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.

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.

The course was narrow and the greens were small and a lot of undilation. Was much more challenging than expected especially with the wind yesterday.

The greens are the thing

We're "snowbirds" so we don't see dormant conditions very often. The fairways and tees were pretty sparse with lots of bare spots but what makes it all worth it is the superb greens. Our home course is known for their speed but these were continually surprising. There wasn't much break to account for so if a putt looked straight it was. It was fun to continually make those 4-6 footers.

Fair Fairways

Play this course couple of times a year for past few years.

Greens always in great shape, fairways although much better than in the past still need work.

Normally pace of play very good due to lack of players.

Tight fairways and water placements makes this a good play for intermediate golfers.

A barren wasteland

I played this course because of reviews. One said "hidden gem" only if you count fossilized feces as a gem! If they allowed pictures in this review I would post them. The tee boxes were mowed weeds, fairways weren't any better and they had tons of bare spots. Almost every green had some kind of damage that I thought might be a fungus. I thought for the price and from the reviews that I would have a nice day. How wrong I was. I didn't shoot bad, even birdied the par 5 18th. But the conditions made the day a struggle. If you decide to risk playing here, expect a very tight course and bring lots of balls.

Challenging course

Cold morning but fun day of golf. Always professional, friendly staff. No matter how many times you play this course, very challenging. Greens looking good each week, tight lies on some fairways but manageable. Lots of improvement each week & the best green fees in Palm Beach county.
