About This Organizer

The Pines Golf Course is a 27 hole layout located on beautiful Fort Eustis. In addition to a great layout, carved out of a forest of mature pine trees, every golfer will enjoy breathtaking views of the Warwick River which is home to many species of wildlife.  Last year we finished a complete USGA Specification Greens’ Renovation on all 27 of our golf greens.  Our members can call and make a tee time via our automated system or just walk up and play.  If practice is what they are looking for The Pines boasts the largest all grass driving range in the region. Along with a driving range that is over 400 yards long we have a chipping green, a practice bunker and a putting green. Whether the customers wants to play, practice or come out and take a private golf lesson from one of our two our Class A PGA Golf Professionals, The Pines is the place to be.

 

Our Golf Course operates out of a 13,030 square foot club house that opened in January of 2008.  This club house has a full line golf shop, men’s and women’s locker room facilities complete with full lockers, showers and restrooms, administrative offices as well as Themed Snack Bar and Bar by the name of Reggie’s.  We offer daily lunch including homemade lunch specials and can cater events of small and medium size in our beautiful dining area or on the large comfortable back porch.

 

The golf shop carries a fantastic line of name brand golf equipment, golf shoes, golf apparel and miscellaneous accessories. Catalogs are available for those desiring to special order equipment from almost any manufacturer.  Club repair is available, along with handicap services, locker rental, club rental, pull cart rental and golf carts.
