Woodlands of Van Buren, The -- League Player
Review by: Jim It is always in nice shape, but it really isn't that long. It is a fun course to play but not a top course in my opinion. It is a little pricey for what you get.

Pine Grove Country Club -- a hidden gem
Review by: jim olds This course is a great blend of old and new, and calls for skilled shotmaking throughout the round. Originally opened around the turn of the century, the older holes are generally narrow, lined with huge pines, and have small, but accessible greens. The newer holes climb Iron Mountain, (take a cart!) and are defined in large part by elevation changes which require a 2-3 club adjustment. These greens are much larger, but more difficult to read and putt due to the mountain topography. All of the par 5's are reachable for the stronger golfers, but three of them are dog-legs which swallow errant drives...grip it and rip it at your own risk. This is a nice course; we play it every summer and have been made to feel very welcome as visitors. The members built a new club house 3 years ago after vandals burned the old one. Nice locker room, bar, dining area and pro shop. I would rate this course at 3 1/2 stars and with only slightly better maintenance and grooming the rating would go to a 4. You'll be pleasantly surprised if you try this course.
