winter golf

Had to walk the course today because I was told there was still snow on the course. That was true but all the cart paths were clear and dry. "Cart Path Only" would have been fine and made our day a lot more golf friendly.

Affordable and close to the city

This course is tight in some spots, making it dangerous with errant shots. The staff is friendly and course is worth the price!

Good Course

Was in good condition for the season. Layout looks like it can be tricky when trees are in full bloom. A few holes, especially 16,17,18 are very close together and will have people playing in every imaginable direction.

Worst of the NYC Area Courses

Forest Park has to be the worst of the NYC area courses. Greens were hardly cut and were patchy. I guess you can't complain for a $37 twilight rate but I would much rather go to Clearview Park if I am in Queens or Split Rock/Pelham Bay are both very good for the money. I will not be coming back to Forest Park.

Nice course but a little slow

Course wasn’t as crowded due to early rain but pace of play was still quite slow. Play would probably improve if course had a driving range, at least for irons. Every time I play here first few holes for many are bad, and it slows down the pace. Also would like to see greens taken care of better by patrons.
