Great course worth the ddrive

Course was loaded but pace of play was very good for the situation. Greens were a little slow, but in general the course was in great shape for the amount of rain we have had. Only minuses were no GPS on carts ( which I don't mind, have my own), didn't have club/ball cleaners on cart either. All in all was great day.

A great surprise

It's quite a drive from where I live out to Pinecrest, and I didn't know anything about it. Priced at $28 on golfnow, I wasn't expecting much. Wrong. Pinecrestis a great track - not alot of straight out and back type holes. The tee boxes were some of the best I've seen anywhere, and the greens were in great shape. The starter drove over to the driving range to let us know that we could start early if we wanted since there was an ope time slot. There were some regulars out there early and they moved! The pace was great. It was well worth the 45 minute drive.

Very well kept course. Nothing breathtaking about any of the holes but it was maintained so well. Fairways to roughs to greens. Top notch. Greens were up to par with the best courses in the area. I probably wouldn’t play it again because the course is just a pretty standard layout but it was a pleasure to play because of how nicely maintained it was.

Nice and Slow

The course we very well groomed... unfortunately there wasn’t any rangers out to help speed the round up and keep folks moving along.

Granted I was a single this round, I had four elder gentleman playing in front of me, one man had a hard time walking.... this group, who was talking approximately 13 min per hole, caught up to a foursome in front of them that were taking even longer. My front 9 ended approximately 2:45 min later while I was allowed to play through two precious foursomes (thank you)

When I made the turn, I was fully expecting for some of the foursomes to conclude, and I pulled up on the 10th to a foursome just heading out to the fairway, same group in front of me previously. I decided to just pull into the parking lot after that, even though I paid for 18.

Best Value In The Area

This is a park district facility in Huntley, IL. The management of Pinecrest has recently been taken over by Kemper Sports. The maintenance is top notch, the golf and hospitality staff are excellent, and the course layout and tee options allow for a challenging or fun round. Green fees are extremely reasonable for a course of this caliber.

Great value and steady pace for a Saturday

Played this course a while ago and was surprised to find how well the course played -- greens were fast and smooth , fairway was well maintained and the rough was just long enough. Course has enough sand , trees and water to challenge but not overly tough.
It's worth checking out - I plan to play here again.

Asked to leave course!

Played here yesterday and after 17 was asked to leave the course. They accused us of playing extra holes and being there for 5.5. hours. when we tried to explain that they were mistaken and we had just been there 4.25 hrs they would not listen and told us we had to leave. This is not the first time I have had issues there. During the week they have leagues and participants are loud, rude, and unruly. Also if you don't tee off by 1p.m. the course is over run with high school students. Which in itself isn't an issue but does often interrupt play. I will not play this course again. And would recommend you don't unless your will to put up with being thrown out.

Fun Fall round

For a late Fall round of golf we enjoyed our time here. Condition of the course was as expected. The sand traps were much better than average for this area and similar courses. The gas carts were a bit rough but maybe that was from the cooler temps.
