“Not for the weekend duffer...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Played here during vacation. My game was no match for the first four holes - challenging doesn't begin to explain. After getting to the 5th hole. & beyond I held my own but the score card was already a mess. Very fair layout but you need to be a long hitter to get a good score from white tees.
Very quaint little pro shop. Very helpful lady was on duty the day we played.
Would play here again but need more time on driving range first.
Recommend the course!!

“Superb Layout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

Pine Forest is a nice hidden gem in Summerville. The course itself plays tough, with lots of water, deep rough and contouring fairways. Finding a flat lie can sometimes be tricky. The greens were in fantastic shape but not overly quick, and balls rolled true.

The course layout is superb. This is a course that demands accuracy off the tee, and it you don’t find the fairway you can find yourself in trouble quickly. Nothing about this layout is generic at all, with each hole having its own personality. I especially enjoyed “little augusta”, #12, a difficult short par 4 with water on all sides. Another feature that I really enjoyed was the existence of grass bunkers on some holes. This is something I had not experienced before, and it was interesting to play out of them for the first time.

The clubhouse has a nice bar/restaurant and the food for lunch was good. Staff was friendly as well. The only knock I can come up with was the cart paths are in terrible shape. I typically walk but this round took a cart with someone who is less mobile. The course was playing cart part only, and there were way too many places were the pine tree roots are upending the asphalt, creating huge “speed bumps” where we literally had to bring the cart to a complete stop before proceeding over, knocking around our clubs and beverages.

Overall I give Pine Forest an A-. A challenging yet playable course with an interesting layout and friendly staff.
