Forest Hills Golf Club, Detroit Lakes, MN

Loved the golf course. Fairways in excellent condition and the greens were semi-fast and smooth. Rough was sticky (as it should be). Lots of water throughout the course. The lady that checked us in pretty neutral, not friendly, but not hostile either. Driving range setup is unusual, we had to reload our clubs back into our car to drive to the range. There apparently is no access to the range from the course and at $5 a bucket it was somewhat inconvenient. All things considered we had a great day!!

I really enjoy Forest Hills. I have played 3 other courses in the area and I enjoy this so much.
It is close to where we stay at Lakecrest Resort, but it is like being in the country because of the fields around it and the quietness of the course. Thanks to golfnow.com for being so helpful, getting me a good tee time and a very reduced rate. I don't know if I would have played there for the $65 Friday rate. Blessings to Forest Hills and golfnow.com

Great course.

I was a golf professional for 25 years and obviously got to play some fine courses. Forest Hills turned out to be one of the nicest ever. Challenging but fair and in outstanding condition. Greens were fast, rolled true but would also accept shots. The fairways were green, generous, and evenly cut at the right height. The rough was also green but not unduly punitive. The course shows it is evidently maintained by someone that knows what they are doing.
We will definitely be back!

Hidden Gem off US Highway 10

Very friendly staff. Gentleman in pro shop walked me through course hints when he learned it was my first time at the course and followed up with me after the round at my car to check on my experience. I have driven by this course for years and can only see the opening par 3 from US 10. Very well worth the stop to see and play the other 17 holes.
