REALLY coming around

Have to give credit when it's due and the course is really coming back around. Fairways were in good shape, tee boxes are coming around and the greens looked really good. Only issue was pitch marks that weren't repaired properly. Pace of play was great. Course layout is probably my favorite in the Triad.

Love the Layout

Fine layout -championship quality. Friendly staff and pricing. Greens were very good, fairways so so and traps/rough in need of work. Not sure if course is on the start of a rise, or decline, but definitely in transition from the glory years. Still, for under $40 on a Sunday, I recommend it!

Coming Back Nicely

Every time I play this course it gets better and better. The greens are rolling smooth and quick. There are still a few bad spots on the greens but they are much improved than the last time I played. I cannot recommend this course enough!

Great layout

Could see how it hosted tour event, played in offseason so condition is hard to tell. Looks like they are working on upgrading some bunkers. Will play again

and it could be so great !!

Just moved to area, had no idea of the Tour history at this course. (GGO etc.) Layout fabulous but oh dear... what happened? Unkempt is an understatement! The new management must find value in bringing this one back to its potential. The members must be livid. For "cheap" golfers... play it now. A few bucks spent by new management and you'd be happy to play it for double what they are discounting it to now. I'll be back either way.

Great Layout

Great layout with a good variety of left/right dog legs. Par 3's are very good....we played from white tees...6350 yds. Bent grass greens have taken a beating with summer heat (and unrepaired ball marks), most of the sand traps are packed sand/mud. Course needs some TLC....it's too good to skimp on maintenance. I imagine the greens will be in very good condition again come mid-Sept. Great play on GN Hot Deal.

Worth it

Course was in good condition considering how hot it was around 4th of July. Played again two days later. Was very happy with conditions, pace of play, and staff.

High expectations for Forrest Oaks

Course wasn't upkept as much as I thought it'd be. If you miss the fairway on some holes good chance your ball gone. Best of luck

PGA Tour Layout that has been sent to the nursing home to slowly die

Growing up watching the GGO, I jumped on the opportunity to play a mid-week afternoon round for $30 at Forrest Oaks when business brought me to Greensboro. You realize upon pulling up that she is a ways from her glory days. Crabgrass lines half the tee boxes, if there is any grass at all. Fairways were good, with the exception of a few holes in which a majority of the ground is under repair. The greens were mediocre; slow and bumpy on some holes, other holes impeccable but still slow. This layout is tough and will test your skills. 3 par 3s flirting with 200 yards from the men's tees is a rarity for a public golfer, and the course requires you to work the ball both ways off the tee. For the price I was satisfied with the round and course, but you can't help getting a somber feeling walking the fairways knowing what the course used to be. Although disappointing that the owners have let the course slip to the condition it's in, it's not often you get to walk the same fairways that legends of the game have for under $30. I reccomend this course to anyone looking for a tough test for a good value and can appreciate the history of the course, but if you show up expecting the Forrest Oaks of 90s and early 00's, you will leave disappointed.
