The manager here truly makes you feel at home.
Course is great and challenging. Had a wonderful time playing. Food was amazing at the end and I will be back for both.
My dog and I were headed to the mountains to go on a hike but instead we stopped off at this Par 3 course just off Highway 4 and decided to get our hike in here. It was 8 am on a weekday morning and I was the 2nd person on the course. I paid for 18 holes for $18. Not bad! Courtney in the shop is the GM and was extremely sweet
- Fun little 9 hole layout with a mixture of short par 4s and challenging par 3s.
- I was impressed with the condition of the course considering there was snow on the ground for most of the winter. In the shade, there were some wet spots, but the conditions were nice in the sun as you can see in my pics. Greens weren't too bad!
- Community is rallying around to try to save the course which is kind of sad.
On Mondays they have a $10 all you can play deal where you leave $10 in the mailbox and just go play
Overall, something fun to do if you are vacationing up here in the summer and want to kill a couple hours. Very enjoyable experience and glad I stopped off and played
All by myself
Greens were perfect, not too fast. Carts and cart paths a little roughed. Fairways are narrow.
Great little hidden gem of a course.
Great little hidden gem of a course. For the price, this was far more than an excellent deal.
A great little track, who has been forced to close 9 and is really working hard to keep the front 9 open..I don't understand the politics, but a group of homeowners and other volunteers have ponied up some money and time to keep a great old course open and playable. Greens are stills very good, fairways are pretty good, bunkers need work. Tight fairways and overhanging oaks are a great equalizer for the guys who like to just grip it and rip it. Views and surrounding forest are a treat. Affordable golf in the area is at a minimum, and I just hope Forest Meadows can hang on. The on line articles about the corse being permanatly closed are obviously premature. Nice selection of cold draft beer available after your round.
Course is in good shape price is right. Had a good lunch afterwards too
great for beginners
This is not an RT Jones, Jr. course anymore. It was originally. It had 13 par 3s of varying length and elevation changes, 1 par 5 and 4 par 4s, large undulating and fast greens, and high rough around them. But the new owners hacked up the course by cutting it back to 9 holes, and combined difficult par 3s to make easy par 4s. The greens are smaller and they putt slow but they are in good shape, the sand traps are smaller and some are removed and the high rough was eliminated. It's a good course for beginners because you can take your time and not feel you are holding up other players. that is because play is usually very light.
Great for the price
Played this course with my wife. Its a fantastic course for the price. Its more challenging than you would think. You have to play golf here. It doesn't allow big hitters just to wail away and play from the rough. You need to play some actual golf shots. At the same time, my wife loved it. Its not overly tough on high handicappers. We played !8 and even though I shot 80, I loved every minute. The only downfall is the cartpath. A bit rough would be and understatement. It felt like an off-road course. But it doesn't take away from the enjoyement.
Place for beginners
First time playing this course. The course was in good shape. Greens were in good shape, fairways were in good shape and sandtraps were like most courses these days, very little sand. This course is great for beginners and seniors, not too hard. This course is in an area of retirees, to far to travel for a round of golf and the course is just right for the people in that area. I got a deal for $15. through Golfnow and that is pretty much what I would pay if I played it again. If I lived in the area it would be a nice course to play but not a course I would travel to. I would play it again if I was in the area.
It's obvious this course has seen better days, but the staff is trying hard to keep the remaining nine in playable condition. Greens are actually quite good, fairways are playable despite drought and some uneven watering. Staff is super friendly, carts are clean and sound (cart paths are really rough). Overall, a very beautiful setting which I hope stays open - not many other affordable choices in the area.
Signage is Challenging
Signage and cart paths need work
Otherwise beautiful course.
My husband and I came to play this course because of the setting, and the fact that although I am disabled with spine problems, I am able to enjoy this course. The price is hard to beat. I have played here with a friend of mine and we also had a great time. I have told numerous people when I play on other courses how great this course is. I look forward to playing many more rounds at Forest Meadows, or Murphys 9. A great place to play!
Great 9 hole course. 1st Tee gets your attention with a visually narrow Par 5 so you know that this isn't a Small layout. Serious Golf but really fun. Great for all levels of players. Go Play thus one!!
Better than ever
I was sad to see the back nine go but wow did they do a good job of pulling it together in nine holes. I played two days in a row. Shot 4 over one day and 9 over the next, It has some really challenging par threes.
Course fairways were a bit rough. Greens were very good. Course short, but challenging.
I had a phenomenal time at Forest Meadows. The greens were in good condition. There were several holes with great views of the mountains and valley. We were the only ones on the course which was nice to not feel rushed through the game. I had a great time and highly recommend anyone to play Forset Meadows.
