1920s Course

Forest Park is your typical classic course form the 1920s - lots of mature trees and small greens. Only 9 holes, and you tee off from a mat on 1, which is a short, reachable par 5 (the only one). Hole 4 has 2 greens for some reason, and holes 5 & 6 run along route 19, and while there are large trees between the course and the road a stray shot can get out there.

I was literally the only person on the course on this hot afternoon, so it took me 1:19 to ride 18 holes. Not bad for $20, which is their weekday riding special. The course overall is in good shape, greens are a little slow but roll true, fairways are fine, and the rough is like a backyard but not long. Has some room to miss off most tees and greens, though a couple greens have tiny bunkers guarding them. All in all, it'd be a great place to learn the game and has a good rate. If you can get out there when it's empty you'll get around quick too. Won't knock your socks off but you can do worse.

Good for beginners

This is the second course I've played in my life. It should have been the first course for a beginner. This course is better fit for someone new to golf. The 9 hole is a lot of fun for anyone.

This course is in very good condition espicially for the price.

This course is very good to come out and play with a few friends. You do not have to be a really good player to play well, even though at this golf course beginners play it is a great place to play because the pace of play is very quick and the course is not that challenging but still fun and a good price.
