Great course , great staff
Course is truly a great course . The greens , fairways are in great shape. Layout is good.
No dumb holes like some courses .
This course is a gem for the Hamilton area.
Staff are very friendly.
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!
Good condition late in season
Enjoyable course in good condition for end of season. Slower pace of play today - kinda backed up. Challenging layout. Recommended.
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.
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.
This course was our playground as kids.
Kings Forest lower part of Albion Falls! Picturesque and fun layout! Took full 4 hrs to play but was a great day for it!!
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
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.
Very scenic and challenging. Greens were on the slow side however.
First time playing this course. Heard lots of great things, and it’s all true. Great layout, well maintained, friendly staff. Will definitely play this course again. A really great day.
This course is challenging but fun to play.
It's been awhile since we played here, I remember how challenging it was. The pace was good, course was in great shape. Too two of the foursome didn't enjoyed the course but I would want to play it again.
A Gem in the Hammer!!
Living in the Hamilton area for years I'm so disappointed this was my first time playing Kings Forest!! Reason being, it's a touch pricy. Ended up getting a morning tee time for $60 cart and taxes included and it was worth every penny!! All cart paths are paved, course lay out and condition are phenomenal! Beautiful intermediate cuts on the fairways and around all greens, which too are in great shape! Four separate tee boxes on all holes, course has beautiful elevated tee shots looking over the escarpment on a few holes, beautiful mature tree lined fairways and the pace of play was great, didn't wait for one shot until the 18th tee box! I've played approximately 30 courses in the southern Ontario region and all things considered, this track takes the cake! Keep up the good work City of Hamilton!!
Good course I’d absolutely recommend it to someone else. Very scenic and very challenging
You have to use all your clubs on this course, which is good, especially on the tees
There seemed to be a fair amount of moisture on the course...probably due to storms in the area prior to playing...greens seemed very fast at first than seemed to be much slower than they looked and putting came up short many times...course was in great shape and always a challenge...better layout and quality than some private courses that I have played on. Great track and a nice pace of play...not rushed at all.
friendly staff pace of play perfect
would play again
