Cart Path Only

We were not advised of cart path only. Course was extremely wet with very little grass on the fairways. Our guest is in their 80’s and we would have cancelled if the course had informed GolfNow who could have alerted us

I just don't like this golf course

Positives: The holes are interesting and the greens were in good condition.

Negatives: Fairways have no grass. It hasn't rained in weeks and every ball hit in the fairway was covered with mud. Cart paths are in bad condition and you spend a lot of time driving between holes so it's hard to play in less than 4-1/2 hours. Many holes have houses too close and dense brush too close that turns moderately bad shots into penalties.

Great Day

Great day in Hilton Head. Pinecrest Golf course is a fun place to play and it is in great condition. Greens a little slow but ran very well once we got on to the speed. Definitely will be returning to play it again during our stay.

ok for the price

Really friendly proshop staff but ranger not so much. Had a foursome of myself and 3 new golfers. Starter has 2 twosomes behind us. Ranger catches us at 11 and says to pick up pace. Offered to let anyone play through but that wasn't an option for him?? Tried to skip a hole but caught foursome in front of us. Weird course lay out as well. Better deals for same $$ in HH.

Great time

Course was in very good shape fun course to play. Tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. Gives u a great chance to see the area as the course winds all thru pine crest. Look forward to playing it again.

Fun and Challenging

Great use of water , trees , and sand to test you even on the short holes . A few patches of greens and tee boxes are lost , but overall very nice for the price and weather ( temps in high 90’s ) . Nice secluded feel even though it plays in the middle of a neighborhood, making it extremely difficult to walk . Feels like a course on the island , but much better value

Definitely worth your time

Played the course on a Sunday afternoon. The fairways were dense and mostly weed free. The greens were a little slow and some had areas of fungus/disease, but most were in good shape. There are a lot of water hazards and some nice views. Would play again.

First time playing here

Booked an early time here at 7:32am... showed up and was greeted by staff and they were expecting me. Incredibly friendly and directional. The course itself was in above average condition. The layout was average but it was a great round. I would love to play here again.

Great Value Option

Good layout but a lot of greens need some help but for the price it is excellent value. Staff were nice,and friendly, course was pretty much empty on a Saturday afternoon. The cart guy was the best both on our arrival and leaving. I will play here again

Green conditions very poor

Unfortunately, the condition of the course (particularly the greens) was pretty poor. Had played this course 2 years ago and compared with conditions then, we were really disappointed. Port-a-potty on the course was pretty gross and when making the turn, there was no ready to eat food at clubhouse (at 11:45 am). Won’t be going back to this course in the foreseeable future.

Not the best course in the area

Have played here in past years to lukewarm reviews. Tried again this trip. The Pro Shop and staff were very accommodating. The greens look bad and are very bumpy. As a frequent golfer, the conditions of the greens are important, so it was disappointing. The holes are very well laid out and challenging. We got out early and enjoyed the day and the price was right. Check reviews before booking to look at recent reviews..

Unfortunately disappointed

Always enjoyed playing this course when we went to Hilton Head. Unfortunately greens were lost and not in even good shape. Took a friend for the first time and was embarrassed. Sorry guys. Hopefully you can get things fixed.

Going, going, gone........

This course has gone downhill fast and is now not playable. It seems as if they are just letting it go. No water, no fertilizer, no overseed. I suggest you play elsewhere for now. Greens are un-puttable.

Greens?

Have played this course many times but this last time the course was in the worst condition that we've ever seen. The greens, if you can call them greens, have some very severe problems. Not sure if a fungus or simply lack of proper maintenance but they were simply terrible.

Not sure if some of the other reviewers played the same course that we did as their reviews seem to be more optimistic fantasy than the reality of what we played on. Would suggest simply calling the putt in if it's within a club length. Putts simply hopped, skipped and jumped to the cup or vicinity of the cup.

If you've played Island West in the past several years, well, the greens here are headed in that same direction.

Simply put, the course, as it is today, is not worth the time or the money.

Oh, time to re-sod the tee boxes or issue hammers to pound your tees in with.
