The beautiful town of Summerville, located thirty minutes northwest of Charleston, SC, has a long history entertaining guests. Once the summer escape for coastal plantation owners seeking relief from the miasmas of summer, it was recognized internationally as one of the world’s best locations for treating lung ailments due to its dry, sandy environment and its piney scented, turpentine infused air. Today, Summerville is a tourist destination for its 700 homes and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and its annual Flower Festival, the largest arts and crafts festival in South Carolina.
The 1891 Pine Forest Inn in Summerville was one of the East Coast’s premier resorts, with one of America’s earliest golf clubs and world famous golf, horse-racing and hunting. Though dismantled in the 1950s, its sporting traditions live on today on the same site in Summerville’s Pine Forest Country Club. It offers an impressive selection of recreational activities that honor the memory of its predecessor. Golf Digest rates the Pine Forest 18-hole golf course with four stars, placing it in the top five percent of all golf courses in the country. Owned and operated by two PGA professionals, the semi-private Club includes a Pro Shop and golf instruction for all ages and hosts the annual Lowcountry Amateur Golf Tournament.
Nestled among the tall pines and professional landscaping are beautiful homes with custom designs and floor plans. Interwoven among the homes are green spaces, hiking and bike paths, and family-friendly streets and amenities that make Pine Forest Country Club a great place to come home to each day. Homes feature hardwood floors, granite counters in gourmet kitchens, tiled baths and a selection of lots with golf course views. The subdivision is very conveniently situated between the Main Street downtown of Summerville and the growing commercial offerings of the Knightsville Road area.
