Some of the greens just cored , actual rate at club thus reduced to £15 rather than £20 on this website . A lovely course with some interesting holes and a good length for high handicappers

Lovely course in very good condition. Very heavy rain just before we started had some slight flooding on a couple of greens but that was to be expected given the volume of rain that fell. Mostly dry for our round. Nice layout and interesting challenges. Greens in fine condition. Only the calls of Fore were disconcerting on a couple of holes. Some guys ahead must have been over-cooking it! I like to think that I'll play there again next time I'm nearby.

But shame about the bunkers!!

Don't get me wrong, I've played Forres 40 times and the course was in the best shape ever.... the greens were divine, medium fast but looked and putted smooth as silk. If you missed it was your fault. Great speed of play on a bank holiday and good weather laid on.

Alright, the criticism...... bunkers had variable sand depths but more importantly the members playing in front hadn't bothered to rake when they'd been in. How rude

Friendly and welcoming staff in the Proshop and club house The course is very well maintained and the greens were in excellent condition. Some golfers may find the undulating fairways off putting, as well the well placed bunkers.

Up and down a few hills, but not overly demanding physically. Superb conditions, Nice snack bar with patio and golf course views. Not a destination course, just a pleasant, enjoyable layout.

Course in ok condition for time of year but was dissapointed after booking with Golfnow that it was a short course due to winter tees and greens with no prior warning. There was also 1 hole closed and a par 5 made into 2 par 3's.<br/> Booking through Golfnow made this Course more expensive as the walk on price was the same as Golfnow price but had to pay a booking fee.<br/> Dissapointment all directed at Golfnow not the golf club.
