I'm excited to hear how Pine Lakes looks and plays now that it is open again. I hope they kept the general characteristics.... My home course was also designed by Robert White (1929) as was Pine Lakes... I never get tired of playing my home course... It seems to play differently everyday... never boring!

Did you read the article in the Sun News that just hours before it opened a pick-up truck did doughnuts on a section of one of the fairways.Article also said none of the booked golfers cancelled and by noon they had something like 110 paid rounds.By the way did I mention to you that I played Brick Landing about a week ago.Interesting course that needs a little more t.l.c. Great layout on the finishing hole with Intra coastal Waterway to the right and a big clubhouse sitting on a large hill to the left.Pond protecting the front of the green.Tee is slightly elevated. Very pretty golf hole.Bag drop man says news owners plan to upgrade course.

Played Pine Lakes (The Granddaddy,) one of the original courses on the Grand Strand, just over $50 using the Myrtle Beach Golf Passport. Course in very good condition, didn't play that well but that was due to my poor ability with my wedges, greens very true when I got on them! My golfing partner who lives locally said it was worth paying a little extra for. Would recommend trying the course, I am told the starter in days gone by used to give players a bowl of soup before they drove off in winter months, bet that doesn't happen now.

It was not that long ago at Pine Lakes the bag drop guys wore Kilts and the Clam Chowder was at one of the holes on the course, I can't recall which one 11th maybe

They also had carts that resembled Rolls Royces'
