Ben Hogan once called Pine Tree "the best flat course in the world." One of the reasons is that architect Dick Wilson is remembered for being able to defend a green with the best golf course designers in the world. No further evidence is need than his work at Pine Tree where each approach must be played with pinpoint accuracy.

Known as a "player's club," Pine Tree members were still taken a little aback when fellow member Sam Snead entered the club championship in 1979. Despite the protestations from his fellow members, Snead played and won the stroke-play event-only to hand the trophy over to the runner-up at the awards ceremony. Sensing Snead might do just that, the club had a second trophy at the ready to give to Snead.
