    Pinecroft Golf Plantation

    "Charming course overlooking the lake"

    I played the front nine twice at twilight during my multi-week stay near crystal Lake. It is a very pleasant setting overlooking the lake and very quiet, meandering through the trees. Some holes are pretty tricky, like the par-5 3rd hole, and others are quite narrow while there are some that are more wide open. I think it's especially good for beginners because the forward tee is only 4,300 yards, which is why we came the second time. The shaping of the land is very cool with rolling humps and bumps. If they could get the turf a little tighter so the ground game can be used a little more, this place would be exceptional. The greens however are quite nice. I prefer Champion Hill over Pinecroft but like Pinecroft more than Crystal Lake GC. more »
