Nice open course at a reasonable price.

A friend and I played today (6/4/20) and enjoyed the course. I reserved an 8:40am tee time via GolfNow.com and check-in and payment at the course was a breeze. We found the course to be well-manicured with some high rough on a few holes. Greens were in nice shape despite the numbers divots that players were not repairing. We would definitely go back again. Thanks!

Walked

Awesome condition with new owner in place

Started playing here as a guest in the early ‘90s when it was still private (lived here but was never a member) and maintained as such.

Day to day management changes caused the facility to lose it ex PGA Tourney course luster over the past 15 years; but fast forward to present day and the new owners have workers non-stop around the property.

It’s a very easy course to walk with a carry bag or push cart so don’t be afraid of the length on the card.

Fairways are excellent and the three week old punched greens will be dead solid perfect in ~10 days.

Good layout. Can play tough or not depending on the tee

Course in mint condition. Green rolling pure and fairways perfect conditions. Just a few par 3 plays extremely long from even blue tee. Just play tee to your game. I played blue tee all throughout but played on white tee for every par 3. Good value for money spent. Friendly staff as well

Good course, conditions, friendly staff

Forest Oaks has improved since the last time I played there. Conditions were better. Grass still needs to grow in a bit.

They did an excellent job of ensuring that golfer safety and health are top priority during the Corona Virus outbreak.

I went out by myself and played in 3 hours, great pace of play. The layout has character.

Sergei in the pro shop and Heather at the snack bar are helpful, friendly, and professional.

I would play Forest Oaks again.

Low Cost for decent course

Course deserves recwnt good press for sprucing the place up. Best thing is low cost. I've played a few times recently between $21 - $26 weekdays and weekends. I think they still do memberships but basically comparable to any decent area municipal or public course. Can't imagine much incentive to get a membership at their low rates unless you also play a lot of tennis

Good course

The greens were in as good a shape as any I've ever played, some of the tee boxes and fairways not as much. Despite the current health concerns they made our foursome share two carts despite asking for separate ones. Guess they'd rather ignore social distancing in order to avoid having to charge a few extra carts. Even tho they refused our request for separate carts the foursome behind us all had their own. Also sent out a single player immediately behind us on the first tee, not exactly how a starter should do his job

Beware of the cart upcharge

So when I get there my friend picked me up at my car explaining that if I wanted a separate cart that I would have to pay $15.00. I was surprised by this as every other course I have been to recently has been good about a separate cart for every golfer. We did ride together but I was disappointed that it wasn't mentioned when I was signing up for the round.

True Test

Greens are in great shape. The fairways need some warmer nights to green up.
Forest Oaks is a true test of golf.. Your iron game must be spot on !

Greens had been rolled and were fast and true. Bunkers manicured with new sand. Fairways dormant but good shape for this time of year. Can’t wait till fairways come in. New management doing a great work.
