When Robert White was asked to design a course that would complement the famed Ocean Forest Hotel, he did just that. Unfortunately, the monumental hotel no longer stands but the classic course that first opened in 1929 remains. Despite renovations, the presence of the 1920s classic design is a consistent reminder of golf as it was in the old days and speaks volumes of its southern roots. Golfers from around the world frequent this golf course year after year thus making the Pine Lakes International Country Club a staple presence along the Grand Strand. Despite newer, more modern competitors, Pine Lakes continues to remind golfers that modern stylization is not a necessity in order to enjoy the game to its fullest. When Craig Schreiner took charge of the redesign of the course, he let his love of the game guide him so that the originality of the course would remain a consistent presence. Despite added architectural influence, it merely serves as a complement to the historic ingenuity of the original designer rather than overshadowing it. Pine Lakes boasts a Scottish feel and the once 16-hole course now houses two new, additional holes on the north end in order to entertain the fresh redesign of the course entrance. The nine holes originally created in the 1920s have remained almost entirely the same as they were before. The introduction of SeaDwarf Paspalum grass brings with it a sense of ingenuity because this type of grass requires less irrigation and is easier to maintain.
