Great experience

Playing this renovated layout after several years away was a treat. Wide fairways with large accessible greens make for lots of opportunities to score. Staff is friendly attentive and helpful.

Great Rounds

I’ve played this course a few times now and love it. The only thing is the greens are always dried out. When hitting green 9 out 10 times it’s going roll off. My only request for this course is water the greens more.

Trail fee?

Our 2-some had 2 complimentary Green Fee vouchers from the course itself. The voucher stated the cart fee would be charged at check-in. Ok, no problem, thats usually how it goes at most courses. Then, the employee said it would be $20 for a cart. Not $20 total, $20 per person for one cart. My buddy paid his $20 and told me i had to go inside to pay the cart fee as well. I told the guy that I decided to just walk the round instead of using a cart. He then said I would still be subjected to a $20 "trail fee". Whatever, I paid the $20, not a big deal, but the website has no reference to a trail fee. Has anyone ever heard of a cart costing $20 PER PERSON?? thats bad form in my opinion..

Solid track, with quality fast greens.

Forest Creek is a very decent layout, with fairways and greens in good condition. The welcome is excellent, and the green fee with cart, range balls, a hot dog and drink, and three complimentary balls for the round added up to good value. Overall, we were satisfied with the visit, and would have no trouble recommending it.

Outstanding Customer Service

This round was with my son for his birthday. When I mentioned that to the pro shop they comped his round! Not only that but every staff member signed a birthday card for him which they presented to him on the 6th tee! The starter Mike was funny and engaging and made us feel welcome! The course was in great shape!

First timer

I have been wanting to play this course for years but always heard how bad it was before they refurbished it. I have to say they have done an excellent job. I had a great time even though it took me a while to get off the dang tee.

1st time since the renovation

Staff was super nice.
Range was good. Nice chipping area
Course was in really good shape. Tee boxes all top notch. Greens are new, and they have made a couple of the almost unplayable ones good (looking at you, #8).
It's the same nice layout but with new greens bunkers and tee boxes.
We played a 4:05 round for a Sunday 12:30 tee time, so not bad.

Love this course

A great layout with an abundancy of different holes that makes it so challenging. Some with wide landing areas some with tight areas that require accuracy. The greens putt extremely consistent but the only drawback is the firmness. You must be able to put spin on your approach shots or they will roll off the back of the greens. Bunkers are well kept and consistent

Course condition

Several of the tee boxes were burnt out and sanded. And the par 5 3rd hole was converted into a par 3 and we didn’t find out about it until the starter told us. Oh, and it took us 5hrs which is ridiculous.

Great course for the Money!

Course was in great condition. Greens firm, fairways smooth. Course was in in great condition overall.
The course is very up and down ( hilly), has good turns and can be challenging if you are not very accurate off the box.
Bring the first time I played the course I wasn’t familiar with the layout. Very small course layout on score card, but hard to read.
The staff was friendly and the Marshall was making consistent rounds to make sure pace was being upheld.
Great course for the cost.

Great condition and friendly staff. Good practice facilities. Challenging course, only a few easy holes. Holes number 9 and 18 are almost too difficult.

Just needs time

Love the layout, staff were friendly. They spent a lot of money to redo the course. It would be a 5 but not until next year when the greens are better. They are so hard they can’t hold a shot to the front of the green without running off the back. It was a great day, just frustrating to play bogie golf because of the greens. I feel like I’m being picky, but I won’t pay $70 for frustrating greens when there are plenty of courses for $55-$60 that have amazing greens. I’ll be back but maybe in the fall.

Tough course, a lot of fun!

Fairways and greens in great shape. Greens are pretty fast right now but are rolling true. Love the layout of the course it’s very challenging and you have to pick your shots. A ton of fun!

Too slow

Played Friday afternoon expecting to be busy and it was. Pace of play was terrible as it took over 5 hours to play. There was a twosome that was holding up some foursomes and the Marshall never spend anyone up. As for the course, it will grow in better when it gets hotter. Greens and tees were in good shape. Consider increasing prices to reduce traffic, increase pace of play, and not have the course torn up.
