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."

First time playing here. Course has some great moments, and also some that need some prior knowledge (luckily I was playing with a regular). A lot of rain the night before, so there was some standing water, but nothing obscene. Greens were a bit hairy, so they were quite slow. Pace of play was also slow with a good bit of waiting, but it was Memorial Day, so that’s to be expected. Overall great course and would play again anytime!
The course has always been in good condition but just recently playing there were a lot of burnt greens. Tee boxes were extremely hard and unable to use tees on a few. Will not be playing there for the rates they are charging now. There was no starter or anyone on the course to help with pace of play. Finished a round just over 5 hours. Typical round with my group takes 3-3.5 when we have four. This day we only had 3 in our group.
Solid and a good value
Challenging but fair golf course. A few weird tee boxes and the hardest ground I have played on in a while, but overall a good walkable track. Will definitely play again.
Course is a great condition, always good rates and you can’t beat the fact that it reminds of a little Augusta National.

Course was very wet, cart paths very bumpy. Lot of water hazrds. Got no run on frways. Maybe better in late spring early summer
This coarse is a little more challenging but not enough to discourage you but enough to make you want to come back for more.
Course in very bad shape and greens were horrible. It was my first round since moving here and I was very disappointed.
The staff set me right up to go a little ahead. My only set back was the tightness to play on the course, especially on a windy day such as today. It is not the best course by far (roots have taken a toll on the cart path, dry greens with bald spots, and more random 10 foot wide hills that are 5 foot tall) hitting these hills and the winding cart paths bounce your ball either A.) to the next hole which runs parallel to previous hole or B.) into the thorn thick woods. The “members” act like this is Augusta and have an attitude, will NOT let you play through their sub BOGEY golf game. The staff was friendly as can be, with some up keep to the cart trails, some more trees between the parallel holes, and either an irrigation system for lack of rain, this course could be pretty awesome. I Would recommend this to anyone as I intend to play here again but only for the marked down price I did today
Have played here many times. Just turned 65 so I played the Sr tees. Different layout,but the greens are still very challenging. Greens were much better than last time . smooth and true with decent speed. Will be back this year and recommend it to friends. Still have to have a great short game. Shot 74.
Do not book the 8:20 a.m. tee time because you will not tee off at that time. The course apparently has a group of around 20 or so men who play every morning at 8 a.m. in something called a blitz. Even though all the men appeared to be ready to go before 8 a.m., no one teed off until then. It wasn't until I started walking towards the 1st tee that I realized I would be waiting because there will still 2 more groups of these men to tee off. As you can imagine 4 or 5 foursomes not teeing off until 8 a.m. meant I would not be meeting my 8:20 tee time. I'm unsure why the course has tee times available when obviously this group plays every day.
I was a single and I played behind these groups for the entire 18. I thought at some point during the round golf etiquette would take over and the men would realize that even thought I was walking and they each had their own cart I was still waiting on every shot anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes. At no time did I ever see a ranger and I'm guessing even if there was one, it wouldn't have mattered. Apparently these men run the course and they didn't care if anyone else was playing. And the course seems to have decided to cater to these men rather than ensuring the pace of play or golf etiquette is being observed.
During the back 9 I decided to start walking even slower to my next shot; however I couldn't seem to put any space between myself and this group. I was happy when the 18 holes were over. Another note about the course in general is possibly stop overwatering the greens and the area around the greens. There hasn't been rain for several weeks, yet the entire area around every green was a muddy mosh pit because of how much it had been watered. There was no need for this.
If I play here again, I will either call and try to get a much earlier tee time or wait until later in the day when this group of "Blitz Men" are off the course.
This tee time should not even be posted by the course or if it is going to be there should be a notation by it alerting those interested that they may have an 8:20 tee time, but they will not be teeing off then and to be prepared to follow individuals who could care less about anyone but themselves.
Lots of water!!
A bit too much water for us! Apart from that we had a lovely experience (despite losing balls in the water hazards!!!). The pro shop were most helpful and very pleasant. Everyone we met both on and off the course very friendly.
Good test of golf
Good test of your golf game.one or two tees not too good but the rest of the course is in good condition.Service in the clubhouse excellent.
