Three Nine hole courses all of which are great. Combine any two for a perfect 18 holes. Pro shop extensive. Grill at Pro Shop has some very good food. Highly recommend... More

This is a lovely course with the Pines, the Woods, and the Lakes. The course is fun, challenging, and affordable. The staff are very accommodating.

3 separate "nine's all featuring woods, marsh and lakes. Some spectacular holes. Sometimes you may have company - families of geese. This is NOT a course for beginners. Really appreciated the willingness of the ranger to refer me to a less busy "nine." Played 18 holes in just under 3 hours, starting at 7 AM. This place is SO much... More

Very pretty tight course, makes you actually slow down swing and get it right? Very well kept up. Little pricey.

The Pines is a beautiful 27 hole course ....Lakes, Woods & Marsh. The pro shop and staff are top notch. Grandview Lodge did it right!

My wife and I golfed here together and found the course to be in excellent shape. The greens rolled true, and the course was very challenging, but not punishing. Highly recommend to anyone. The staff (especially our starter Charlie) was extremely friendly!

Great course, in perfect shape. the Pines, and Deacon's Lodge are the best of the best. Though The Classic and The Preserve are right up there too. When at The Pines, ask for a lesson with Ben.

Well kept course - scenic - challenging as well. Nicely run and friendly staff. Kind of pricey and because it's part of a resort, it's just always so busy! We hate slow play, and with the amount of people on there, it can get borderline frustrating sometimes.
