Rating 67.9
Type Public
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.

First Time Playing

If you like playing in a 400 yard bunker this course is for you

The fairway was in terrible shape, dirt and sand everywhere. The tee boxes were even worse with crab grass covering every inch. Not to mention the old gas golf carts that hardly worked... this course needs more greens keepers
