Originally established with a 9-hole course in 1964, Pine Hills Golf Club called in Sid Puddicombe twenty-five years later to expand this layout to an 18-hole track that now measures more than 6,500 yards from the back markers.
Holes are arranged as two returning nines, each of which plays to a par of 36, with fairways literally carved from dense woodland. Water hazards in the shape of small ponds also feature occasionally, most notably on the short par four 3rd, the par three 4th and the par four 15th.
Highlight holes include the par four 5th (which has another pond lurking to the right of the green) and the double doglegging par five 6th, where a small creek crosses the fairway halfway between tee and green.
On the back nine, both par threes at the 12th and 16th present good birdie opportunities, unless you over hit your tee shot – a little lake lurks behind the green on the former and a large bunker sits in wait behind the putting surface on the latter so it’s better to be short than long on these holes.
