Pinescecrest, N.J. (AP) A Pinesborough golf course is opening to the public for the first time in decades.
The Lincoln Golf Course at Pinecrest opened for its first year of operation Tuesday, marking a return to the golf course that is known for its open play and lush green.
“I’m thrilled to have it open again,” said Jim Schieber, president of the Pinescale Golf Club, which is owned by the Golf Course Owners Association of New Jersey.
“It’s a real gem.”
The new Pinescape golf course will be open in the spring of 2019.
The opening of the golf resort is a significant step in the rebirth of Pinesville, located about 25 miles east of New York City.
The Pinesbury Resort and Spa closed its doors in 2008.
In 2016, Pinesport Resort, the golf and recreational center, was torn down and replaced by a new golf course called the Pilsen Resort and Conference Center.
Pinescret’s original course was a series of courses along the shoreline of the Hudson River, where it served as the backdrop for movies such as “The Wild One” and “The Deer Hunter.”
Pinescape was one of three courses in the town of Pilsbury, located near the New York State border.
