PINE VALLEY GOLF CLUB

Today I had the pleasure to play my favorite course in the world Pine Valley Golf Club. This simply spectacular golf experience in my opinion cannot be matched anywhere in the world (which is why Pine Valley has been ranked #1 in the world so many times over the past 50 years)

I spend the day taking photos of every hole on this amazing course and over the next few days I will be providing pictures of each hole along with a narrative of how I play that particular hole. I plan to break this out into three days of six holes each day while I also cover the Coleman at Seminole over the next 4 days. I will also attempt to provide some insight into these two pristine courses that are almost opposites of each other in many ways, but both provide a challenge that will test your game in every facet.

below I have provided only two pictures, one of the great guys I had the pleasure to play with today, and the second of me and Chris. Chris is a part-time caddy at Pine Valley and was a pleasure to have assist us today.

Sorry for the delay but my 5am wake up call to fly to Florida tomorrow morning is preventing me from posting the first 6 holes of Pine Valley. I hope to have them for you tomorrow

Stay Tuned!!

  1. I think you need to write blog about your par on the 1st hole from the maintenance shed. Maybe I should tell it. The tee shot was off the planet right maybe 60 yards off the fairway. Randy was down by the maintenance shed. Basically had no shot in any direction, he was on a road and had forests of tall pines in all directions. Took out his 54 degree wedge saw some kind of gap in the trees. Hit the ball maybe 120 feet straight up in the air over the pines in to the fairway. Than pitched up from about 65 yards and had a down hill breaker from about 9 feet. The putt dropped and it was one of the most amazing Par, I ever saw on that hole.

  2. Randy-
    Yes, Pine Valley #1 is challenging. I remember that there is no other hole in the world where right left or long is death without it being in a hazard or out-of-bounds. I would recommend having all your friends play safe there for the front edge only unless they have a short iron approach (which is hard because the way the fairway narrows in the landing area I remember you have to thread it in to get it close from the tee).

    Pine Valley is an AMAZING Course and would be my #1 parkland course in the world. Royal County Down remains the best links course in the world; It gets the nod because I would rather play golf by the ocean rather than in a forest.
