In great condition

Forest Hills is in great condition right now and you can't beat the value. If this were up north it would be a $175 round.

FYI - they are currently renovating the greenside bunkers and hole #8 is closed.

Excellent Course for the money

Excellent Course for the money... There was a girls league or tournament walking in front of us that lead to the slow play. Like the course layout with some fun holes and greens.

Get what you pay for.

Sure you get a nice discount on the afternoon round but just like a lot of other courses late morning they send their crews out blowing, mowing and trimming. Some do a better job at being courteos than others. This place really didn’t give us enough courtesy today.Not shutting equipment off, coming up cart paths while we we on the tee box, laying sod in front of tee box while we’re teeing off. I know this is a necessary evil but It just felt like for four holes they were stalking us. My buddy had a par round going but by the time we got away from them it was wrecked.

Groundskeeper with a death wish

A great course in very good condition and reasonably priced. My only issue was as I was preparing to tee off on 12 a groundskeeper walked out 20 yards in front of the tee and started digging a hole. When I asked him to let me hit he completely ignored me and just stared at me. Rather than risk taking his head off I teed off from the ladies tees. Weird.

Fun Course

Tee boxes need some grass on a few. Greens had been punched about 2 weeks earlier. Not very fast greens. Water on only backside par 3. Very hilly back nine while front nine was not as hilly. Will be back

Aerated greens

I do like this course but I was told the greens were aerated two weeks ago but they were good to go now.....they were not good. I would say the greens right now are at best terrible. Bumpy, sandy some were much faster/slower than others. The pace was horrible. Waited at least 5 minutes on each shot! There was a group of 5 ahead of us. Not ok.

Forest hills

Love the course. Greens recently aerated but rolled okay. Fairways in great shape. Recent rains resulted in reduced roll out but greens receptive. Played an additional 9. Pace of play was great.

Great price, great pace

The greens were recently aerated and were still relatively playable (The GolfNow booking indicated an aeration notification) so course conditions could not be rated at the highest level. Otherwise course conditions were very good. Very friendly greeting from the staff—we were allowed to start earlier than our tee time. Pace of play was outstanding—3 of us finishing in less than 3 hours. We had time to play an additional 9 holes for the price of the golf cart. Forecasted rain and recent maintenance on the greens probably kept others away—but we found everything perfect for our round. Very fair and playable layout—not many bunkers and only two water crossings (on par 3’s). In a few weeks the course should be in great shape—highly recommended

nice course

My first visit to Forest Hills was enough to bring me back despite my bad score. The fairways are cut short so lots of roll and the only drawback to that is that the ball does not sit up well. I almost preferred the lie in the rough! I hit 4 or 5 bunkers and all of them seemed to have huge lips, quite a challenge for this duffer! The greens were nice with many undulations and tiers and also quite fast. I'll score better next time!

Great Round at Forest Hills

Another good day playing at Forest Hills. The course is in good shape. Tee boxes need some attention after leveling last year they seem a bit beat up. Greens are fast, fast, fast. Had to wait on a few holes for slower group ahead, but round finished in exactly 4 hours.

Could be in better shape.

We played the course the day after The Masters. The grass around the greens was brown, if there was any grass at all. There was a lot of dirt around the greens which made chipping impossible. Many tee boxes were in bad shape with no grass at all. The greens on the other hand were in great shape. We got a great deal on Golf Now for $30 per golfer, so it was still a great deal. But if we had to pay $175 during Masters week we would have been greatly disappointed with the conditions. It is a nice track and the best public course near The Masters. Springtime in Augusta should have fantastic course conditions.
