The Takeaway: Pine Hills is the type of course you are happy to play on a daily basis because of the comfortable routing and little fear of losing your golf ball. There is very little wow factor or eye candy to stimulate your senses, but is easily played by golfers of all skill levels. Pine Hills is the nicest private course in the area, but it still is a step below all four courses at the American Club as well as The Bull at Pinehurst Farms. Grade C

What to Expect: Pine Hills has been in its current location since 1928 and enjoys rolling terrain with tree lined fairways and small greens. The Golden Age layout is relatively short and with fairways often running parallel to each other there is little fear to swing away with your driver. With five par 3s on the property, the course plays to a par 71 with its biggest challenge being the smallish greens that put a premium on accuracy in a day and age when length is king. You'll find several players electing to walk the course though carts are available for those looking for a more leisurely approach. Conditioning is quite good throughout the course but not spectacular. It's proximity to the courses in Kohler make it a nice throw-in if playing in the area.
