Loved the wide open fairways. I sprayed drives all over the place, but still scored in the mid 80’s. Paired up with an older couple who turned out the be the best company in the world. Course was in great condition despite the rain and sanded greens. I was very impressed with all the staff, Tiffany in the hospitality area was amazing.

The greens have grown in from the Aeration and they are cutting them lower so they are putting much faster now. Everything is green and plush. A pleasure playing the course.

The greens are in the transitional stage right now due to the aeration and sanding. Tis the season, but, they are plush, green, and full. It won't take long, another week maybe, to be back to normal. I am not noticing any weeds on the greens or fairways. Greens keeper and staff are doing a wonderful job and have much improved the course over the past 3 years. I would like to see the greens cut just a couple of millimeters shorter to make them a little faster on the putts.

Wide open fairways and decent greens are perfect for beginners and those who need a good dose of confidence from playing on more difficult courses. Course is in better shape than I’ve seen in the past.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars on the course conditions was because the greens were punched and aerated a few days or week before I played. But they used the small punch machine and it didn't make all that much difference, they were just a bit slower than normal. Other than that, the course is in beautiful condition. The Pines Course is always a nice challenge, wide forgiving fairways for that not so straight drive.
