Super Course

Course was in excellent condition today. With the exception of a few bad spots on maybe 2 or 3 greens, they were in super shape. Putts rolled true with no bouncing balls along the way. The fairways were pretty good, but a few had some worn down areas where the lies were really tight, but not a problem.
My brother and I had an 11 a.m. tee time and wanted to get lunch at the course after as they have an excellent menu and very nice staff. Unfortunately, the restaurant is open from only 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. on the weekdays. We ended up eating at Wendy's down the road.

Decent course for the money

The course is laid out nicely, making you plan your approaches. This area of NC has been dry for weeks, so the fairways were a bit hard and crunchy. Some of the greens were still under repair but most were good. I had early tee times so the course was not yet crowded and I went right out. The staff were very friendly.

Lost greens

Ok, so it was a sloppy day at The Pines but that is what winter golf is in this part of the country. However, The Pines have always had beautiful, excellently manicured greens but not today! Every single green had major damage and it did not appear as though they were addressing the issue. Really sad because this used to be a treat of a course to go play from Great Bridge.

The Pines of Elizabeth City

Still like playing the course. It is a challenging layout. But it doesn't seem like course maintenance is being done as well under the new YMCA management. Greens are going away and during a previous visit we had to bypass two greens because there was so much goose s___ you couldn't putt and this was mid morning. Bistro is still pretty good, but changes are happening there too. Liquor stock has recently been removed. Luckily the staff at the Pines remain friendly and helpful.

Not a pushover

Fun course that looks like it has no teeth. Don’t be fooled , this track has elevated greens that require landing skills if you’re going to score. Well worth the drive from the Outer Banks to get a good challenge at an affordable price.
