Course Information For Pine Lakes

Pine Lakes Country Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is known as the "Granddaddy of them all!" Pine Lakes originally opened as the Ocean Forest Golf Club in 1927.

Designed by Scotland native Robert White as a 27-hole resort, Pine Lakes is also known as the "Home of Sports Illustrated." In 1954, a group of 67 executives from Time-Life, Inc. came to Myrtle Beach by train to play Pine Lakes and to plan a sports weekly. Sports Illustrated appeared on newsstands weeks after the meeting.

Pine Lakes golf course underwent a 20-month, multi-million dollar restoration project that transformed the course and clubhouse back to the status enjoyed in the earlier days by the Vanderbilt's and the Rockefeller's. Golf course architect Craig Schreiner, who preserved many of the historical golf corridors that made Pine Lakes famous throughout the years, led the restoration.

Loved this course, staff very efficient & friendly. Found the greens a bit slower than other couses we played this week , but they were in great shape

What can I say, this is perhaps the most liked course my guys like year over year. The course although recently upgraded reminds you of an old great course that you only hear about. I provides a challenge to all levels of golfers and the staff is probably the best on the Strand. A must play course.

I played Pine Lakes long before the renovation and enjoyed the course. Not anymore... par 4's are too long for my game from the #3 tees. The greens were lousy.

3 of us met this friend of mine and did we ever enjoy this newly design golf course

Some of the guys had played her years ago so we put Pine Lakes in to the rotation this year. It was an average track, particularly the back nine. The greens were on the slow side. Unfortunately, in a couple of years, I doubt I will remember this course.

Beautiful layout

Has the best greens I've putted on. New layout is super.

Very nice course

Course was beautiful and in very good condition. The only thing I didn't like was that they made a point to make you play holes in a 12-15 minute period. A course official would ride up to our group and not say anything and just write on a notebook. Made me uncomfortable but still a great course.

The greens are amazing! Loved the course! I recommend it for many reasons but you have to go just to see the greens.

Nice course

Fun layout, that was in great shape. The pace of play was perfect. We enjoyed our time there very much, and would visit again for sure.
