Pine Hill Offers Sneak Preview

Golf in the Garden State continues to flourish with the opening of new high-end public courses. The latest facility, Pine Hill Golf Club, was open for limited play last October through December.

Located in Pine Hill, New Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia, the par-70, Tom Fazio-designed track covers most of a 360-acre parcel. Some of the property involves the highest elevations found in southern New Jersey. Though the layout measures a testy 6,969 yards from the tips, golfers of all levels can enjoy playing here because each hole has four sets of tees.

Play is limited to 10 spots per week for non-members, and tee times must be made in advance. Greens fees for the 2000 season are $125, but prices are expected to increase when the club officially opens this spring. To book a reservation, call 856/435-3100.
