Course Should Have Benn Closed

There were at least 4 holes the cups were full of water due to the amount of water saturation from previous days rain. The greens were almost unusable (so soggy) for 6 or 7 holes. I have played there many times before and it is always a little wet after rains but usually in fine shape. On the Sunday they should have closed the course.

Not really a golf course

This was not a golf course. It was like playing in someones back yard. Fairways not mowed. Greens were in really bad shape. Tee boxes muddy. Grass was so long on both sides of the "fairway" No price would make me go back here. Not even free.

Good Value

The course was not in the best conditions, but what do you expect with triple digit temperatures and a lack of rain. I really enjoyed playing the course. It has always been one of my favorite out of town courses and it still is. It is not easy, but is fun to play. The pace of play is never hurried. I would play this again and again,

I’ve played Pine Forest many times over the years. But my most recent round - I found the greens to be over watered, while the tee boxes needed a hammer to get a tee in the ground on several holes. The layout itself is a challenge without doubt! But there is alot of “erosion” on alot of the holes... especially in the 4th, 6th, 13th & 18th fairways (I think I remembered them correctly). I hope the new ownership can address these issues because I do appreciate the layout and the challenge it offers. The greens are extremely challenging- but slow... probably from the saturation more than anything.

Absolutely love playing this course

This is one of my all time favorites. By far and away the best value I've played. So much variety in the course. Only complaint is that it is not closer to Houston!

Great soccer golf course!

Charging premium prices to play on golf course that is now doubling as a soccer golf course.

The sad thing is the conditions are better for the soccer golf course than the actual golf course.

Greens are better but still the course needs a lot of help.

I would avoid until further notice.

Nice course, uncut Fairways & Greens

I've played twice recently (a Sat & Sun) at Pine Forest, and the Greens are PAINFULLY SLOW, due to being left shaggy. Also the fairways are not cut often enough to be true fairways... overall cheapness & maintenance neglect at this course. It's too bad, due to a challenging layout with interesting views & elevation changes. Please do better new management!

Worth the drive

I had to drive about 50 miles to play here. Between hurricanes ,drought and fires the area has had its problems. However conditions were better than expected. Lots of t boxes allow each player to pick a comfortable distance. Picturesque layout. I only had to issues. Many t boxes were very unlevel but most of all.the greens were ridiculously SLOW ! they held a shot but were close to being unputtable.

You can't beat Pine Forest

Pick your shots and enjoy the view, great course in a beautiful area. Course took a hit late winter as the greens struggled to recover from some serious cold, they have since made a strong comeback with great ground management
