First time picking up a club in a few months and it felt good to be on the course again.  Played Pine Hills for the first time on a breezy Saturday afternoon.

Tees - Good

Fairways - Good

Rough - Very Good.

Bunkers - Some were filled with water and you could see some washout spots, but not too bad otherwise.

Greens - Good to very good.  Probably running around 8.5 to 9.  A few greens had a bad spot here or there but nothing to complain about.  Approach shots kicked up a good bit of sand and you could see (what I assume to be) remnants of punching from the somewhat recent past.

Cartpaths (always for you JW) - mostly good.  There are a few rough spots.

Other than hole 18 on the Palmetto, I think I like this course better.  Some interesting holes, especially the doglegs, mounding, etc.  

It's a solid value course and in good shape.

I'll try to upload some pics a bit later.

Thanks Pole.

Everything considered, I'd play Pine Hills over Palmetto 7 outta 10 times. The doglegs, moundings, and some green surrounds are MUCH more interesting-and, I think, a lot more fun.

But if it helps to keep more players heading to Palmetto (i.e., reducing PoP on Pine Hills), I'll gladly trash the place.

At Pine Hills it's nice to start on the front, where the easier holes are. 
Then on the back 9 the green complexes get more challenging.   
MW has been improved over the last 2 years with new greens + bunkers.

For me, it is the Palmetto. Like you i think that the 18th hole is a great finishing hole. Thanks for the report.

I havent played Pinehills yet.

Played Palmetto twice.

It was real nice the first time , but awful the second time. 

These golf course reports are helpful to those people trying to choose a well conditioned course  and are appreciated. 

Thanks for including a cart path conditions in your report also brother.

Thanks PK

Good report on Pine Hills David, hole 18 always gets me.  Good to read you are out playing again as well.

18 is a mother!
