Rainy day turned Nice!!

Had 8 guys...4 backed out due to the weather forecast. We got lots of rain on the first 3 holes. Went off the course to leave and it brightened up. Back out to get drizzled on a couple times, but we finished it!!! Great course, as always. No brown spots anywhere even though we've had a drought! Beautiful fairways, tees and greens. Buddy got a hole in one on 11!!! Made our day!!! We'll be back...to golf and to see the plaque!!! Great course!!!

Pace of play was very slow, could encourage groups to allow faster groups to play through or enforce pace etiquette more.

Overall great course and staff

Poor t-off management

Today this course had very poor management on t-off waited far to long on each t-off block .had 4 groups of 4 waiting at each hole we were 45 min behind schedule on 18 holes . Think maybe space out the t-off time a little better

Great course!

Great course that will test all your clubs. The course was in great shape considering the drought we’ve had recently which is a testament to the grounds staff - great job! The round was a bit slow, but more so because the group in front was terribly slow with full holes ahead of them. True greens made sure you played each hole to the finish, if you wanted to score well. I’ll be back!

Bad experience

Was told our pace of play was not good enough when we had groups ahead of us that we were waiting on... Group behind us had told the person running the carts/time, that they were having to wait on us when this was not our fault. Our tee off time was scheduled and we showed up 25mins before tee off but they were having issues with the payment for lots of players which lead to a bunch up of groups. Not our fault... anyways was a bad experience and didn’t enjoy the rest of our round which was holes 11-18.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to post. I will talk to our starting staff, they should never make you feel pressured even if they are trying to keep up the pace of play whihc has been slower than average this year with the amount of play and a lot of newer players that are on the course. We always do our best to provide great service even while we are stressed getting things running smoothly on a daily basis. I hope you come back and see us again and please feel free to email me to discuss further if you wish. generalmanager@pineknotgolf.com

Great day to golf

Weather was excellent, greens were in superb shape. Fairways looked and played great. Our group enjoyed the day. We had a slow group ahead of us which kept the pace slow all round. Unfortunate but it happens.

Wonderful Course

This course is one of those courses you play and know they take very good care of it. If you ever get the chance to play it do it you wont regret it. I have personally played this course twice and cant wait to go back again. Hospitality is also top notch.

Nice track

Greens were fast, weather was hot and the beer was cold. My only complaint is that you really need to pay attention to the GPS carts. If you go 1 foot into an area that you’re not supposed to( ie a naturalized area that looks like any other area) the cart immediately shuts down the power. So when you attempt to correct and move the cart, you are forced to do so in front of the group behind you at a snails pace. I’m pretty sure the 4some behind us thought we were mocking them when in reality, we were literally powerless!

Thank you for the review, GPS is definitely a touchy thing especially as we establish new naturalized areas. So we appreciate your view on this and we work every day to tweak and adjust it. We hope you come back and enjoy Pine Knot again
