The best public golf courses in the state.Well worth the money
Public Course, Private Experience
Pinehills is one of my favorite golf experiences. The staff is helpful and treat everyone like they are members at an exclusive country club.
The Jones course plays firm and fast. The ball bounds down the fairways and there is plenty of room to hit it. The one concern is that the fairways are plateaus which will repel wayward shots.
The greens are firm, fast, and true. They are really fun to putt and they seem to fall. Some slopes to the greens but nothing too daunting.
This course is one of the best experiences in the state. Regular price of $125 is probably still worth it but you can also get in after 1:30 for $80 which is exceptional value.
One of the Most Challenging Courses
I play from the blue tees and this course is very tough, in particular the back 9, I think the total yards is like 6700-6800. The starter did a terrible job that day so it was a very slow long round. The course is unforgiving and punishes any poor shots. It’s also windy which just adds to the challenge. The bunkers are positioned in a way that sucks your ball in like a vacuum. The approach shots are very challenging. If you are looking to have some fun and shoot low scores this is not the course to do it. This is the course you play when you want to test your game. But overall it’s a great test of golf and well maintained.
While the golf course was excellent and the food was spectacular, we were paired with a couple of women who knew nothing about the etiquette of golf. They were constantly chattering and moving carts during our swings, and they lived on the property!. Pace of play was horrendous and playing in the afternoon we must have fixed about 10 ball marks on every green. That being said I would still come again.
Be a member for the day
Unbelievable customer service, everyone is incredibly friendly. They treat you as if you were a member.
These 2 championship layout are the best in the area. Plus a great practice area.
What can I say...always phenomenal
If you follow me on twitter or you have just seen my previous reviews on GolfAdvisor you know how I feel about the Jones course at Pinehills. Both of the courses at this property are two of the best public courses in Massachusetts. The Jones course is an interesting layout , it is tighter than Nicklaus and far more demanding off the tees. Once again the course was in excellent condition from tee to green. The greens were very consistent and they held as well. You can’t go wrong with either course at Pinehills but if you want a bit of a tougher test then Jones is the course for you.
After many years away the game I'm playing again and pine hills is great golf destinations with 2 championship courses. Just bring your A game. Come check for yourself and you will make return visit just like me
This course is always in tip top shape and the practice facilities are great. Never been to a public course this nice before. Would play here everyday if I could.
Played with three very pleasant members on a blustery cool day. Great pace, and a beautiful and very well designed course. Lovely conditions overall......but
Positioned as the go-to "premium" course with prices to match. Why no turf mix to fix fairway divots (heavy outing play with a few too many hackers?) Why not screen bunker sand for rocks (not pebbles but rocks).
Overall tee to green experience is excellent but could (should?) be improved with little investment of time or money.
One of the best public courses in the state
Pinehills never disappoints.Both courses are two of the best in the region and I would recommend you play both if you can. the Jones course has a great layout with several elevation changes. It is also a fair course with decent sized landing areas from the tee and some larger greens when you will need to be pin hunting to have a chance at birdie. .
We enjoyed the track and the people at the course. It was cart path only but me wife got a handicap placard so we stayed away from the valleys.
Can't lose at Pinehills
I was originally slated to play the Jones course but was told when I got there that I was set to play the Nicklaus course. As I said in the title, you can't lose when you play here. I prefer the Jones course because it plays more difficult to my style of game, but the course is in great shape already, probably in better shape now than more will see throughout the season. I can't recommend this place enough.
Course was in unbelievable shape for so early in the season. I booked another course for the same day at another course but GolfNow really messed up and the course never got that I booked so last minute thank god pine hills had an opening for only two of us.... course was great GolfNow not so good. They promised me some promotion codes but I still haven’t reiceved them
Best in Eastern Mass
This really is the apex of public golf on the east coast of Massachusetts
Best public course in the Boston area. Couldn’t believe the hot price deal ($40) for 3 in the afternoon. Had just enough time to finish 18. Every hole was top class.
Nice course, greens rolled nicely. Pace of play a little slow,no ranger. Really enjoyable and playable for all levels
The Jones @ PineHills is a great course: well designed, beautiful and extremely well maintained. The staff was great and the facilities matched the level of golf exxceljence
private course conditions
First time playing this course. . Conditions were top notch matching a private course. warmed up with complimentary balls on driving range then moved to chipping green and putting green. played from the white tees and course was difficult but fair.
