets its members play "best ball" in multi groups of 8! It slows pace of play up tremendously.
Course was wonderful
it was a perfect day in May to play. The wether was excellent. the course was in good condition. Some greens could use some work. The pace of play was good. We did 18 holes in just under 4 hours.
The staff was very hospitable. i definitely will ply there again
Good course, great value
Play this course often, great value. Course is challenging with water on every hole. A few holes pretty long. Greens so-so, rest of course decent. Price is excellent.
