Pace of play was BAD that day, 5hr round! 4deep on servers holes. Greens are still under recovery with some major dead spots. Nice layout and once greens recovery the course will be worth the green fees.

Overall the course was a good time. Cheap beers, challenging but fun fairways. Only hang up, the greens were washed out a bit. Tough to read. would go back for the price though.

Forest Creek is a great course, or could be. Trees keep you honest and in play. There is significant damage to a few of the greens but they are trying to bring them back. Rest of the course is in good shape. At the price it's a great golf value.

The course is in good shape with exception of greens. Greatly improved over a couple months ago but still have a few in rough shape. The others only had a couple spots on the edge. Staff told me they are sitting course down in November and totally redoing the greens. Not bad especially for an early tee time on the weekend.

Course in pretty good shape overall.. Greens coming back from too much rain in Spring time and Hurricane Harvey. Has some spots on greens that are fungus related . But staff is addressing those issues . In several weeks the greens will look and roll real well.

Course is in rough shape! Greens are a horrible mess. Bunkers are mud pits. It makes for a bad experience no matter how nice they are in the clubhouse. They need to shutdown and overhaul. Don't play here

Course was in very poor condition. Pro shop gave free sleeve of balls to try and make up for condition of most of the greens. Pace of play was terrible I understand it was a holiday weekend , but a course Marshal passed our group twice but did NOTHING about the group in front of us. Eventually had to call the pro shop to try and get situation resolved. It took nearly 6 hours to play round of golf. Will definitely not return

Just an FYI, the course is pretty rough. With recent rains the fairways are still recovering but the greens are in really bad shape. They are dying along the edges and on some there are pretty big bare spots in the middle. I'd give this course at least a few months to get back into shape and go for other courses in the area till the greens recover and they get the fairways back in order.

We had seen that there had been "advisories" on this course for the last three to five weeks and read that the greens were still in recovery - but had we known the actual condition of the greens we wouldn't have played there,

Let's just say that they should have left the advisory warning up and going for a couple more weeks at least!

With the course in good shape generally, it is hard to understand how the greens got so bad. Most were un-puttable due to the rough bare spots. Four holes had temporary greens that putted almost as well as the regular greens. For a competitive round, you would have to use the "two putt rule". The layout is a little quirky and hard to visualize the first time around. $15 would have been a fair price for the round.

I normally love playing this course but right now the greens are just in awful shape. We were made aware of this and the price reflects the conditions but I simply can not recommend this course at this time. Give it another month or so and I'm sure the greens will be back to playable shape and it'll go back to being one of my favorite courses to play.
