Nice Course to play again and again!

It's been really several years since I played at this course.

I remember this was one of few nice Golf Course around where I live [this is the furthest distance]

And yes, it still is nicely maintained!

I've been playing other courses and most of them have suffered great loss on greens but, this Course managed to SURVIVED! Yes, there are couple greens had few crabgrasses but compared to other ones, this is like 20 times better!

Just wish this is close to my home then I would play here more often.

Hit'em straight people!

The course was in great shape! Many of the courses in the area were crushed with the wet spring and heat of summer, but Forest Greens somehow has made the best of it. I've been playing this course for the past 12 years and have never seen the fairways and greens in better shape. The staff is always friendly, and it is great to see Eric there with his big grin greeting you. We were lucky to get a great rate on Golf Now for $39.00. The twosome Bill put us with perfectly matched up with our skills which turned into a very enjoyable afternoon. Definitely a course I am going to visit more as we get into the fall golf season. Get out and golf Forest Greens, it is a good track!

Great course - will be back

The staff was incredibly friendly. The on-site driving range was well kept and reasonably priced. The course forces you to play many different shots and is kept in great shape. I’ll play this course many more times!

Decent course but...

Their fairways were absolutely atrocious. To the point where I almost wouldve rather played from outside the fairways. They were bare and dry. Felt like you had to pick every shot clean because the ground was so hard.

Greens were in nice shape but a little slow. Bunkers were littered with stones. Probably won’t okay there again anytime soon.

Forrest Greens wasn't very green

I've played this course dozens of times and I've never seen the course in worse shape. The fairways were brown with almost no grass. Did they forget to pay their water bill or their superintendent?

Hitting from the fairways was a "tight lie" almost every time. Absolutely terrible.

If they discounted their fees or let people know in advance, it wouldn't be as bad. But to pay $50 or more to play their, not any time soon.

Saturday Golf Outing

Perfect except they had aerated the greens and didn't inform us. The greens rolled ok. Would have been greatly disappointed if we had paid full price. Staff was great and a pleasure. Will return because the course is great to play.

Thank you for the feedback on the course and staff. My apologies that you were not informed of the aerification as we do try to make sure this information is shared with our guests. As a practice we try to do our aerifications in late April and late September. If you are coming out around these time frames please contact our golf shop staff directly during normal business hours so they can inform you one way or the other. At times we do have challenges with the national switch board not sharing details like this.

Again my apologies you were not informed prior to your arrival.

We hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful and tough

Course is great but could use a face lift. It's a beautiful course with great layout and lots of elevation changes and dog legs but the greens are hard to read and the sand bunkers are rocky. Other than that, the course is fun and provides plenty of challenges.

Eduardo, thank you for the feedback on our course. Forest Greens has been around for sometime now and the crew work hard to provide the best conditions we can. It is our hope that we can get some large scale work done on the bunkers in the coming seasons. We hope you can come back for a future round when the bermuda is fully in bloom.

Thank you
