Pine Crest Golf Club -- A good, tough course
Review by: Matt H I've probalbly played this course 50 times or more. My parents house is three block from this course. It is a tough 18 hole course. The fairways are fairly narrow, well guarded by strategically placed bunkers as are most of the greens and very well treed. Water abounds on this course and is in play on 1, 2?, 3, 6, 7?, 8, 9, 11?, 12, 13, 17, & 18. The signature hole listed in the description sounds more like the 9th. The 18th calls for short drive/lay up onto a tongue of fairway surounded on three sides by water. I've never seen anyone carry the water, though I'm sure it can be done. I beleive it is 300+ to do it and a narrow target. The club has been taken by new management in the past couple years. They have put alot of money into making the course alot nicer. Many of the bunkers, particularly the fairway bunkers, were not very playable owing to poor sand texture (gravelly) but that is changing the last few times I've played here. The clubhouse is nice with a large dining room and full svc bar, locker rooms for members, a nice driving range and huge putting green. Marshalls enforce ready play and keep things moving and are generally very good guys. Overall a good golfing experience, I shoot in the high 80's, low 90's. this course is somewhat forgiving but can be a very harsh mistress indeed.
