Excellent surprise

First time to play at Forfar Golf club and what an excellent surprise to find a beautiful course laid out in a challenging but very fair way for a couple of keen golfers.this course is a must if you want to discover unique fairways that won't be found anywhere else in the world. A definite return will be on the agenda at some point

Excellent heathland course

Excellent heathland course Not long but favours position play to stay out of the hazards. Good variety of holes some blind shots but adds to the experience. Excellent greens especially after our long dry spell. Pleasant friendly staff. Would recommend and definitely play again.

Interesting parkland course

Height of summer and course was good. Greens excellently maintained. Interesting course uses bunkers well - varying width fairways and rough you can find your ball in usually. Little bit back and forth parallels for some holes. Some closeness between greens and tees in places. Definition nicely somewhere I’d play again Staff in pro shop and bar made us welcome.

Ground staff rudeness

Great course and always found clubhouse and shop staff very friendly and helpful but this time our round was marred by blatant rudeness by grounds men mowing tees and not only not being polite enough to pause when golfers were driving off but these guys refused to stop mowing and blowing on several tees which was not only offensive but contributed to further delaying a busy course. Very disappointed and have never come across similar behaviour anywhere else.

Enjoyable course

Though play was slow today, an enjoyable course. I forgot my GPS distance tracker so really struggled to get an idea of the distance as the 150 yard markers were difficult to find?

Fabulous course

First time playing here and it was fantastic. Turned up early and Pro was very friendly and let us tee off early. Hardly anyone else on the course so played in 3 hours without rushing. Views from the holes were lovely and the course layout great. Fairways were in good condition as were the greens. Would definitely play again. Good test for both of us as a single figure and high teen handicapper. Service in clubhouse after unfortunately not a great experience. Only ordered sandwiches and chips and waited ages and then what was served was not good. Next time will just play the course and not go in for food afterwards which is a shame as when you get such a deal on the golf it's nice to go and spend some money in the clubhouse.

Excellent weather

Compact course.

Good condition but slow play and food was really poor.It could have been a bad day in the kitchen but it was a letdown.Course was 7/10 though and some cracking holes.

Alternative to the links

If you are in Carnoustie Country and its too windy on the coast you must try Forfar, fantastic gem of a course well laid out. Every hole is different and offers a great challenge for all levels. Excellent greens, manicured fairways and tidy bunkering make it a really great experience Clubhouse catering is of a good standard and very reasonable with plenty of choice. Good view out over the tricky 18th green to enjoy as you relax after your round Great course don't miss it.
