About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6905
Slope 138
Rating 73.9
Type Semi-Private
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."

Challenging Course

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good challenge. The narrow fairways and ponds make for the usual challenges, but having basically no sand traps with sand in them and the greens being burnt out on most greens, it made for an unusually tough experience.

Save the greens!!!

I’ve played this course multiple times. The course layout and design are good. Some holes can be very challenging and it could be a fun place to place if...... the greens weren’t so bad!!!! All of the greens have some sort of fungus or lack there of grass! None of them roll smoothly at all! It’s all about getting it close on the approach bc if your anywhere more than 4-6ft out it’s a complete guess on where the ball might go!! Not really worth the money solely bc of the greens, it makes the round that much more not enjoyable!

First timer

I came from San Diego so I try not to be biased. The fairways were great, the course layout was challenging and the hills made some interesting lies, but the greens were awful. I could see that they are doing their best to get them back but the winter storm definitely took its toll. Without a good layer of grass on the green I got zero backspin, and had decent roll. Had a blast overall though!

Tough course

Water on most holes so you need to keep it straight. Lots of tall pines.
