Forest Hills Golf Course is a nine-hole, par-36 course. This regulation-length layout was designed by Jack Kidwell, a familiar name in central Ohio. Kidwell grew up in the area and designed many of the state's courses. The course rolls across gentle hills but it is surprisingly easy to walk. The layout features narrow fairways and small greens that require some accuracy but overall it is a player-friendly course. There aren't any water hazards and only a few bunkers come into play. It provides some good practice for beginners but it also provides a quick, casual round for more advanced players that is still satisfying. The par-5 eighth hole is one of Forest Hills Golf Course's most memorable. This tricky hole requires a tee shot up a narrow dogleg left fairway.

Course closed

I made a tee time on golf now about an hour before. Drove to the course only to find out that no one was there, the doors were locked, and the phone just rang and rang. This was on July 4th.
To make matters worse I can't get GolfNow to respond on getting me a refund!

Not worth your time

This course was not worth the time let alone the money. Spend just a few more dollars and play 18 at the many other local courses. Fairways were very rough and thick. Greens were not well kept and extremely slow. No cart paths at all. Sand traps full of overgrowth well over a foot tall. Tee boxes were fair to average aside from the marker being a painted rock.

Nice course don’t use group now

Wound up paying for more golf through GroupNow. Played 2 weeks ago and cart free was included which price with fees came to about $14 with GolfNow. Today bought the same GolfNow and was told cart fee wasn’t included in GroupNow price. All in paid about $20. Actually price if you show up at course to walk is $11 and with cart is $17 so lost money today which for a foursome added up. The course is a fun And challenging 9 hole course and the staff is great!
