Charleston Pines

Great course for the value. Rough was thick cut and hard to fine balls but it was still a great day

Dissapointing

I've played Lima plenty over the years. The state of disrepair was very dissapointing. Sure, a few wet spots are par for any course thus spring, but why aren't the dry fairways mowed? Often didn't know if I was in the fairway or the rough, called it fluff. The greens were dry, bouncy, unreceptive, shaggy and needed to be swept/cleared if spring debris. Cart paths a me day my cart need work too.

On the plus side no one was around except a 6 some ahead of us on a beautiful Friday afternoon, easy to bounce around.

First Time Playing

Nice value.

Played Charleston Pines. Course was in nice shape. Greens and fairways were well maintained. Same for the bunkers. Layout could be more interesting as the couse has a few too many dead straight par fours. Overall though-nice. We played the day before Labor Day- the couse was a ghost town-almost no on on the course so pace of play was excellent. For $25 on Golfnow it’s a good deal.

Its not Rough.

I have been playing this layout for a long time. Spacious fairways, a moderately challenging layout, and superb greens always makes Charleston a Fun play.
The absence of any real rough makes finding and playing errant shots very easy. Which picks up pace of play, I understand. But an Honest rough with tighter fairways this course could be a Bear.
Either way, a short drive from Rochester, this is still a Gem. Look for discounted times, Retail is a bit stiff.
You can also play Island Oaks at the same facility. A tighter course with more terrain. You may spend a few buck more, but a great place for 36.

First time playing Charleston Pines

Grabbed a great deal on Golf Now for Charleston Pines in Lima, NY. First time playing here and the course did not disappoint. Very well maintained. Greens were faster than we were use to but very fair. Holes were not too difficult and we were glad we got a cart. Distance between some holes would be tough for walking unless you're young and in good shape. Overall: Loved this course. Will be back for sure. Two thumbs up!

Charlston Golf Course, Lima , NY

Got to course 5 minutes prior to T time, signed in, grabbed our clubs and were off !! Greens were in very good shape and some what fast. Fairways were cut to a good length and no one lost their ball on a good shot. (Hate losing ball on fairways that are not cut enough ). Wish the snack bar near 10th hole had been open for a hot dog and drink, seeings how we teed off at noon, but that was ok.
Had great time and the price of $18 for 18 holes w/cart can't be beat !!

Hidden Gem

Great course, didn't wait on the tee box once the entire round, pace of play was great!

We payed $20 for 18 with a cart, it was the best deal on any course this summer on the golfnow app.

I will be back 4-5 times a year moving forward even though I am a member at 2 other courses, it worth it!

Great greens.

These greens at Charleston pines are not undulating but very true and fast. A medium difficulty and yardage makes it very playable for most players.
The Island oaks side is more peaks and valleys. A more difficult layout, the greens are true just not as fast. A worthy test if either are your choice.

Relaxing round of golf

Some days you just want a nice fair course to play. This is it!! Great greens but not crazy frustrating greens. Course in nice shape. Not too crowded. Don't loose many balls. Shooting for pars even if you miss fairway since rough is not crazy and you can scramble to recover.

Course

This isn't Oak Hill or something like that, but the course was in great condition for the wild weather we've had in early 2017. The people running and maintaining this course really know what they are doing.
