About

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

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."

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.

At one time was good

All I can say is this used to be a good place to play.
The last several time have been extremely slow!
Book a 9 hole tee time and it takes 2 1/2 hours because the members have all access to the course at any time!
Today there were two groups of 8 members playing in front of us and everyone else out there. 8 on the fairway, 8 on the green! We waited sometimes two groups deep to tee off when we caught up on the 3rd hole!
Management does not care and lets them do it and make excuses.

Love the course hate a 5 hr round

Love the course but if you can’t play a round of golf in 4 hrs or less it’s not enjoyable. 5 hours was just too much.

Challenging Course

The course is challenging. It was the driest I have ever seen it. Greens were inconsistent for speed. We have played a number of times and enjoy playing there.

Rain Checks Needed

The course greens were starting to show signs of disease, but the rest of the course was in great shape. My major problem for this round was the weather as the thunderstorms rolled in during the 9th hole. We were told that a rain check for the last nine holes could not be issued by the course since our round was a "Hot Deal" booked through Golf Now and we should contact Golf Now for a refund on the remaining 9 holes. This is the third time this has happened. There is no phone number listed on the web site to contact golf now by phone that I'm aware of during or after a round is cancelled due to inclement weather.

Challenging course but fair

The course condition was not great but it’s winter. It is a bit of a links course and the greens are challenging. The ground is hard but I’m used to Florida’s sandy soil.

Overall a good experience. 4.5 hours to play Saturday morning in a public course is not bad at all.

Nice layout

Really enjoyed playing this challenging course, the moguls, mounds and grass bunkers made it feel a bit like a links course. The fairways were in great conditions and several multi teired greens made them a real challenge to read. Water comes into play on many holes so bring extra balls!
The course winds thru some beautiful wooded areas with a creek that winds throughout making for a nice setting, I would play this course again

Greatly improved course!

5th time playing here and I must say the owners ha e fo alot put the money in the right spots. Greens are virtually flawless, not spotty and hard like they used to be. Rough around the hills has been cut down and pine needles raked away. This is a very challenging course, and with it being cleaned up like it is now, there is no better value in Charleston! Playing here weekly now!

Great Lay out --bring your A game

Greens are the best I have seen them in a really long time. Fairways have grass, no excuse not to get a good lie. Green side fringe 1st cut is really good.
