Opened in 1918, Forest Hills Country Club is Middletown's oldest course and it is one of the oldest in the state. The course is nestled amongst mature native trees, running adjacent to the Great Miami River, which comes into play on a few holes. It is considered one of the best nine-hole golf courses in the Greater Dayton and Cincinnati area with a reputation built on its consistently good conditions Although it is short at just under 2,600 yards, there are sculpted bunkers that pack as much of a punch as any full-length course. The course is a great option for a quick round that still offers a challenge. Forest Hills Country Club also provides a great transitional round for beginning golfers looking for more than your average nine-hole course.

Nice track

This is a 9-hole so u play it twice but they give you 2 diff sets of tees to switch it up a little. All par 4's and 3's so it's a great tack to practice scoring on those types of holes. Fairly old school layout everything is right out front of you- some holes require all your shots to be good to make par or better/ if you can make low scores out here you will better your game using this mindset when you play a course with 5's. I did hot deal for 14 bones awesome deal. Enjoy it))

Unique

Loved this course. What it doesn't have in distance is made up for in sloped small greens, well placed trees and fast, rolling conditions. It was very fun

Fun Course between farm fields

I lost about 15 balls in farmers fields or in the ponds but I sure did enjoy it. Mostly par 4 and 5 with a couple 3. The condition of the course could be improved. Overall I enjoyed the course, it was more challenging then most for me.

First time three putter

I'm a 60 year old golfer. I caddied on this course as a boy a couple times during the Middletown golf tournament years ago. The pro that I met here, was very very nice and so was the staff. I plan to either join the club or play here in the future. It's a tough 9 hole golf course.
