Lovely place to play. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Very reasonable rates and even if you don't have a tee time, they'll get you on. Beautiful layout and scenic overlooks in the hills. The course needed lots of work though on both the greens and fairways. Ask for an extra sand bottle and help fill in the divots.

Pine Forest is one of my favorite golf courses ever, and without a doubt the most scenic, winding its way through the pines and ravines of Tahitian Village. Although a relatively short course, club selection, accuracy and course management are a MUST here as nearly all the holes have out of bounds on both sides of the fairways. And the... More

What a great course. Staff was very friendly and gave us a "cheat sheet" on how to play the course. The par 3's had great elevation changes, the Cliff hole was interesting, Saw several deer on the course. This is definitely not a course you want to walk, a cart is a necessity. Greens Fee was only $15 with a... More

Played last weekend, I was impressed by how well groomed the greens and fairways are, lots of elevation and challenging small greens, all said easy puts to be made, the par 3's with high elevation change create a beautiful scene and you can impress yourself by hitting long distances with 2 clubs less than usual. Went there because of the... More

What a fun course to play. Lots of elevation change. Fairways and greens are the way to play this course. A gem tucked away in the Lost Pines forest. On site driving range and putting green also. Highly recommend visiting this course.

What a great surprise to find this jewel of a course. The layout is superb, and some of the views are breathtaking. Don't know how the architects carved a course out of there canyons. It was a good test for Hubby (a 5 hdcp), and the ladies tees were short enough for me to enjoy. The greens are undulating and... More

I played here before and was prepared for the poorly maintained greens, uneven tee boxes and overall lack of course maintenance. What I was not prepared for was to be sent out in the back of tournament and then for the yahoos taking reservations to funnel more people out in front of us at the turn. There were 3 groups... More

Hi, This course has great holes with lots of elevation change. Many of the holes require good golf to stay in the fairways. They used to allow walking, but now require cart rental - which is probably a good idea since some of the distances from green to next tee are a ways. Still, even though I'd rather walk, I... More

Long, interesting golf course along the Colorado River just south of Bastrop. Lots of hills, narrow fairways and gulleys. Kept in really good condition, worth a stop off of Hwy 71 at Tahitian Drive.

I sponsor tournament each October. This Oct was our 18th year at Pine Forest. Twenty-four to 30 of us drive up from Houston and play four rounds in three days. The staff is very helpful and flexible. Fees are reasonable - 4 rounds with cart, grand total $111.00. Course is challenging, particularly the greens. Some holes are very pretty.
