Course is in great shape

I have been playing The Pines for the last few years. Like stated before in past reviews the YMCA of Hampton Roads Va has been running the course and they have done a great job.

The recent wet weather we had the last week or so has been great for the entire course.

Not to mention they have been able to keep up with the demands of a course through the Pandemic we have been experiencing. Everyone from the Pro Shop to the Grounds Crew has done an amazing job. Can't say enough.

Tough conditions

Considering the amount of rain we have had, the course wasn't as bad as it could have been. The greens were in very decent condition. There were some really wet and muddy spots and my plugged on multiple shots. All in all a tough day on the links is still better than a great day at work.

Great band for your buck

Course is in great shape, best bang for your buck by far. It is challenging but not frustratingly difficult. I would definitely recommend to friends and will continue to come back as much as possible. Well worth the drive from Chesapeake for me!

Not bad for the price

The carts are in great shape. Tee boxes were OK. Fairways are brown for the winter but not in too bad of shape. Greens needed a bit more TLC. They were fast but there were a few bad spots here and there. Also, it would be really nice if folks would repair their divots and not throw their cigarette buts in the sand traps. All in all I would recommend this course.

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.
