Spectacular course, top notch.

Best course in this area. Outside staff were polite, courteous, and quick to have you ready to golf. The pro shop staff were friendly as a normal part of their day, not as part of their job, I was treated like company, not a customer. The pre-golf amenities surpasses all other courses. Bunkers, large chipping and putting areas get you ready for your round. I recommend you play this course if you haven’t, you’ll want to go back.

Pine Hills

Was one of my favorites but too much building around course, relatively poor course conditions, and some really stupid pin placements made it a not vey good experience. The course is always packed so I guess it doesn't matter to other people.

Great

Excellent experience, from beginning to end. Course was beautiful, staff friendly. A few groups got bunched up during the round and there was a wait at times but we finished in 4 hours, so this was a great choice, I’ll be going to Pinehills a lot more this year.

Fantastic Choice..

Upon being directed to the range after check-in, walked out to find my bag already strapped to a cart and range balls all set up.. just wish I would have gotten there a touch sooner. Wonderful experience this was and the course conditions and layout were just perfect. Mostly wide open fairways but still a challenge, definitely will return when back in this area.. cant wait.

Great Shape

Despite having a rainy April in the Northeast the Nicklaus course was in great shape. Fairways, bunkers, and greens were better than we expected for this time of year. Usually play this course about 4 times a year and is the course I go to when guest are in town for a few rounds.

FIRST TIME, WONT BE THE LAST...

Starts at the BAG DROP...staff on hand to remove and return bag from cart...to check in...then to be directed to the range for included driving/putting/chipping/sand practice...to bottled water at the starter...then the course itself(NICKLAUS) was just right...played a different course earlier in the week, and had 7 of 9 holes plug on drivers...not so here...greens are quick and true...just full of class...even the men's locker room...will have to find time to enjoy it all the next time...well worth the trip from just about anywhere
