About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 5823 yards
Slope 118
Rating 67.9

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.

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.

Very good value for the money

I would first like to thank the staff which was extremely nice. Everyone we dealt with was perfect. The greens were in very good shape, medium speed and true. The tee boxes need a bit of love. It is an old course with nice mature trees all over. We will play again for sure.

Narrow but fair

Course is a bit narrow, so don't expect to use driver too often. A three wood is good practice and puts you in the fairway. Good course to get the winter rust off the clubs and you as well

Nice local course

This is not the best course around. But it is not that expensive. Just arrived if FL and needed to get the rust off me and my clubs. The course is tight so keep the driver in the bag unless you always go down the middle. I had an enjoyable time and got in some good practice.
