Monsoon Rains at Forest Hills
We were having a great round through six holes when the monsoon rains washed us out. Never seen rain like this in Lacrosse before, it was quite a day! We'll try again tomorrow!
All was good until ranger yelled at us for holding up play at 9 for absolutely no reason. Our group of 4 was playing at a pace of 1:35 per 9 until we had to wait a 1-2 minutes per hole starting at 5. We hit one ball OB at 9 in the ranger’s eyesight and we looked for the ball to make sure it was OB for 3 minutes while the group behind us was still on 8th green, and we get verbally abused by the ranger for holding up play and to get moving.
Our group a collective 33 handicap (5, 7, 9, 12) and we play fast. Without being held up we would have completed the 9 holes in 1:35. Ranger was extremely rude and called us liars.
Never going back again and I would not recommend this course to anyone. I have never been treated this poorly and I golf 80 rounds per year in a lot of different places. Even in instances where we have been behind the allotted time per 9 holes all you need is a gentle reminder and you pick up the pace as a group.
I have heard similar complaints about this course from different people but this is the first time I had to experience that and I have too many options to have to worry about experiencing that kind of garbage while golfing.
Beautiful bluff views. Course was in good condition. Always thought of playing here. Glad I did. Not from the LaCrosse area.
Course is in Excellent condition
Greens are amazing. Pace of play was a little slow but not horrible. Course is in great shape. Great job Keith, Josh and the entire crew keeping the course in great shape and the Clubhouse Professional and friendly.
Good challenging golf
Very interesting and challenging layout. Fairways and greens in great shape. Staff very friendly and helpful. Although I’m from Arizona, I hope to play it again before we head back. Would definitely recommend this course!
Greens were awesome
Other than the greens, the course is in the worst condition I've seen in a long time. Yes it's been dry but it's more than that. They should close the course for an entire year and fix the "Problem Spots" once and for all instead of the Band Aid approach.
Some of the spots need total reconstruction and possibly a water retention pond or two along with drain tile.
This keeps happening every year and it's always the same ole same ole.
Sorry, I wasn't going to "Sugar Coat " it.
Also I used Golf Now and they charged me $20.05 for a cart for 18. Another local course is including carts as they did pre Covid and yet another is only charging $10 for a cart for 18.
I think Kemper Golf needs to be a little more realistic about the course condition and how what they are charging due to the shape of the course.
Dont waste your time
Pro shop boy was rude and didnt know what he was doing. Fairways were either bare or swampy. Not worth the money
This is a good course to play a round of 9 or 18!
I really enjoy forest hills it’s fun and challenging at the same time.
All around excellent course
Both fairways and greens were in great shape. Beautifully set in old woods along side of towering bluffs, which provided for many sloping fairways. Front.9 relatively easy, but back 9 is challenging. No restaurant services or driving range, but there is a par 3practice hole and putting green.
The gnates are awful. Bitten several despite deet spray
Course was in perfect shape. The new layout is a big improvement. Will play a couple more times this year.
