When 18-year-old Lucy Li played at the Twin Bridges Championship at Pinehaven in 2021, she didn’t make the cut. She was down on her game after what was her third straight missed cut, and wound up not earning her LPGA card that year. 

But some important things happened. She watched her friend Lilia Vu overcome her own struggles to win the 2021 event. Her mentor as one of many Asian-Americans on tour is now crushing it on the LPGA tour with $449,359 in earnings so far. That provided some much-needed inspiration.

Besides the beautiful facilities, the members are the reason we've never looked to go to any other club. There is no snootiness to be found at Pinehaven. It is easy to make friends there.  - Adam

...ALL of the ladies I played with were friendly, accepting of a new player who wasn’t very good, and fun to play with.  - Noreen

Fantastic walkable golf course. ... Price is right. A bit less than some clubs, a lot less than others. Had to leave public golf. Don’t regret it for a minute.  - John
