Forest Hills nice course

Only got to play 4 holes. Rained hard for an hour and was unplayable after that. Tried to contact GolfNow about a credit, but it is virtually impossible to do.

Forest Hills GC

Course conditions right now are great from Tees to Greens, they made a few changes to 8's fairway bunker and the green on 9 that looks like its been there forever, a real nice job. Slight aeration on the greens, most are still very smooth and quick.

Fantastic Course

Belonged to this course for the past year. Unfortunately my time in Augusta, GA has come to an end, but this course will forever bring back fond memories.

Fantastic diverseness of holes; long but not too long; challenging undulating greens; beautiful scenery all around you.

I could not recommend this course enough. Always kept in great condition and always being innovated to provide challenges to golfers of all levels.

Excellent carts, sandy greens

Course was in great shape except for the greens which had been recently aerated and sanded, so putting was impossible. New carts with GPS and built-in speakers were amazing, and beverage cart kept us very hydrated.

Slow wet day

My wife and I got a good rate for this course however it rained over five inches within the last 2 days. The course of play was cart path only so even with a cart it required a lot of walking. We were clipping along through the first three holes and we caught up to a foursome of elderly men who were extremely slow. They could have offered us to play through but it never happened. We could have finished 1 1/2 hrs sooner along with the threesome behind us.

Forest Hills 7/4/2020

The fairways were beautiful and the greens were superb. The greens were extremely fast a simple tap will send the ball flying.

The one thing I didn’t like was the cost of the range balls $7 for a small basket
