Forest Park Redbud & Dogwood
Great day and perfect weather. Redwood 9 was a bit more challenging than the Dogwood 9. More hills and undulation. Greens were aerated, so it made putting a bit bumpy. A ton of leaves on the course due to the time of year, so that was kind of expected. All-in-all we had a wonderful day and a lot of fun. My only complaint is there were several twosomes which slowed pace of play up by about a half hour or more. A starter would be good for this course as it is always busy. Great course.
Surprisingly fun layout with great greens and scenic views all around—played the back tees and was forced to hit some solid shots into well-bunkered greens—par 3’a were particularly strong
Great course with great views of the city
I was in town for the weekend and got to play this course. Even though they had a tournament starting around noon, the staff was very accommodating. Everyone was very nice. Everything from fairways to greens and everything in between are in great condition. Greens rolled great.
If you’re in the area this course is a must!! Thank you guys at Forest Park!! Will be back
I play in a tournament at Forest Park every September. Considering it is a pubic muni and the amount of play this course gets, it is always in surprising good shape.
Pace of play
3 hours for 9 holes, and we had to skip one because a foursome was giving lessons to each other in the course? Come on. There needs to be a Marshall tracking play and preventing this stuff from happening.
Week Day Evening
Always fun to play here. Decent public course. Greens could use a bit of work. I think they are pretty soft, which is leave crater divots. Playing after work on a week day is nice, they had the tee times stacked, but rate of play was actually pretty good. All in all, pretty happy.
Fun 9, pretty easy course
The course is in good shape, we had fun and it’s wide open. I’d recommend to anyone looking to get a low score
Unique Golfing Experience
It’s been several years since played Forest Park.....what a unique experience playing on a golf course in the middle of a metropolitan city. The course meanders thru St Louis’s most beautiful Park surrounded by historic Worlds Fair structures, Art Museum and walking/jogging trails populated with Washington University students. The course was in very good condition and very enjoyable to play.
The course is in a really great location. Got a lot of people walking and running around the park. Lots to look at in the park. You can see some of the museums as you play. Course is pretty standard but hilly on dogwood and redbud. Greens were pretty bad but it’s still the beginning of the season.
Great Course but slooow!
As always at Forest Park, course in great shape, but super slow play because everyone flocks there when it’s 60 degrees in November in the STL! And of course, like every course in this area, no one knows how to use a divot tool to fix a ballmark.
Nice course, waaaay too crowded for a Wednesday. Only able to get 9 holes in, after having to skip two holes due to a tree on fire! There was a log jam on number 4 of Dogwood of about a dozen people. At least we got a rain check for 9 holes.
Course was in good shape, Greens are a little rough with Ball Mark's .... Overall very pleased and will play plenty more times
