Loved it, the value for golf now was just too good to pass up. Excellent course and weather. Would recommend asking for the bug spray to keep gnats and mosquitos away. Overall highly recommend this course.

Temp was in the mid 40's, I showed up about 45 minutes prior to my tee time. The young lady who checked me in was very helpful and friendly. Hit the practice green, which was representative of the greens on the course (fast) and the driving range with has a nice layout with plenty of markers and targets. The course only seemed to have a few golfers so play was at my pace. I loved the layout of the course. It is a bit more challenging than the Links courses in Memphis. The bunkers were in rough shape, but it is the off season. I went the wrong way on hole 4, but had the best drive of the day (took me a minute to figure out the hole was 180 from where I hit). No fault of the the course or layout. I did enjoy it quite a bit and for the price as compared to other public courses at about the same rate I would say it is the best mid priced course in the area. Will definitely be back.

Very nice course, fun to play, different layouts on many holes, nice condition, FAST greens (but fun, just don't get too excited about 3 putts), and probably the friendliest person in the club house.

Sand bunkers were iffy in some places, otherwise a nice course!

I was hesitant at first to write a review because I love how this course isn't over played. It's located about 10 minutes north of Millington, TN and you have to know where you're going to get there but it's a pleasant drive. The course layout is excellent. You will play every club in the bag. The staff is so friendly from Patty in the shop to the owner who I got to meet on Sunday. In spite of the dryness lately the course is still in good shape. The rough it penalizing, the fairways mowed and in good shape and the greens are amazing and fast. I love playing this course and drive past 4 or 5 other courses to get to this one and I'm never disappointed.

The course is under new management. The staff is very friendly, the menu has changed and the food is now excellent. Tournament rates are very competitive and usually lower than any other course in the area. This is a beautiful course that is worth the drive.

If you were discouraged in the past because of your experience , please give Forest Hills a second look. Things have changed dramatically and the staff and food are great and the course is awesome.

I enjoyed playing here. The pace of play is better than other courses I have played in the area. That has been a battle since moving here this year. The greens were fine. I did think some of the directions, especially around hole 4 could be better. Overall, I really liked it and will be back.

Very enjoyable round. Not super long but few straight holes. Great greens that are sloped and quick. Well worth the price and the drive out from Memphis. I'm sure I'll go back again soon.

The greens played like they hadn't been cut in 5 days; they were soft and slow. Fairways with any trees nearby were littered with sticks and tree branch fragments blown out by a storm 6 days prior, and they must have just mowed over them instead of picking them up. The course has a ton of potential because of the hills and general layout of the holes, but the grounds were in terrible condition for the hype I've seen about this course.
