Always Perfect on 4th of July Morning

Great tradition of early morning golf at The Pines on the day of the 4th. Staff was great and very ready early in the AM for our tee time. We played as a foursome w/ scores ranging from 41 to 55 in 2 hours on the button.
Love the fact you can spray the ball and not lose it and still have a shot at the green to save your round. Greens were in good shape, not too many ball marks early in the AM as I usually try to fix 3 per green and most times couldn't find that many to fix.
Mike, Zach and staff are so very friendly and helpful and seem like they genuinely want yo to be there. That is a good feeling to get from a business. We'll keep coming back and great deal booked on GolfNow.

The Pines

I play here regularly and most times it is great fun. It is not to difficult and is well maintained.
My round today was not great as I was caught behind a young man who was visiting the course with a younger sister who was From out of town.
They were the slowest playing twosome I have ever seen.
They did not practice golf etiquette and would not let me plat through even when at least 2 holes were open in front of them.
Overall, The Pines is a fun course to play, is a great value with very friendly and professional staff.
I will play there many times again.

Very Pleasant

Shorter course but played longer. Wet due to rains but staff did a nice job setting up ropes to divert carts away from soggy areas. Can be tight but scoring opportunities there too.
Very pleasant staff. Large range.

Nice little course

I enjoyed playing this course today despite a slow foursome holding up play for everyone behind. I finally got to go around them by skipping a #11 and playing it later. Course conditions were fine with nice fairways and greens. The course plays fairly short, but holes are interesting, especially on the back nine. A few holes would have played better with a 3 wood off the tee as you can easily hit it through the doglegs and end up in the rough. I will bring some friends with me next time.

What a day!

6:32am tee time on 4th of July to beat the heat and get in a quick 9 holes. What a perfect weather day, 78 degrees when we finished and this course has plenty of trees to find shade if needed.
Always love the back and forth layout here for a guy who sprays the ball off the tee, you always have a shot and a chance to get the ball back into play. Course has in great shape still even with all the heat we've had. Kudos to the superintendent and their team, greens were rolling true and for the other 3 players in my group, very fast.
You need to play here once or twice to figure out the layout of holes and aiming point of tee shots but once you get it figured out its fun to cut corners and aim for greens. Front is a bit easier and more wide open then the back and no water comes into play on the front. Can't wait to go back.

Great course for the money

Course was in great condition. This course suits beginner to intermediate players. Water only comes into play on two holes. Losing balls is not concerning here, which is great.

After work course

This course is a decent course in town. Weekday evenings are packed with leagues of hackers so the pace is terribly slow, expect to wait at almost every hole/shot. I don't even attempt to play here after work anymore. Not bad if you can get in 9 earlier in the day or even sometimes on the weekends. Very playable layout, not terribly challenging. Greens aren't the fastest or most undulating but are maintained relatively well. Staff is hit or miss, some guys are pretty laid back and others take their job way too seriously. Practice Range is below par, nothing special. I only play here if there's an awesome deal on golfnow, I'd never pay full price for this course all things considered.

Pass it up...

This was my second time playing here. The last time was about three years ago. Both times I played it because it was a good deal. Both times the pace of play was extremely slow. This isn't the type of course that should be played at 4.5 hours a round. It's very, very short and could be played in around 3 hours easily. The problem is the caliber of golfer it attracts. Because it's not a great course, it attracts very poor golfers. I won't pretend to be any count, but anyone who is a 10 hdcp or better should look elsewhere.

Pros: A few unique holes. Cons: Poorly manicured tee boxes, odd layout, slow pace of play, below average skill level cliental (lots of people wasting time looking for balls),

Good Value

The pines is a great course for a good value. It is well taken care of and the staff is very accommodating. If you are looking for your high end country club type course, this is not it. A working person's course with a good beverage selection and an excellent golf outing set up for the gang at work.

Such a nice course.

Not the most challenging but very nicely maintained. Surprisingly nice considering the dry hot weather thats been around the last few weeks. Definitely recommend to play. Greens are in great shape, as are the fairways and tee boxes. Gas carts are little old and noisy, could probably be upgraded, but they get the job done. Overall, I give it an B+.
