Rating 74.4

Pine Hills Country Club sprawls cross 165 acres of Long Island's protected Pine Barrens. The golf course plays long at over 7,000 yards from the back tees but it is a playable and fair test. It is challenging as well with quite a bit of water and sand coming into play throughout. Towering, mature pines also line narrow fairways. One of the most difficult holes is the par-4 11th. This dogleg left is one of the many holes with water and it also features a green that is severely sloped from back to front. While the golf course is the main attraction, Pine Hills is also known for having the area's best public practice facility. The club boasts a driving range with target greens, a putting green with a 9-hole practice course, and a chipping green with a greenside sand trap.

Nice Fall Golf Day

The course is in good shape for late in the season. Tee boxes and fairways excellent. Worth a hot deal on golf now. Definitely one of the better courses on Longisland.

Nice course , great shape for this time of year. Pace of play -- a little slow. White tees were all up so course played short. Can't wait to play again.

Air rated greens

I felt we were mislead that we weren't told the greens had not only just been air rated but were not cut. The fairways were shorter than the greens and the rough also had not been cut in several days.
Maybe not enough staff?
I felt we were mislead, would never had played there if we knew the greens had been air rated, GN should have told us.
I would like a refund!

Sunrise tee time

Course is in great condition including bunkers which are often neglected at other courses. Had a 6:30 am tee time and zipped around in 3 hours and twenty minutes, love the course

Course has a forgiving layout

The course is right in front of you, if you can get out the box you can score here. Blue T’s keep you honest on this track. Heavy rain the day prior saw the course drain well although greens a little slow. Pine trees line the holes and gives an upstate “feel” , Pro Shop was friendly and club house very nice. It’s a nice course that won’t beat you up. Well worth a visit...

Great public course

I try to play here at least once a week. The course is in great shape from tee box to greens. It is challenging especially the back 9. Pace of play is usually good although a ranger would be a good investment. Staff is great. JC restaurant is a most visit after your round.

Great place

It’s hard to criticize such a good golf course. Fairways were a little long but I’m sure that is heat related. Greens were not fast but very true. As usual the traps were all raked and really easy to play out of. One of the real go to places in the Riverhead/Manorville area

Easily one of the top 10 Public courses on Long Island

No two holes are alike, each hole is special . Very few residences along the course. One of the best practice areas on Long Island, driving range, chipping area and putting green.

Fair course
JC afterwards was a treat with amazing food
