Pine Tree Golf Club

Boynton Beach, FL Private

Overview

Pine Tree might have been one of Dick Wilson's most intellectual designs. At other places like NCR and Coldstream in Ohio, or Deepdale and Meadow Brook in New York, he had beautiful, uncompromised land to work on with mature trees and gentle movements. Pine Tree was vacant of nearly any defining feature other than flat Florida scrub, and everything there had to be first imagined, then built. The holes circle the site in coupled pairs, touching numberous lakes and canals. Wilson's bunkers, over 120 of them, their depth and zagged edges recently restored by Ron Forse and Jim Nagle, set up play, defending prime fairway positions and forcing acute aerial approaches into deep, strongly defended greens. Playing Pine Tree is equal parts visual treat and tactical exam.
