Fall at Kings Forest

A day where it finally decided not to rain over the last 2 weeks. Such a beautiful course in the autumn. I certainly prefer to golf this hidden gem in the fall because of the scenery. When we golf here you forget that you are inside the city. Excellent job by the city to keep this course in the shape it was in the first week of November with all the rain we have been having. Goes to show the improvements that were made back in 2012 to the drainage and the realignment of the red hill creek. If you haven't gotten out to Kings Forest and you live in the area. Do yourself a favour and get out.

Great course!

Kings Forrest is always a treat to play. From check-in, that staff were friendly. We putted around for a little bit before our tee time. Large putting area---didn't notice a place to chip.

Tee boxes were a little banged up, but it is the near the end of the season so it's understandable. I did manage to slip twice when teeing off (wearing golf shoes).

Greens were slow and a little long which is rare--again, I attribute this to nearing the end of the season.

I love the challenge of this course and bunkers protecting some of the greens--great opportunity to get out the 60.

The beer cart came around often, a nice touch!

Overall fairways were in good condition---it's a great course and extremely scenic.

Pace of play was a little slow, but when you're hitting the ball well--sometimes you have to wait for others.

I look forward to playing here again!

A Day Well Spent

Played with 3 relatives and friends.We loved the layout and the pace of play. Our only complaint were the shaggy greens which hadn't been cut or the holes moved in a day or two. That was evident. It was a little pricey for the time of year,but that said,, a day that otherwise was great.

Hidden Gem

A wonderful golf course. Very pretty. Lots of elevation changes. Very challenging but very fair.. Can’t beat it for value. I could be a member there and never be bored.

Pro Shop Staff were fabulous, super friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. If I were looking for customer service employees I would go out of myway to hire the young man and lady that looked after us.

The only downside would be the greens i felt were aerated a little to early but it early didn't have much effect the rolling . But may have played with my head. Over aĺl a very positive experience

Great course!!

Loved this course was challanging but fun. The elevated tees were great to hit from. The course was well maintained from fairways to bunkers and greens. Will definitely go back again before the season is over.

Didn’t meet expectations

Was really looking forward to playing this course. We started ten minutes late. Saw two groups of two go off ahead of us. The one group of two was so slow that we were standing on the tee box for 5 minutes and the group behind us joined us. Watched the golfer top 5 shots and not pick up to keep page of play. There was also no marshall’s on the course to keep pace of play up. The drink cart went in as we were going out (4:20 pm on a Friday). The staff was friendly and the course shape wasn’t ok but we only got 15 holes in before it went dark due to the aforementioned. Will likely seek to play elsewhere next time unfortunately.
