Forest Glen is one of the best courses available for non-members to play. It plays longer than advertised yardages due to bunkers, water hazards and Florida flora that lines most of the fairways. Tips feature long carries over water hazards on several holes. There is abundant trouble from modestly forward tees, too.

This course will teach both advanced and intermediate players humility.

Water hazards were low on water when I played in late May 2018. Fairways and greens are well maintained and in very good condition. Excellent practice facilities make early arrival a good idea.

This is a must play course, in my opinion

Forest glen is a well maintained very nice course. During season it is difficult to play but appeared on golfnow mid April and we grabbed a tee time. The practice area is manicured grass with an aqua driving range, nice chipping and putting area. The fairways, greens and tee boxes are immaculate. The layout is good, challenging but fair. There are a couple of quirky par 4s on the back that make you think (1 hole was 8 iron off tee and another 8 iron to green). The greens have undulations and will force a few three outs.

Solid course that should be on your list when in. Naples.

Our 'experience' began with our friends being asked to leave the grounds because they showed up more than an hour before our tee time. They arrived at 11:10 for our 12:18 tee time. They were asked to leave the grounds until the 'appointed hour' by the security guard. With the exception of the bag drop staff, we found the attitude of ALL other employees to be, at best, indifferent, but mostly unwelcoming. We wanted to meet for lunch (hence the early arrival) but we could only eat outside as indoor dining is reserved for members. This is a private country club that appears to enjoy the additional revenue from the outside public, but not the presence of the players themselves.

We have played at many of Southwest Florida's private courses, and Forest Glen is the exception to the usual friendly and welcoming attitude in the area.

The course itself is well laid out, in good condition, with the greens true, albeit not fast.

Play somewhere else, where you will feel welcome, not as an intruder.

The course is in great shape. It also is very challenging, especially from the gold tees. You definitely need to be in the right position off the tee to play your shots into the green. The greens are fairly fast, especially downhill puts which are numerous with the undulating green. I enjoy playing this course whenever I can.

One star mostly for terrible pace of play. Teed off 15 minutes earlier than scheduled behind other Golf Now foursome. We were a Golf Now foursome as well. Early afternoon round took 4:35 minutes. Was starting to be dark when done. Marshal came by on hole no. 5 and suggested to take our time as it was slow play. Being members of a private club back North we did expect pace to be slow in the afternoon but not 4:35 minutes. We expected a max of 4:00 for a PM round in South Florida. Really nice course, unable to enjoy. Suggestion: in spite of great deal at 79.00 take your money else where or try and get an AM starting time as pace of play should be better.
