    The greens were a nice size but a bit slow. Probably due more to the weather conditions than anything else. I had a couple of interesting scores as I had two very long putts, rolled onto the fringe, but made the putts coming back. One putts!
    Yardages were well marked and accurate. Some wooden areas to be leery of but for the most part the fairways are ample width and areas of trouble are easy to identify.
    The ground is often soft and careless carters have left some ruts throughout the course.
    The tees for the par 3s have normal scuffs. Four sets of tee boxes to choose from with the tips reaching almost 6300 yards. Most views from par 3s are spectacular.
    Many bunkers have unusual shapes and sizing and location often deceives the mind on distances.
    Hole #2 (par 3) with its angled pond is a wonderful hole to play. Many holes identify this course as a Stanley Thompson design.
    Hole #9 does end in an odd location away from the clubhouse.
    The Pines is a great track! We ran across a lot of maintenance staff throughout our round and we were very impressed by their effort.
    I'd love to play "The Pines" on a sunny day to enjoy the full beauty of the course.
    Stanley Thompson is known for positioning hazards and getting the most out of the landscape. I've always felt he starts out with the most spectacular views and builds around these locations.
    Take away the fog and I'm sure I would have enjoyed this course a lot more.
    Small treed areas are usually playable but heavier forested areas are rarely worth a look.
    All staff were a pleasure to deal with. On course I was offered lots of found balls and was often directed to my ball when I was observed searching.
    In the pro shop the staff was courteous and helpful.
    The clubhouse is simple yet functional. The pro shop is well-stocked with clothing and outerwear but I don't recall much in the way of golf equipment but such is the norm at a golf resort.
    I wish the fog was absent for many of my photos. It appears fog in Digby, Nova Scotia is a regular occurrence (at least for our stay).
