The Golf Course
A great course design, The Pines winds its way through the Albemarle pine thickets and features small elevated greens, wide fairways and large chipping areas. The golf course and practice facilities have been completely renovated and feature plush bermuda fairways and excellent A1/A4 Bentgrass greens, re-built to USGA specifications. Re-designed in 2004 by Tom Clark, of Ault and Clark Associates, the championship course draws rave reviews from members and guests for its excellent condition and a fun, challenging layout.
At 7,000 yards from the championship tees, The Pines challenges players to hit quality golf shots and recover around the greens when they miss. Fun for golfer's of all levels, the course offers the player many opportunities to make birdies as well as a number of challenging holes where par is a great score. The course features 4 sets of tees for players of different skills. Due to many second shots that play slightly uphill to an elevated green, The Pines generally plays slightly longer than it measures.
