Front nine Blues

Front nine extremely slow but they left after nine so that was a blessing. I like this course alot , the weather was great and good course conditions. The course is fun to play, with it's variety of holes your not looking at driver on most holes.

Local jewel

At 5500 yds from the whites this course is short enough for average golfers especially seniors to play and enjoy plenty of opportunities for par or better. In fairly good shape for a local muni; greens slowish but true. Very picturesque. I played with two senior women and we finished in 3.5 hrs. Course staff was friendly and civid-safety compliant.

Paid more through this App

The course was great. When I arrived it turned out I paid more through military T times than there poster rates. I assumed I would be getting a better deal through this app but instead paid more.

Great value

Fun course for sure and a great value for the price. We had a cart but I think it's walkable. Pace of play was quick. A few short holes but they made up for it with tough pin placement. Greens were very good today. I'll be back.

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.
