6 reviews of The Pines Golf Club
I played this course! with a golfing party on 01/09/12 and we all agreed that it is the worst course we have ever had the misfortune to visit.
Even allowing for the poor summer weather it was an absolute shambles.
The majority of the fairways, if they can be called that, had not been cut and were more like marshes and swamps, where you had to precariously manouvere around the terrain or find yourself upto 12" deep in a watery bog.
The bunkers were not bunkers but craters, as they were totally devoid of sand and consisted only of rubble and rocks.
Suffice to say we will not be back and I would advise anyone not to book this course if they want an enjoyable round of golf
Played Fri 5th June, just after heavy showers. Work is being done
on the 2nd hole and they are also putting in some accomodation facilities. The course gets better and better as you go round - not
too long a course but there's enough trouble around to keep you on your toes. The 12th is an interesting hole on the side of a hill and
the 13th exposes the golfer to a testing wind but some lovely views of the surounding area compensate. Quite a few par 3's but they are
challenging.Well worth a visit. There's a warm welcome and the bacon rolls are spot on ! They are currently renewing all the changing facilities. PS: The Golf Club is now called THE DUMFRIESSHIRE.
First course to play in Scotland. I really liked it. The back 9 is a little different, but that added to the charm of the course. Truly enjoyed it.
Ive just played this course for the second time and i really love it. i agree that there are a lot of blind holes and dog legs and the first time i played it, it was a little tricky but having remembered most of the holes this time it makes it a really challenging course. the club house is really nice as are the rest of the facilities and the people are most friendly and welcoming. im looking forward to playing it next time im in the area which shouldnt be too long off
Superb! Beautiful course in immaculate condition. Some really challanging holes, particlularly on the front nine, yet several birdie opportunities also. All the greens are superb.
My only criticism, if any, would be the amount of blind holes and doglegs. Someone visiting for the first time may struggle, as apart from the par three's you always seem to be hitting blind. I havent tried the driving range but the putting green was great, the chipping area looked good and the club house was comfortable with friendly staff.
I doubt you will find a better course for 20 quid and it certainly beat's similairly priced courses i've played and it doesnt get packed. We tee'd off at 8am and it was 10.30 before we saw another person, and this was on a Saturday!
All in all a fantastic course.
Dont bother with the driving range. Small booths make you think your going to hit the wall's. Mats that move under your feet as you swing and tee's that are the wrong height for any club.
