a relic left over from simpler times... – Pine Forest Country Club is a essentially a beautiful golf course with an elaborate clubhouse run by aging relics left over from a time when americana opulence was at it's peak. Though a vast majority of it's members are young business professionals the staff and board members tend to fear change with a violent fervor. For a time it looked as though the club was ready for a much needed facelift. The changes were apparent everywhere. A new chef and menu brought a flare to the bland dining options, little tweaks in the facade of the club began popping up everywhere. Updated decor and even plans for a new pool with a lazy river! But alas, it was not meant to be. This month brought a new club manager (who looks and sounds as if he worked in the kitchen or mowed the course) The new menu and chef are gone. The winds of change have died down and all that is left is a huge pit where the new pool was supposed to be. On a positive note, the pool will probably be ready just in time for winter! My advice, play a round of golf here and leave. The services offered to members are boring and outdated. The staff is unfriendly and pushy. The upper management is basically a circus. Save your money and take your business elsewhere.
Among the fierce competition for top rankings of Houston's private clubs, Pine Forest can hold its head high. – The Course
Although it lacks the high profile that some other local clubs enjoy, Pine Forest has developed a stellar reputation since moving to its current location 25 years ago.
Several factors helped the club rank among the top 10 in a 1999 local golf survey. Highlights of the club include its renowned Bermuda greens (recently judged the area's best) and the layout of water hazards, which come into play on 21 of the 27 holes.
Another advantage of Pine Forest is its teaching staff, led by pro Charlie Epps. He is also known as the "Golf Doctor" and gives lessons to several PGA Tour professionals.
