Prior site of the pga GGO

Course was in decent shape for late winter. Bermuda rough was dormant but thick and easy to hit out of. Greens ran true and were quick. Great layout. Would like to play it again when it warms up and the Bermuda greens up. 5 sets of tees for all abilities. It’s obvious why the pga tour played here until 2007. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed

Great course, great value

The course is beautiful, challenging and in great shape. Greens are difficult with several false fronts but run true. It was very crowded due to mid-60 degree temps in February so play was slow but it was worth it. It is a championship caliber course for the cost of a run of the mill track for this area. This is a must play course!

Golf at Forest Oaks Country Club

Played on 02/09/2022 and checked in at pro shop and got to go out a little early. Played as a twosome and round took four hours to play but never seemed rushed from behind but followed a twosome that were walking. It was also Cart path only but course pretty flat so no problem. Some of the tee boxes were lacking grass and no beverage cart on course. Went by restroom on the course and it was locked. Greens ran around an 8 and I fixed five divots on every green. I probably won't be back.

Grear Day

Really enjoyed the course. Pace was okay. Pretty dry considering the snow and rain we have gotten of late. At the turn people from the bar were over ordering food at the half way house in front of golfers making the turn. That was disappointing.

Recommend to all. Multiple tee boxes allow all levels of ability. Excellent shape and excellent value. I really don't have any negatives other than the middle of January carts were limited to the cart paths - - of course understood why that had to be done.

Feels like a pro

Every visit I make to Forest Oaks makes me and my game better. The atmosphere, conditions and layout will bring out the best in your game no matter if you play once a week or once a month. Fantastic greens and tee boxes along with well groomed fairways. Always a great experience.
Thank you

Golfer friendly

I liked everything I saw at this club. The course was golfer friendly, not too hard. The staff was wonderful and every thing including the driving range was clean and very nice. The lady in the halfway house was really great, fixed our food just right and so friendly to work with. Can not wait to get back to play another round with my grandson, that also really like the facility. Thank you for providing such a nice place to play golf.

Slow Play Spoils Good Course

Always enjoy playing this course and applaud the wonderful improvements that have been made by new owners. Course is in very good condition, with fast greens and tight fairways. The main concern has been very slow play. Yes it was windy and yes everyone had problems finding balls in the leaves, but no reason for a 4:45 hr minute round . Every course needs to be aware of this issue and have someone available to ride the course if needed to move players along. Slow play is the number one complaint from golfers and clubs have to make an effort to help alleviate the problem.
