Pine View Golf Club, The Hemlock Course, opened for play in 1979. The course was designed by Ed Reuss.
Pine View Golf Club, The Spruce Course, opened for play in 1969. The course was designed by Ed Powell.
Both courses are always in excellent condition with watered fairways and excellent greens. Both courses are challenging, yet enjoyable to play.
The Hemlock Course is probably the most popular of the two courses. It is tree lined and gently rolling. It is important to keep the ball in the fairway. The greens are large and the breaks are subtle, so you must be careful with your putting. If you hit it long and keep it in play, you should be able to score on this track. Hemlock is a favorite of the seniors and women because most of the greens are reachable in regulation. It's signature hole is #18, a par 3 that requires you to carry the river and a pond. If you really want to challenge yourself, play #18 from the back tee. It's a great par 3. The Hemlock Course is fun to play, if you hit it in the fairways, knock it on the greens, and two-putt regularly, you'll enjoy it. The Hemlock Course plays to 6409 yards from the tips and a par-72.
The Spruce Course holds its own against any golfer! You start out with a 440 yard par 4, Then proceed to #2, a 202 yard par 3. The front is long and strong. The back starts out tight with water, then progresses to long and strong. Number 10 begins "Alligator Alley" where you'll deal with rivers and ponds. It's signature hole is #13, a dogleg right that requires a tee shot over the river, the second shot will require a carry over a large pond in front of the green. All you have to do is hit it straight. There are also two par 5's over 600 yards. If you want a real test of golf, the Spruce Course is the one you want! The Spruce Course measures 6727 yards from the back tees and plays to a par-72.

Cow-pasture pool at it's best. It's a shame when the course's best defense is the course superintendent inability to groom a course. Greens look like they've been aerated with a ball-peen hammer. Course hasn't been mowed in what looks like a week.
