Lovely setting - good condition

Greens are a nice speed - a little quick

Holes (on green) were freshly cut with clean edges

Sand looks great- bunkers well trimmed on edges ( I didn't get to try them)

A little breezy but it didn't seem to be much of a factor with the enclosed fairways

Overall an excellent golf experience

Would come back to play and would recommend to anyone

Cut out of the forest and laid out on hilly terrain, Pine Hills offers a great variety of holes, many of them very secluded and supremely peaceful. Several of the holes are truly memorable. Because of a few blind shots and deceptive slopes and elevation changes, expect to have to play the course a couple of times before you begin to shoot as low as you are capable of. This fine course is probably under-rated because it is really out of the way for most people.

A great layout that makes the round fun but challenges you to make some good shots. With five sets of tees and great course management this track has everything for every golfer. It has some elevation changes but is not too hard to walk if you feel like the exercise.

The design of the course suits many types of golfers and keeps things honest with little subtleties like bunker placement and fairway width.

Nestled in the middle of forest there can be bugs but also quiet. It is a serene setting that gives golfers zen feeling during your round.

The drive west is well worth the trip.

A really fine course off the beaten track. The small town of Rocky Mountain House deserves credit for being home to this course and supporting it well over the many years it has been in operation.

Elevation changes, rolling fairways, scenic and unique holes typify this course. The large well-kept greens are pleasure to putt. Most are relatively flat, though there are some dramatic exceptions. Many holes are cut through forest so that one can neither see nor hear players on other holes. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Booked through GolfNow. Beautiful course just west of Rocky Mountain House in west-central Alberta. A little remote but well worth the drive. Well equipped club house with very friendly staff. Paired us up with another couple. Course is exceptional, beautifully maintained, with views from every angle. You could make a post card from every tee-box. We ran into some bad weather, a good old Alberta thunderstorm rolled in as we finished the front nine. Pace of play was excellent as we finished 9 holes in less than two hours and two of our group was walking. Pine Hills is one of the best courses I've played in Alberta and I would recommend it to anyone. We'll be back!
