Great Play

Played this course for the first time and it makes it to the top of my public course experience in MA. Great course conditions, pace of play was very tolerable, and the greens were running at about an 7.5-8 speed and very true. The layout if fun to play and is pretty open for the most part. I do not recall any blind tee shots/fairway lies. Will definitely be playing this course again.

Pine Hills Nicklaus Course is Great

Had a great time at the Nicklaus Course at Pine Hills in Plymouth, Ma. today. The course is challenging without being too difficult. It is very well maintained with a helpful, friendly staff.

Slow greens

The course condition was great but the speed of the greens were very slow. I was very surprised to see the greens that slow.

Worth The Drive

The Nicklaus Course was absolutely incredible and there wasn't a blade of grass out of place. The only negative was that we had to play behind a twosome that thought they were better than they were (waiting for the green to clear from 260 away and then hitting it 10 yards). I wished the marshalls did more about this but the course was jammed that day. All that said, I would not hesitate to come back.

Pinehills gets it

I always leave Pinehills happy. The people here understand how to operate and maintain a golf course. The tee times are perfectly spaced for a consistent pace of play. You almost never wait on tee boxes.

What makes Pinehills a 5-star golf course is the practice facility and clubhouse. With a double ended range, 4 practice greens and a clubhouse with a "private" feel, you could really spend a whole day here working every aspect of your game and relaxing at East Bay Grille. This continues to be one of the best all-around public golf venues in the south shore.

As usual, an awesome experience

There is no doubt that this and the Jones course are two of the best public courses in the state if not in all of New England. The course is always in great shape, the staff if phenomenal and the practice area is top notch. If you’re coming to the Boston area and can only play one course make it a Pinehills course.

Hot Day

Brutally hot, with a heat index in the triple digits, but a fairly steady breeze helped with that. The Nicklaus course is easier off the tee than the Jones, but the challenge is all in the approach shots. Greens weren't slow nor fast, and they rolled well. Fairways and tees were also in good shape. The practice facility is unmatched, but I couldn't take full advantage because of the hot temperatures.

Glad I got a hot deal price

Overall was good. Range, staff and course layout were very good, however the greens were blotchy and kinda inconsistent and the bunkers were more dirt than sand. Expectations were high going in and didn't quite live up to the hype. Nice course but not $105 nice. Enjoyed the experience, but not in any hurry to go back.

Mother's Day is the best day to play

I have always found the Nicklaus course to be the easier of the 2 courses at Pinehills. It's much more forgiving off the tee, but you need to hit good iron shots to the greens. The greens rolled well, and the pace was very good at 3:56 for 18 holes with a start time at 1:30 on a Sunday. But it being Mother's Day probably helped with that. As always, I get there with plenty of time before my tee time to take full advantage of the excellent practice facilities.
