Forest Oaks Golf Club in Lake Worth is a public course that is still one of south Florida's best-kept secrets despite having good conditions and affordable rates. The golf course offers an enjoyable round that is challenging but playable. Opened in the 1970s, it has a classic layout that showcases what Florida golf courses are known for. It is a tight layout that requires a fair amount of accuracy but beginners won't feel too out of their league. The layout offers an excellent transition from an executive course. It measures less than 6,000 yards, offering a quick and enjoyable round for more advanced players. Forest Oaks G.C. offers the quality and conditions of a country club course but the friendly and casual atmosphere of a public facility.

claustrophobic and hazardous

Putting a golf course in and around a condo hoa is common but there really needs to be some breathing room in the layout.
This course offers a very narrow corridor of play with considerable risk of hitting cars or windows on almost every hole with one right along a major heavy traffic road with no ball barrier.
The clubhouse is quaint, low intensity lighting, 1 TV, and a minor food and drink bar and patio.
No driving range, and a 10 yard putting green.
Golf carts are propane and fast enough for most.
Greens and fairways were ok, not as horrible as with the WPB public course, but felt and looked needy.

Narrowly escaped

Beautiful course and layout. It's a shame they don't keep it in better condition. Tough course narrow fairways, small greens. Fairways and rough need to be better manicured.. Greens ran really good

Perfect welcome. The course and cart need a refresh

Perfect welcome ! But it's another golf course who try to survive in this cruel world of large offer of tee time... where the quantity of golfers is going down. I hope you will be able to keep something interesting to drive 30 miles for a golf game. But it's not the facts today.
I hope you'll take this like a constructive comment.

Nice Compact Course

The course is shorter than most, which works for my limited skills. The course condition is not great, but okay. The greens are in pretty good shape, fairways a bit less so. Staff is friendly and helpful. The clubhouse is old and pretty worn, could use help.
