Week Day Evening
Always fun to play here. Decent public course. Greens could use a bit of work. I think they are pretty soft, which is leave crater divots. Playing after work on a week day is nice, they had the tee times stacked, but rate of play was actually pretty good. All in all, pretty happy.
Fun 9, pretty easy course
The course is in good shape, we had fun and it’s wide open. I’d recommend to anyone looking to get a low score
Unique Golfing Experience
It’s been several years since played Forest Park.....what a unique experience playing on a golf course in the middle of a metropolitan city. The course meanders thru St Louis’s most beautiful Park surrounded by historic Worlds Fair structures, Art Museum and walking/jogging trails populated with Washington University students. The course was in very good condition and very enjoyable to play.
The course is in a really great location. Got a lot of people walking and running around the park. Lots to look at in the park. You can see some of the museums as you play. Course is pretty standard but hilly on dogwood and redbud. Greens were pretty bad but it’s still the beginning of the season.
For the amount of play this course gets It’s in great shape. Hats off to the grounds crew. So fun to play golf in an urban park and watch all the other things going on while waiting to shoot. Will definitely come back
The slow play and lack of monitoring by staff makes this course unplayable on a weekend. Regardless of what openings are shown on this app the course is always jam packed. Clubhouse sends out groups and does not monitor when they tee off, what the group looks like 1,24,5 whateversome, and no checking to see if people are keeping up. 3 hours in and quit on 10th hole. It is disappointing because I like the course in beautiful forest park. My suggestion is to wait until your next tournament out there and avoid it for normal play.
Rained the night before, so cart path only. Even so, the tee boxes are all in good condition, good layout and no issues with pace of play. Good value overall.
Played early Sunday with my daughter on Redbud/Dogwood routing. The Rebud was the more interesting of the two with some cool holes with elevation changes. The Dogwood was the flatter of the two and wove through marshes and grasses. Zoysia fairways were a plus. Rough was sporadic with multiple types of grass. Greens were fairly slow with numerous ball marks (an expected mini trait
Nice Course...slow play
Despite the brutal summer, the course was overall in pretty good shape. The fairways were excellent, and sand traps were in good shape. The greens were hit and miss on their conditions. Some desperately need work, but inconsiderate players are probably the source. That can also be said for the pace of play. I was a single with a cart and my front nine took forever. The course was pretty busy. A group of three with one walking should not have been allowed, and they never let me through although I was at a much faster pace despite playing poorly. This should have been policed. Because of the multiple courses, my back nine was different than others, and my pace of play was where it should be. It also didn’t hurt other plays had the respect to let me go through. I will play again. A word of advice to anyone unfamiliar with the course, you either need to go during an off time or make sure you have all day. It will take you that long.
This was first time at FoPo in along time. Course was in excellent shape. Staff was very friendly and played 9 holes in 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon. Would definitely go back
Played Dogwood and Redbud and the courses were in the best condition since I have been playing there. Greens were in great shape, fairways were incredible, and tee boxes were great. I played at Golf Club of Wentzville the following day and Forest Park was in much better shape. Sand Traps still need some work but I shouldn’t be in there anyway. Would recommend these courses to everyone.
I enjoyed the entire experience! Great employees in the clubhouse bar/restaurant
Forest Park GC - first round of spring
Course is still brown (Zoysia) from winter and the aerated greens were a bit bumpy and unpredictable, but overall the beautiful weather made it a great round of golf to start the season. The biggest challenge (for me anyway) was the large number of bunkers around the course. I ended up playing out of at least 5 bunkers. We played Dogwood and Hawthorn to make up our 18. Good course close to home.
The Jewel of Metropolitan golf in St. Louis
When I get a chance to play any of the golf courses at Forest Park for a good rate I'm pleased. I usually play cheaper courses. These courses are beautifully designed and well maintained.
