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.

Nice Course

Very nice, short but challenging course with fun lay out. It was a beautiful day, played late in the day, so good pace of play. Snack shop made us hamburgers after even though it was late. Friendly staff.

Solid for the price.

Parking is an issue! You are better off in a car pool or better yet uber it. Course fun and not over the top difficult. 5-6 hr round is in play ouch.

Had a 7:15 reservation - didn’t get out until 8 (and I consider that lucky for this course). Constant back up at the tee boxes as they book tee times every 7 minutes. They have the audacity to charge $72 for a sub par minor league course where you’re constantly in danger of getting hit by a ball from other holes. Layout is terrible

To Early in the year to play

It is unfair for me to give a rating on a course that is not in season, normally the course plays well is short tight course recommended for long iron shots to keep ball in play. Today before our normal golf season just getting some swings. Course was deeply affected by recent rain, making course soggy & muddy.

Forest Park

We had a 12:30pm tee time booked, but there was a 2 Hour frost delay so it was all backed up.

We teed off at 1:05 ang got to play 13 holes, there was no rangers on the course so the pace of play was miserable & it seemed that no one cared about what was happening on the course, once they got your money they just didn’t care. They should not have allowed carts on the course, but then that’s about the money also, all in all not a good golfing experience.
